Wow..thanks 😉 I know a couple of people who could use that list… And good luck on getting your Jeep. You know, I heard the new Wrangler type models are supposed to be put on the market with 33″ tires!!! I’m kinda jealous since I had to PAY for mine after the fact. Well..I guess stuff just keeps getting better and Jeeps are no exception.
The Wrangler Unlimited, model years 2004 – 2006 is coded the “LJ”.
