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?

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.
