Maiden Voyage

The jeep is 99% complete now (atleast 99% complete for the initial build ). Took her for a spin around the block and over a few dirt piles....what a cool feeling with no doors and no top ...kind of like a big 4wheeler with a roll cage.

the dirt piles were interesting though. I have yet to remove my track bars and that may be part of the issue but it seems as soon as one of my tires left the ground, the Jeep would be stuck. I know lockers are the ultimate answer to this so Im curious what you reccomend for lockers? I dont think I can swing more than 3-4 hundred right now so I need to keep it cheap. I wont be wheeling a ton but when I do I want to be able to go wherever I want...entry-mid level wheeling that is.

Anyways, it feels good to have it on the road and have everything holding up.....tub swaps suck
