Not from MI....

I bought it from Ohio where it was for the past few years. Prior to that it was from Arizona, 15 miles from the Mexican border. It's solid.... but cooked!

Someday I would like to get a new paint job and interior.... for now I'm enjoying driving it and showing it off the way that it is. Not many this solid in SE Michigan.

Step 1 was polishing the wheels getting ready for new tires



Step 2 was new tires.... off with the dry rotted 32x11.5 for a set of 33x12.5's



Step 3... someone painted the dash, I like the original color better. (I got most of the black off.... just never took a picture)



Step 4 getting rid of cooked paint and a buttload of filler. Just hit it with rattle can primer for now.... looks a lot better




I'm sure it will be a loooong process, but I smile every time I drive it!!

Just a paint remover from Meijer. It was in a plastic bottle.... my thought was it shouldn't hurt the dash.

Thanks!!

The J10 definitely has a unique presence the others don't!! The white JL has limited days left. I have a new 2019 Hella Yella JL Rubi coming.... with a power top!!!

NEW VS. OLD

UPWINGS,

please post a photo of the new jeep when it arrives
the color name sounds like it will look real good ! and i bet it does.
i have not seen many newer jeeps, but i do have an '04 RUBICON red 2dr
(the rubicon option has always looked great)

but the old FSJ's just have an appeal of their own....

Will do!! It is supposed to be built very soon. I work for FCA and it's an early 2019. I've been waiting, been painful. Was hoping to have the power top before the weather turned.... oh well
