Not that great, it will only talk a few jeeps away and hear just a little farther

Your not hijacking and thanks for the pics. I did some research on it, but could you confirm the specs? HP D44 front, 8.8 rear, 2.5" susp lift, 1" BL, hi lined and 37s.

*edit: I think the front end is out of a full size Ford, do you know if it's been narrowed?

Went down to my pasture to work on my little obsticle course I'm building and quickly realized I need a tummy tuck. Tried from both directions and got hung up either way.










Then when I got back home pulled two of the 39.5 Iroks off the scrambler for a test fit. This is about where it would ride with just the 4.5" lift. 23 3/8" to the bottom of the frame compared to 21" with the 35s. As much as I like it, im kinda thinking JK Dana 44s and 37s.

You shoulda bought my Rubi rocker guards when you had the chance.

Over the mountains and through the woods, across the stream and up the slickrock, down the canyon and over the rocks to nobody's house I go.

Took the Jeep to the stealership on Tuesday for the OPDA making noise. My buddy that works there said the motor missed the recall by 2 weeks but I'm getting a new OPDA and rear main seal covered under the powertrain warranty Parts had to be ordered so hopefully I'll have it back by the end of next week.
