Not that I know of. If I buy a MTRK and try it and it's not what I want I can always sell it or use it on the buggy. It won't go unused.

I still think 35's would be perfect.

Coming from someone who wants to buy your 37s, keep them. They look great!

Lol. On a custom TJ truck?

35's will look proportionately better.

Drove the Jeep on a 150 mile round trip today, I forgot how slow the jeep is going up steep grades. The Jeep goes back under the knife before the first trip out of the state.

Shafts: ten factory
Brand new XJ leafs with bastard leaf
Shock tune
150lbs upper springs up front

Some gears are on my list as well

No gearing is a good match for the Rockies, better gears and you'd just be in 4th. Just sayin. But around town you should reap the benefits for sure.

Merry Christmas everyone! No Jeep parts this year I told the wife not to get me any. I know it's weird, first year in 4 years no heavy Jeep parts under the tree.

Hope you had a good one, at least you had your lights hung and ready for the season.


Going to order up the next round of parts out of the next 2 paychecks. (Gave myself a larger Jeep fund for 2014)

Next up 5:13 gears, 150lbs springs for the COs and New XJ leafs.

That should keep me busy for a couple weeks.

I figured out the issue in the back with the shock valving. Too stiff of compression dampening. If I read correctly faster speeds across multiple bumps or harsher bumps in the road need softer compression dampening.
