Just installed the AEV procal yesterday, I can really notice a difference in the shifting points on the freeway! Alot less guessing for gears and its nice having a working speedo now haha. Well worth the money IMO

Picked up a used bestop trektop off craigslist today! Guy was cool and he helped me put it on too, very pleased with it. Couldnt beat the price either! Might keep the hardtop for winters, I dont know yet.

Do winches have a switch like that or is it just a remote.

i know a certain forum some place somewhere that has a writeup on converting the controller from your winch to a wired in and out switch inside your jeep.....LMK if your interested



did that make any of you hungry for "in and out" burger?

thats what she said......

Good! Haha, I build as fast as I can. Not very patient haha

I have officially decided to save up for a ripp supercharger. Took the jeep on a 8 hour road trip and ran into some hills and my god, 50mph up hills.. Really? I dont want to get rid of the jeep for the 3.6 so I decided this is a smarter option lol.
