I had to wipe dust off the shift lever. I may have to make it a dd again to wear out these 35's...

Ready for Rocks & Valleys tomorrow. I hope the temps reach double digits by noon or I'll feel bad for the guys in Wranglers...

Nothing like wheeling in the snow in the comfort of heated seats.

My Laredo doesn't have heated seats, just leather.

After seeing the locals play on a couple man made obstacles that were more difficult than almost anything naturally occurring on a trail, I am even more convinced about an axle swap. It will be easier here in MI with no safety inspections, now to find the right donor vehicle.

I look forward to seeing this. New axles is something I have always wanted to do, it would make me more daring on the obstacles. Preserving a D30 when wheeling with 35's is a fun challenge. What type of axles are you considering?

Thanks James! I can't wait for more seat time in the WJ. Moving has temporarily changed a few priorities.
I did take it out today and get stuck in the snow behind my house. About an hour of shoveling and I was on my way. Name:  image-2467022830.jpg
