NO! I need to bump stop, the tires keep getting stuffing in the wheel wells and they stop me dead in my tracks. I actually have torn chunks out of one of the tires.

did a diff fluid change and decided to paint the diff covers, I will call it the cow.





I also got my D35 repair kit ready:





I also managed to crush one my blocks last night when I was showing up some rednecks and their trucks.

I knew I forgot something in my build thread I actually have Teraflex 1.5" shackles installed as well. I still need to figure out what to do with the blocks because otherwise I would have to get new leaf springs since mine are only 3.5" leaf packs.

Haha, thanks! I had some appliance enamel laying around so I tried it as well as some clear coat. I was gonna go with traffic cone orange but I already had white paint, yes I am cheap

you can add leaves to your 3.5in pack. mix and match. find a long AAL somewhere and that should probably work. bastard pack maybe? idk. up to you

So today I thought I would try and find what was causing my vibes that started after this weekend. This is what I found...

That's not good Maybe that is why the pinon angle is off ...


This is why blocks are bad mmkay. In the process I broke several ubolts and had trouble finding them in town. Now I am looking online for some beefier ubolts.

Today a few of us from our Jeep club went to Osceola national forest, here are some pictures.

A few min into the trip and one of the Jeeps was having trouble, so I took the time to take a few pictures.









Trail Repair:







Someone got stuck...





While waiting for him to get pulled out, look at how clear the water is!



Cherokee to the rescue!





Later on we had to stop again because a certain black Jeep got water in it's distributor so it was picture time again.













Parking lot wheeling!

So I went to grease the zerks on my teraflex shackles and as soon as I went to pull the grease gun off the zerk snapped in half on both shackles!

I have to tell you. I love your Jeep. Very similar what I would like to do to mine. I like that you kept the stock wheels and didnt go with the black wheels and huge tires that stick out so far. I got Icons too! Heck we both have limiteds! Just got my 2'' lift on Yesterday. Someday I will be where you are.

Keep it up!
