I don't know what each has, but I know my Laredo was running hydros when I bought it and nitros when I lifted it. I haven't had the Orvis long enough to poke around too much.

I will say even when the Laredo was stock and had new tires, it didn't handle as well as this Orvis does. That's indisputable.

All is good with me, jeep is totaled. Only cut my ankle when I kicked the passenger window out. She did good. Airbags didn't deploy, even with a front end impact at first. She's a trooper, she'll be getting parted out if anyone needs parts....

Damn dude, at least you're alright. Sucks about your Jeep though. Is it too soon to start compiling my list of spares I want from it?

(Seriously though, I lost my air hat nut this morning, I gotta find a new one)
