Yeah, I doubt I go to anything else. They aren't bad.

22nd is a go!!! What's next weekend?

Ill have to add some things to the list like the ball joints. I moved the holes and trimmed my rear lowers and beefed everything up and shot squats nicely now. The rear is about as good as it will get. Looking into some felt tubes and maybe sliders. Need a deal!

Cool! Nwxt weekend is Jeep Jam. A local dealership puts it on and it's just a show with some small courses to run.

I used to have an XJ on 31's that was a 5 speed. The 3.07's weren't bad, but weren't ideal. My 99' is real peppy, and with the auto, it's not that bad. 4.56's or 4.88's would be better, but since I don't DD it, it really isn't worth it.

I would have liked to put more angle to it but I don't think the rear passengers would be to comfy with a tire in their seat...
So it takes up most/all of your cargo area while blocking all view out your rear window?

I love your enthusiasm and your Jeep is awesome, but that doesn't seem all that well thought out.

And how do you keep road crap from being flung inside?

Thanks. Yup, it takes up my cargo room. It's a trail rig, I never put anything in there except maybe a few tools. As for blocking my view, almost every rear bumper mounted tire carrier blocks your view, so what's the difference? I would never mount a tire on the roof cause, well, that's stupid. If you wheel any, it makes a hell of a difference in weight distribution and fawking up your center of gravity. And believe it or not, not much is flung inside. Again, it's a toy, not my DD, so it's not a big issue to me.

MO FUGGIN' UPDATEZZZ!!!

Ok, well, not really.

Went to a local Jeep event, Jeep Jam, and ran their course. Had fun and got some sweet unirail scars.....















AND THEEEEN I cut my front doors off. Went by the way that dcorn said to do it and had decent success. No pics at the moment but I'll be wheeling Crozet this weekend so I'll get some then. And no I still haven't welded the 8.25. Might do that Friday!

So your stock d30/c8.25 29spline? I'm really thinking about going to 35's and gearing my D30 and getting chromos. Any fears of busting shafts or bending the housing or anything?
