Just glad to get back in my jeep!
I very much miss my 4.3L Vortec from my 1990 GMC S15 Sonoma... was just thinking that would be a great engine if I find myself doing a ground up basketcase TJ build sometime in the future...

Anyone care to guess the % of tire pressure lost going from 7500 ft down to 850 feet?

Looks good hoss. Any problems with your rear track bar did you cycle it? Which one do you have? Is that the rust oleum finish?

Always look both ways before crossing the stream.

stock or aftermarket... thinking I want to replace both the fronts, but would like something sportier, maybe with a 5 point harness option... I feel a little vulnerable in the Jeep with just a shoulder / lap combo... keep thinking about the flailing around if it were ever to roll over.

that's probably just the open wheel racer in me though.

Corbeau Baja RS. I will probably do an install and review when they arrive and I install them.

Happy birthday to my Jeep. My dad bought it the Saturday before Easter Sunday in 1998. 16 years old and 153k miles later
Back when Dad drove it:

As it is now:

Rain rain go far far away!

It's better to be dead and cool than alive and uncool.
Nothing like a permanent reminder of a temporary feeling. I have a few.
