Long time Jeeper just Scored a 2008 JKU

Great forum! I just picked up a sweet 2008 JKU X 84,000 miles, dual tops, 2" lift, factory rear Tru-Lok and factory swaybar disconnect it spent most of its life in TX, so that's a big bonus for a Northeast Jeep

Going to do some light wheeling with it, and keep the mods to a minimum, but we all know how that goes


my other ride is a 1948 Willys painted ANVIL
its running a 4.3 chevy, a few other goodies

btw there isnt no sense in blocking out license plate number. If you click on your photo it takes you to your photobucket account where theres more pics of your jeep. You might want to make it private. just another heads up lol. Not that it matters. good looking jeeps i like my 08. Had to put a aftermarket trany cooler on it. It was getig overheated just offroading. got any questions feel free to ask.

When I bought it the owner said the soft top was complete, he only used it a couple summers. I checked though the parts and I was missing a couple brackets and 2 of the surround pins. I called the prev owner to see if he had them. He could not find them, but ordered them and had them shipped to my house. Nice to see their Are some people that sick by their word.

Soft top goes in this weekend!
