You could do the reformed tank mod that all the YJ dudes do, have you seen that? Allows 3 or 4 inches of stretch and doesn't need a expensive *** tank.

I don't know if its the added weight on the back, or the MC rear uppers, but the ride is MUCH better. The rear end floats over the bumps just as the front does now. I'm very pleased.

Went wheeling today at Uwharrie. Finally did the hard side of Daniel, but took the moderate trail. Did much better than I though I would. Only damage at the end of the day is a tiny scrape on my control arm mount from where it landed on a rock. Can't complain if thats the worst of it Here are some of the best pictures my friend cate took.
















And a couple of the group and scenery.




And from this trip, I know exactly what I need to buy next. A new seat. My back was dead by the end of the day, and without doors the seat wouldn't support me enough and I kept sliding out. I need something more supportive and comfy. One of these weekends, probably after exams, ill do like Beasley did and check out a few different seats. Really interested in the PRP's.

All in all it was a good day.

Oh man I know what you mean about the seats. I don't know about my girlfriend but my driver seat kills my back after long trips. I plan on upgrading, but I want to get the armor stuff done first (TT, GTS, corner armor).

I was going to wait until I get steering and a few other things, but there's no way. I need it soon.

Cleaned most of the mud off, blew out and wiped off the dust from the inside, and put the top and doors back on. Now time for another uncomfortable drive back to Boone.

It looks like ill have a 4 day weekend for Easter. In that time I'm going to try and get the wheels rebalanced, and go look at seats. Does anyone know if the 4wp or tarheel 4wd store in Charlotte do road force balancing? It'd be nice to knock out two birds with one stone. I've also been thinking about chopping my front bumper and moving the fog lights inwards. Maybe ill have the photoshop gurus whip up something.

Also, for the giggles and ****s, what's everyone opinion on the tire on the back? I'm talking strictly appearance wise. I didn't think I'd like it, but it's growing on me.

I like the spare on the back as long as it matches like you have

That's what I'm thinking. And I'd get an exogate to keep everything clean looking back there.
