Drove my newborn baby boy home in it for the first time! As soon as he got in no fuss almost as if he remembered all the rides in it.

I really like the bumper design, but the swing down looks like it would be a royal pain in the butt to lift back up, especially with a heavy tire

Its an aftermarket one isnt it? I dont like those either, the factory one where it sits up in the bumper is where its at.

Heres a pic so it makes sense.

I think i've seen you around the kirkland/bellevue areas .. iirc, I pulled up next to you and started yelling at you to turn to channel 5 on the CB through my PA system, but I don't think you heard me lol.

called and got prices for resurfacing and valve job on the heads for my jeep. best price from a shop i've dealt with before is $285 for both including pressure testing and cleaning. not a bad deal.

other than that, jeep is still untouched though. i'm considering a 3" lift after the head gasket replacement is finished

Finally got my Rusty's Offroad A-arm from UPS after a bit of a fight with them. It all worked out in the end tho.

This thing is pure BEEF! Im very very very impressed with the quality of workmanship and parts used. I was going to try to wait until sunday to install it because the weather is supposed to be 10 degrees warmer, but I might suck it up and dive into it today.

Thanks! It's not that bad to lift. It was designed to add some 100lb gas struts to aid in the lifting, but I didn't end up using them. Just isn't bad to lift at all.
