Anyone have any gas shocks they wanna give me?
I got 2 off of ebay for the cost of 1 at the parts store. I also think they are from a heavier application because the hatch lifts really fast and is hard to close.

Totaling tanks eh,

Well just for arguments sake, lets say that the civilian tanks weigh 40,00lbs. each, and will travel 40 mph. Lack of NEED for artilery reduces weight increases speed.

Imagine 2 "Soccer Moms" traveling at top speed, in opposite directions on a 2 lane road, thats a total of 80,000 lbs. closeing at 80 mph. Now, say one of them, unbeknownst to the either, is 3 inches to far to the left. While an impact like that would be fun to watch, it would probably be FELT 3 blocks away. Not to mention the MARK, that sort of impact would leave.

....when you figure out how to light the afterburner when climbing a hill on the freeway using the power/comfort switch on the dash, or grabbing the shifter and taking it out of overdrive.

... when you're NEVER totally content with your current setup.

... when your jeep is currently lifted and clears 33x12.50s, but even when it was stock on 225's you still ran over **** all the time.

... when EVERYBODY's ideal setup for their Jeep is nothing short of a setup that would be right at home combing the surface of Mars.

... when you go to a junkyard and find many useful parts... and none of them are from an XJ.

... when you ALWAYS have a cooler in the hatch area.

... when you get almost as much attention from your DD budget-minded Jeep as you do from your Mustang that you have way more money in.

Now i envy you

The only burnout i have managed to get was by accident with a faulty fuel pump and normally talking i'm unable to do a burnout the closest i can get is a tire spin in the sand (just one tire).

BTW: 293xxx kms on the clock, auto tranny

When you see an old Volvo station wagon going down the road and wonder what it would look like with a lift and some nice tires.
