Automatic, and its a dog... We do have some monster hills that are a 500-900 foot elevation change, I have to mash the skinny pedal to the floor to even go 55.

I wasn't happy with mine on 33's and 4.10's when we hit the Rocky's , I cant wait to re-gear now that I am on 35's.

definitely not a DJ grill..The DJ grills only had 5 slots, I may be highly confused(prolly just drunk) about a lot of things but this im certain...lol..

but I like the way it looks just maybe not those foglights...

Be carefull while Hugging the Trees...They leave dents on your Jeep....

Early DJ5s used CJ5/CJ7 grills till they decided to put the inline 6 into them, the easy solution was to use the longer (protrudes forward) 5 slot grill to get the engine to fit.

Anywho, Yes, mine is an Auto. With bald 33's and either going up a hill, or into the wind it downshifts frequently.

4wd emailed me this morning and said they sent my order directly to PSC to save on shipping time, and PSC will apparently be sending to me directly..

Tires are in, plans are to go get them installed Wednesday.

Need to sell stuff, nobody buying anything, which is making things go a bit differently than I'd like..

All for now.

Turn OD off. Makes it better. I can live with my rig as is, but hills can suck sometimes depending on what speed I'm at.

I really want to regear, but can't justify the $$ for my rig being mainly a trail rig, with occasional cruising around, which is usually to the trails, haha.

Duely noted, thank you!

Yeah, thats where I usually start. I just have a couple big ticket items that are going to take a while if they sell at all, such as the hardtop which shouldnt be terrible, and the ARB rear bumper situation - that however is going to take a special kind of person.


Last night I got some baseline info to go off of, I am fairly impressed. I truthfully have half a mind to leave the 4" springs and have quite a bit of axle movement..













I believe both the rear uptravel and downtravel are limited to the shocks, too long on the stuff side, too short on the down side.

If I was two inches shorter, in the front I could remove the bumps, and have nice tuckage in the high lines. In the rear if I massaged the rear of the fenders and leave bump alone - I should be good to go.(about 1" until bump still) The front shocks would have to be slightly shorter, and the rear about the only way for perfection would be outboarding to get both the up and down I'd like..

The front locker DEFINITELY does not work. Rear locks in, and light goes solid - front just blinks. I tried climbing a wall and had open diff action!

Probably last picture update for a while. Got the KM2's mounted yesterday, and washed it. Tires seem to ride pretty nice, very little weight to get them balanced, and are relatively quiet. So far so good.

If anybody knows of one, I need a soft top frame, possibly a tailgate bar - but I have everything else.

It's really really tall! I am happy with the overall look however. Rear flares, the PSC highlines and slammed on the ground is going to make this thing pop.

The CJ turns are now fully functional. Previous owner epoxied one of the turn signal sockets into a housing.. Tried to save it, didn't, had to quickly locate another. Fun.

Hardtop sold, ragged soft top and $$ taken in exchange. new canvas ordered today, going to run the soft zip uppers and sell the glass uppers.

Rear Rubi flares acquired. At the paint shop getting tastefully trimmed, and painted oe style.

CV driveshaft ordered. Will allow me to remove the transfer case drop and possibly do a flat belly down the road.

Was all set to order 2.5" RC coils today, but back undecided about lift amount. Wish the 3" savvy coils weren't so expensive..

No high lines yet.

Thinking of installing a trail rated badge for Conner!

All for now.
