Going fast = breaking things haha

Enjoy the jeep stock, they're amazingly capable in stock form..but I'm guessing it won't be long before the bug sets in and you decided to upgrade

PS: Sorry for the crappy music, the lady-friend doesn't have the same musical tastes as I do

As a side note, I was quite surprised by the variance in people's driving. There were some guys with fully off-road rigs going over obstacles at a snail's pace, while there were other guys ( a lot in TJ's, Yj's, and one badass in a suzuki samurai) who were going over bumps quicker than I could imagine. There were guys with fully lifted F-150's with 35" tires crawling over bumps slowly. I don't know, it was a bit weird. After driving there all day, I don't really see myself needing to lift the jeep anytime soon, as I don't think I'm gonna go much rougher than this.
Sweet jump haha

I don't even own a jeep anymore

You my be right on that. I always tend to modify my motorcycles, but haven't had the bug hit with the jeep yet.

Maybe if I keep going fast I'll break something and find a good reason to upgrade . Even if i change out parts, I'm keeping stock gearing and tires, perfectly off-road capable

Answer the phone here at work (O'reilly) and a guy asks for a radiator hose for a '96 Wrangler. He wouldn't believe me when I said there wasn't a '96. I asked for round or square head lights and he said he'd call back.

If you can't stand behind our troops feel free to stand in front of them!
