gonna fix the rear and redo the front LA joints here next. Built a tree stand instead of roof rack. Deer season is really close to being here. Needed a few things so that's set me back too. You know how that is.

No sir. There better not be one like mine haha. Haven't seen one. There's a purpleish one on 35s kinda like mine. It's bigger and has a winch bumper though.

it sure is nice to have gearing! LOL. Im running 5.13's with 35's and getting about 17 MPG highway. (im running D60's btw). Just wondering what kind of MPG's you get. You never know, like in my dads TJ (33's, 4cyl, 4.10's) gets like 12, and its a 5spd!

And one more thing, is it just me or did you have like three different lift kits? I love that black grill and maroon body. I think Im going to paint my grill black (moss green).

I average around 16. Went on a 100ish mile round trip drive today through the mountians. I averaged around 16 all the way and I was in 3rd quite a bit. It did change gears quite a bit but not reall anymore than it did when I was on 32s and stock gearing driving the same roads.

Yeah I started with a 4" CAGE and swapped all of it out as quick as I could for random stuff.

Ive got 6.5" Rustys coils, Rough Country 4.5" leafs, Rustys 1.25" shackles, RE monos out back, Pro Comp MX6 monos up front, and custom LAs.

Ive tested quite a few companys' parts haha.

Well, been doing a lot of hunting and not much work on the Heep.


And after about 8 months of being affraid it finally happened...Broke my Rusty's track bar(suprise, suprise). Snapped at the jam nut.

Good news is I called IRO and they have me a double shear HD bar and bracket coming in today! I'll snap some pics of the install and the carnage later this evening.


Luckily it broke when I was in the parking lot at work. Aint been able to drive the Jeep since Tuesday...


Here soon Im going to add a few things to my LAs to keep them good for another little while as well as bumpers with my tax resturn in Feb.
