NIce looking truck, the black and grey go good together, not to mention too loudly the driver and the truck.

i was driving it at the 72 hour mark of ownership :)

and im sure she will have the same issue with this truck that she does with her current ride (99 cherokee 5" lift and 32's). Everywhere whe goes, some dude talks to her about her car. Especially gas stations. She would never be broke down on the side of the road for more than 30 seconds.

I used Meguiars #40 on the floor before i put the seats in. Just sprayed a little on a microfiber cloth and wiped. makes it a little slippery but returns the dark black look to it. the slippery will go away after a week or so

buy her XJ then, it will be for sale in a week or so

It will be for sale as soon as the ranger is ready to drive daily, and i clean the crap out of it (not to the same level that the ranger was cleaned though haha) Starting at $5500, as it seems thats about what they are bringing in with a lift and similar mileage. My buddy just sold his with the same lift and stock tires with 180k for $6k

I'll have to give it a try.

I wish I could, If it was in my budget I'd be all over it. How many miles?

Approaching 160 if memory serves me correct. There is not a fluid or brake pad on that Jeep that has been in/on it for more than 20k miles, and i just rebuilt the rear axle last winter. It is maintained well

160k is nothing for it..want so bad. not a fan of the 8.25 rear, the 8.8 is a nice swap.
