Really sorry to hear about your girlfriend. We all understand THAT sensation! I don't know that you ever get too old "for this feeling", but I think sinking yourself in your Jeep was the right thing to do. Congrats on the great report. Keep the pics coming with the body armor.

But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!

Yeah, I dont like to feel it, it sucks, it sucks even worse when you heard they have already been with another person, and then your left standing there thinking, only thing I have done is get my jeep running. O'wells, my time will be here soon enough, all I gotta do is get one in that passenger seat, and its all down hill from there. hehe

Took this with my Phone, figured you would like to see it up close and actually where it was driven. This jeep is never going to be washed. OR atleast till I go to paint it, then after that it wont be washed again.

Can you see these photos? Let me know

Getting ready to go trail and rock crawling


Pretty bad hill, and it just rained, so you can just imagine the problems already


Almost over


Oh crap! Not quite, sliding around scary


Pucker factor 10! Driver side tire off the ground, gas was leaking out of my gas cap, and it wasnt going anywhere, just slipping. Actually my jeep died shortly after, and the starter refused to engage. So I was left rolling down the hill backwards. My brakes were not effective because it almost flipped me over backwards, so I was left going down this hill at like 20mph. It was bad!

Yeah, front end Limited slip wasnt working 100% for some reason, might need some more friction modifier. I liked the 35x13.50 tires on it better as well, as to it gave it more stability and some weight. Them little 32x11.50 tires feel tipsy. I need power steering tho to continue to use the 13.50's :'(. Plus that little 258 has a hard time accelerating with them 13.50's.

The tires on it in the pictures above are BFG mud terrains, and I dont think they are anywhere close to 11.5" wide, my 31x10.50s on my CJ7 look the same.
