I have always said.... "im never gunna need a winch".
Now that my wj is gunna be a mostly off road vehicle, im getting a winch. I have been saved 3 times by a winch, and without one, who knows what mine would look like, maybe agitatedpancakes.... ha.
But I would highly suggest one, especially since you are gunna be on tons so I hope that means no more bunny runs for you. I think after the Rubicon im building a bumper, and maybe see if AP can bend some tube for me.
99 WJ hp44, 3 link, Eaton e locker, 14" foa coilovers in the front. 14 bolt, 4 link, grizzly locker, 12" foa coilovers in the rear. 5.38s and 37s
No, not really. Just been saving my pennies for the most part. Starting on a house hunt (apartment living blows big time), so that will be taking over some or most of my savings. But I did get a tracking number and confirmation that my D60 Detroit Locker WILL be here tomorrow!
Lol finally!! So what's the game plan? Tear down and get this bad boy rolling yet?
Game plan right now is to keep the WJ running and driving while gathering parts and money until I know for sure when its going into the shop. Would hate to tear the axles out of it then realize it ain't going to the shop for a good while.
Another note, I'm taking the Jeep on its first wheeling trip in the South this Saturday. Can't wait to see this new park by me. Will have lots of pictures I hope.
Took the Jeep out for a day of wheeling at a new offroad park today. The park was kind of lame since it hasn't really got on it's feet yet. Give it another year or two and it should be a good place to wheel. Took me about 3 hrs to wheel everything my WJ was capable of wheeling.
And I CANNOT wait to get rid of this damn 242 setup in favor of an Atlas. This is the second 242 that has taken a **** on me. Same problem, too. The front will just disengage whenever the slightest amount of throttle is given. Makes the same noise my first/original 242 did when it wouldn't engage the front output. And it of course quits working when I need 4low to get up a steep incline with loose dirt and rocks. I'm done fooling with them.
Anyway, here are a couple pictures from the trip. Nothing spectacular.
$350 for each I reckon. I'm going to give this guy near me one more chance to get the rear bumper. He was paying me $100 at a time and only has $150 left. But the last time he actually paid me was back in March.
And I don't know the first thing about shipping by frieght...
