Lift the whole front end off the ground by the frame so the suspension droops out all the way. I want to see how far it goes!

My AR is coming back to me today or tomorrow. I plan to run a bit of ammo through it this weekend, and if all is well, it'll be for sale.

Stay tuned for updates!

Dear Garza,

Thank you for contacting me about your Jeeps feelings. It is obvious to me from the pictures that your Jeep is very sad and wishes to now either be gray or share garage space with a gray Jeep. Do not fret, as we all know purchasing yet another Jeep and keeping it happy can be an expensive undertaking. I have found the solution for you! In my garage, there just so happens to be a gray 2004 Rubicon. I suggest that you bring your obviously unhappy Jeep over to my house so these two Jeeps can live together in harmony for the rest of their lives. Please leave the keys and title in the mailbox at my address. I will update you from time to time on how your Jeep is getting along in its new environment.

Sincerely,
andy02

You know what's crazy to me about Garza's jeep is I believe those are 37's yet they don't look big at all!

I personally think it needs some rear fenders, it looks to empty back there. Purely cosmetic and purely my opinion. You don't have to care one bit... LOL

Lol yep the Falken's are a very small 37" tire. My 75% tread MTR's are 5/8" taller than the new tires. I'm going to run the crap out of these and see how they do. I even have the TT race team pushing me to run Toyos. So there is no telling what I'll end up with.

As far as the rear flares, I have a bolt on set of aluminum ones in the works. That way for street driving and dirt road pounding I can keep some stuff off the back of my head.


Andy.....just reading that and knowing you took the time to write all that has me laughing MAO! We'll meet up and the Jeeps can rub tires lol

Dear Garza,

While I can understand your reluctance to park your Jeep in my garage for the rest of it's life, I must warn against allowing your Jeep to rub tires with random Jeeps. You nor your Jeep know where those other Jeeps have been. If you feel that it is a must, might I suggest avoiding Jeeps with things such as tire shine. Those Jeeps are typically compensating for something or hiding underlying issues. The last thing you want is for your Jeep to contract a disease like death wobble from one instance of tire rubbing with some unknown Jeep. The utmost care must be taken to avoid Jeep STD's and we cannot allow ourselves to over look dominance issue when it comes to Jeeps of the same sex.

Sincerely,
andy02

I have both you can use and would actually be doing me a favor as they are in my way for the next couple weeks anyway. If you want to get them tomorrow, PM me and I'll get you my number and the address where they are at.....close to S Valley View and Sunset
