Yeah, still an option we are looking at. But, nothing solid as of today.

It's pretty stale around my life at the moment....

Feels good to be able to walk out in the garage and start up the Jeep and drive if I want to. Now if I can ever find time to get her legal. :

You have a pretty serious set of skills, just a matter of finding the new/next right spot. Hit up the Charlotte job scene, I know of one or two rigs that need your attention right away .

The Jeep is legally mine and registered for the road. Just add some insurance.

So I had my first gawker tonight, I drove the Jeep down to the gas station. He walked ever so slowly from the pumps then back from the station to his car and never looked away. Then as I drove off he just stood and stared.


I need to get the rear shocks tuned for sure, they are a little harsh. The Jeep kinda wanders,could be to much caster, but its been atleast 8 months since I drove a TJ. It could also just be the PSC steering box, its so touchy.


I need to drive a stock Jeep to compare, I am still not totally stoked on this Jeep, so It may just go up for sale in a few months.

Fixed all the check engine light related codes. Now its just finish the cage and fix all the little quirks.
