I know you went over there to pick your stuff up but he has been taking quite some time on the flares.

Dont mean to clog your thread, but you seem like you know iceland pretty good. On another note, keep up the clean build, i can tell your just getting started :D

I don't imagine it should take much longer. They are worth the wait! I know Iceland has been changing up their manufacturers this year, and their goal is to have stuff in stock at all times. With demand up, hopefully they can accomplish this soon. Shoot me a PM when you get them and are installing them. I can give you pointers with the install if you run into any problems.

Hey, I thought I was original...How did you come up with your username?

If you get those Moabs on there, I might just be tempted to buy the thing from you. :drool:

Thanks, this has been such a fun project...It is hard to admit to myself, but I think I am enjoying this more than my Camaro.

Everyone's got a Camaro. How many people can say they have a Yeti? Now wouldn't it be cool if they made a Transformer out of your Jeep? That would rule!

I don't have a Camaro. :shhh:

Can't wait to the gas tank lift kit. Any idea how much it is going to cost?

I don't either, but since everyone is on this Transformers kick, Camaros are a lot more popular. I see them all over the place anymore. I like them, but still... I'd fall over flat if I saw a Dub like this driving around.

Lookin good Will! Can't wait to see it in person one of these days! :thumbsup:

Yeah, I need to quit being so lame (busy schedule) and actually show up to a UJC event.

In reference to the transformers stuff...my Camaro is actually a yellow IROC with black racing stripes. It was Bumble Bee before Bumble Bee existed. We used to call it the Wasp, but we more often refer to it as the yellow bobsled. It sucks in Utah winters.

What year is it? Well, the Jeep is what you have for winters, eh? I'd love to see that thing in the snow!

It kinda made sense to me.. both the yeti and the jeep are sure-footed creatures at home in the woods. :laugh: Yours definitely is from nepal, mine is an appalachian yeti.

I did some light wheeling this morning, sway bars connected. I wanted to check to see how much more I need to trim off of the rear bumper. I think just a touch more, and I will be good. The 35's tuck up in really nice now with the fender flares.

Best looking WJ I've seen in a long time. Loving that "we don't need no stinkin' boat ramps" photo too. Classic.

Looks pretty mean with those flares and bumper on there. With a white ZJ it looks really nice..

What RPM are you at with 35's on the freeway? I go 65-70 and my rpms are pretty low, my jeep is always downshifting on hills. I have 33's and 3.73 and i am contemplating 4.56 with 35's.
