I agree, but I would wait a little bit, especially if I just dumped money on superlift, rims and 35s!! If I could I probably would too, but in my case I got my car when I turned 16, and plan on running it into the ground (in a good way) and then moving into a truck or wrangler, or maybe a new wk when this one dies, hopefully well out of college. We'll see. I was just curoius.

Can't believe he did that! My plan is to make my WK the ultimate IFS eventually...

But for now, just got my TSA windshield light mounts in from Crawl Off Road. Hopefully have time to mount them this weekend.

Guess he should've stayed in his lane instead of trying to cut me off.

(don't mind the finger, was still shaking a bit when I took these pictures)
"G D" Parkway traffic, I assume.

Had my drivers mirror knocked off on the Parkway West two months ago.
Glad you are OK. Now you don't need an excuse to get different wheels.

Installed my ebay light bar today and I'm really impressed with the quality of it!! For a little over $120 it was a great deal, I still need to test it at night but it seems super bright already.

Got a great deal on the wrangler and the wife was afraid of driving the WK haha. I had started to get some issues before the Mod SL but once that was on everything decided to act up on me. Started replacing things here and there but then I got a deal I couldn't pass up on the JKU so it was easier to just trade it in. The mechanic at the dealership had a ton of fun driving her though! Came back with a big smile on his face haha l!

I'll be joining you soon on the wrangler transition. My WK is currently for sale and I see either a TJ Rubi or a JK sport in my very near future (next month or so).

The balljoints on the UCA's, front drive shaft, pinion bearing, and my CV shafts would grind when I accelerated. The Mod SL was up there on ny front end which caused all these things to begin to fail on me. I lowered the front end a tad to help with everything and was going to start replacing things here and there but then the JKU came haha. Plus I have always wanted a wrangler so I couldn't resist. Oh and it made the wife happy! Overall I am liking the JKU alot more. A smoother ride plus I can go doorless and topless. Doesn't have all the features of course but I never used most of them anyway.

I see, makes sense. Before I go Mod SL, I'm gonna make sure i have the RCV shafts, drive shafts and gears to hopefully avoid that.

Enjoy the JKU! I've thought about trading for one but there's something about people hating on the WK that makes me want to build it, haha.

Too bad you don't have anything to part out on it.

It's a 20" bar with combo spot and flood, it fits perfectly between my D-ring mounts.

I bought it off of ebay from a Chinese seller, I'm planning on doing a writeup on how to install it. The way the mounts work for this one made it super easy to install, there were already factory holes in the crossmember right there so I didn't even have to drill into anything.
