What does the tree and crescent moon stand for that is on the side of the Jeep near the side mirrors? Looks really nice, if I get a Wrangler for a replacement Jeep, that is what I'd want to do with it.

Thanks for posting all of your specs. Can you buy me a new set of wheels? Hey, you said, "Ask and you shall receive"!!

Do you know what size lift, wheels/tires the blue jeep that was wheeling with you the last trip had? I beleive it was a girl driving in the pics. That is just about the stance i'm going for. Thanks Andy

Hey Dr.

Quick question, trying to get the same spring setup you have front and rear.
Now did your REBB lift come with extended bumpstops and such? And after you put of the new springs did you get longer bumpstops?

The BB I have is kinda crappy got it off eBay (person made them in his garage) it is spacers that go on the bottom of the springs. So I never did anything to the bumpstops. I might just remove the spacers if the springs lift it enough to clear my tires.

Thanks Kevin
Oh and you need to change your gallery pics, you don't have that light bar anymore, I do!!!

Click on the person's profile, then the number in parentheses next to their name. Then click submit feedback.

Marn, I can't believe you've spent more on your Jeep than I have... But! You did sell two hardtops. Lucky...

yeah, thats the main reason i was able to afford alot of the stuff i have.

but that list isnt including repairs i've done and paid for. there's like 600 dollar brake lines 500 water pump thermostat and radiator hoses, 200 power steering, etc.

Finally got my pinion seal replaced:

DS removed, note the diff oil all on the bottom of the diff


thats a big, rusty nut.


had to run to the store to get something that would fit that nut. 14.99. not a bad deal.


nut and pinion yoke removed, took one hell of a breaker bar:


after 20 minutes of tapping with a screw driver and then prying, got the offending seal out:


tapped the new one in:


not ghetto at all....used a big ole pipe wrench to hold the yoke while we torqued down the pinion nut:


we kinda bent the crap outta the old one....oh well!


done!
