No. 4.88 and 35s already make a 4.0 scream (if you have the 6 speed).

The LJ does have the 6 speed, but its on 37's right now... I was wondering if I switched the 37's onto the TJ and the 35's onto the LJ. I'm kinda thinking the LJ won't have enough brakes, but I've seen where people tow trailers with TJ's on them, with Nissan Frontier 6cyls... I was thinking maybe the LJ could flat tow a TJ...

Today I ordered some Bilstein shocks.

BIL24-187190 for the front, and BIL-185934 for the rear.

I hope they're as good as everyone claims they are because they're much cheaper that the other shocks I considered.

I think you'll be happy with them. I've had a few people ride in my LJ and say that it rode great. It's the best riding Jeep I've owned.

The TJ is for sale but I have so much into it that I'm not getting any interest in my add. I'll prolly switch the Savvy lift, the bumper/tire carrier, the rims and tires, and the front axle off of my TJ onto the LJ and put the LJ stuff on the TJ and lower the price a few grand.

I'm going to do a comparison between the Rancho 9000xls and the Bilstiens back to back on both of my Jeeps and see what I like better. I had the Fox shocks in the past on a similar set up Jeep and I want to see which of the 3 shocks I like the best. I'll prolly end up with Fox racing remote resivours or fox or king coilovers eventually anyways.

Nothing serious.

So, I've been really lazy Jeep wise... I'm basically just enjoying the nicer weather, and trying to figure out what I'm going to do.

It's kinda hard figuring out upgrades when something is already upgraded pretty well to begin with.

One thing that is tops on my list is getting rid of the drop pitman arm that is causing stupid amounts of bump steer:



I also plan on installing a nice roof rack to carry my kayak.

The interior room inside of an LJ is the reason I always wanted one, and why I purchased this one:



A sunset "Selfie" off of the CBBT Pier:



My room mates Son, and his first fish ever!










And 1 of 2 Sharks we caught last night:

Thanks for the compliments! KMA is a local Jeep club, you should check them out http://www.kmaoffroad.org/index.php?

The bumpers went pretty much as soon as I posted them up for sale, I wish everything I try to sell would go that quickly, lol!
