To each their own. I dont see the point in it personally but again, thats my opinion. My ZJ is just as "real" as your YJ

Why are jeepers so caught up on what other jeep owners do to their own vehicles? Ive been around car/truck communities for quite a while and I have never seen more whining than what jeep owners do. It just seems like you guys put up these big high walls and make these big huge lists that you must meet before new guys can get in. What happened to kindly helping novices along and pointing them in the right direction. When someone makes a thread about something that is less than ideal, instead of bashing it or giving a crappy short answer, why not tell them why and the alternatives. There will always be thick skulls that don't listen but don't take it to heart, let them learn on their own. Think back to how you learned, did you automatically go out and spend 5 grand on the suspension and axles or did you start with a budget boost and work your way up(most likely making mistakes on the way).

Because everyone has an opinion, and this is a forum. Everyone is gonna have input, positive or negative. Deal with it. Not everyone is gonna give you the positive answer you want. Regardless of if you think its said in a "whining" or, "mean" way, people here generally genuinely try to help others. Buck up champ

I don't find jeep enthusiast all that much worse than enthusiast for any other hobby and better in some areas. Main area I notice the better side is on the cost aspect. Just try going over to a Ford truck board and ask about budget mods. You'll very well may get shouted down on all sorts of fronts. Very much an attitude that if you don't have the $$ for the best than it ain't worth doing at all. Can be the same with many of the gun and hunting boards I get on. These jeep enthusiasts are definitely more into what works.

All I can speak of is for myself and my experiences. Everything I posted is due to needing something not off some list I read. Sometimes I had it and used it, far to often though I didn't have it and wished I had. I imagine with much of the experience floating around this site that many of the other opinions fall into the same line of things.

But as Riot kinda said, all message boards are opinion based so you have to take the good with the bad.

Try going over here. http://www.pirate4x4.com/welcome1.php They are much less judgmental and a lot friendlier at times with questions. Much more technical and helpful usually. You get the occasion negative Ned but 95% of the people on this board are positive thinkers that don't waste time with negative responses.

We call the BGT s around here. The only 2 logical reason for people around here are......
1. Compensating for insecurity
2. Driving on the beach down south, although they are normally pretty obvious because they go as wide a tire as they can get. I used to have some 31x13.50 just for going down there

Does the Jeep Bible explain in depth on high lifts or does it touch very briefly on this topic ?

What books do you recommend ?

I see more stock rigs muddy than all the lifted newer trucks.
IMO if you have the money you can do whatever you want to your jeep. I would rather see a lifted mall crawler then a slammed jeep on low pros. Just me though....
