they were behind a company called P.A. Landers in Hanover, but no one is allowed out there anymore. there were too many people littering and high school kids were going out on the trails and doing drugs so mr. landers said no more. there are some places down in plymouth and in kingston to do some better wheeling and out in western mass there are a good amount of places to go

yeah sure, i work at a dodge dealership so im pretty lucky with all the tools and lifts available when i want/need to work on the heep, its just finding the right timing to do the things that need to get done, i have the rear main waiting to go on, and i have a ton of dana pinion seals, i just gotta figure out which ones are for which axles

I just replaced the radiator this week, removed the rest of the unneeded a/c equipment taking up space. condenser is finally gone and the lines and everything. bought an exhaust cutout and finally got around to replacing the two front doors and i replaced the pins and bushing in the hinges before putting them on. much better now, and much quieter driving down the road without the doors being all rusted out. Just ordered 4 kenwood speakers from crutchfield too so things are going pretty good for the zj lately

bought from Kolak this morning/late last night a set of Bilstein's for a 4" lifted zj, so new coils and track bars and coils are getting ordered next.

Jeep should be riding pretty nice after you get those in there...I can't remember, but did you ever get your modded kegger installed?

yeah i finished it up after i fixed that stupid knife edging i did to it. it ended up being further trimmed than i wanted to go. when i put it in i put in a 180* thermostat and i just didnt like it that much to be honest. it went higher into the rpm band quicker but for regular driving it didnt have enough low end and i just ended up using more gas trying to get up and goin from stop, so i put the original one back in

Cool, thanks for letting me know...I've been busy working on other things so I haven't done much to the one I picked up.
Good to hear your results.

you might get better results out of yours seeing as i trimmed way too much out. i only paid $15 for the intake and when i sold it i got $60 so i made out pretty good
