But I wont because I like driving it on the road, but I will be getting some good adjustable control arms all around, belly up, DIY gas tank lift and hopefully in the next year or so start the 5.3L V8 swap that I've always wanted
Cool hope it works out. I have a work truck but I pay for it.


It's better to be dead and cool than alive and uncool.
Nothing like a permanent reminder of a temporary feeling. I have a few.
4.0 auto, 8.8 rear with detroit locker, 4.10's and 33x 12.50's

But for the jeep, I think I would personally have more fun with a V8. And it wont need a whole lot of drive-train upgrades to run a 5.3, my trans and axles are good enough to drive easy on it and upgrade if/when things grenade!
My dd is a 2010 F250 w/ intake, exhaust and its chipped. There is something to be said for a 3/4 ton pickup that can roast tires and turn 0-60 times in less than 6 seconds. I surprise a lot of people in that thing

We used to have a '01 Duramax 3500 crew cab long bed dually with just a programmer and exhaust and that alone was pretty fun. Wouldn't smoke tires, well never tried because was weary of blowing the trans, but a huge dually that can move is pretty dang fun too, and very unexpected in traffic!
We now have a '00 Dodge 2500 cummins, which has a fully built trans a bunch of internal motor add on's (not sure what but we bought it off our friend who did all the work and runs a performance/diesel performance shop). The chip we had on it went bad so now its stock tune but when it was working the truck towing a goose neck car hauler with 2 built jeeps on it would accelerate a little faster than it did stock with no load it.
Can't wait to get the new programmer working, get more power and bump it up to around 20-21 MPG!

Yeah, that's another great thing about programmers and no restrictive exhaust. If I am cruising on the highway it is not uncommon to get 21-22 mpg at any given time. Pretty sad when a truck twice the size and weight of the jeep with twice the power gets twice the gas mileage.

Get outta here you fake Jeep mini minivan soccer mom street queen! Just kidding of course. All are welcome. No (real) flaming unless you are rolling 20's and LoPro's (and I don't mean the UCF bracket).

Don't knock the chrome. If done tastefully it can look pretty good. I chromed out my Comanche and I think it looks pretty good.
