My dad has an H3 so thats why I hate them. We took it off road and it was pretty crazy how much it could do. But its way too nice to take offroad. But it was fun.

I really wish they hadn't used a 7-slot grille...seems like they were trying to steal some brand identity from Jeep when they did so.

Have another question for you guys:
It is time for a lift! I have the UpCountry springs and was thinking about 2"BB. Anybody here done that? My main concern would be a money pit situation where i'd have to buy new parts because my car would be at ~3". Also I'd be concerned with dropping a spring on some dirt road with nobody around. I know BB can do that.

I know springs are the way to go but since I have the UC springs its hard to justify replacing them. Maybe you guys could convince me. If i went with springs id like to go 2.5".... Any recommendations on 2.5" spring kits?

Too late! Ordered the OME 2.5" springs from Kolak
Pretty soon I hope to have a set of Up Country springs for sale if any one should be interested in such a thing!

On the first page of this thread, you can see on the rear bottom that cover over everything bolted all over the place. I want to change my rear differential and doing it on jack stands or blocks, I cannot access those upper bolts holding the cover on. I am thinking I have to take that big cover off. How hard and has anyone tried it and if so any tips? Thanks very much.

the "big cover" is holding up the gas tank.

Here's what I've found easiest:

-Chock the tires
-Jack up one side as far as possible(use blocks to make the jack longer if you have to)
-remove anti-sway bar for easier access.

So what you are saying is if I jack the body up high enough and remove anti sway bar I should be able to get at it without removing anything else? Will give it a go, thanks very much for help.
