i got the 4.5 but they are so good they ran rough for like 3 or 4 months before they really settled but i'm on short arms too so i knew i wouldn't be asking for much of a smooth ride, i support iro though nothing but great products

Im on peachtree road by peidmont hospital. Actually havn't wheeled anythin more than drivin around the mountains yet. Moved up here last year from south carolina and got the jeep a few months ago. As soon as I get a front driveshaft, I'll be draggin the parents to some trails. (The jeeps our only car right now)

A annual "JF Georgia Trail Ride" would be a cool thing to put together too. But if you have any trails that you know of, put em up on this website if you have some time. http://www.schwarttzy.com/ I think you just click the email link and tell them the trail info. Its a cool site but not enough GA trails.

fixed my cb mount


i dont have any in the process pics, i didn't have a camera

i also did a tune up, new plugs, wires, cap, rotor, air filter, seafoamed her, oil/ filter change and tuned my cb antenna so it picks up sooo good and i put a pa in, it was a productive day

my heep is still stallin so bad though i pulled some codes and i got throttle position sensor fault and low voltage in fuel sending unit, i was attempting to fix those today but just got mad and stopped i'm about to just take her to a shop unless you guys really think i can fix what ever is going on, it has been messed up for so long i just want it fixed at this point.

Looks a lot better man. Thats a good spot but I like having my VIC.haha. But I got mine mounted the other day and I like it. Is tuning the antenna hard though? I never did it to mine. What exactly do you do?

i like my vic too i'm putting it in on the other side later when i got some more time, no the tuning is so easy it is so worth it. you need an swr meter though but it makes the biggest difference. all you do is plug the swr meter into your cb where the antenna jack is then you plug your antenna into the swr meter. there is a switch on the meter that says fwd and ref, you put it to fwd and hold in the mic button, and then on the meter there is another knob for calibrating, so while holding the button you move the knob so the meter needle most to the set positon, you'll see it on the meter. you get it to set and then switch it to ref and write down the reading you get, and then you let the mic button go. you do this on channel 1, 19, and 40 some write the final readings down. most likely your swrs will but higher on your higher channels so you either adjust the nut of your antenna if you have to nut kind or like mine there is no nut, you have to take coils off the top. there is a much better description on the firestick web site but thats basically all you do.

do it though it make your cb 1000 times better and if you dont do it, it can damage your cb
