He's a *******. Yeah it maybe fun if your just messing around but having to drive in that crap getting to work sucks. So does having to shovel it and rust over time sucks balls also.

My zj was a blast in the snow. Say what you want about the all time 249 TC, it was great in the snow. General off road not so much.

What's that? Did you say Dana 30? Or was that Dana 35? You're gonna have to speak up...

(btw, it's hard to see but it's sitting on that rock right in front of the track. It also passed the bucket impact testing as well. It's also been driven over by a jeep and a loaded semi truck. I believe it spent some time at a shooting range yesterday as well but I haven't heard if that went thru and/or what the results were yet.)

Hey Khris!!!


The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

I never understood the validity of the extreme destructive testing for a diff-cover......because in all reality if you hit something hard enough with any HD diff cover to reach a failure point, you had better check your housing. This coming from a guy who has cold stopped an entire Jeep at 10mph with the front diff.....trust me, housings will bend, and center sections do break....even on 3/8" thick tubes! BTDT!

Ugh! The hooptie needs lower low! I want it like my old CJ where u just let the clutch out at idle and steer and you forget about the clutch or throttle until you want to stop or go faster. It looks like it's trying to race thru that crap.


Garza,
You aren't our customer base. We sell to mom at the mall with the cool JK that's waiting for her kids to get off school and puts it in 4wd when it's rainy out. They see cool stuff like that and it equates to a sale. You care about what really happens to the diff, normal customers care about what they think it will hold.

It's like this video... Like we discussed earlier, I'll take my cheap HID's a million times over one of these and I doubt I'm going to be drilling thru it, dragging it behind my truck or taking a oxy/acl torch to a light bar... But you know damn well this video equates to sales for them!

I don't care if my lights will survive a nuclear blast though, I just want them to be bright enough to see and well... HID... LOL Those Ultra 4 buggies are too fast for LED in my opinion!

Good stay there, cause you guys don't spend money! If you want to get rich in the offroad industry, sell cosmetic parts! They'll make you richer way faster then long travel kits and big axles. LOL
