I just moved out of town yesterday.

I will back in town sometime in mid october though. We should work something out then.
The only trail I know of that is legal is Summit Lawn. I will send you a PM a little later with details.

If it rolls, floats, flies or shoots, runs on gasoline or gunpowder, goes fast or shoots a big bullet and makes lots of noise, thus producing torque and recoil its cool.

where did you move to? drove to work and just got home. it started pouring and hailing while at work and the jeep didnt leak to bad. just had a nice puddle in my cup holder. windshield leaks. thats what i miss about my mustang, it never leaked.

fender trim

since my fenders were so dented up from not having bumpstops i just trimmed the &%$# out of them to get rid of the dents and now i dont gotta worry as much about bumpstops...if it happens again the fenders are just coming off

So many people to thank here's a start to the list
Spidertrax, Yukon, rustys, warn, branik, PSC, advance adapters, Bad wheels, interco, essentially off-road. And many more

Most of all thanks too Ian Johnson and the xtreme off-road crew for all their work, and 4 wheel to heal for their part in it too.

What you guys think, 1" sold, Currie is 1.25" but for 400 bucks + shipping i don't think so. $178 shipped sounds pretty good. I haven't heard anything bad about this setup.
Ordered

Ugh! The drop brackets didn't work. It seems my rig isn't lifted enough? In order to get my arms to fit I have to push the axle way to far forward. So I'm taking them off and just installing the adj lowers and centering the axle. God I hate when things don't work.

I figured 2 Jeeps was a little much for me at this time.... plus the MJ was taking all my money and the XJ doesn't like it lol.

Drop brackets will make for better control arm angles and thus smoother ride, but unless you're lifted quite a bit you'd need shorter LCA's.
Merely confirmation of what you've already realized, sorry.
