Newbster here...

Hello.. I guess I'm just introducing myself... I'm actually an avid RC Heli pilot and I bought my 98 4 cyl TJ a few years ago but we leave it at the lake house until this winter when we brought it back to drive it. I just installed a new 4.0 TB today and it made a good difference. My jeep is mostly stock w/ 31s. I'm kinda planning on a new exhaust, intake, maybe 4.88s, 2" lift and limited slip in the rear. Then maybe a winch and I'll be done with it. Im not going to mud with it 'cause I don't like cleaning it, but like it clean. (I expect to take a lot of crap over that statement ) Anyway, I'm enjoying WF.. thanks for some good feedback..

Sorry for being rude and not answering the questions;

Yes, me and moneypit are going to do some trail 'wheeling at our lake house this summer... tons of two tracks.. many of which I snowmobiled and motorcycled as a kid. No pics of helis with jeep, but here's a pic of the jeep right after I had her cleaned up.

Oh.. pics of the helis... take a look at my Gallery for that. This pic is my Hughes 500E with Raptor mechanics. It's a .50 size heli. The girl is Sarah whom I used to work with.

Thanks! I take it you saw my gallery. My family has had it's share of cancer. I'm on round two, but still surviving. It's definately a God thing.
