How to deal with "the wait"?!

I don't know if I work to fast or if the earths moving too slow but man the wait is killing me! I'm 2 days away from ordering my lift and tires but time at work is going by slow! How do I deal with this??

I'm right there with you. I'm less than 2 weeks into a 6-8 week turnaround time for my rear bumper/tire carrier and every email alert I get, I'm hoping it's the shipping notification. It sucks, can only take it 1 day at a time and try to keep your mind occupied with something else. Though, since I'm constantly browsing this site, it makes it that much harder to do.

It sucks!! I've been waiting for this since I got my jeep 4 months ago. Im constantly looking at different jeep parts on QTec and 4wheelparts and it's tempting to get other stuff while I wait

Avoid the temptation to order parts just for the hell of it....What I do is keep telling yourself the more crap you add/bolt on, the heavier/slower the Jeep gets. Don't turn it into a boat anchor, keep it agile. LOL

2wd?

Which model do you have that is 2WD?

I have seen 2WD vehicles with a rear locker and chains walk all over 4WD vehicles. So, a properly equipped 2WD really doesn't need to make any excuses. Besides the old saying was, 4WD just lets you get stuck further from the trailhead and then both ends are stuck.
