I've got an itch to work on the jeep. I need to find a motor. I've been fighting off the itch with cleaning guns, watching top gear uk, and cleaning around the house. If I don t get my truck back soon I will die of boredom.

I am thinking blue strips to brown and white to tan. It looks like a cool little set up. Lift or a drop hitch would be quicker and easier.

Flip flop the axle! Mount it under the springs rather than on top. Cheap lift!

A speed bump, at the right speed, should do the trick. (Temporarily, that is.)

Mammoth is in California. Not sure exactly where. For those of us that aren't ski or board bunnies!
