Sweet jeep! How many miles did you get out of those km2s? How are you liking those duratracs?

I put 60 miles a day on those tires. Not the best comuting tire(hence the Duratracs) I put over 30,000 on em and the guy I gave em to is still running them so...

Its important that your dog is the same color as your Jeep!



And a pic of my ghetto Harbor Freight trailer. Dont knock it. Ive put it through hell and its never given me a problem!



But the good news is I FINALLY got done with school and got a new job making more money than I can count! Theres gonna be some serious modifications coming soon, but first I wanna get some things done to the house. The first thing Ill be saving saving my pennies for will be a long arm upgrade? Not sure which route Im gonna go yet. Im thinkin 4 link. (the 3 links just dont seem right to me). As of right now Im leanin towards Claytons. but Im not really diggin the price.


Any suggestions?
I can't believe that you finally bought a CB!! We could have put that thing to good use at Bradford last summer. I subscribed to the thread and can't wait to see some updates! You should defiantly give me a call when you start adding stuff. I can order a Vinnys pizza, bull****, work on the XJs, the possibilities are endless ... I'm gonna put a build thread for my baby together this weekend sometime because I'm doing a bunch of small(somewhat cheap) mods while I'm saving for a lift,etc..so be on the lookout!

And just for poops and giggles I figure I might as well show of my WJ too. It just has a 2" BB with some skycrapper shocks. Just put a new set of 31" Goodyear Silent armors on her. Super nice tires. I really like em.





Its the wifes Jeep so Im not allowed to have too much fun with it.

I got rid of my KM2s because they were bald.


Anyway, had some time today to work on the Heep so I decided to pull up my carpet and start preping for some bedliner. Ive never had it up before so I was curious to see what I could find. And sure enough...





The passenger side and rear look pretty good.



So I ordered a new floor panel and gave my buddy a call. Hes a MUCH better welder than me. It would look like a retarded monkey welded it if I did it.

So I guess that will be next weekends project

Nice XJ, that tailbone is sweet, i like how it keeps the stock bumper in tact. Keep up the good work.

So I gotta little crazy ratcheting down my canoe a couple of weeks ago and broke my cross bow that my roof basket attached to so I figured now I have a reason to upgrade! I never really liked the set up i had goin on anyway so I ordered a Kargomaster 52x60 and mounts....

I really like the stoutness of it but Im not so sure I like the looks of it. I think its a little too wide and it needs to sit a little closer to the roof. Maybe itll grow on me, but I think theres gonna be modifications

I had a concern about using the stock crossbars, so I added another set (total 4) to spread the load and make the whole rack a lot stronger. The lightbar was built from a 2x2 aluminum fence post and Northern tool mini-halogen lights.
