People usually dont want to help with out of the box stuff because a.) It's out of the box and not what they would do, or b.) It's a defense mechanism because they dont know how to help and feel like less of a man because they dont know everything. I usually catch the same stuff. My xj is only 2wd and Ive gotten stuck every time I took it off road. There isnt much in S Florida to entice me off road anyway, so why build for it? People get irked when they find out I have a lowered Jeep, cause it's not normal.
4.6 stroker, 2wd, 5spd, larger sway bars front and rear, 3.55s, KJ 16's.
Projected date of completion - lol
