LOL! I certainly hope not!

Jeep yj Wrangler front aftermarket shackles 5" lift

Of course, they measure 5" from eye to eye, but the title made me laugh.

Could you imagine a 14" shackle?!?

Got the new(used) tires mounted y-day.
They were marked this side out on the rwl(raised white lettering), so I had them mounted that way, and the tire guy said he mounted them "backwards" , black out, for a customer and the guy came back a couple days later and had them rwl outed.
They were CHEAP and claims were made of only 200 miles total on them and they looked real good. 6 bills for the 4. Mounting balancing, and road hazard was another $150. Road hazard on used tires, thought that was pretty cool.
But now I kind of see why so cheap.
They seem like nice tires.
BUT...
Bling bling:



I think they are a bit blingy.

You don't have to mount the white side out :P

But those are damn good tires, we make them in my plant.

I think it got 10 votes.

I built it years ago so there isn't many help or how to from me now. Mostly how do I keep it running now.
But when I built it, this was the place.

There are a couple things on my list still.
If I want to jeep with a passenger(you all know) I have been told to put in a comfortable seat, or I can go by myself on the long ones.
I have a set of front tube flairs 1/3 done sitting on my workbench.
Also just poped out some real folding on it in the last few.
A new main shaft
A new fuel pump
4 new tires
Catalytic converter
Emissions tests
License plates

I was told to finish fixing the A/C like I said I would 2 years ago and then I may have a passenger .

All I need is a condenser and a recharge but it's still not done. Maybe now that we're living together and Windrock is so close.

I made a list of seats to look at at the junk yard.
I LIKE the way some look.

Leather.

I really like the Exploder leather seats, they are spiffy.
Grand Cherokee limited has some pretty cushy looking leather seats too.
Saw one guy who installed a set of beemer seats into his YJ.

WE are an inventive bunch.

What you think of leather seats in an off roader?
Besides the obvious bling factor...which I will indure for leather seats.
