Thanks, I love my little jeep. Laugher is the best cure. I've read your build a few times and your just is great looking
Nice quote. I like it very much. Also congrats on graduating. Im heading back to school in April myself. Kind of excited.

Thank you very much. Its still a steep learning curve, but I think I have gotten a lot of quality additions that I have been extremely happy with. I love the way it handles now with the extra weight on the front.

Yes, I'm know about the quote, there are some groups that use that as a saying....I was just wondering if it had any other significence. I have done some firearms training and just wondering if you had trained at some of the same schools I had trained at.

Thanks!

P.S. They may be coming for them.....

I like it too. Thank you graduated once and I complete the next one in the fall. Congrads on heading back, it's tough but worth it! What will you be studying?

I understand. It is a learning curve, I went from hot rods and muscle cars to jeeps in my building career so I'm still learning as well. Good parts always are always good!

Well, I have had minimal experience with cars being raised by a single mom then going to college in nyc. However I certainly plan to make up for lost time. Ill be going back for a dual masters in engineering and operations management. Im a notoroius slacker, so i plan to skip studying and spend time in the garage.

So since I have a bunch of new people on this thread I will ask opinions. So I will be getting money back from school so I am going to spend a bit on the jeep. So I made a list of things Id like to get either a group of small things or one large thing but there are a few different large things.

Small group:
JKS Quick Discos.
OME Steering Stabilizer.
Some soft discos.
D-Ring iso
Hydro-Graphing kit.

Large things:
Rampage Trail Top.
Currie Anti Rock.
Warn Rock Crawler rear bumper. (too match the front)
Winch and fairlead mount for bumper.
Lower arms all the way around.

Or buy a welder

My vote is Currie Anti Rock. I wish I would have saved a little more $$ and went that way instead of discos.

I would spring for the antirock as well. Only negative is increased bodyroll on road... Which will be mitigated by your new winch!

My buddy's jeep had the AR. I had the privilage to drive his rig for a while. While I did notice a small amount of increased body roll on the street at higher speeds, it wasn't scary by any means. Had I drove his rig long enough, I would have adjusted my driving style and probably not even noticed it after a while. Downtown driving was a dream, ie stops, sharp corners at lower speeds, etc. Offroad even better, more controlled. If you do any amount of offroading, I think it's the best investment hands down, IMO.
