It's a auto but I figured why not I'm not planning on keeping it for to long.
I'll keep it till the Jetta is done. Then sell the Cherokee then put the money towards the ranger.

You should you seem like a ford lover and ford lovers hang out with ford lovers so the tow points will help get your ford loving buddies broken fords off the very beginning of the trail :D

Bumper looks good

But be careful Jeeps are kinda like most of the guys here, at first you hate them but the more time you spend in them the more you'll enjoy being in them oh yeah

Well been driving the jeep around for a couple days and found that I have a brake light problem
They only work sometimes, so Ill be looking into that tomorrow night
Since my last update i have fixed the passenger side door handle, turned out to be a bent rod. So I swapped it out for one out of the spare doors
http://i978.photobucket.com/albums/ae264/hockeyryan775/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_67631_zps27c9b2a1.jpg

Also I decided to see what the flex was like so I disconnected the swaybars to have a looksee
http://i978.photobucket.com/albums/ae264/hockeyryan775/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_39811_zpsd490a105.jpg

Well today I started my rear storage box
Its going to be a two piece box so I can have a removable piece
