Has anyone ever done that before? Randomly crawl under lifted Jeeps in parking lots? Somebody please tell me I'm not the only one.
haha I wasn't going to say anything, but I've been known to go look at tires, lifts, bumpers, etc. So your not the only one. And I've also heard of people stealing cats. I don't have one so I don't worry about that haha.

Today I had the option of parking a lil closer or parking near jeeps.

You need far more armor than that if you do anything besides parking it, but I can see all that steel turning some heads! Thanx for pix!
beyond those two bumpers the only body armour my jeep really needs is rockers, out here there arent any rocks, mostly sand mud snow and a few trees, maybe some deep water in the spring. those bumpers are more than heavy enough, and climing sand hills and such sometimes descending gets a little scary, hence the stinger. its also very effective for repelling highway projectiles, a.k.a. deer, of which there are alot in saskatchewan.

definantly doing a roll cage this summer though, i have to replace thw entire floor i figure i might as well do it while i got her stripped down. body panels are replaceable, trail damadge gives it attitude so i just protect the parts that matter, engine, gas tank, etc.

lo tho i wheel through the valley of the shadow of death, i will fear no obsticle, for my jeep is with me. thy armour and tires, they comfort me. you lead me to lay down rubber on big rocks, and drive you through deep waters.
you prepare a place for me at the end of tough trails, and you anoint my driveway with oil. surely your awesomeness and the smell of burning motor oil will follow me all of the days of my life, and i will dwell in the house of the jeep forever. amen.

If you wanted to sample how cold that would be, you can ride along with me sometime, since my heater sucks ***.

x2. makes lots of heat after about 3 hours on the highway, as long as its above -20

lo tho i wheel through the valley of the shadow of death, i will fear no obsticle, for my jeep is with me. thy armour and tires, they comfort me. you lead me to lay down rubber on big rocks, and drive you through deep waters.
you prepare a place for me at the end of tough trails, and you anoint my driveway with oil. surely your awesomeness and the smell of burning motor oil will follow me all of the days of my life, and i will dwell in the house of the jeep forever. amen.

Nah, I wouldn't do that. If I were to steal something, I'd take the whole damn rig instead of the cat. But, I couldn't steal from a fellow Jeeper. Just look at my sig.

Thank God. My bosses’ father drove his XJ down from Alaska for a family visit not too long ago and stored it at my work; 3-inch lift, 31's, 4 cylinder, manual, 8.25 rear. It was a nice rig, and not only did I park next to it, I crawled under it and was promptly caught by my boss. Needless to say, I had some explaining to do.

His father on the other hand, understood completely.

Eat healthy, exercise hard, and die anyway
