I just put on 33s probably never go bigger. I'm looking for better gas mileage. If I need more crawling power I will install a clutch ring.

well... I was looking online for a boonie hat since I left mine in a bar this weekend when I was drinking too much. This was my favorite Jeeping hat!



I loved this hat! So I went to the local Army Navy surplus store and tried to find a new one... they were out... grrr! I did see some cool dust goggles though and remembered King of the Hammers and a few times I was out in the desert and the wind turned my eyeballs into sand paper relics. I bought a pair but then thought about how cool my Jeep is and will be once I get my build complete and thought about finding a sweet pair that will match my Hammered Finish Black n chrome Jeep when I am out wheeling...


I started checking around on net and found this:
http://www.etsy.com/shop/jadedminx?section_id=12579031

from that link I found this sweet set up:


also... I found my boonie hat online and ordered another one! I can't wait to wear this out in the desert with my new goggles and gas mask and then pull into a gas station and see the look on everyone's faces

Lol yea your right, but still I can handle 700.00 for a nice pretty axle that all I have to do is install.

stabilizers only mask the issue of loose steering componets. i know many guys that dont run staabilizers at all and their rigs drive great on the road. its all about your tres and balljoints being tight, steering aligned, tires balanced and all that jazz

The more of a band aid on a gsw as mentioned. Proper steering angles are going to be your best remedy.
