Nice Jeep, like the color

Those jj arms are nice, I know I felt a noticeable difference after installing them.

If your interested, I have a basically brand new AEV oil pan skid. It was installed and on my Jeep for about 2 months, but was never offroad.


When the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem starts looking like a nail.

There are other ways of adding belly clearance without lifting your vehicle off the axles...like 40s, 42s, 44s, etc

Thanks man! I originally hated the patriot blue. Bit it has totally grown on me. Bit still when I repaint it I will prolly go white or od green.

The arms are amazing. The ride I have now I prefer 10-1 over stock.

And yes that oil pan sounds great. You have any pics?? I would love to snag that off you

You said you needed to put limiting straps on, what length did you go with? Where did you mount them? Cause I need to put some on mine.

yea i beat the **** out of my xj, even with a trashed trans, blown diff, broken u joints, and bald tires it still made it up susicide hill. a local spot around mt neck of the woods, it like a 200 yard incline at about 60% and the last 15 yards is like 70% it was scary as shiit but she made it. i had to sell her tho. so i got a rubi!!! and man i love it.
