Thanks man. After wheeling a bit the past few months, I feel better clearance and some more protection will do me some good. Looking into sliders and corners for christmas. Also an 8.8 and TT for next summer. The whole shebang includes a V8 with D44/8.8 on 35's without going any higher in the air. Thats light years from now .

sliders are a good investment to make, but i wouldn't suggest buying corners over other things. Honestly i'd recommend doing a locker in your 30, it will work wonders offroad!

I'll have to agree, the corners are debateable... My rear passenger corner got crushed so its pretty fugly right now. Only reason im considering it. Unsure how my D30 will hold up to an Aussie in the front.

Seems my old top isn't as aftermarket as I thought and actually reused the stock header channel. So I gave Baseline4x4 a call and the Rampage channel should be home before I even get there

Opened up the jeep today for the first time all week and saw this...



GPS and radio faceplate are gone. Plus I need a new center console. Out about $200. Sucks so bad.

Top looks good. If I ever put a soft top on, that will be the one.

Nice looking TJ. I'm local to you. I live in Quakertown and work in Easton. Let me know if you ever want to go wheeling. I'm from the Harrisburg area originally and have no one to wheel with out here haha.

Just read your thread and you have built yourself a nice rig . The top looks really good on it , I am curious as to how it will hold up for you over the long term . The first batch had a lot of issues , but it seems that they have worked those out now .

Same to you man, I envy your motor. I'm rarely home (college), but next time we'll meet up. A group of people are trying to start small OHV park in our area btw.

Shiny new muffler, I'd say about 30 more hp now? Oh and my radio faceplate showed up at my dorm today, music at last!
