alright folks, i guess its time to start a thread on my new project.
my other build came to an abrupt halt after an engine fire that rendered it a total loss. i will still keep that thread updated as needed as i know some people are curious to the cause of the fire.
anyways, after looking over the internet i came across a white LJ Rubi in Austin, TX w/160K on the clock that had a price that was low it almost scared me away. but my curiosity got the best of me and i called, put a refundable deposit down on it and had my uncle who lives there go shake it down and see if it was a good buy.
it was, and a week later i was on my way up to Austin to pick up the new jeep.
in safe keeping at my uncles place
after getting it home - 315s in the rear, 305s up front
ordered 2 new fronts to match the back tires and painted the rims with plastidip.
and drove it like this for a few weeks. i think i put more miles on this jeep in a week than i put on my TJ in 3 years
also, to note, the jeep has some sort of budget 3" lift w/ fixed lowers and factory uppers, some progressive springs and bilstein 5100s all around.
also had currie currectlync steering already. great, one less $500 thing i had to buy.
