I came home and got the Jeep an alignment today! I went to Firestone and after an inspection, some convincing, and my word that I wouldn't go back in every month for an alignment they sold me the Lifetime Alignment Now it feels great! The steering is very responsive and doesn't feel as strained as it used to. I can't wait to get out and feel this thing on the trail. But that is going to have to wait for another week or so. I leave again on thurs Speaking of which, anyone near Kingsville, TX?

I love having the life time alignment. Every six months I take it in to have it checked and the tires rotated.

Yes I am glad they gave it to me. The guy at the desk wasn't too sure, but the main tech (had a nice Bronco in the parking lot) said it was fine. He was loving the Jeep and said he had never seen anything like it.

You're not driving up to Dallas to see your mom, are you? You'll drive within a mile or so of my house if you are.

That's because there's nothing else like it...

The front one? No I still have it. I am considering cutting it and using the front half because it will still bolt on, or just selling it and making a full skid that will go from the SL bracket up the the bottom of the bumper (fairlead).
