OK, here are the pics:









And here's the specs:

2005 Wrangler X, black, half doors, black soft top, black interior, 46 k miles, 6 cylinder, 6 speeed manual, AC, single CD player, and all the rest of the stock equipment.

Now as you can probably tell right away by the wheels, this will NOT be a trail rig. The dealer had just finished putting these wheels and tires on as I got there, and they tried to jack up the price accordingly; but I think I held my ground pretty well.

I have promised my wife to never go wheeling again, and I will hold myselff true to that promise.

Congrats Ed. Looks like a great Jeep. It would look better with a lift though....

The tool boxes have a propensity to be very noisey if not packed tightly. (Of course I had a loose Burnz-O-Matic torch rolling around in one of them.)

I should have given you a word of caution about the tool boxes: Mount the tool boxes so you can read the combination from the inside of the Jeep. With the top down in the summer it's very easy to read the combination from the side of the Jeep even though it's upside down. In the winter, with the top up, it's difficult to read an upside down combination (facing outwards) from the rear of the Jeep only.

Nice ride. I wish you well with it.

Does your promise mean you won't come able to come out and ride shotgun with any of us? Or does it just concern your driving?
