    Thinking about a mustang...

    Been contemplating a mustang GT/Cobra convertible... the 99-04 gen are really affordable. I'm kinda getting burnt out on jeeps and would like to do something different...

    I'd be up for trading the YJ for one if the right one came along. but i think this year i sell the YJ and try something else for a change...

    I think you're going to get bored with a Mustang. Unless you race it or build it up there's not a whole lot you can do besides drive it like any other commuter car.

    I understand that. But your jeep is pretty nice. Can't you just put it aside for a while and keep it for when you want a jeep again?

    My buddy has a 06 GT convertable. It packs some serious power.

    I still rather have a jeep.

    If you're getting a cheap mustang, get a fox body. That is all.
    It's not illegal, it's frowned upon.

    You will deck it out with LED lighting and a stereo and then just sell it.

    Here's his horrible pics. I literally almost didn't go look at it. these pics make the wheels look like ricer 10 spokes. But they're awesome in person. deep dish and 10" wide out back (9 front). the paint looks awesome. the top is dark tan not white. the interior is better than he described. etc.





    in person the flames are way less offensive... but that hood may still get a wrap or vinyl to cover them.
