Oh, and in response to another post above: no mention of lockers in that particular eBay ad..l
I didn't read it, I just saw the mechanical levers for the F/R lockers: the round knob things next to the brake lever.

I saw what appears to be a Pinzgauer 4x4 with a for sale sign on it in my neighborhood recently. I'm gonna have to go get a closer look at it if it's still there.

Uhh, I've done it quite a bit. The "AS1 Line" on a windshield are markings to show how far down it's ok to do (legal here even in repressive VA). I had it done on my original Wrangler windshield as I get migraines and every little bit of glare reduction helps.

Just because you don't do it doesn't mean there isn't a justifiable reason others do.

My friend did it to his LS430. It looked pretty sweet, but I could. not. see. ****. at. night. I hated driving it.

My eyes are really sensitive to light too, so you'd think it would have been a boon for me.

I'm 6'4"... so you think my head would have to be lower to benefit?

I will say that I briefly had a windshield that did not have the factory "eyebrow" and it was miserable. That is totally essential to me, though you wouldn't think it. His LS has the entire windshield done.

lower to make it not annoying, that's for sure. my head hits the headliner in my current car, but only in the morning when my back is stiff as a board from sleeping.

The folks in Guatemala and Honduras tint the windscreen like that save for a part the size of a postcard that is not tinted for tunnel vision viewing pleasure at night. I'll have to dig up the photos from my overland trip from Belize to Panama.

My WRX had one similar to yours, PGT. I didn't like it at first but once I got used to it, I loved it.

Tacky aftermarket leather, steering wheel, cheapo intake, terrible generic heated seat and power door lock switches that is very out of place. Who's counting anyways?

well, they "invested $40K"! more like set fire to $40k. I'd redo a lot of it....found a nicer proper four door in WA that just sold for the same $$$ so just goes to show what patience brings.

as with a decision a decade ago to buy a new Wrangler vice an 8yo D90, one would be hard-pressed to buy used British or German for the same money as a new JK, if logic and fiscal responsibility enter your equation. That's always the conundrum; "cool" is trumped by not wanting to buy a money-pit.

^ Yes please!

On an unrelated note, I had one of the 'tards at work telling me that all Wranglers only came with a 3 speed auto.

Le sigh.

Are you out to buy an LJ or are you looking around for just general 4x4 action?

What are you looking to do? Interested in a built rig?

You just have a band of tint at top, right? The eBay G-wagen has the whole damn thing blacked out. Big difference.

yes, just the AS1 line. The G-wagen didn't look blacked out to me but could be wrong.

THoughts on the Wrangler MW3 Edition? They seem to be sitting on dealer lots. Providing a good discount is possible, is it worth the $$ over an optioned Rubi? I don't care for the bading and would remove it...strictly talking about the AEV parts and 100% factory warranty vs. buying an Arctic Edition and putting similar AEV stuff on it.

ROFL. We've had parallel tracks on cars for awhile...figured it would look "odd" if we had another matching pair. People would start to talk...

Besides.....Raptor don't 'vert.

The only parts you couldn't add yourself for cheaper would be the leather seats and guages. Everything else is just a AEV / mopar aftermarket part.

Guys, please tell me to not buy a new camera and to put the money into my Jeep. I need some peer pressure.

I know this is the Jeep thread, but no way. Cameras are a potential revenue source that hardly depreciate and can be tax deductible. Cars... are none of those things.

Buy the camera, take pictures of Pippa Middleton, get paid, get 60" tires.
