I thought that since it was under the explorer section that it was concerning the explorers.

I have been wrong though

It's cool I'd love to see one myself. I crawled under so many explorers, and pried open a crap ton of doors just to end up saying f*** it, and having an 8.8 built with 3.07 gears.

That would be the "golden axle". Talked about but seldom seen. From my reading it's a Ranger FX4 from certain years and with some specific options including a 31 spline 8.8 with 4.56 gears.

It was a pipe dream to find one, but I'm strangely satisfied with my 307s. My buddy has a decently built rubicon and I have no problems keeping up with him

Sorry to revisit yesterdays conversation, but it sucks even worse when they use a different actor in the lead role! Even though Connery was the best, the Bond films may be the exception - and I'm hoping the Bourne sequel is too. Guess that doesn't count though, the new guy isn't Bourne.....

So...Been driving the YJ as a daily driver for about 3 months(my DD, a van...oh man, blown engine??)
The 1st time it has been used as such in 10 years.
I am getting about 16 mpg with mixed 70-/30, city/hiway driving. The same as it was when new to me in 1997.
It has 168,000 miles on it and is running like a new car.
I look at all those poor souls driving those prius's or the like and feel so much better.

And now it is gonna snow 6 inches.

I LOVE my Jeep...

How do you know its winter?

CAD threads... They're like snowflakes. Everyone thinks their problem is unique. In the end, it all looks the same from my couch.
