Where you the guy looking to check on that game lands roads?
if so , whens that happening?
I want to ad a tow point to the front of the tj , havent needed one yet but i'm getting almost stuck too many times lately.
I want to put a locker up front.
want to ad a tiny lift.
a winch maybe but i've noticed that so many times when i've almost been stuck there hasnt been a dam thing to hook onto anyhow.
looking at maybe that ford 8.8 rear end swap but no hurry for that hopefully.
and thats about all really.
31 tires once i wear the 30's down some more.

Yeah man, whenever my jeep is back roadworthy. If I were u I would go with the front locker first. U won't believe the difference it'll make for u, u won't b getting stuck like u r now. It never hurts to have a winch tho but if u wheel with a buddy it's not a necessity. When u need it 8.8 hit up Johnny's upullit up mill run, there's prob 15 or more up there. There's dead explorers everywhere tho...if u need a tow point or nething like that welded on the front let me no as long as I'm not under my jeep I'm willing to help usually.

The locker will be first. I just hate taking it off the road for a bit when getting it done.
I don't work real fast esp in the cold.
The down time when I was getting the frame welded was depressing.
I have someone to do the welding for a tow point but have not found anything to weld on yet and not real sure where/how I want to locate it.
I have a winch bumper and thinking do I weld it onto the bumper in front of the frame but I don't think that's going to make me happy.

Half tempted to toss a set of tire chains in the back of it to after some crp ran into this winter.

Also I have a desire to pick up an xj also ....... as a recovery vehicle of course .... thats what I'm telling myself anyhow.

I'd like for a jeeper with alot of miles under their belt to take a look at my rig and answer some questions some time.

Matter of fact I think i'm going tomorrow to another spot to look over if anyone is interested. it'll be another 9:30am take off. Will check back later tonite and in the morning for any interested or Ch. 19 will be on and not going far away

Yea he was probably texting me. Im pretty sure I passed you going up the gap road right after that. If you ever get a chance to wheel on the weekends there's a chance one or both of us would be in

I actually passed 3 wranglers before hitting the top of the mountain after I took the pic. Every one of them was heading in his direction , I thought a meeting may have been going on or something. The last wrangler to pass me had a jerry can where the spare tire shouldve been.
