Now I've got full-circle, trying to make my Jeep go faster (at least a little faster).
time to build a jeepspeed racer.

When Savvy was selling their LJ from the KoH EMC I thought pretty seriously about it. But not being street-legal was a big drawback for me.

There's a wrangler for sale on jeepspeed.com right now with some wins on it's record right now. I think it's only like 17k fully prepped.

I know what you mean, this was my first car. I kept it up until I found the jeep a couple of years ago, looking back on it now and after reading all these threads about LS1 swaps in TJs I wish I would have kept it.....

You're both gay because you're both afraid to take your jeeps off road.

Dude seriously? You can't handle the 4 banger you have in your jeep now.


PS. Danny says if we looked in your gayrage right now we'd probably see a clothesline hooked to your roll bar with your pantyhose hanging from it.

Hey Guys!

Looks like the trails at Miller, and the ones going into and out of Hungry valley are toast. The forest service will proably now close the whole area to motorized travel
They did that after the "DAY" fire in Lockwood, and over to Reyes area.
Now that the forest is gone, there may be some really gnarly mudslides back in the Grade Valley, and Yellowjacket Trails.
Frazier Mtn, and Alamo are probably pretty tore up too.

There is a semi on fire in the slow lane of the 15S. Looks like the right side was on fire. No trailer or they were able to spot it really quickly.
