Hi guys, I figured it was time to step out of the shadows and get my post on.
My name is Brian, I live near Portland, OR, and I recently picked up a WJ.
Very clean '04 with only about 62k on it. 4.0, 242, bone stock. I believe it was an old folks RV tow-behind.
I'm proud to say I figured out the search button
and I got in touch with Kolak the magnificent. 1200 some odd dollars later, and I'm almost ready to install the OME HD kit, JKS discos, Bilsteins, new isolators, and his exhaust kit. Also ordered up a set of XD Spy wheels and 255/70r17 Hankook Dynapro ATM's. This is my daily (and only) driver, so I decided to keep it mild for the time being.
I'm not new to Jeeps or wheeling luckily. I had an '88 Comanche a while ago. Well preserved stock 2wd that I proceeded to butcher and toy with. Ended up with a roughly 8" long arm lift, "lost" the bed, made my own bumpers, broke the rear end, got nasty stuck a few times, beat it to death, then parted it out because I moved and there was no way it would make it without some pain.
I grew up in the mountains near Yosemite which offered some excellent wheeling opportunities, and I hope to explore Oregon with my new rig.
Nice to meet you all!
