Re: Just a few questions about YOUR Jeep...

1. What mod costs have surprised you the most?
I honestly havent had a mod surprise me with its cost. I do a LOT of research before I buy. Painting stuff is obnoxiously expensive, thats for sure.

Around 8K

3. How long has it taken you to get your Jeep to what it is today?

I started modding it a little over a year ago.

4. What do you hate most about your Jeep?

Thats a toss up between the fact that its not a SRT, and that the black is SO HARD to take care of.

5. What do you love most about your Jeep?

the fact that black is sooo sexy, and that it's done in a way that no one else has done. It's pretty much one of a kind.

6. What type of vehicle, if any, did you drive before your current Jeep?

a '94 jeep grand cherokee

7. What type of vehicle, if any, are you planning to purchase next?

an '08+ SRT8 grand

8. If you could paint your Jeep any color available, which color would it
be?

this one would stay black

9. What is your next mod going to be?

Back up camera

10. Why a Jeep Grand Cherokee?

I'm a jeep fan, and wranglers are a little small for me.

11a. Off Road Jeep owners - What is your honest opinion about SRT8's?

Love them, want one.
