yea, well im pretty much set on gettin some 31 retreads, not 33's since i dont want to regear and lose all that power since its my DD. and for rims im pretty set on Cragar Soft 8's but i also like the look of Moabs

Hey Bob and Tim, i was debating on getting an aussie for my yj and was wondering if it would be better to get it for my rear 44 or my front 30? Also, how hard would it be to install? And do you know of any places that sell them for cheap?

Just let me get my hands on the guys that decided to install torx bolts on JEEPS!

could have asked me lol i would lock the front first it seems to help more and I prefer having a selectable in the rear as for install its super easy I had never really done any mechanical work outside of thermostats and maintence and when i did my front end overhaul i decided to try it and it was simple you could totally do it

well because that will be a huge deciding factor in what width you want to run if your gonna do tons of mud which i wouldn't recomend for several reasons you want a skinny tall tire so you want a 9.50-10.50 if you doing rocks you want a nice wide tire like a 12.50+

I dont recomend mud because it destroys everything, its a pain to clean, there is always a risk of hitting a deep one and hydrolocking the engine or some crap, it will break down all your gaskets around your tie rods and crap and allow dirt to get in the ends eventually causing your tie rod ends to fail and i have several more reasons with all that said i avoid mud and deep water if at all possible

lets just say prairie city was an eye opener kinda. since i ride dirtbikes i have been to prairie city multiple times, and they are known for their mud. ITS IMPOSSIBLE TO GET OFF. it take me hours to clean my bike. anyway, when we showed up in the jeep, i told myself no mud today cause i know that PC mud is a *****. but at the end of the day we found a decent size mud pit. and both my friends went through it, and it looked like fun so i did it once, twice,3,4,5,6,7 times. when i got home and when i was cleaning it i told myself im never gna do it again. EVER.... so ill stick to rocks. but wouldnt wider tires give me bad gas mileage

i think we should do a project day i know the san diego jeepers do them and they sound like a ton of fun so basicly what we would do is pick the persons house with the most space and tools and then everyone else would bring what tools they have and what they want to to there jeeps then we all show up early like 9 am stay through the day however long it takes to do the projects and then we all go back home there just fun weekend gatherings and you can get a ton of stuff knocked out so i think after we do this run we should set one up what do you guys think


Although the lift i dont know if we could do in one day i guess we could but i dont know so that we would still probably do over a weekend connor
