I used to show up imports with smoke. From the tail of my RX7. Because RX7s smoke at high RPM. That tail was all they'd see.

Then one day, driving home from school, it spun out. Differential bound up. 26 years old, it never got lubricated. It was not a babied car.

Sold it, bought a ZJ. FUN STUFF.

Should have room for more tire right? Mine had 35/22 open country when I bought it but it rode like crap so I put on 35/12.5/18 Mickey atzs for some sidewall. It never rubbed a bit and they where 18x9 with -12 offset badlands.

As weak as it is just took off, sanded and repainted my roof rack. On the docket for tomorrow figure out the wiring for my side mirror. The original one's post that held the spring mounts broke so I just put a bolt through it. Went out to the wreckers the other day and found a real nice replacement one from a 94 or 95. Went to change them out and noticed that the cables were different lengths and had different connecters(6 pin v. 8 pin). Luckily they only used 5 colour coded wires so I just spliced the original long cable to the matching colours on the short. Works fine, only issue was that now left and right are up and down and vice versa

left the hwy at 65mph across the grass and ditch to the feeder road just to see how much better the stiffer springs would act than it did last time i did so,,,, ,,,,, smooth as glass. funny how a stiffer ride will take rough terrain better but on the road u feel it more
