I think I'd go with 5.13's. I don't think you'll notice enough difference between the 4.56 and the 4.88 to make it worth the money. either stay 4.56 or go 5.13 that's just my $0.02

Ya that's kinda what I was thinking.. I was only thinking 4.88 cause that's as low as I'd go in a d30.. But i forgot this is with an axle swap.. Duh lol

How's the new wrangler?!

Great news! The guys over at ORO OffRoadOnly are awesome! I have their litedot tail lights, 3rd brake light and license plate light. In June, 3 of my LEDs on my right tail light went out.. Since then both tail lights have had lots of led's fade and turn off then come back on. Sometimes up to half of them..

So I sent ORO an email late last night. They called me first thing this morning and offered to send me a new set. I just have to cover shipping heck yes! Their customer service rocks!

They also offered to let me upgrade to the new tail lights for half price but I need to save up for some other things right now. I'll get new ones down the road if these have issues. Apparently the new design is much more reliable than the ones I have.

But anyway, IM STOKED!!!

Ha thanks Guys, Tom I'll see u today wheeling right?!


So last night I did and oil change / Air Filter Recharge.

I also replaced my spark plugs. I gap'd the new plugs .035 and then after installing them I checked the old plugs. They were all around .060.. Twice the gap! That might explain loss of power and misfires ha ha are there any other side effects for having to large of a gap? I have heard hot spots because the spark connects with the cylinder wall and less fuel economy. Well I'm hoping to have a little more grunt up some of the big mountain hills around here.. At least til I regear again..

That LJ looks so much better than when it was listed for sale. I spent many nights thinking about selling my TJ for that exact Jeep. I love what you have done to it! Have you spent much time in the snow with that rear locker?

Ha ha Thanks! Its been a lot of hard work and time getting it all up and running and clean... Still have a lot to do..

As far as the locker, I ran this jeep a few times in the snow and it was fine. The Wj I just sold to buy this jeep had an Aussie in the rear and I had it for a whole winter and no problems.. its not hard to drive at all..

Nice transformation my friend! You really brought it back from a slippery slope of what seemed like half-assed mods.

Look forward to seeing more of your work being done to it.
