Haha thanks, I dropped the Jeep off at the shop this morning and I'll be picking it back up after I'm done with class this afternoon. 33s are going on!

Thanks guys I always appreciate the comments.

Just picked the Jeep up, she's sittin' on 33s!











Parked kinda crooked on a hill but you get the idea. Flat fenders go on tomorrow, but now I'm about to go for a cruise

No real noticeable loss of power, I haven't had it up to highway speed yet though. I'm sure my mpg's are suffering a little more but I didn't buy my Jeep for fuel economy anyway.

I noticed a loss of power when I had 33s on my YJ, it was a manual as well. My XJ is an auto and the torque converter is working overtime to make it drive as normal as possible.

Well progress on the XJ has been pushed back due to lack of time, but I got a few pictures for you guys.

Brown Santa brought me some stuff.







Flares laid out.



Came home to this the next day. Thanks mail man.

Made a little progress tonight with the CB install.

Bracket was a little big.



I can fix that.





Fits nicely.



Making a bracket to hold up my CB, I'm going to put it between the sun visors.



Cut out.



Painted.



More progress tomorrow after work, right now I'm too tired to keep going.

Finished the CB bracket.



Test fit.





PA installed.



Wired up and running.



How it will be while I'm driving.



Still isn't fully functional yet, I bought the wrong connector for my coax cable so I can't connect it to the antenna just yet, but at least I can yell at people through the PA. I also ordered a Firestik quick disconnect for the antenna so that I'll be able to get in the garage without having to unscrew the antenna every time.

I briefly considered buying the Rough Country disconnects, but remembered that I needed to get gas, so I spent all my money on that instead



I have to run to town for awhile but when I get back I'm going to start on the rear flares.
