Moar pictures!



Took this one 2 years ago in the same spot...



Certainly has morphed a lot since then lol





Was visiting family. Decided to throw it up next to my dad's stocker Liberty for a size comparison. It's actually not all that taller, which I quite like....



Oh and Josh, I got a wild hair up my ***. I can get a Currie Rock Jock 60 for the rear end brand new with an OX locker, chromoly 35 spline shafts and disc brakes for 3600.... or I can beef the **** out of my current D44, do a drum to disc conversion, buy an OX for it, blahblahblah for about the same price, and still have an inferior axle that would actually sit lower to the ground than the Rock Jock 60.... for the same price.... and all I'd have to do with the 60 is swap it under. Opinions?

Same goes for my HP30. I think I've eliminated that idea completely, as to do what I'd wanna do to the HP30, I'd be in for about 3600.... or I can just get a new, built D44 with an ox and chromoly shafts for 2900$.... Seems sorta like a no brainer, eh?

Your call buddy but you can always throw those 4.88s in for now until you are ready swap in the beef. Your stockers will be worth more with 4.88s in them then 3.73 gears. You would be surprised how well you stockers will hold up. As long as you are rocking 35s you will be fine with 30/44 combo.

Jeep looks awesome boss!

yea I know that and I most DEFINITELY intend on throwing those gears in for now, if nothing else to save me gas lmao. I just figure in the long run, instead of building it piece by piece, I can just fork over the same amount (actually slightly less) in one big ultimate chunk, and have far more beef, and additionally more clearance. But believe you me imma be driving to Colorado on 3.73 in the near future to visit an ole buddy of mine ahah

I'm a computer geek, I needed something that suited my ways. On that note, I can replace the laptop with anything that accepts a 3.5mm jack, so iPod, PSP, Mobile Phone etcetcetc. It works well for me.

Couple images to better understand... (note the brown JeepForum icon I made for my dock... yea... I'm an addict lol)

And the amplifier under the rear seat, prior to drilling and mounting it (looks messy)
How do you get it from sliding around when you turn

I also have the XRC stinger and if u were wondering how much punishment it can take... couple of weeks ago i slid my jeep off of a 15 foot drop on a mountain and as i was flying through the air the stinger clipped a tree and tore a huge chunk out of it! Still looks perfect. Wish i could say the same for the rest of my tj lol.

The base of the battery sits in the crook of the dash almost perfectly. Having said that, I no longer have that same setup. As of late I've just been using my phone snapped into a GPS holder on the windshield. Having said that, the power inverter and hard drive are still there in case I bring my laptop along or for any auxiliary things I decide to run off the inverter.

Same boat

Activists would hate on me like crazy if they knew I took out a small oak tree...



My future plans, if not already stated include a D44 for the front, Rock Jock 60 in the rear. UCF 6061 armor coating the underside, though I think I'll do the Savvy tank skid. PSC cage and Smittybilt X2O 10k comp. winch. Also looking into a viar setup and possibly a second battery to run all my auxiliary crapola el grande.

My new bling arrived.... Who Dat!? Also got rid of my old Rockford 10" sub and installed a 10" bazooka tube. Thing hits like Mike Tyson (sans biting of course.)

Will up a picture of that tomorrow.
