Took it out to make sure everything worked as it should before tomorrow's wheeling session. I need new control arms that don't hit the spring perch and bar pin eliminators. Over all, its not too bad

Was your leg shaking on the clutch from the adrenaline?

..its hard to fight those reactions like an arm out.

It definitely was! Experiencing that for the first time was definitely a rush. I had broken my exhaust manifold earlier in the day, so it was running rough during this too

Got some 35s! They're 17s though, so I swapped the KM2s and alloys to the XJ and moved the JK Moabs to the TJ. Will mount these tires tomorrow or saturday

With 255/75/17s


The 315/70/17s. Yes they're A/Ts, but they were $100!

Picked up a Ford 9" out of a 73 ranchero. 3.25" tubes and 61.25" wide. Perfect!
