Nah I looked through the thread... and that is exactly where I saw it lol. I go to Firehouse a lot with my boss for lunch lol. Our office in the Clemson Centre (with Moe's and Winkopp's place in it).

I don't think I've seen that silver ZJ around yet... I do keep seeing a lifted green ZJ that looks like he's got the driver's side headlight removed?

Jeep will start to fall further and further down the priorities list. Happens in college.

Yeah I can see how. I havent even started classes and Ive been busy as hell. Just finishing up my summer reading essay, its due tommorow .

I dont need to much to get the 8.8 in, just time. I really wanted to get a SYE in so I dont have a problem setting the pinion angle correctly but not sure if thatll happen. Other then that I basically have everything for it.

Just got back from a fun weekend of wheeling. The Jeep did great, no breaks on the trail.







BUT 5 minutes after I drop my rider off I break pretty good. It was my fault, was turning left at a green light and didnt even see a white minivan coming. Dont know how the **** I didnt see it, ive never had anything like this happen. Havent even gotten a speeding ticket. They gave me a 4 point failure to yield. Im going to go to court still and see what happens. I dont know the deal, I think its totaled because the unibody is destroyed. Im going to strip it of all my removable accesorys tommorow. You can tell decently from the pictures, but when you get up and look in the engine bay and in the fenders you can really tell how tweaked it is.

Man that is so sad, glad you weren't hurt in the accident. Dang I was looking foward to the axle swap too. I almost did this same exact thing a few weeks ago. I was turning left on a green and there were these two wranglers coming towards me and no one behind them, naturally I waved to both of them then go to make my left turn. Out of no where this minivan is coming right at me and I'm in the middle of the intersection, I floor it and they slam on their brakes and we both get away safely.

What is the plan from here on out? New ZJ and continue the build on it?

If it is totaled I wont be buying a new ZJ. With my experience working with a unibody ill be moving to something with a frame. That all I can say now, seeing how I havent even spoken to the insurance company. Also if anyone has some experience with this that can lend some insight that would be helpful.
