Little off topic but I remember telling you about totaling my Jeep. Today I was checking out a few used car dealerships and I found the reincarnation of my last Jeep the one I totaled but better! It's the same color but with a snowboard roofrack leather seats fogs lights and a trailer hitch. Right in my price range. There was no one there but I'm headed back tomorrow to find out the details. I'm pretty excited it's really weird though because it has everything I wanted to get for my last Jeep.

Definitely I want to make a build thread for this one, it said 4998 for a price which i still have enough but I won't have any extra for a lift so maybe me and my dad can talk him down a bit, if I could get it for 4,000 then I'd have just enough for iro lift and 31s but as usually I'm getting way ahead of myself. haha

It sounds to good to be true! Is it a v8? Any details you have now?

That'd be a good deal at 4000! NADA says that mine is worth 11k or something like that.

I WISH my parents would calm down and let em get a 3 IRO!

I shoulda wrote down the vin, well I know its a 01 with a 4.0 loaded the paint looks perfect, the only exterior problem i see with it is a small crack in the bumper. 11k seems a little pricey! Is yours an overland or anything?

My families shore home is right up the road from there (viking that is) awesome when you see the brand new ones come out the factory door and dropped in the water.

Mine don't really want me spending money on my Jeep but I told them a lift would be safer for in the winter, that way I can run a bigger tire size and more tire will be contacting the ground so I'll get better traction in the snow. They know I'm going to be snowboarding a lot so I need to be able to handle in the snow My problem is money

WOW that must be a sight to see them launch those beasts! I have posted pictures on here before of the Viking the we had! I loved that boat to death! They make some excellent products! I would love to work for them one day on their engineering team! You should snap a pic for me one day if you can!

The parents and the lift... story of my Jeep life right now haha!

Actually bigger tires are what you want in the sand to ride on top of the sand and not sink down... you want a skinnier tire in the snow so you sink down to the ground and get traction on the road. Or at least that is what I was told. But what ever way you can bend it to get a lift on there! GO FOR IT! hahahaha

@JulieTheJeep: big tires gives you no benefits on snow, it just make it worse.

I use 245/70/16 and Will never Go Any bigger on My winter tires....

You can Go bigger/taller but i wouldnt recomend Wider Than 245. Best thing on snow is a narrow tall tire.

Hight can be benefitial though, due to packing up snow under floorboard and making you loose trackition because Jeep Get lifted up and makes tires loose traction. But then you have to offroad in deep snow .5-1 meter.

Ask me How i know, rofl!

Cant Wait for snow to come here in Norway, drifting My Jeep up Mountain and ride My snowboard.

Here some pics from last year, 6 meter snow!

Yes this place is on off the most snowfull places in Norway, Rĝldal. Last year they got ONLY 6 meters of snow and when it snows heavily, they Get easily 2 meters a week.

A couple of years ago they Had 14 meters snow up There. At the top you can Go both right and left, both sides you can find lots of places outside slope Where nobody went before you, pure pudder!

I know, can Wait to Get back up There when snow start falling. Last year they asked us why We came? And said: but its ONLY 6 meters now, That's not much.

For me its just great finding places outside the slope to freeride in pudder.
