Took mine to the Muddy Buddys Jeep cruise in Dayton Ohio. Had a great time, met and talked to a lot of new Jeepers. Also got a lot of good feedback concerning my Jeep. I had to leave about 3:00 pm, but there were about 50 Jeeps there at that time. Thanks to everyone there, it was a good time.
Just a slightly modded XJ with a little lift, some armor, four mud tires and a few decals, so far.
driving back home I caught up to a lifted 00-01 on the highway. I passed the dude and he gave me a thumbs up, and then he passed me and I waved to him. He liked my jeep. He was on 31s on a 3" or so lift and ARB front bumper, not sure if he was headed to dayton or not, but i was just going home.
finally got the rear all cleaned out and got stuff organized. about 3 bags of trash was back there haha. now just need to get the mounts on my tire carrier for the HiLift and gas can ( don't worry it's empty )
1991 XJ. 8" lift, 35" BFG KM2's. the new project
1990 XJ. 6.5 lift, 33" BFG ATKO's. SOLD : (
Put a new fan belt on and changed the oil and filter...10W-30 High Mileage and a fram tough guard filter
drove it a little after.....HOLY COW what an oil change does to the PERFORMANCE! I bought it 3 months ago and finally got around to the oil change because I had no clue how long it had been b4. Now it runs so smooth and nice throttle response compared to b4, I am guessing I will gain a mpg or 2 also.
