I went with a Snap-On MG-725. Its like 1,200 ft/lbs of reverse torque. I literally have to warn people not to break their wrist when it goes.


Is it broken?

Thank you for the offer, I'll let you know what happens. I think I've seen your Jeep around town, not too many lifted WJs around here.

Yeah, my letters are peeling, too. Common problem with these. Silver plasti-dip would look cool. I replaced the rear Jeep badge and wide-set the front Jeep letters, just like BlueJc?
It is spelled bumPer, because they bump into things, but that just might be an American thing.

When I was reviewing shocks, I kept seeing people from Tucson leaving reviews. Might not be WJ's. I grew up in Tucson, until I was almost 9. My dad was stationed at Davis-Monthan. It would be cool to look up some of the kids I used to play with back then. I went to Lineweaver Elementary. We came to KY when my parents split. My mom still lives in Phoenix.

Wow, that's a nice one!! unless you break a wrist

I found a local guy that wholesales unsold items from stores and picked up a Husky 1/2 Composite wrench. It was originally $139.99 marked down on sale for $104 and through him i got it for $60 cash I'm gonna see how it works tonight when I break loose the nut on a transfer case front output yoke. It's rated at 650 lb's so it should do the trick.

Yeah, I've seen very few and @ 8" lift and 35"s it definitely stands out among all the JK's.

I think there are more built WJ's in the phoenix/tuscon area than all of So Cal where we are. I rarely see any on the road much less the trails.

Yeah, but it will take you too long to get here and it will get real cold again by that time :-)
Seriously, it just warmed up some and now it's raining, so no rest for the wicked. I am going to
wait until late Feb. or early March,since I don't have a garage. I'm in no rush.

I like those rims. Are you using Fawkes relocation brackets on the bull bar?

Thanks, the bar is actually a Mopar brand. It mounts in place where the tow hooks used to be. And then on the radiator support. I still need to refinish my rock rails and reinstall them.
