LOL. I was laughing when you said "and we didnt break anything" Now I see why that was so amazing. I can only imagine if you had.

You:Hi, I just got a new JK and it has been having some allignment troubles.
Dealer:Have you been off road or anything that might cause these troubles
You:No, just a little snow to and from work.
Dealer:Ok,well let me check that out for you.

95 minutes later...

Dealer:Sir, um I dont know how to say this, but we do anything for you. Your front axle is bent and the vehicles computers tell us it has been jumped and driven in snow. This voids the warranty. We can fix it, the new Jk axle housing is $2,500 for the parts, another $1,500 for labor to install. You're looking at $4,000 out the door to get your jeep running again.

You:......I don't know what you will say, but it will be funny.


Do yourself a favor and stop jumping your jeep...Save that money for mods to make that JK look as cool as the TJ. I cant imagine how much it must cost to jump them like that.

Great Shots! I was doing the same thing a few weeks ago but the wife took the camera when she left so I have no shots. Its no fun until you break something anyway.

I used to always get cracks in the drivers door when I did that with my 93YJ and same thing happend on my 98TJ. Lets see if the JK will hold up. At least there are no leaf springs to bend anymore.

Hilarious!

Yeah, it was probably a late 70's model with Burt Reynolds driving it.

Do yourself a favour and stop telling people what to do with their own stuff.
