Nice work Unlimited! We'll deffinatly need a full review once you get some good run time on them.

I started my TJ up, brushed off the new snow and drover her into town for some PB&J supplies.

I put on my long-johns and took the Jeep to Paragon. Ran some lower trails on the park (hadn't been in that area before) and ended up on Rattler & Rattler's Tail....until we had an upper control arm break (not mine )


While out yesterday: finalized the deal on a rear Dana 44 w/lockers

Vacuumed the inside, shined the dash, replaced my busted speaker, and put an air freshener in it.

Put on a Jeeperman Rear w/tire carrier. I'm looking for the right soft-top. Interested in the Viking, but waiting for some reviews.

I found out what 42s will look like. This is at full compression in the front. Add another 6" for ride height.



What can I say? I like photoshop

I put on the Bestop sliders. I've found out that the flaps and cold water = wet cold lap. Will see how well they work out tomorrow on the ride to work.

finally stopped being lazy and painted my flares today. it is beautiful sunny day in PHX, so i figured it was the perfect day.

here's the before and after.

note: i didn't paint over my marker lights. i just didn't pull the tape off them yet.

Where your fenders just sun faded? Next time try getting some "Mothers: Back to Black Polish", its made for plastic trim pieces, rubber, or whatever on a car that is black. Works pretty damn good. Used it on my moms '99 XJ's front bumper, looks 100% better now.

Mounted up two tow hooks on the front. Now I'm just hoping I'll never need them!

Kyle, the fenders look good!

i have been using it for the last year ... its fine if you want to reapply it evey month, but the mud, rain, salt, and snow here eats it up in about a week.

for more timid climates, though, it would work well. definitely not for everyone, though.

I would have put more in there but I guess there's a "ten flip offs per post" limit. I had to delete seven of them.

dont listen to them scout!

front tow hooks are the best investment i have made....its hard to pull out Fords, Toyotas, and GMs if you dont have a tow hook!!

all except you shouldn't pull from the front. You should always pull centered from the rear if you have the preference.
