A tribute to a friend.

For those of you who have not seen my previous jeep in the "other rides" section i figured i would post a link here. The thread is too big to copy sorry.

Please take a look and feel free to ask any questions. I dumped my heart and soul in to this last jeep and it broke my heart to give it up and part it out. maybe one day i will build another.

Take a look gents.

My old Xj

Thanks.

Re: A tribute to a friend.

Did jeep ever make an XJ orvis or did you do that up?

Either way that thing is hot. Those black Moab wheels set it off w/ the dark green paint.

nice

Re: A tribute to a friend.

No, i did that custom. i was going to do the entire swap. Orvis tan and green seats with red trim. But i could never find Tan interior XJ parts for a 2 door (they are rare) so i got a deal on the WJ seats and threw them in. But the exterior is the right color so i changed all the emblems and trim to gold and bought the orvis emblems.

I painted the wheels a few months before i sold off the jeep.

The orvis grand cherokees were only available in moss green pearl (my color) or silver.

Re: A tribute to a friend.

I would get rid of my Overland before I got rid of my old Lifted ZJ.

It's like an old friend that has never ever let me down.
