too much jeep, not enough time

sooo i just finished the install of my RE4.5 SF lift. its been out of commission for about a week, it felt sooooo good to drive it again. we had 80s weather 2day in michigan. except now i have to take out the silly tcase drop and install the SYE. im actually in the middle of that right now. there is always something else im wanting to do. heres some pics though







hopefully i can get this finished ASAP and get my tom woods ds in the mail because i am going out of the country on the 2nd and will be gone for 6 months. anyone want to jeep sit for me??? ive got my 488s and detroit trutrac on the menu for when i return. man, jeeps are like drugs...i dont know how ill get my fix in europe

If you cant find drugs in Europe, you'd better quit looking!
Your Jeep looks nice! Wish I could find money to throw at mine.

ya man, i swear, you think youll be happy after doing just that one thing, then you see something else you want to do. its like having jeep ADD. how do you like the 456 with the 35s?

over in the kzoo, gotta love anything abover 60 in michigan in march, especially when there is no rain

The 4.56 gears and 35's work great together. I know alot of people on here will say go with 4.88's but the 4.56 does just fine for a DD. If you tow something or wheel hard then 4.88's I guess would be better. My jeep feels like it did stock (get up and go power wise). I previously had 3.07's and 32" tires and that was a bad combo. No power at all.

True that. Closest thing we got is the Mounds up in Mount Morris. I'm sure there'll be a group from here heading up there once it re-opens for the season if you'd care to join us.

Nice rig, by the way!
