It is easier for my family to give me 4WP gift cards for Xmas/Birthday that I can accumulate and use. It's a lunchbox locker, I really don't expect it to not do what it is supposed to do.


Can you afford the car? Have I provided you all the information you need on the car? Do you like the car? Then buy the car.

I would spend the money on a Be cool or flexalite but I have bigger plans for the engine bay eventually and I will upgrade then.

Built not bought.

I think if it warms up, I'm going to paint mine.

I painted mine with key on fusion after I scuffed them with a scotch Brite pad and it has held up great

My Chinese counterfeit Old Man Emu sticker arrived to join my small but growing cluster of up upgrade stickers.



The funny thing, other than there being a counterfeit OME sticker, is that rather than the sticker being the usual screen print, this one is built up out of four layers of plastic film (reflective yellow, white, red, & black) and each layer appears to have been hand cut. It's really quite charming and wonderful. I enjoy bizarre things like this and was excited that this is what what I ended up getting. Thankfully my springs and shocks are the real deal!

Spent the last 2 1/2 days playing in our winter wonderland here in Indiana. It has been the first time since I purchased my (new to me and nearly all original) 97 TJ in late December, that I really got to check her out. DEEP snow drifts and uncut trails. Even had to put her in low and let her walk out of a drift or 2. Two nights ago I blazed some trails(really 2 lane highways blown over to 1/2 lane highways and unplowed county roads) in blizzard like conditions. Except for the fact that my wipers would freeze over with snow and ice(had to stop a few times and clean them off) she ROCKED it. Can not wait for spring and starting my build!!!

I have yet to install the rears on mine. With just the fronts in, it really shows you how much the *** end bounces over stuff.

I see you're from G'boro. Jump over here if you want.
