Yeah, now we are going to see whose jeep does better, mine with a locker up front, or his with a locker in the rear. Should be interesting.

Well I finally got to test out my ARB...It leaks occasionally and sometimes won't activate. But when it activates it really is a beautiful thing.

Also bent up my front DS real nice and almost flopped it this weekend

Near flop, I am pretty much resting on that little tree...you can tell how close it really was on the video (gotta get a cable to upload it)








The carnage...

Me too...I banged around on everything that was metal underneath my jeep. I am surprised I drove off with nothing else broken. My oil pan has a bunch of scratches and scrape marks but no dents thankfully.


Once I order it and install it I will go beat it up and report back here.








so hows your jeep coming along sport?

If there is one thing I wish I woulda done earlier, it would be skids.

So the steering skid is definitely a good idea. And as for new rubber, what tire are you thinking of? I love the KM2s but the old Goodyear MTRs are growing on me as well. And I saw quite a few Super swamper radial TSLs doing good things as well.

As of right now (i am basing all of this on road wear because its a DD) Mickey MTZ's, Goodyear duratracs or the Cooper STTs.

The Goodyear duratracs look pretty cool and I have heard a lot of good things about the Cooper STT. The KM2s are still too new to really have any good idea of how they wear.

Yea it might go back to a shootout between the STT or the Duratracs based on how much i expect to be "wheelin" in my stocker for now lol. I like the Km2s but they would look kinda off being 31s on my stocker haha. i have to be at least lifted to rock a kick *** lookin tire liike that

Yea I guess that aggressive of a tire may look odd in that size. But why not do a 2-2.5" lift and 1" body then get 32s or even 33s?

lol I'm still upset I didn't go with 1tons and 40s ...the fact that I can't afford it eases the pain

lol i do plan on getting the 2 inch BDS and a 1 inch body if i decide to go 32s in the future but the 2 inch by itself looks great with 31s. And with the 3.73 ratio i shouldn't have to worry about 31s OR 32s as far as power loss. But i don't plan on going very big or anything. I like slightly lifted look that still gives me the bad *** factor, plus my dad still wants to get in the jeep, can you say tube step rocker guard?
