For my 1000th post... a retrospective (lots of pics!)

Well, I started posting here in Oct. of 2003 and here we are in November of 2005. 1000 posts later I think my Jeep has come a long way since I took delivery of her in Feb of 2004. Of course I still have a laundry list which includes:

Currie 1" BL and 1" Raised Motor Mounts
Kilby Gas Tank Skid
Garvin front and rear bumper/swingout
Warn x8000i winch
Nth Mobility Tummy Tucker
"The Source" 5# Co2 system

I still need a new factory soft top too... but I'll take care of that next summer. Until then, I have my sights set on the items above. Once those are all set then it's on to the RE 3.5" Superlfex, AR Baja's and some 285/75R16 BFG AT's (yeah I've got it all figured out )

So that's where I'm at right now. Now here's where I've been. Enjoy the pics and of course feel free to email me with any questions you might have .

Are you trying to copy me? Your going to have to get the x8000i used you know. Warn stopped manufacturing them, I think a few vendors may still have them in stock but they are dwindling. I have the Garvin, it is great. But I just sold it. Just waiting on the guy to pick it up. I have the Nth TT as well and Kilby gastank skid.. I have a MORE 1" BL and MML, that is where we diverge. Oh and as for the source CO2 system why don't you make your own? You will save money. I will forward you a PM Ncb76, aka Nathan sent me. It is great and I just ordered everything he recommended. I think I spent around $175 for everything needed for a 10 lb tank.

32's....

...and yeah they rub at full extreme flex only. Hopefully the addition of the BL will remedy that.

Yeah, I've got a friend who has one in their basement that is just sitting there... it's brand new and they want $600 for it. Can't beat that .
