Haha i guess so, yea im a little weary buying used so once i find a good deal that i have first dibs on they will definitely be scrutinized heavily.

Back from Florida. Had a great time. Surprisingly, I found at least one Jeep off pavement. Sea Turtle rescue!



Still waiting on discos from JKS. A few small mods are coming from my birthday as well. Between the new swaybar links, front driveshaft, painting body parts, and replacing fluids, I think July will be more of a maintenance/repair month.

On another note, I took the girl to see Spiderman last night at the drive-in. You can tune the radio to their channel to listen through your vehicle. Having the sub under us made the movie that much better! SirGCal box = recommended.

Just before heading to jersey yesterday, Brown Santa showed up at my door to drop off my JKS hardware Pretty pumped to try them out.



Also did my oil change, and got gear lube for the diffs. How the hell did it cost so much, I don't know, but its Lucas. So hopefully I'll have the links on and the diff fluid changed next week!

I've mentioned that my tires are used. Well they ended up being dry-rotted. And on the way from Jersey, my rear left blew out. The result:



In addition to fixing all that, i'm going to have get 5 new tires.

Didn't hit anything, the tire tread flew off and ate my rear-corner.

Pound the damage out, get some corners, and use this opportunity to get some real tires.

Trying to find some cheap aluminum corners. Rear LED's are in the works. I'll have to convince the family to lend me cash for a set of 5 KM2's. Not gonna be easy

Hint: Make friends with the local tire dealer and get tires for super cheap. I'm gonna be getting my spare for basically nothing.

Worth a shot I guess! I always made the assumption online pricing was better.

Dont forget, KM2s arent your only option. Look into other brands! You dont necessarily need the best name, right?
