Took the jeep out shooting a few more times lately. I've been driving it alot.

I rubbed like crazy yesterday and looks like I pushed my fender in a bit. I really need some more lift haha.

huge? I have 4" lift on 33's....my truck sits lower than a stock 2003 Tahoe (easy comparison).

SOA nets over 6" of lift on STOCK springs, and is a ridiculously common method on these things. Thats not even getting into the other lift options out there. Remember, this isnt a tippy little TJ or CJ. 4" is BARELY any lift.


I rub with even the most MINOR flex. I can bumpstop it if i want it to be 100% useless off road and only ever drive it on the street.

The tires pretty much touch while sitting still on the street. It's not perfect. It looks "full" but the flex and usefulness of this setup is very limited.

Your gonna have to mess with your steering setup too with SOA. Just kit 2'' springs and SOA it and run 35s or 37s. Then you need to buy a set of dana 60s.

I'm not going to SOA it, just said I need more lift.

It'll most likely get a 2" BL here some time that I feel like undertaking a big project. the problem is that all my body bolts are spun....so i need to go around cutting holes in the inside of my tub and welding the nuts back on, then rewelding the holes. Not a huge problem, but it'll take a while.

Took my girl's family out for a lil ride today....

I've actually been driving the jeep alot these last few weekends, shooting trips, and all that jazz.

We all took 2 cars out to Red Rock NCA, and then we loaded into the beast and headed up Rocky Gap Road. I didnt go more than a few miles up, it gets rough up there and with only 1 truck and 7 (yes 7) people in it, i didnt much feel like getting us stranded, haha.

Still some nice scenery. Enjoy, and happy holidays from the wagoneer!


I told them this one ought to be their christmas card for next year:






Me:


The view coming back down:


I challenge any of the TJ/YJ/CJ guys to get a pic like this!

K, go get 7 people comfortably in your TJ several miles from a main road. Then post the pic here. Sans aviators.
