It's official, I am a Jeep owner again

We had to sell the JK a while back as most of you already know. We saved up some pennies and bought this last week!

Looks good, glad to see you back in a Jeep. I know for my short 4 years of Jeep ownership, I wouldn't want to be Jeepless ever again.

........My other hobbies include: Older cars and trucks; Spending money on unfinished projects, and continuing to not finish them...

Well this might turn into a build thread? Decided to rip everything apart and line it.

Ran into a couple problems pulling seats, damn bolts snapped off at the head, that was fun. Should have a finished photo in a day or two.

So i got all the rolling down tonight, tomorrow i will spray and paint the tight areas. I am pretty excited for this stuff, my neighbor gave it to me, it runs $250 a gallon, his previous employer got it for him, it is used on the decks of battleships, i think it will hold up on my Jeep

It is a bit grittier than the regular bed liners i am used to, but it feels bomb proof. I am going to finish off the rest of the areas with a OTC rattle can product.

Finished spraying tonight. I am really happy with the outcome (yes i did finish spraying the little bit of blue you see). I really feel like i this stuff is bombproof! It is insanely thick and so far has dried just the way i want it. Next step loom some wires and get it back on the road!

I need to talk to EAD Offroad, think i am upgrading tie rod and some other components in the front.

Looks awesome! Love my LJ even after owning 2 JK's.

Beagsjeep. The only thing I suggest is look for a yr previous 05' because the 05/06 have OPDA issues. Failures have resulted in blow engines and most of the Wranglers from 05/06 are out of warrant. JeepForum has a lot of info on the problem.

I have a TJ and a JKU. I guess I'll need to post it up, once I can find some pics.
