I like the improvements they've made with their control arms, still think they should include front uppers in the kit though.

are you talking about page 34 and the hood ornament for me??? Dude you know you are like the son I never had and I am so proud of you. It may be a joke that I call you padawan and you call me master...but I seriously am so proud of what you have become in these few years of knowing you.

Thought for the day:
If GOD gave HIS only son for us...can't we at least give HIM an hour of our time a day.

Damn, how are you working on the Jeep when it's that dirty? If there's one thing that drives me insane, it's having to fix anything after I've been in the mud at all.

John, you seriously need to sell all those junk tires and buy a set of NICE Mud Tires. You'll be amazed at what they can do.
