Super easy install with the right tool. :lol:
Took about 20 minutes taking my time making sure everything lined up nicely.

Holy difference. I’m excited to drive home from the in-laws and see how the difference is.
Did you just do the front risers?
Yeah, just the fronts and I have both pieces in for a 1” raise.

'pecs and Zill up in here making me want to :wasteful: on muh Jeep. The stock poverty lighting is kinda meh TBH. It's funny, I have done so little night driving outside of in town in the :poorvette: it's never really bothered me that the lighting is trash... the Jeep being more of our 'adventure vehicle' of sorts, sometimes it's very dark and tough to navigate.

Definitely hope to take it for a spin. The poo Bimmer is my daily. We'll move the GMT800 to MX full time.

How did it get to 87? Weird. They are fully loaded minus the power roof ... 73-77k should be it...

He got the double roof option, I'll post the build sheet when I get it.

:sad: No plans to get rid of this thing with 165K on it. I have spent the money along the way to fix all the little shit like broken overhead map light switches, folding mirrors, etc., so there's never some sort of "old truck has too much wrong with it" mentality. Latest old car thing is the 5th speed on the blower took a dump....I think its the resistor. No rust because of location. I put on a bull bar that matches the factory side steps and got the Black Oak LED mounted. Had a bit of a "Desert Dumbshit" moment with the electrical on that but I'll tell that story after I get it cleaned up and take some pics.

My pops just didn’t have much of a need for this anymore. He’s loving the S5 and he drives that all the time; it’s a much easier DD for him than the 996 was.
Retired and doesn’t need to go anywhere and when he does he likes to have some fun.

Yeah I'm a little :notsure: on continuing to increase the fleet and its attendant operational/monthly costs but at least I'll be able to pull the GMT800 off the US Insurance roll when I move it south full time. I should off the Bimmer but I've finally consumed almost the entirety of the depreciation shit sandwich so I might as well run it. New German Cars. Never again.

Vroom offered $42,650 for our JL. We paid $41k for it 1.5 years ago and put 9k miles on it. It's gone.

Yep. I was never that :fuckyeah: on our JL anyway. It's the most basic, common config ever. Even the wife admitted that she wished it was a different color.

Might buy another in a year if we need another vehicle, who knows.

Can you get plates on a side by side? That’s the better way to go for a second vehicle for you guys.

That's what the wife wants BAD. She saw them bombing around out west and she's hooked. We have more trails for SxS's than anything else in our region, so it would get a lot of use. People have told us you can plate them, but I haven't looked into it much and I don't see many running around so I'm :notsure: Will be looking into it for sure because it would be an ideal 2nd car since it could go to our local market on backroads easy. Just not in the winter...

Right now the debate is what to do if I need to take the truck downstate for work. It's a need that's still :notsure: as of now.
