Haha didn't paint the rim go into some mud and left I for a little bit cause it looked cool! Good luck with your jeep!

Here are some pictures of wheeling trips earlier this year some are from the Badlands and big rock offroad park










And those of you familiar with the badlands will recognize the mistake I made here! Jeep is fine though did this on Friday and then wheeled all weekend! And I changed all fluids asap!




And I had a Cherokee driveshaft retubed for a new front drive shaft which I bent pretty badly at bigrock


Right now I have no new plans for the jeep I am saving up for cheap daily driver then I will get back to working on it and if funds are available I will go 1tons and 40s!

In the front I Recomend a Aussie for the price it works great and in 2wd on the street you can't even tell it's there except for the ratcheting sound which I kinda like.

I went with the rough country 3.25 lift which I was pretty happy with clears 33s easily. The mileage factor I've kind of given up on due to the fact that it's a brick with mud tires haha with the overgearing kills mileage on the highway and it still isn't great in town 10 at best that's why I'm try to buy a daily driver cause there's no really hope for mileage in jeep unless I go diesel

gas isnt a big factor in my planning i was just curious. . .
on your lift did you get rid of the t-case drop and if so HOW and did it work how you want it to ??
oh and by the way if you have to order and parts from the dodge/jeep house email me, im a sales man and get employ pricing on all parts might can help you out on some stuff but you know how expensive crap gets at these dealerships lol. im for sure getting the aussie up front it seems like the perfect mod for my wheeling

Yea I like the rough country lift it is good quality and they are great to work with.
I got rid of the tcase drop by doing a motor mount lift, I went cheap and didn't do a body lift with it like most recommend but it was fine just a little fab on the fan shroud. and I'll keep noted of need parts

Love the pic of you coming out of the tube Jeep looks good man. I ran the MML without a BL for a lil over a year before I got the body lift. Your engine coolant bottle top is most likely going to rub the underside of the hood unless you figure out a way to move it down. It'll take off paint from the engine torquing and what not.

what are your plans for your front bumper. . . winch? new bumper? lights?
i heard if your driving fast enough a ford focus attaches real easy to your front end ha ha ha you get serious points for it but over all drivabillity goes down the $hiter

look into metal cloak they have base cost starter bumpers that are awesome and you can add onto them as funds are avalible

nothing is in the plans for a front bumper right now, i cut the stock just cause i got bored and it looked cool. I will make my own front bumper whenever in the next few years when the 1 ton build happens. for a winch i would love a warn 8274.
