Where can you get macks from the beach? What do you use? Avid surf fisherman, but usually just whiting with a drum every once in a while. Family vacay in August in north Florida where the surf fishing's dank

It's a Jeep, it's not supposed to work right all the time.

Did a lot of work in the last week. New radiator, 4.5" Clayton springs front and rear which netted 5" lift for the V8, I then installed an ARB and winch which smashed the front down to a 3" lift, which is not what I was expecting. Now I have the ARB 1" spacer to install to try and make up a little difference and take some of the slope away from it. I don't mind being nose down, but a 2" rake is not happening. I will get pictures posted of how she looks. but again not happy about how much the 4.5" springs smash with a V8, ARB and winch.

ordered LED light strips, looking for rocker switches and a new radiator. I found it spitting coolant from the outer top passenger corner and it being 160k+ miles on it i figure its about that time. Any recomendations from the crowd?

I got the IRO 6.5" coils and my bumper took it down to 5.5". After going back to a stock bumper, I'm at just under 7" of lift with the v8. 2" is a lot of sag for new coils
