Haha three months without my baby is too long.
I hear you. I had to go to Cape May for Coast Guard basic and I really missed my Jeep. I kept seeing good looking Jeeps which made it even worse.
Welcome to the Gulf Coast. When you get your Jeep make sure you look up the local Jeep clubs. Emerald Coast Jeepers is one.

Looks good!

I have been debating on whether or not to go with 33's or 35's. Yours looks good on 33's!

That is actually my big debate right now, haha. I'm in need of new tires here shortly and am itching for 35's but I just don't honestly know if I need them seeing as my 33's have handled just about everything very well...decisions, decisions..

*update*

I just picked up a full set of Currie CA's. I'm thinking abut getting the front housing JJ kit from Savvy but haven't decided yet, it would be kind of a PITA considering I live on base and do not have ready access to a welder. The arms should be here on Monday but considering the Holidays are coming up I'm not sure when I'll get a chance to install them, maybe I'll just do a pair per afternoon, who knows.

Found a local spot with some pretty cool hill climbs and stuff but ended up getting a bit overzealous and of course the next day the temps dropped to below freezing so all that mud is literally frozen to the Jeep. I tried to wipe it off but the windex froze almost instantly to the windows . Plus my driver door got jammed so I had to take the entire panel apart and fiddle with it until I could fix it, gave it a good white lithium treatment and it opens better than stock now!

Will follow up on the CA's as they get installed, I'm hoping to really clean up the ride in the coming months so the plans are as follows:

- CA's
- Anti-Rock
- SYE/CV Shaft
- Currie Steering
- Vanco Brakes

The brakes might have to wait until after I get off Cruise but we'll see. I am really not liking how the Jeep stops and I've only got 33's which is one of the reasons I've decided not to make the step to 35's just yet.

Had some free time so my cousin and I made our vehicles a bit more festive, when I got back to base tonight one of the female MA's took pictures at the ID checkpoint and held up like 5 cars.

Currie arms should be getting here tomorrow, hopefully I'll be able to get those done before Christmas but we'll see.

Well so far they look good in the box . It's probably going to take the better part of this week working on and off to get them installed then I'll be sure to let you know.

I'm paying attention and the only thing I see wrong is you don't have square headlights. Great lookin' ride dude and good luck with the service.

Picked them up for 600 used but in great condition. I'm pretty happy with the price.
