Plus buying it off of another Jeeper is not nearly as much fun as going down to sun valley for the junkyard, eating questionable food off of a mexican food truck, finding an explorer, pulling the axle out while listening to mariachi music in the back ground and getting sooper greasy, loading it into my Jeep and then running to the worst porta potty in the world on the other end of the junkyard to **** your brains out from the questionable mexican food.
You mean like I did when I pulled that axle? This 8.8 is turning into my little whore baby......

Haha! I hate junk yards with a passion..

Well then maybe ill buy it, let it collect dust in the corner of my garage just like the TJ D35 is thats already there and then sell it again in a couple of months.

On a side note, **** that powerhouse fire. All the trails by my house are closed and I keep finding ash in every nook and cranny in my jeep.

Lol it would feel right at home. Pretty much all its been doing since he pulled it.

I've had a ton of interest in this thing and nobody commits. It's a good price right??

seared a ribeye on the charcoal chimney tonight! The chimney is actually way to hot, hah! the inside is still super raw, so about 10 more minutes in the grill with the coals dumped out came out juuust right, probably a medium rare or medium. But the super hot char was great, a nice crisp outside. I've never cooked up a thick steak like this (it was about 1.5" thick).

got it all almost done. 3.5" lift with new track bars and new drag link, and new wheels and 37" MTR Kevlars had to trim a few things here and there for the tires to fit. Tomorrow we'll align the front, (it probably has to much tow out, it's a bit drifty on the road) and adjust the drag link so the wheel is centered, and weld up the holes in the factory Rubi sliders and bolt those back on again. Will make some better mirror arms too.

Interesting, that the jeep is so long that the pinion angle doesn't even need to be adjusted with 3.5" of lift! And the axles have high pinions, that's neat The JK jeeps really are alot different than the TJs, looks like nearly everything was redesigned, not just the body.

Not right now I don't think. There's some other stuff that's going to happen later, beefing up the axles, and probably regearing I imagine.

Did he notice a big difference in the way it accelerates with those 37's
