The trip took me from Thursday morning, until Saturday afternoon. Aprox 60 hours total.

So, now I'm in California. San Diego to be more exact. I've already got a rear bumper, tire carrier, and roof rack for my Jeep, but they're all back in Virginia at the moment.

I'm kinda drooling on the Savvy front and rear high clearance bumpers though, and since I'm right down the highway from them, I might pick those up for my Jeep, and then sell the bumpers I already bought.

Since I'm this close to Johnson Valley, I'd like to get out there and run a few of the Hammer trails, but I know my Jeep won't make it as it sits, so I'm looking at a bunch more Savvy parts to upgrade my rig so I can go have some fun in the desert.

While I would love to put this rig up onto 40's and Dana 60's, it's simply way to far out of my budget at this time, so what I'm looking at is sleaving/trussing/gusseting my front axle, and running 37's and a nice Currie/Savvy lift.

The trick is I need to be able to drive all the way back across the country after wheeling the Hammers... which will really suck if I have to nurse it all the way home because of death wobble or some other steering suspension ailment...

So, I'm not sure where I'm gonna go yet, but I do know I don't want just another JK on 35's and a cheap budget lift...
