No updates. Savvy is sending me a hoop for the bumper when it comes out (thanks Gerald ), and I have an upper rear arm bracket that's extremely wallowed out that I need to fix but other than that, I'm at school in Utah, and it's under a cover at home in MD till I return.

I used to have a black LJ and ruined it... I found a white one to replace it but I've never been a huge fan of white (looked alright just not my fave) I kept thinking about how good yours looked so I finally pulled the trigger on a white LJ and white is really growing on me... Just saying you got a nice LJ man keep up the work

Glad to hear I had an influence! White wasn't my first choice when I was looking for my jeep either but one popped up and it really grew on me too. I love it now! Congrats on the new rig.

I wasn't allowed, it's quite a haul to drive here from Maryland too. I'll have it out here within the next few years.

Not that anybody cares but i'm bored and haven't posted anything is a long time. Been thinking about what I want to do this summer, and since I'll hopefully be bringing it to Utah with me in the fall, i think I'll just finally do/fix all the little things i've been wanting to do.

Mainly (for durability and drivability):
-Fix wallowed out control arm mounts and messed up arms

Next (for a snowy/salty area):
-Repaint/powdercoat bumpers, rockers, coils, wheels, and anything else that could use it.
-Some sort of spare tire snowboard rack

Than just get a couple of the littler things I'd like if possible:
-Ravine wheels?
-full rubber floor mats/bedlined?
-stereo
-seat covers

Sounds good! Im the kid who bought your brothers Wagoneer, by the way.

I was checking out your TJ when I picked it up, looks pretty awesome. My dad has a white 2000 that I do most of the work on. I need to put a V8 tie rod on it as well. And the whole exhaust has to be redone.

You say you have full soft doors for sale? Id be very interested.

PM me if your really interested in selling those soft doors!

I would only have to agree... thats quite a beating on a skid plate when 2tons of weight gets slammed on top of it...

Great to see it hold up so well...

The only concern I have, is that skids overlap, and one of them is layered where I would see if you are reversing on a rock, would that get you to HANG on it, or how did you see it happen in your case?

I've never had a problem that I can remember with having that little overlap catch on something. It's really not bad, even if you did hang up it's nothing giving it some gas wouldn't fix.
