Finally got back to the Jeep today. Got the door switches worked out.. was a bad ground. Still need to get an exhaust and windshield. Might be getting a set of 33x10.5s from a friend. So while I had time on my hands today I swapped two 33x12.5s off my dad's Jeep just to see what it would look like.. Looks pretty badass in my opinion. I like it lot. All it really needs is a coil spacer up front.





Flexin a bit:


Leveled out:


That is maxed out front up travel and no rubbing:


And back in the garage:

Got a bumper for the Manche the other day.. Picked it up from a buddy that had it laying behind his shed. Painted it and threw it on.

Installed some coil spacers on the MJ this afternoon. Got it all leveled out and looking good. Should be taking it to the muffler shop sometime this week to get an exhaust installed.

Took the MJ on its first journey on the big streets today. Took it to my friend's place up the road a bit so we can take it to a muffler shop in the morning. Only one major problem I found, it has a major case of the death wobble. I believe its due to a wore out steering box but only time will tell.

Dropped it off at the muffler shop this morning. Not real sure what is going on it.. I just told the guy to put something on that wasn't too loud but still noticeable. Should be picking it up in the morning.

Got the exhaust done today. Told the guy I wanted something fairly inexpensive somewhat, quite but still having a tone to it.. He chose a turbo tube muffler with a catalytic converter. I think it turned out great. Its not as loud as my XJ but still you know its there which is what I was going for.
