How do you like the 35 inch KO's?? I usually wouldn't own anything but an M/T, but I got a set on the cheap and have yet to mount them. How are they offroad??

The all terrains are ok. They are really nice on the road but I would preffer having mud terrains off road to be honest. But at 35" the lugs are fairly large and are spaced apart enough to make for some decent traction.


And now for an update:
The front end is now regeared and covered by a solid diff cover.
Also put in alloy axle seals up front and had to replace the drivers side hub.
All I have to do now is break in the gears, change the diff fluid. and hit the trails. I can't wait.
Next move is an engine skid and mounting my rockers.

Any updates Zach? This is the best way for me to keep up with you until the summer. Jeep looks great and I'm happy for your success with mods, and living in the TJ world!

I have not decided if I am going to paint it OD green. I really really want to but I don't want it to turn out like crap and I feel like I should beat it up a little bit more before I take that risk. That being said, I will be painting the fenders black once I make them into flatties this summer. I will also be removing the grille cover and painting the grille black as well. I haven't decided if I should go with bed liner or gloss or flat yet. I am leaning towards duplicolor spray bed liner.

Andy,
Nothing new really. It's been too cold to work on much. I'm loving the 4.88s. As far as mods go, I have almost everything I need to put together an on board air set up and should be receiving my new tire carrier rear bumper from BESRK in May. I need to buy a new header ASAP and then a flat fender kit and an engine skid. Somewhere in there I need to install my rocker guards and when July swings around I'll probably pick up some goodies from the PA jeep show as usual. Damn that's a long list. Should have it all done by mid summer.

I definately think that you should go with the spray on bedliner. I have seen a lot of people on here do it and it looks pretty good imo atleast.

digging the Daily Driver did you buy it with the graffiti on it? I have a 95 escort that is about to fall apart from all the rust. I love my jeep and it is a toss up every day on which one to drive. Anyway like the jeep and I agree with the bed liner think it would look awesome

Actually the car was given to me. A family friend that I've known my whole life is a lieutenant colonel in the army stationed in the Ivory coast. When he left he couldn't take the car with him and since I actually liked the car (unlike most people) he gave it to me. The stencils are old graffitti stencils from a friend of his that used to paint in DC. it's been painted like that since 1992.

Ordered a new exhaust header today while sitting in engines class
Gotta love having the internet on your phone. I can't wait to get rid of this damn exhaust leak.

APN header install went really smooth today. My old Borla header had about 4 cracks in it.
My engine is so quite I can hear all of the other terrible noises my jeep makes. Oh well.

Been awhile.
My rear bumper came from Groundpounder Fab. Bumper is amazing! Eddie truly makes works of art. Not only is it the most stout bumper I have ever seen, the price was unbeatable and the costumer service is some of the best I have ever had. If you need a front or rear bumper send Eddie a PM. His name on the boards is BESRK and he is a great guy to deal with.
I will post pictures in a little bit.
