After about 2 weeks, finally picked mine up from the body shop. Got rear-ended around Labor day by an F150. We were sitting in traffic for an accident, barely moving. No idea how this chick hit me so hard. Ended up being over $5k worth of damage...

The unibody was slightly tweaked and the body shop guy said they busted the frame machine trying to pull it straight. Said in the middle of pulling, the machine exploded hydraulic fluid everywhere lol.

Last week, got a cheap muffler (waiting for my lift before doing the whole exhaust), has a horrible drone between 1700 and 2200 RPM. Ugh!

Saturday, the alternator died. Replaced it on Sunday with a shiny new reman. Works great.

Climbed a 2100' mountain on a 2.7mile access road with lots of switchbacks and washouts. Enjoyable drive.

Get to do a 1200'/.9 mile climb tomorrow.

That's what I was wondering honestly. Its an 04 Overland with only 75k miles, so the retail value is around $10k. Not the 75% of value to total it unfortunately...

4"+? I have 255-75-17 BFG MT's with a 2.5" Bb.. Trimmed alittle bit and don't rub at all. Do some moderate wheeling as well with no problems. In reality I actually probably have less then 2.5" because I don't have my Front isolaters in which is like an inch right there.

Replaced both headlamps with Sylvania zXe bulbs, so far so good, very white, not blue like the "ricer crowd" Had a 20% off coupon, so I got them for a bit less then the $60 everybody local wanted for the pair.
