Glad it worked out well for you. Anything else need repairs or is all the major work out if the way now?

Well I've done devils peak, potato ridge, Nelson, nv area, angle peak, and tiered canyon. I really want to do a Logandale run but I don't know my way around there. I might be interested next Sunday.

What other trails are out here and who knows Logandale well

thanks YSB, only major thing left is the suspension sag. Minor issues are oil/fluid leaks that need fixing.

I just happen to have an extra AR sitting in my safe right now! May just keep it for the wiffle though! She needs to become proficient with everything and I can make that one "her" rifle! Hands off "my" AR though! Lol

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!

Nice, the wife said that I better get whatever guns that I want before we go overseas. We are both worried if ohbummer gets a second term he will have nothing to lose and will start pushing his real agenda. An AR is going to be one of the first ones I get.

I got a sweet deal on it $400 new. I not to keen on the ar's yet. 2 of my brothers have them. I got a mini 14 instead. It may just be that I don't like being like everyone else. I think my next gun will be a high powered modern rifle. Although I did see a bolt action mossberg shotgun at discount fire arms for $65 today. I might have to buy just because it's cool.

god, it shoots like a dream! Its so soft shooting, and i didnt actually sit down and make sure the zero was perfect, but i was shooting at stuff 200+ yards away and the rifle was right on target (it was stuff that wouldnt react, so i dunno if i hit it, but it looked like i did).

Tested it a lil, then dumped a mag through it, cycled and functioned 100%. so far we are at 90 rounds, trouble free.

Went to a store today and picked up a case of bulk federal XM193 or whatever. $359.00 i guess thats aite. Grabbed another magazine when I was there.




(Note the brass behind my support wrist, not bad for a cell phone pic!)








It was like 105 out there, ugh. But the jeep made the drive in both directions without a single hiccup, it didnt surge or anything, it's running GREAT even in the crazy heat!

You'll come around, look at me. I was SUPER anti-AR but then got bored and figured "what can be bad about a gun I can literally build? that sounds fun...oh here's some money" flash forward 2 weeks and boom. you get my post above.

I hate it...because its awesome. Now my poor M1A is going to just sit in the closet.

Hey guys, new to thread and in process of upgrading my YJ. Need some local help and advice. I'll be lifting my jeep probably a 4" or maybe a 3.5" bds. I have stock TJ moabs with 245s on now but may do 33's in the future. Wasn't planning on regearing but now considering 4.88's based on what others are saying about the difference . I've got an 88 with the 2.5 and everything stock. I also have a set of 19lb injectors I found cheap. Can I use them in my older tbi 2.5? I also wanted to look into upgrading my 15 gallon tank to a 20, If anyone has time you can pm me and maybe we can talk in person. I live by Aliante and work on the strip, thanks!!

1988 YJ 2.5, again!
