Hey man...saw the 26.2 and just had to ask if you actually run that? If so, you have my respect as I've always wanted to run that long in a race, have only made it 25 for fun a couple of times.

Yeap, I've ran 4 Full marathons and 8 halfs - I'm built like a Rugby player as i played a few years at Division 1 and Division 2 level as well as alot over in Germany while Active Duty - so I'm not fast, bigger guy at 5'8" at 225 with little fat so do the math.

I try to get to 215 or less for those long runs though, anything over 5 miles and 220 lbs equal hurt hips, about to head out for a run in a few

Thats the same color as mine. Ive got a sahara myself. Ive got the stock front fenders and inner fenders+4 fender flares if you ever crunch yours up. No painting needed. Couple dents. I like black accents on desert sand pearlcoat jeeps. I went with a Spice bestop r-a-t. Keep at it dude.

Mountain - I may consider that as I love the painted flares and I do wheel alot

Got my top on yesterday, no pic's yet but will get them soon, Loving the Bowless look, definatly different than every other Jeep out there and I'm the first in the area to have it The tint on the windows is nice and it went on with little to no issues Only got this for my kids as they were getting Drenched on the way to school in the mornings and Freezing thier little butts off, it's florida so 90 in the day and 60-70 at night which is perfect to me, but freezing to them in thier shorts.

Expect pic's after I get the Full size spare mounted and get all the lovebugs washed off of her

Heck yeah. Cant wait to see it in Spice. Do you have the auto or manual? If manual you could buy a lo-pro mount and mml and get rid of that t-case drop with the stock skid.

Manual and I've been looking into it, did not want to run the skid, and now those spacers would work perfect for mounting my 3rd brake light to clear the full size spare. Hope to get pic's tonight but it might not happen - have my kids and have a ton to do before dark

Getting bad bumpsteer so ordered up some parts, why shouldn't I do a dropped pitman arm?

Never had the issues until I lifted it, now after alignmetn and tires being balanced I'm getting it all the time, most of my driving is 35-50 mph and that's where it's worse.

ordered up the Steering Stabilizer as the stock one is shot, retorqued everything, and realized I hadn't put the metal inserts on the swaybar ends, but that's all fixed, still hve the problems.

Hopefully the Stabilizer will help, otherwise i'm putting the dropped pitman arm in...

Just got back from lunch where I picked up 50ft of Goodyear Cable, Impact, 8gallon 2hp Compressor, cut off wheel, and air goodness

I know 8 gal is pretty small but it will work for what I'm using it for, and it may lead to me painting the capri in the future as well...

Bought the setup for the Garage, now that i Finally Have one

Welder setup is next I have a 220 Arc, but getting a mig setup next;-)

As an attempt to help with the bumpsteer just ordered up these 14 dollar's worth of parts as well;-) My swaybar shoots to the opposite side constantly, and I think it's adding to the issue, looking into what level the Swaybar is supposed to be setting at stock as well...

Got my BDS Steering Stabilizer in and man was it a ***** to get the old bolt out, my pickle fork was too big so it was only hitting the shock, hit it with air hammer and a sledge and it came out, but made a 5 minute job a 25 minute job.

Drives like a dream now, retorqued all my bolts and No Death Wobble yet, my tie rod was a little loose so not giving the steering stabilizer all the credit, but it drives Much better now period

Will be putting the swaybar stabilizers on in the next few days, was under my Stang pulling the T-56 and the IRS this weekend as i sold them:/

More wave of parts came in

Trailgear Rock Sliders will be going on at the same time as teh Spectre Cowl intake, extending the differential breathers at the same time and going to tweak on the top.

The sliders are big deal for me as there's a run I've been putting off until i got them, between those and the intake super stoked to get it done, would have gotten done this weekend but had reserve duty.

Finally got the Spectre Intake on - sounds wicked and solid 2mpg increase in my city drive and honestly I've been lsting to it from the cowl so I think it might be more, no highway mileage to report yet, sounds wicked though

Slider still not on, and was told by my kids I can't do it tomorrow cause it's "dad's" day and I am not allowed to work on my: Bike, Jeep, or Drag Car

What the hell amd I supposed to do?
