Yeah.

With 35s and 3.73s, I could barely get to 65 on the flats and that was around 1700 rpm.

High and tight.

Basically Greg's front for sure. Just full width instead of mini from the dove nose. Ha.
And for rear, I'm not really sure. I have never really found a bumper I like for the back.

Hahah. From what I remember, the rear half of his jeep is heavily modified, so a mass production of that bumper would require a lot of trimming the frame rails.

I'm gunna start with a front bumper first.

Getting moved up at work so I'll be making 30% more than I'm making right now. So if all goes as planned, I'll be picking up a new dd

Ordered some stuff for the jeep today..

Gotta love California exempt vehicles in California. I only have 2 o2 sensors. Which have been throwing codes off and on for the past year. Finally decided to order some new OE denso ones.

A new 16.5" rim for my spare. I may throw a weld on bead lock kit to it just to make it match the others. I've got some funny ideas for the ring. I may or may not do it.

A steering box seal kit.

And 2 6AN to 1/4"NPT adapters to tap my box for hydro assist. And for right now I got 2 6AN caps til I can get the ram.

I'm hoping to have a ram and cooler before my Rubicon trip in 3 weeks, but it doesn't look like it will happen.

I do too. Ha. I've had it for almost a month and haven't done much flexing. I really need a shake down run within the week to see of anything needs to be adjusted.

Oh, also got a 5/8" u coolant hose to bypass that leaking piece of crap heater core. Hopefully it helps with the issue of running warm.

I guess in Cali having a heater is kinda like having AC at the North Pole
