It’s an 05 X 4.0L 6-speed manual with only 79,000 miles. It’s pretty well unmolested outside of an aftermarket headunit, fog lights, and CAI. Absolutely zero rust everything that has a rust color is surface rust from being parked outside at the dealership. Everywhere I rubbed that looked like rust fell off like dirt on the surface, no flakes.

New Tan soft top was order by the dealership and should be in this week. Currently replacing the sound system with some equipment I had plus some adapters from Crutchfield.

Factory sub was completely missing the rubber surround. Here it is next to the replacement. Outside of sound system I’m thinking just clean it up a bit on the interior and probably put some 31’s on the stock rims. The front tires have a 2013 date code and the rear are 2016 so I want to replace the fronts but might as well all around right?

Again this is a toy and the plan is to get it fairly trust worthy and comfortable enough with it to be my “primary” vehicle and in a couple months/years replace the primary i3 with a 996 or 997 depending on our financial situation.

Word to the wise be careful with your free time browsing because used dealerships seem to be very motivated if you offer cash in the current economic climate. I was looking at both TJ’s and 996’s and cash seemed to bring down the asking price much quicker than any other counteroffer tactics.

What should I do to the TJ? What about name suggestions? Can anyone guess the color code?
