    TJ guy just grabbed a built JK

    Hey all Iíve not been on here in very long time. To say Iím a noob is an understatement LOL
    Even though Iíve had fun with a simple TJ with sad 4Ē lift with 33ís and limited wheeling for 12 years I have much to learn.


    Ok to the point.......
    I just picked up a SICK 2008 JK 2 door sport with 50k.
    Have no idea what I have. Itís got a long arm kit with coilovers fox shocks in rear. 1 tons with D44ís front and back. Arb locker in rear only. Evo skids in rear for shock mounts. Crazy welded trusses with holes on top both front and rear axels. Not sure of lift size, poison spyder stuff everywhere warn 8k recovery sitting on procomp 40ís. Poison spyder stinger. Line-x paint job inside and out. Banks header and exhaust. B&M shifter arb compressor under hood. Lots of rigid industries LEDís nice sound system. Seats are heated power leather out of a wrx. LEDí for all lighting. The rear seems cut and not stock at all. I donít know what itís called but the gas filler neck has been relocated. Iím sure there is more.


    The bad. Every light on dash is on but thing runs mint. No DW or anything 6 speed stick goes 75 on highway no problem.


    Sound like I know what I have but not so much.
    But I saw it and I HAD to have it Plus my TJ frame is u drivable


    I need to know I made a good choice and didnít pay too much
    If I can figure out how to post some pics I will do so to help this inquiry further.
    Any input good or bad Iíll listen
    Thanks everyone ✌🏼

    Looks good. What makes you think you bought a mall crawler? At least it wouldn't be abused.

    Isn't that what these forums are for???
    The beginner, novice and experienced? Even for those over their heads.

    Pay too much? Some may say yes, others no. How do you feel about it? Buyer remorse? Honestly, you own it there is no looking back.
    Have fun and move on.

    I just read online a guy asking 30s for a built JK rig claiming to have over 80k in it.
