A trip through time.....
 
Hey guys!

Well, I figured Marlin's idea for a gallary thread was an awesome idea, so here goes...

I bought this Jeep in September 2007 and it was a very, very clean example. No scraches, dents etc, but it did have a couple of stone chips on the hood (which were touched up easily - thanks to Dr. Color Chip!).

Here she is after the Winter prep:

I believe one of my first mods was to buy a Laredo grille, you can see this in the engine pic - I kept this for a while but I went back to a Limited/Overland one.

SRT Reps fitted (April '09):

And as she sits now:

Here's a couple of pics from the sub-station. There were taken with my iPhone, got to site and realized the memory card wasn't in the camera - I was gutted.... :mad: Need to plan another road-trip now! :lol:

The shifters and e-brake aren't stock no, they are made by a German company called Startech.
I've added the original interior photo to the first post. :)

Thanks for the kind words guys! I might take the Jeep on a road trip on Thursday (work related, in a sub-station) so should get some better pics then! :cool:

Do you use those tires year round? How are they in the snow and bad weather?

Ive been looking at them but still unsure.

Great stuff Marty!
Lovely clean Jeep man, and I really dig that colour, it's a very "modern" colour if you know what I mean?
5 stars! :)

I will be putting on the old wheels for Winter - wearing Wrangler F1s. I would happily use those tires in the Winter though (snows not much of a problem TBH), but I think the salt would ruin the wheels.

I am thinking of getting the power coated/painted silver next year for all year useage though. :D
