I'm getting sliders on the jeep in about a week or two, I'm having one of my friends/local business make them for me. I wish I could fabricate stuff on my own but he's only charging me 260 for sliders, paint, hardware, and install so nots not too bad. Anybody want to buy that step package that was on it?
This may not be completely jeep related, but I figured I'd share it with you because my jeep helped me out. Saturday night I was out duck huntin and I had my mallard and a couple teal decoys out in the water and as daylight was coming to an end I gave my calls a few more blows and what I thought was a flock of flew over and I called them back in and they circled around and as they got overhead I hammered one of em. By the time I got my waders back on it was nice and dark so I pointed my jeep at the pond so I could retrieve my kill and when I walked out and got it I realized it was a snow goose. Snow geese are really rare birds in utah and extremely hard to hunt, but I somehow managed to get a whole flock to me with a duck call and mallard decoys.
It's been a while since I've posted on here. I now have some sliders on the jeep! And are you ready for the best part?... 4inch RC lift and some 32's go on this weekend!! I got a hell of a deal on some BFG KM's on ksl this weekend, they were slightly used Rubi takeoff tires. Guy sold me 5 of em' with 12/32 tread on them for $200! If anyone want to give me some tips on installing the lift it would be appreciated. Even though I've started soaking things in PB blaster and I get to use a shop lift, anything helps!
Not a long arm kit, just the basic 4in RC kit. I don't have long arm kind of money, my mom bought the lift for me and I have to pay her back. But my suspension is in such bad shape as it is anything is better. Considering my uncle is being iffy about helping with the install (he's the one with the shop and the lift I was planning on using) and my dad is going to Colorado this weekend I might need some help. My biggest worry is going to be the coils I think.
Well my lift came in the mail and guess what? I got the upgraded rough country kit for $499!! I'm going to start it tonight. I also forgot to say that I put a glass pack on and I like it. It's nice and deep and can be really obnoxious when you want it to. And now everyone at my school wants one :/
PM me your cell number and address. I might be able to come help with the install after school if you want or need help.

I got the rear done today, and about half the front. My school is pissed at me because my mom texted me and told me if I wanted to leave I could, so I went to the bathroom and never came back. But it's worth it. The jeeps lookin good.
the lift is done! y'all gonna give me hell about runnin 6in on short arms but I did it. everything is good and solid. I took it up to 70 on a pretty rough road and drove it on the highway and I haven't gotten death wobble or anything yet. I do have vibes getting up to speed but at a constant speed it goes away. any advice is welcome. pics coming later.
I took my jeep to Delta this weekend hunting. It did pretty good. The lift is turning out to be pretty good. But then I got a huge hold in one of my new tires. Does BFG offer any kind of road hazard warranty?
Where did you buy the tires?
