I definitely am biased in my liking of your color scheme. I did the exact same thing except my truck is grey but same as yours with black lower panels and black topper.

 

Great looking truck!

My truck has been up to some mischief recently so I thought Id share some pics. here's a few weekends ago when I met up with some of my buddies to go offroading at Butcher Jones in AZ. My truck fared really well and besides some occasional rubbing i had no problems getting over anything:

here's some pics from last weekend when I snuck my truck into a classic car meet that was going on where I worked. All 3 of our trucks being tan was just a coincidence but a very happy one:

Probably because music these days sucks @$$.......They've changed their sound but I love the self titled album. Gotta love those old crusty bastards still jamming anot not charging a fortune to see them or by a crappy shirt for $50 bucks.

First off thanks to @eaglescout526 for giving me these Hella 550 driving lights, I think they look great on my truck and after a few hours of messing around with wires I got them up and running! I also cleaned out my cluster gauges while I was installing the relay switch in the dash and they look brand spankin new.

I really need to start updating this with everything @eaglescout526 and I have done to it but gosh darn I am just lazy and always forget. Some good news though, I passed emissions! I'm not entirely sure why but when they tested me all they did was test my gas cap and idle it for about 45 seconds. I think they were under the impression I had a full time 4x4 (awd?) and wouldnt be able to run it on the dyno but hey I'm not complaining. Ive got some more pictures from various camping trips ive taken recently and some updates on small parts here and there ive fixed/upgraded as well so Ill be sure to include pictures of those as well.

Nothing big to really update on, I finally started buying suspension parts to get me to 9" of lift and hopefully rolling on 37's today. I also scored some MJ original chrome tow mirrors for 70$, I'm not sure if I'm going to put them on or not but I figured for the price it wasnt a bad thing to have on hand. My AC finally died right as summer started to kick off here in AZ and when I took it to get fixed (all it needed was a recharge) a line running from my heater core to the expansion valve cracked turning a 120$ freon refill job into a 1.2K "tear out the dash and replace the heater core" job which i quickly declined. I could probably replace the heater core myself but honestly i don't plan on dailying my truck anymore as I work from home now so it probably won't have AC for awhile, id rather use the money for other upgrades. Another note for those of you who might be looking to sell your MJ, theyre definitely up in value right now. Just for fun i posted mine for sale asking $8000 and sure enough I had several people offering at least 7k, and one guy who actually came to see it in person and offered 7500 cash. I turned him down of course but still I thought it was interesting as I paid only 4500$ for it in much better condition than it is right now haha. here's where I plan on posting updates related to the process of me lifting/building out my truck in case you wish to follow it!
