In the end nothing close - although modern Doppler sure does redefine close. Now you can pinpoint the rotation plus speed/direction and go back to business because it will not pass within 1500 yards. I had the 2m radio tuned into the weather net for Genesee County, busy night for the emergency management teams.

Yeah they can pinpoint them but still set a tornado warning for the entire county. I live really close to the siren and it was going of like every half hour. Made it tough to sleep.

Edit, can't be stock wheels b/c 8 lug. WTF are they?
Stock dodge 1 ton 17" steelies. 6" backspace is to much. New wheels are ordered.
Dana 60s front and rear, 5.38 gears, stock coils, 40" MTRs.

Did you just make longer control arms, or is it some 4-link voodoo?

I will be dropping the tranny on the Rubicon in the next couple days, any tips or insight I should know before doing it?? Everything I have read says that the whole tranny needs to be dropped to replace the throwout bearing.

It's probably easiest. Dropping the transmission is not a big deal on these Jeeps. Taking the shift lever off was the hardest part of removing my AX-5.

Yes - I am a ham, and my son and I recently completed Sky Warn training so we were listening with interest.

I've always had the interest, but never the time to study to get the ticket. I need to do that one of these days.

FYI I will take this as your formal resignation from the "I do stupid crap to my DD on the weekends" club. You had to go and be a 1%er didntcha?
