If only they flattened the belly out more on the CJ! I would love to try some obstacles I've seen the TJs and JKs go on, but I hi-center so easily... Need to get that D300 rotated up and new skid built really soon...

The CJ may not be flat, but its snag free!
My sisters TJ's skidplate has lips on the front and back that curl down... They are just screeming to snag rocks, trees, ledges and whatever else to get hung on.

I'd like to clock my dana 300 flat but i read you have to cut the floorpan! No thanks... Not on my antique! I'll just tuck the skid closer to the drive train

When the wife reminds you daily about the amount of time that the "quick fix" is taking. "I told to just write the mileage down." Me: Whatever, go order me this please.NOW.

Here's a buddy of mine in his JK, and me playing on a small rock. We are both running 35" tires.

I was having carb troubles that day, so it was hard for me to keep it running.
It still ran well enough to strap him off of the rock though.

.....when every time you smell something burning while you are driving down the road, you get nervous thinking that it is your Jeep.
You finally breathe a sigh of relief, and quit checking your rearview mirrors, when you pass the house that is burning the garbage.

When you sit at your desk, staring out of the window, cheesed off that the storm cell that showed an 80% chance of severe storms this morning has gone around you and now the sun is shining and you're stuck driving the grocery-getter.

Laaaame.

Yep, that was yesterday. Only difference is I did drive the CJ (like every normal day) but I had the top and doors on... Wasn't worth taking it just to drive home, supposed to rain all weekend again

On Jeepers Jamboree over Rubicon Trail last w/e and a couple younger wheelers come over and ask why I would bother to add a CJ front clip to an Unlimited. Got a good chuckle from that-- then explained its a 1981 CJ8. Priceless!

LOL

When you make a turn and your squeegee falls out of the Jeep since you either have no doors/top or falls through the floor.

When your "project" is rated 2 wrenches and 3 hours in the parts catalogue and actually takes all day and requires the purchase of a new bench grinder just to complete it!

Oh well, you can never have too many tools!
