Remind them that when the Armageddon comes, everyone will want to get in the Jeep to drive over flipped priuses and hondas.

No shims, or sye, just a drop.

No vibes past 60, but I get a small amount of growl on deceleration at 50.

Well a month later, and I finally got a tire carrier.

A local jeep got totalled, and I scored a c4x4 rear bumper/carrier for $320.

It has the end plates as well.

No pics yet, my computer died, and Im using my dad's.

It look great though.

Expect pics soon.

We did. It has a 2 inch BB, and 31's.

Doesn't look like much, but next to a stocker it is visible.

Hey great looking XJ!. I love that rear bumper. Spare tires always take up to much room!

People are always grabbing the handles, clutching the seat, or stomping an imaginary brake peddle when we're out having fun.

Thanks. All basic hand tools. It really isn't that bad. I'd love air tools, but now all my bolts are easy to get off if I have to.

1/2 inch drive deep dish metric sockets, a breaker bar, and a good jack are important. Don't be afraid to use a big freaking hammer either.

Take your time, use lot's of pb laster, and use quality, lifetime warranty tools.

I love craftsman, because I can get anything replaced at the sears less than a mile away.
