I'll keep that in mind if the RIT dye doesnt cover as well as i hope.

Finally scored a dark Agate center console tonight... been looking for quite some time. This ebay guy has a ton of Jeep parts.

Re: Thought i'd share the new rig..

Just transferred the tag and titled the ZJ. Now i just need to get it inspected.

Received my center console today, UPS Gorilla's struck again! The armrest was busted off it, the little pieces of plastic still in the box. Contacted the ebay seller alljeepparts and asked if he had another. He doesnt, so he refunded my purchase. This guy is amazing, his customer service is second to none. When i bought and paid for it on ebay, i had a tracking number within twenty minutes... @10PM!, and my email was responded to within minutes today and refund issued minutes later. I'll definately be doing business with him again. He has a large ebay store... check him out if you need something. alljeepparts

Re: Thought i'd share the new rig..

Johnny has wheels under his ass again! Took the ZJ in for state safety and emissions testing and passed.

It's been since last August that i'v had a vehicle i wasnt scared to drive thinking it was gonna leave me stranded. I kept throwing parts and labor at the XJ.. but i couldnt trust it. I think i have since found the issue and will address it before the rear axle gets transferred to this Jeep.
