They used a different tool to install but you only need a hammer.

Alright. Overdue for an update. The new Currie JJ full suspension system has been absolutely amazing on and off road.

So now to what's new. Finally got a Warn M8000 winch on my front bumper. Got it for Christmas and I love it. It's great to have peace of mind knowing that I can take care of myself and others with me. Will put up pics later.

Also just ordered LED bulbs to replace all my interior lights, Dash, Overhead, and floor lights. Ordered a license plate relocation bracket to mount it in my spare tire. Ordered the light kit for the relocated plate so I have a license plate light and third brake light. Ordered new Led tail lights so they don't stick out as far off the tub and so they are a lot brighter. Tail lights from off road only, LiteDOT™ LED taillights. Ordered it all through Northridge 4x4. Can't wait to get it all and install. Should clean up the rear end a lot.

Just wanted to put a feeler out. Been thinking alot about my life, my choices and where I choose to live and what I choose to do for a living.

The Washington DC area, and the tri state are around it where I work/live/play is very stressful, expensive to live, and the people aren't very nice.

I look at the west coast and having traveled there when I was younger I absolutely loved it. We went to Moab and happened to be there during the jeep jamboree. We rented a built up JK rubicon and drove a lot of Moab trails.

I would love to live on the west coast somewhere. California, Nevada, Utah. Somewhere within a reasonable driving distance of Moab or Johnson valley. But what do you all do for a living? I know Moab is a small town and there isn't a lot of job opportunities there. But living in another state or city is a very good possibility.

Currently I am a Professional Firefighter/ EMT. I have great mechanical knowledge and have always done all of my own garage work and vehicle work. I took classes about CAD (Computer Assisted Drafting) and was absolutely great at it and I loved it.

Just wanted to see what you all living on the west coast thought. What you all do for a living and how you like living there and wheeling there. And also what cities you all live in. Please help me out on this. Could be making a big change in my life.

Go West young man , its a well known quote I wish that I had listened to long ago . Take a look at Durango CO , and Salt Lake City . Both seem to have a thriving work environment , and are close to lots of wheeling areas . They both also offer easy access to many other winter activities .

I am quite seriously considering it. I just need to find a good career, good town, and close proximity to wheeling Moab or Johnson valley. I might be joining the west coast wheeling society.

I would love to get in with a four wheeling company such as Savvy. Their products are top notch. Customer service is amazing. Located in Tustin, CA and wheel Johnson Valley all the time. Also Currie is located not far in Corona, CA and also wheels JV.

I want to enjoy my life to the fullest. Not look back 20 years from now and think what if. And working for a four wheel company and wheeling the best places to wheel in the US would be a blast and dream come true. And right now that's still a possibility. Nothing is holding me down. I can do whatever I want right now.

I would love to use my knowledge with CAD and be apart of the amazing west coast four wheeling community.

I would love to get the advice of anyone living out there now. California, Utah, Colorado, Nevada. Definitely thinking Southern Cali though.

I live in So.Cal, the 4 wheeling is fantastic and has a lot of variety. Love that part about here. The part that sucks is that way too many (stupid) people live here, Traffic all the time. Then you got the gun laws, taxes blah blah blah.

But as far as wheelin goes, it's pretty tough to beat. For me the closest wheeling is 20 mins, Less than 2 hours to JV and a lot of other good stuff. We do have a lot of great companies out here too.

Awesome. That's exactly what I wanted to hear. The gun laws and taxes are horrible here to so that won't be a change. And traffic is traffic. California is beautiful and I'd love to call it home. What do you do for a living if you don't mind me asking

Currently looking into attending Wyotech for Automotive Technician and specializing in Motorsports Chassis Fabrication. Goes in depth on fabricating roll cages, armor, tube chassis, and suspension systems. Most likely will attend the Wyoming campus so I can easily relocate to So. Cali after graduating. After graduating and relocating I will try to get my foot in the door with the west coast 4wd community. I'd like to finish getting my CAD certificate then so I can also be certified to design on the computer. I know I already can. Just want that on my résumé as well. I'd love to go to work with these amazing west coast 4wd companies. Savvy, Currie, 4 wheel parts. But my #1 pick would be Savvy.

I'm currently a college student.

Might be tough being hired by Savvy as Blaine does all of their design. Savvy has no employees and is pretty small. Its just a small shipping facility in the back of a warehouse, theres not even a Savvy sign The guy that puts together all the CA's, ships stuff and what not works for the electrical company the warehouse is at

Working for Currie or similar would be awesome, Even better would be to start your own fab shop.

Yeah any California 4 wheel drive company would be a dream job. Or start my own. I have CAD experience and will be getting a certificate. I can weld and plasma cut. And planning on attending Wyotech for Automotive and Motorsports Chassis Fabrication. Chassis fab is mainly tube work. Cages, chassis, fabricating, and suspension systems. Goes hand in hand with 4wd vehicles.
