    Looks like a chocolate bar. I want to eat it. :tongue:

    Nice looking KJ. The '05s look great. Didn't like them at first, but now I do!

    I like the front bumper but i hate the placement of the fog lights. Seems less effective at that location.
    That bumper looks like it would be easier to do a mod new bumper than compared to the `04.

    My granddad always ended up with brown vehicles because he was color blind and thought that they were green. I do like the brown, and it does remind me of a chocolate bar, lol. =D>

    IMO, the 05's look alot better with the body colored grill, the bling grill looks kinda out of place on them.....but all of them have really grown on me in the past couple of months.


    That color is pretty awesome! \:D/

    yeh, we spoke about that during the last Meet n greet we had....
    o4rckymtn was saying maybe with how the new bumpers are, there would be less trimming on bigger sized tires......

    hey jeepkj'ers thanks for the comments!

    the dark khaki pearl coat is an interesting color, at times it does look green (cloudy days), and at times it looks black...looks best on sunny days and at night i think. it's nice to have a color that is different from others out there

    btw the body color grille was done by the dealer the day we picked up the car, was a swap from a sport on the lot, at no charge. all it took was some insistence that this a dealbreaker for us and some negotiation to get it done

    how's the window button placement treatin you?
    Dont understand why they had to move them to more less ergonomic spot...(IMO)

    also, what colours does the guage light up?....would like to see a shot of that lit up....

    I don't like those new gauges........or the new window switch location. Nothing personal....it's a Libby so I still love it.

    hey jjo, we are long time western pa'ers (oakmont native, last 6 yrs in regent square), very recently transplanted to philly,...being subjected to eagles super bowl hype all this week, salt in the wound...we're still driving back and forth a lot thus the new PA easypass

    my 92 cherokee was white with gray interior and my wife's honda is black with gray interior so we knew we wanted some kind of tan on the insides, we like this color combo a lot

    the window control placement has taken some getting used to, kept reaching for the doors at first, were finding it easier now. i cant really compare it to where it was in prev models. and heck my XJ had manual windows and locks so i'm still getting used to having power at all :)

    will take and post a night shot of the guages when i get a chance

    I love the look of the new gauges, with the exception of one thing. Why did they move the tach to the right and the speedo to the left? Maybe it's just me, but I like the tach on the left, and the speedo on the right. I love the window controls on the center console cause when i'm resting my arm there, I don't have to move it that much to roll down the window, nor take my left hand off the 12 o'clock position of the wheel (now all I need to do is recline my seat all the way back, and I can cruise in style!!!!) \:D/

    None the less, still a KJ, and it still gets all the respect ours do. I am really diggin that color though. My light kahki (technicaly a green if you ask Chrysler) changes colors too. Kinda tan in the sun, and a green in the shade. Really cool!
