Project UAV has officially gone cold.

in 60 years, that's called a "barn find".

Seriously though, do what you got to do though man. respect.

Just checked the MPG's by filling up and driving till it ran out of gas, got 13.3mpg's combined city/highway.. and I told my wife we would get decent mileage when I bought it, so glad I have a Jetta as a DD.
Yeah it definitely helps having a gas sipper to fall back on! Hell it costs $75 for my sister to fill up her car in Redondo! The Mini Cooper I'm driving right now costs about $50 to fill up, averages 33mpg... and has some pull to it. It doesn't matter how fast you go around turns, it stays planted. I thought they were the gayest things on 4 wheels until I started driving one, now I think it's an awesome car. So far everybody who I've let drive it has changed their minds on it.

Cleghorn Rd. near Silverwood Lake. It's right off the 15, it's n00b friendly and gives you a good idea of what you Jeep is capable of. I consider a confidence booster trail. Wheel that trail a few times and pay attention to how you get over the obstacles, you'll be confident enough to tackle bigger things pretty quickly.

I learned when I first got my Jeep, that my style is to just hammer on the skinny pedal until I'm clear. It's not body damage, it's a story...

Ask Trevino about my rear end

I'll sell it for scrap before I sell it to somebody else. That Jeep either dies with me, or I kill it myself.

UCF, their lowest profile skid setup in 1/4" aluminum. I've had currie rear control arms for a while now, just put the fronts on a few weekends ago. Man I can't want to kick that factory transfer case skid around once it's finally it's off my jeep haha!

yes, as of now, all control arms have been replaced by the currie arms. However I still have the two factory bushings on the front axle though, as I was not comfortable enough with my welding skills to weld on the currie bushing mounts myself. Maybe later

89 YJ 420,

We probably have about the same experience off-road ... I do have some, but not confident in mine and the CJ's current abilities.

I'm down to try the Cleghorn Road with you. My only reservation is I don't have any lockers, but it sounds like it should still be passable.

Let me know

Anyone else who'd like to go out with some noob's ... you're more than welcome.

G

Cleghorn sounds cool, I really need to break some stuff to find out what I need to upgrade. Since I am a rookie I really don't know what this YJ has or needs, I am hoping someone on the trail would be nice enough to look at my rig and start telling me what I should have on it, I also either have to borrow my friends hi lift or buy one. Has anyone used the ones from Harbor Freight?
