4 Votes! Nice truck. Makes me miss my xj, even though it was a dump.

Thanks!

Got it aligned today because my tires were wearing bad. Need to order up some longer bump stops and get this thing ready for Big Bear on the 20th

Took it to big bear last weekend and had a great time. Broke my rear driveshaft flange and ujoint, along with body damage on the 2 rear wheel wells, passenger side corner, and ripped off the rear bumperettes.

New wheels on today. No more rubbing issues. Those 32s look small

Ok stupid question i know but just wanted to add something other than my typical "nice jeep man" post. But nice jeep by the way man, any complaints on the current set up or any fun plans coming down the pipe line?

I'm dreaming a little, but looking at 8.8 with 4.10s so I can run these tires a little better. IRO long arm. Or new paint. My paint has gotten much worse over the last couple months. I've been working on my TJ trying to get it ready for its next trip out

I've been debating on painting them black. But I like how light they are

Today was another u-joint day. Just goes to show that cheap o'reillys u-joints don't hold up. Just replaced them with napa super strength joints (lifetime warranty). Even though i've replaced them a couple times, it's still a pain
