theres this one trail i always used to catch a little bit of air off of in the old XJ's.

so not doing it in the WJ though

Installing HID's in stock housings is bad. Here is why.

I agree. The jump is not that much of one at all. I would think there were problems before the jump. It just finished it off is all.

I would think my axles could deal with quite a bit now. The suspension's not really for that kind of thing but it could handle some mild jumps just fine now.

I would never want to come down as hard as that Red XJ though.

I got like 4" of air not going real fast last year in my WJ and my timing chain slipped so much more can happen than just axle damage.

haha when i bought the jeep i think it had gotten into a accident because the left side bumper frame was torn up when i took the bumper cover off and before the jump it had always sagged to the right so i think the jumpin the jeep in pismo didnt help one bit but hey it was fun, i learned my lesson... at that point in time i was young and learned to never beat up the jeep that bad again.

And we all know when something breaks its always a good excuse to upgrade haha when my tire popped i said ahh eff it lets get a 4.5" lift and some bigger tires ahha. Now this went i am thinkin ahh eff it time to upgrade axles and than get the IRO LA kit and some 35's and ill be set haha.

As for upgrades how does the combo of a hp30 and d44 sound? People on some other forums suggested it.
