Well we added another jeep to the fleet. This one we bought built already with some good parts and some not. Its a 99 with only 80k miles and for a steal so it was an opportunity that came to us that we couldn't pass up. From the looks of it it was bulilt a while ago. It has currie bumpers front and rear. The rear is the currie bumper and tire carrier that smittybilt ripped the design from. It looks to have a 3-4" lift. Bilstein shocks. Sye done. RC lowers stock uppers. RE express track bars. And comes with full doors and a hard top and the usual accessories.
So it does need some work but its already has a lead on my jeep. What i like the most is the york air compressor already hooked up.
Nothing major but i repainted my front bumper and sway bar cover since it was looking a little faded. I also tried something new by painting the bottom plate of my fabtech bumper hammered silver. I like the look and think i'll keep it for a while. It helps me blend in better here in BroCal
We ran cleghorn on sunday as a little shakedown run for the new jeep. It performed flawlessly thanks to the front locker that surprised us. Im 99% sure it has one so i'll pop the cover off and see whats in there soon.
Here are some poser shots. I didn't get any action shots because we breezed right through it
Got the spartan installed today. I have only driven around the block with it but its very quiet. I got it to unload on me twice in a u turn but im hoping that goes away with the break in. Im excited to try this baby out soon
Finally popped the cover on the brown jeep and found a nice little surprise. I knew it was locked in front but wasn't sure what exactly was in it. It turned out what looks to be a detroit . So being that both jeeps are locked all front now things should get pretty interesting from now on
We ran 2n17x to pilot rock and onto dishpan today. I made it up the first climb by deep creek but the group decided to call it a day from there so i turned around from there. Got a few scratches on the diff but the belly is what needs attention. I need to start working towards a tuck. Other then that, the locker performed amazing and it was a great day
Made a quick little run to Cleghorn. Got lots of pics flexing out on all the ruts. Im really digging the jeeps performance right now. The locker is amazing. The RC springs are really flexy so they are going to stay for a while. The plan is to get some bilsteins with the right measurments and some new arms to make the most out of the travel I have in the springs
