Alrighty. Sounds like a deal. I can't wait to get out there next time and do it myself! Someone offered their '08 JKU Sahara edition with a 8000lbs warn winch, 5 speed manual tranny, and a few other upgrades in trade for my CJ7. I turned down but ill see Sunday if I regret it.

If you friend me on Facebook, I have pics up there. None of work I've done but just "pretty" shots of it. It sure as hell ain't a pavement princess. Kinda regretting not trading but I love my CJ and it'll do just as good offroad when I'm done with it.

You're nuts, I would've traded that in a hearbeat lol but then again I've never been a CJ kind of guy

And yea, I thought I'd be worried riding in his JKU but he knows what he's doing and it was a blast Made me really want to drive my Pat to a dealership and trade it in already haha

Yeah I'm kinds regretting it but I know I'd regret trading it to. It's never too late to buy a CJ!

I'm not worried about riding out, I just feel weird because I'm leaving my jeep and I'm not used to being shotgun, I'm usually the driver. I'm still excited though. Kenny, are you coming on Sunday?

No sadly. One round of beating on my Patriot was good enough for me to figure out that I need tires asap (working on that) and then sliders and a lift. Once I get tires I may go again but I'd rather not go out there again until I'm lifted haha

Before the 3rd, I was thinking 1.) Sliders 2.) Lift 3.) Tires but after that experience I'm getting tires first because the goodyear wrangler SRAs sucked arse going up those hills and I don't wanna embarass myself again

What ones do you have? Like specifically. There's the Wrangler AT/S, SRAs (crap tires, they suck), Silent Armor, and Authority Tire (the Walmart ones that aren't bad actually). Also the Duratracs but obviously those are like the primo tires.

*Edit: also theres the Wrangler Radials that I don't know much about but they don't look like they'd be very good offroad.

Hmmm yea you may have some issues then on those trails. I know my SRAs look similar to those and they SUCKED going up hills and such.

What would be recommended by you? I want to go down to 28" or 30", mud terrains, good wear and great traction.

Everyone loves the Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs or BFGoodrich AT KM2s but me, personally, I am probably going to go with 225/75/R16 Hankook Dynapro ATMs for my needs cause I don't see mud that often.
