I almost rolled my jeep because one of his front springs collapsed, bent his control arms, twisted rear leaves on their first run.. blah diddy blah. The stuff was total crap.

And the stuff I replaced it with at much greater cost is still fine, so it ain't me...

I finally got around to cleaning the undercarriage of the Jeep. Looks brand new. Amazing what happens when you finally stop being lazy.

Thanks 98TJSport, I tried to post with the pics like that and it looked good when I did the preview, but came up the other way when I submitted. I seem to always have that problem. The fact that I'm electronically challenged does't help.

it has nothing to do with being electronically challenged...

if you read the sticky's, you'll find out you have to be a member for 30 days AND have 50 technical posts for the pics to show up...until then, they'll just be a link...

if you becoming a supporting member, you can upload pics directly...

This is what I did over the past weekend...

Got the Winch and Winch Plate from Offroad Overstock. Biff was very good to deal with, answered questions, and he got it all to me within four days of my ordering... Now I just need to go get me some action shots.

I put a very large deposit on an RE 5.5 lift kit, SYE kit, drive shaft and shocks today.

"excited" would be an understatement as I am realizing a childhood dream!
