I suppose I will chronicle the progression of our family's JK.
We purchased the 2007 JK just after thanksgiving as a replacement for my last jeep; a 2000 XJ. Now that I have it, I'm wondering why I didn't buy one sooner!
It is a 2007 JK Sahara in Rock Red color with a tan hard top. It is currently wearing General Grabber AT2 rubber on stock 18" wheels.
I would like to build a simple yet comprehensive vehicle that can support me, my wife and 4 1/2 yr old daughter for between a weekend and a week.
