GrouchyTim but not actually Grouchy. I guess I signed up here a half a year ago and forgot but I'm back so let's get it on.

I have an '88 YJ with a few mods to say the least. It's a 2.5L rolling on 35" MTZ's and beadlocks (not sims) on an XJ front axle and 8.8 rear geared to 4.88. I did the SOA lift and am about to put on hydro assist steering with the WJ high steer knuckles. Full cage is in finally and a custom aluminum diamond plate storage area in the back. Racing seats with 5 point harnesses.

I wheel hard, I play hard, and I wrench constantly weither it's on my junk or someone else, I don't care as long as I'm active. I like to fab and weld my own stuff and have just about every tool one could ask for. Also I have a buddy with a CNC plasma table so I'm never short of ideas for that thing. If any of you are in the Hampton Roads VA area post up here and let me know you exist. We can get together and wheel or fix whatever. (I hate transmissions though so lets skip that part)

Thanks for the warm welcomes everyone. LOL. I'll keep in mind how hard I wrench on people's junk. I am expecting about 8-9 Jeeps in my front yard and garage today for that very purpose though. I have more tools than most people so I don't mind sharing the wealth. Anyway. You all have an awesome day and I'm going to go wrench on some junk.
