Sweet looking TJ, good proportions, nice combination of parts so far.

lockers then a winch would be good, BUT first, put a CB in that baby.

PS: I'm from Goodrich, hope i see your rig in Ortonville some time when i pass through.

it probably didn't help that you were consulting me on IM. LOL

but hey i always say..........pay up and do it right the first time, or end up paying more down the road to fix what you screwed up by cheaping out. i know that from experience....build one jeep no expense spared and it's beautiful. the other one i cheaped out on everything and it rides like crap.

Looks great man! I thought I liked all black the best but now I'm not so sure, that color with those wheels and tires really looks good.
