very clean look J congrats on the ride.

imo if Jeep was smart they would look and have this capability out of the factory

just look at the scratches as 'offroader's pinstripes'

That thing is perfect, I would LOVE that exact setup for a DD/light trail duty

BTW thanks for my new wallpaper

And i put a few stickers on, the ones for the wheels (people say they look kinda like ferrari wheels now?) and the superlift stick in the window. I put another sticker on the other side with the 4xGuard logo

I've always thought that about those wheels... that's not to say they don't still look sick.

First off, I am amazed by how good the jeep looks. Second, are those from the top of Whealkate...If so I tried to go there the other day and the sheriff said that it was private land. He followed me off the property. As far as I know I thought a company owned it, but the sheriff would not answer me, he just said that someone was shooting back there and I had to leave. I am staying in Houghton for the summer I will have to hit you up sometime. We went to Cliff drive today. Here is a pic.

Thats some sweet pics. But yeah thats from the top of whealkate. They are having some problems with lots of people shooting out there...i dont think its private land though...cant be. Id talk to the MTU four wheelers more about it, not sure though. I know when i went out there, there were lots of people shooting some bigass guns...the towns people are starting to get pissed.

But yeah we should definetly hit some trails up sometime, ive still got a few things to finish up on my jeep...i only took it offroading that one time cus i just couldnt resist, now im trying to wait till i fix the rubbing in my fenders.

I did the pinch weld fix to get the tires to stop rubbing.



Then i filled the gaps with silicon and sealed it up with undercoating.



Ill plastic weld some patches in to cover it all up sometime later this week.
