Yep that's about right but I will have a winch on the cj. So go down the obstacle and back up it and then winch the Jk. Haha.

No idea. I will find out freshman year in college when I can mod it then it will officially be mine and I can wheel it.

I think I will send my frame and axles and other misc parts out to get blasted tomorrow if they aren't super busy this week. Can't wait to see what it looks like bare metal.

once my frame is blasted and galvanized everything will start to go together much smoother and faster.

I bet you would. There is an abandoned house about a mile from mine. Move there and you can use my building.

And I will only be living here for about 2 more years. So then you'd have to be friends with my parents to get to use it.
