If you want a cat your local shelter should be able to hook you up.

Much more effective than having one shipped in from Metal Cloak .

Had a potluck at my clubs wheeling spot yesterday. Fun day, was out a little longer than expecting, due to some breakage on an XJ that hasn't really been ran in 2 years, but fun no less.

Tried some big stuff, that hopefully others will post up with some pics, but not counting on it... God I need to hire a photographer.








Just slipped off her line...

Uhhh, good thing I have the MC lowers sitting here, waiting to go in...





Not even sure where this happened. Was just doing a look over this AM and noticed. Since this place is soo close to home I didn't even bother airing up, and it even drove home better from the run, than it did to the trails doing 60 on the HW with 9psi in the tires and tracked pretty damn straight...

it keeps me feeling good inside seeing nicely built rigs still on stock arms

Yea, I've been pushing it a lot more recently and knew this would be coming as the passenger front has been a little tweaked, but not too bad.

So I'm glad I have these waiting install, so no real down time, as I'm heading out in this heat shortly to get these suckers swapped on!

Got the front lowers on and called it quits since its just too damn muggy out. But at least I can drive/wheel it til I get the the rears.

Just another shot of the bent stockers:
