My new CJ

Ok, here are a couple of pics. This first one is after I got it home and off the trailer.



This one is after I got the lift on, the new 35" tires, bumpers, and side rails on.


I still have a few loose ends to tie up before it is street legal, I am running into a few issues with the wiper switch and motor. I hope to get that figuered out soon. This will be my new "DD" and as soon as it is legal the YJ is sold. Then it is back to work on the Waggy.

Before anyone else mentions it, I know it is Olive Drab...I had put money down on this when I was deployed and before I knew Pat was painting his the same color. It must be the color to paint your Jeep if it doent run.

That looks sweet!
I had a parking brake like that for a CJ-5.
And the upper door color, nutmeg, will always be one of my favs.
