Ive got a few other things needing addressed first, but I may consider going ahead and ordering just because I like when Brown Santa brings me stuff haha.
I wanna say it was like 80 something shipped, not sure about the discounts.

Ok, thats about what I was thinking, its 67 on the site minus shipping. Im going to PullAPart in the next week or two and just grab up whatever I find. If they have a ZJ rod I may just grab that so I can use the bigger TRE's, otherwise Ill do IRO's tie rod. I need to pick up a front driveshaft too for future SYE install. Believe Im going to do the IRO HnT.

Im just trying to gather parts here and there at this point. The weather is still pretty terrible, so I dont plan to install anything too soon. That will give me some time to get my **** together without breaking the bank all at once. We have a Corolla for backup DD duty, so when my parts stash grows full and the weather cooperates Ill pull the XJ of DD status and throw it all together. Too bad its not later in the build, as I know where I can get a set of new redletter General Grabbers for 600 bucks right now in 35" flavor. Pity.

Yeap, I noticed you were rockin em too! And im with ya, just something about them!

My other 3 are getting seasoned but still have 60% tread probably, i forgot how much tread a new one had on it til today! Ive had excellent luck out of them, and they wear very well. I plan to buy a new one every so often til I have a whole new set again and plenty of spares if I decide to stay on 31's.

Thats kind of the fork in the road when it comes to my build plans lol. Once the primary to do list is done, it will either go 35's and chopped up route, or hang onto 31s and go for an expo themed rig. As much as I dig road trips and camping, it may very well be the latter. That is what a Jeep build is after all, tailoring your rig to meet your demands. Time will tell though.

Thats kinda what Im thinking. When the time comes, I can throw my 31s on CL and get my money back and then some. No stranger to 4.5" and 33's (see "Resistance" build in sig), but 31s are kind of the hand I was dealt for now so we will see how it goes. I still comb CL everyday for deals on tires and all that tho.

Either way, I dig the expo look and usefulness. Im just going to kind of let it all pan out and see what happens, Ill be just as shocked as you all.

Thank you! Glad to see someone else sees it that way. Id like a trail only rig one day, but Im not really in this hobby to be an all out crawler. Just want Jeep that performs well enough to take out and have fun with and look good too. Im certainly not against trail damage, Im just not like some of my friends who purposely seek out denting **** for no real reason.

Ultimately, Im beyond just a Jeeper, i like to fish, hunt, and be in the outdoors period. The Jeep thing started as a means to "get out there" and just happened to turn into a fullblown hobby haha.

Exactally, you can wheel a rig hard while being careful. Thats what makes it more exciting.
