Your rig has plenty done to it. Like said, a BB and 31s can get though most stuff. Atleast it did last year when I was there (Not GSW though). Sliders are definitely a lift saver which you have. Same offer goes to you as I told Bama earlier pending I have a job.

Looks like I better get to lifting my dub. No hitch on mine.

Sounds like a good excuse for a lift though!

I'll be there, the ZJ should be ready enough by then. I'll be gettin' a 2nd job and stayin' single so I can get the jeep done asap.

EDIT:May be buying another ZJ that's in better condition and swapping in the 5.9L then start on my build. Was never fond of the current ZJs color lol.

im planning on being there but i need bump stops here soon and the rig will be ready to go!
im a little worried about the drive too tho i dont know how my jeep will perform now after all the stuff ive done to it it shaked on the freeway when i hit about 70 so i will have to take its pretty slow and nobody in town can balance a beadlock wheel correctly in town so my jeep kinda bounces!!!

MOPAR or NO CAR

Ya got 10 months to trouble shoot the "shakes". Hopefully just tightening some trackbar bolts will solve it. See you in Moab.
