Double edged sword there. The 4.7 is a good performer but not very reliable. They have a couple of other issues as well as far as off road capability. Not as much ground clearance being a big factor. Although when modified they can be just as capable as anything else. I like em.

I have a 4.7 in my Commander, 88k miles and no issues.

We've talked about doing random body stuff and skidplates and stuff. I highly doubt it'll ever see the light of day though. Tooling on a hood alone would be enough to probably scare the owner off from trying it.

Uhhhh, I'm building an exploder. I'll compare aftermarket support anyday! Seems like about 90% of what's made for them is stuff from guys working out of their garage that are willing to duplicate and sell something they built for theirs.

A bit wider then it was...



Front suspension is totally over rated!



Man that's a goofy looking thing!





Tonight's goals... Get outta work around 4ish instead of 6ish like yesterday. Get axles pulled out of the beams. Drain oil and pull 3rd member off beam. Pack up 3rd member to drop off at Adam's with other 3rd member to some parts swapping. Torch off rivets and pry off coil buckets from frame rails.

If I can get all that done in a reasonable time, I'll work on putting some of the interior back together inside Red and also maybe work on the last 2 remaining dzus fasteners.

If all goes really well... Tomorrow after work I'll hopefully get whitey stripped down bare and I can start hanging the stock parts under whitey so that I can get it back on it's wheels.

That would be rad cause then I can maybe see if I can get my Dad to yank a ton of stuff off of it that I want to keep for spare parts next week once my parents get into town and maybe dispose of the whitey sooner then later!!! Would be nice to get it out of my driveway!

So yesterday as I was walking out of walmart I almost got ran over. There was already 5-8 people in the crosswalk when I entered and this lady just comes barreling through like she did not have to stop. If one family would not have jumped out of the way, I am sure that she would have hit them. After yelling some very nice things I proceeded to the Jeep, only to see her parking in the next isle. I gave her the nasty look and said WTF. As I was pulling away I noticed that there was open spots right next to her car to allow me to cut through the isle. Needless to say she had a nice thick chewy allergy induced loogie right in the middle of her windshield.

I just think to myself that I am thankful that my kids were not with me... I would probably be in jail if she almost hit one of my kids because she was in that much of a hurry.
