What did you build your WK for if not the trail?

I did build it for the trail. And i do wheel it. This is more of a rig to work on and learn basics from.

I'd say get the xj and make that your rig to destroy. No reason to beat up on your new grand cherokee. Plus the beater cherokee can flex!

If you can't do that, put the top back on because you're a poser anyway.

this is what I was sayin, you can still wheel the WK, and even better use it to tow the XJ to the more extreme trails and hell that would look bad *** to have that WK towin a tough XJ. And again, I agree you can wheel the WK, but no reason to rag it out, and beat it up by no means...

Today, i took out the storage compartments in my back end to add more room for installing a system. This is something i recommend any WK owner to do. There is only two bolts to unscrew and it just slides right out. And it adds so much room to the backend.

If anyone would like pictures of this, just ask. Ill be posting pics eventually of the system

The problem with having two Jeeps (or more) is that then your money and time is being split between them and it takes even longer to finish. Not that they are really ever finished, but it just takes longer to get them to whatever point you are trying to reach.

I'm in Michigan now and saw you driving yesterday. The rig looks even better in person. Very nicely done.
