Kind of. I thought of just making my own though.

Led lights look good. Did you ever see the difference a headlight polish made to my lenses? They look new again.

Oh I see thanks for explaining......and here I thought I was being creative lol.

OT: brought it to work hoping to get the short arms on and ended up being busy most of the day. Hopefully tomorrow I'll get at least the lowers done.

Also thinking about swapping my JK wheels from the WJ to the niner. Found this pic earlier....is this someone on here's? Looks friggin badass!

In theory, this is true. However, in practice the traction condition is not always the perfectly sticky concrete track with sticky race slicks and lots of downforce, that you see in F1 and GP.

In situations where the grip limit is low, or difficult to discern, it can be faster to exceed the grip limit in a controlled drift at a high speed than to try to find and not exceed the grip limit. In a corner it may be impossible to find the grip limit, and in such a case the driver will always be slower than a well-executed slide.

This is why, especially in rally, you do see a lot of drifting in professional racing. Even in GT racing, there's a lot of subtle 4-wheel drifting, due to the nature of the vehicle aerodynamics. It's faster in those cars to drive with the wheels slipping slightly, than to stay below the grip limit.





Anyway, today I replaced the batteries in my keyfob. Long-range lock/unlock ftw!

Received a call this morning from my mom, whose been driving my ZJ. Apparently to get out of a parking spot, she put it in "4-wheel drive". She asked if I'd ever experience hopping with the tires before, turns out she'd been driving it in part time 4 wheel drive. Since my 242 swap, my linkage has always had some problems, so now its stuck in 4 part time until I crawl underneath it.

And this is why nobody else is allowed to drive my Jeep.

I let my wife drive my ZJ whenever. The rule is as long as she doesn't adjust the seat, she's good. I taught her to use my electric fan as well as the transfer case, if the weather deems that necessary. She hasn't driven it recently, nor have I. Upon my last inspection, I found a torn boot on the TRE at the end of the draglink. I have the TRE to replace it; I don't have the time. Maybe I can get to it in a couple of weeks, when I'm finally home from all this traveling for work. It's due for an oil change and tire rotation as well.

Like I said, it's all for satire.
