This....

Don't get me wrong, it looks real nice, but you'll never even know you did the clay bar or paid some guy to come and buff it once it's gotten dirty.

It's not going to go very far off road with stock gears and 35's anyway so you might be ok.

That's just wrong. Did they ever catch her?

Oh really? If you think gears makes that much of a difference on 35s I dare you to follow me...

It's not my DD, never calculated it. I just know it isn't great. Then again, if you run 35s your MPG's will never be awesome again.

Good glad to hear, and glad to see your ok and got another one and built it to your liking. I remember when you posted about the accident and when you were starting to look for a new one. You've posted my jeep on LTUSA before too

No hate from me. If you got the dough, spend it. I wish someone would work on my ***** for me every now and then....

And btw, nice XJ. Too tall for my taste and wheeling, but I'm glad to see you went with the TRUE 4 link BDS kit and not some bull$hit radius arm. I dig it.

Yes, really. It's not about capability. Sure, I bet you can go places but what I was referring to was your tranny. Hey, if you like changing your trans fluid as often as you change your oil, have at it.

According to your specs, you run a 33x12.50? Why aren't you geared? My tires are only an inch bigger in diameter overall. I've never had to change my trans fluid yet, and it still shifts like it did the day I got it. I've drove a few geared Jeeps and honestly, it doesn't make enough sense for me to gear it not being a DD. I may gear it sometime, but it feels fine like it is. Quit being a newb and listening to everything you hear on the interwebz and JF.
