I use a maxpedition bag. The pistol hides in a zippered compartment closest to your hip. I can fit my G35 in there no problem. I carry to work in it with no one the wiser. I just explain my murse because of my jeep and not trusting stuff to be left inside it.

When one pays attention to properly setting bump stops, and correctly adjusting control arms you'd be amazed at what it (short arm) can do within intended means. Unfortunately, internet lore and the all the cool guys using the terms "long-arm" has become norm, and many will buy into it.
Brand? Also why not long arm? I have heard that offroad they don't really offer that much benefit, but onroad they are more stable. I don't really care much either way(long or short) , I am just curious for if/when I end up having to replace my suspension.

What does your rig have? Long arm or Short arm? I thought I read that you had a custom LA setup

This looks pretty close to what I'm looking for. Anywhere local selling them? I would like to see one in person before buying.

So, not all is well with the Jeep. Warm startup is almost impossible. I hope it's just the plugs that are fouled....

Garza has the same basic suspension as the Currie/Savvy EMC rig.

I got mine from Amazon. I haven't seen them local anywhere, but I don't frequent the gun shops too often. There is too much temptation to spend all my money there.

IMHO, the best most complete bolt on suspension" kit" on the market is the Currie 4", this also entails the Currie steering set-up, trac-bars, and anti-rocks. I or the owner lol im sure will be happy to show anyone here the blue LJ. It's the perfect balance of simple but fully functional. Currie actually has some options for springs many don't know about.

My Jeep is neither long or short arm. I use 28" lowers and if it was to be labeled I would call it a mid-arm. Mine is fully custom because of what I demand of my Jeep. I ran a pieced together short arm set-up for 3+years, I simply outgrew it's capabilities. To get a little technical I have a 4-link rear, 3-link front with trac-bar. I have 15" of travel front and rear. My steering is a custom design with absolutely zero bumpsteer through out the full range of travel......most wont notice the detail in my Jeep unless you look close and understand the what and why. My goal was to stay sleeper, but built to handle anything I could throw at it. MOST important it had to handle great on the street, and be capable of sustained highway speeds, wheel the hardest trails, and get me home.

Anyone here ever use one of the Freon top up cans for your AC? Any negatives? My AC is blowing cool but not cold, cold like it was last year.

They are a good temp fix to improve cooling, but it will not get it back to new. To do it right you need to have a vacuum on the system then install the freon. If you keep on installing the cans you can over pressurize the system fast.

That makes sense. So a one shot deal to get me through basically.

Maxpedition makes alot of nice suff that should fit your needs.

Check our local laws though, some places don't consider a back pack a legal way to conceal carry.
