Its pretty sad that we don't have any automotive aftermarket specialty shops in town. You would think a town of this size could support one. I know Minot has Tuff Trucks and I think Bismarck has something too.

I would check with him on pricing first. He might be able to do a better price than BDS does on their website. If you want BDS that is.

Not sure if there is anyone in Bismarck. have not checked in a while. I usual like to do the work myself so i know how things go together and how to fix it when it breaks. I would check online thats usually what I do when I need parts.

I am running a rough country 4 1/2 lift on my xj, it all depends on what you are looking at for a lift, how high you wanna go. zj is usually pretty easy to lift. anything from boosters all around for a 2-3 inch lift, to replacing springs all around. just depends on what you want.

Sweet. Yeah, Im looking at the rough country 4 inch lift for my jeep. It will be a little while before I can think too much about upgrades, but it looks like the most bang for the buck that I've seen so far.

And as a side note, I've got a buddy who is overhauling an 88 or 89 cherokee right now. Hopefully if he gets the interior put back in before we go out, he might join us.

Actually it is an 85 XJ and I just got the new floor pans from FedEx last night! Maybe I will get them in this weekend, we will have to see.

hate to say it, but down by minneapolis mn there are alot of trails, or out west in nd, around the fargo area, it is kind of thin as far as trails. Iron Range Offroad's Home Page check this site out for northern MN, that seems to be a great location for wheeling. still a few hours away from fargo area, but still fun none the less

Middle and western North Dakota is also good for wheeling. There is a club around the rugby area, but i can't remember the name of it. The Eastern part of the state is pretty much swallowed up by farm land, where once you head east it's more hilly.
