It's got a little rust on one side but is pretty solid. Only has about 85k on it and came with a folder of repair qnd maintenance records. Its just the 2wd so just plan on cleaning it up and having a fun truck to haul mulch or whatever. I'm in the Midwest so plan on coating the underside.
I'm thinking about doing the same minus the squanch. Leaning towards 2.7 but would like to see the mpg numbers.
I'm not sure if I would like the 35s on long road trips and for what I do im not sure I would need them. Can also easily upgrade to 35s with the badlands I think.
Would like to add...
I wish the marine vinyl, larger screen and speakers were options on more trims.
Was thinking black diamond for the vinyl but the lux package isn't available for that so I have to go up to a badlands to get the speakers.
I always thought this this was overblown or due to people putting crappy lifts on or whatever. Until I rented a JL for the week in the Mojave. Thing was stock with around 20k on it and got the death wobble on the highway and scared the shit out of everyone. Also was a pain to drive at speed.
