Why can't engineering students spell mechanical? You guys must have some proud parents..... Spending all of their hard earned money on your education and you can't even spell your major.

Inginears dont need to know how to spell.
Honestly I'm in engineering too and you really dont need to know how to spell that great. All i do is math and computations. But I do know hot to spell really good, its just a useless tool haha.

When you wheel with this sort of rig (I'm still in Boston, so bone stock is plenty for the moment and a great car for a web designer with no car experience whatsoever to start learning and working on) do you normally do just day trips, or do you ever do anything extended? Like a weekend or week trail?

Especially in California with the Rubicon Trail there, I'd love to hear how this beast of a rig takes it.

(In defense of stock rigs, btw, the old CJ hardmen used to do the Rubicon trail with no mods at all. Granted, that's a CJ stock, not YJ or TJ, but still....)

Incredible work though. Can't wait to see it when the current stage is "finished".

I think you and I might be the biggest grammar and spelling Nazis on the boards and I totally agree. I'm 23 years old and an ex-engineering student. My grammar and spelling are top notch--and I can tell you this much: If you care about landing a job, you better give two damns about spelling, punctuation, and grammar. It should come second nature. If you can't do it on forums, you can't do it well in essays, resumes, and cover letters. Rant off, back to the jeep. It's too tall but I like it nonetheless.

to be honest, my spelling and grammar completely SUCKED when i was in middle school - being on forums and developing the skill through use is probably one of the best things i have ever done as far as sitting on the computer goes. sure i get lazy and i dont capitalize my I's or use apostrophes where "necessary" but what the hell

So you work on a ship... 1)working in an engine room doesn't mean you understand whats going on in all that gear 2) you probably have little to no formal education and your critizing me!!! seriously, i know im not perfect and its just kinda crazy that you think you are! i dont think spelling is useless i just dont think its necessary to fret every little detail, espically in this type of setting. if i was writing a 10 page term paper you better believe i would put a little more time into editing my writing

agreed, i mean wtf are you guys doin in my thread talkin about spelling and grammer... if im some doing something that matters then i will of coarse pay attention and do it nice and neat but when i am out of school/work mode then get off my back. its always the people that are not going as far in life that have to be a d bag about stuff that does not matter.

wtf? did you read the build? then why are you sayin a word? it went to the 37's after the 36's and then was dropped to stock rear springs? i was sittin at around 3" of lift with 37's and tons of travel... for a clean body trim and no cuttin the 7.5 RE kit was killer. dont knock it till you try it. i also had about 2" of BS meanin i was runnin wide and with a longer wheelbase so dont compare my jeep to your pavement pounder. were in two diff levels

it does great! mostly day runs or just single over nighters but i like to get a couple long trips in each year. bein it's hard to get any time away from school or work. rubicon is great but like you said a well equiped stocker can do it just fine. 4 dice and hammers will be a much more challenging trip. ill try and get pics of my rig next time out when its done.

apex i dont get what your deal is.... your wheelin a garbage jeep with money in the wrong places and your ganna come here to my thread and try to critisize me? im glad all you can do is nock my spellin.

ps your rig has its wheel in the air cuz your suspension design sucks. or you dont know how to chose a line. you choose.

as for everyone else stop bumpin the thread unless you have tech. to contribute. or a question to ask that isnt pointless
