I haven't heard it once. You could be mistaking my electric fan. Which video did you hear it in?

In that last one, looks like you needed to let a little more air out of the tires.

The second to last is my favorite though, really shows how good that break over angle is.

You need to know the Notch to understand what is going on. Front tires are at 8psi. Rear = 6psi. I'm sure they are fine

This is coming down the notch the other way. See the hole on the left side of this picture??? Doesn't look it in this pic but that is about a 3ft hole you have to climb. It is pretty fun.

at the end of the bottom movie seems like when the rig gets closer to the camera the hissing noise increases. From few other movies i've seen on youtube the hissing noise is caused by the hydraulic pump and seems similar to the noise on the movie but yet again it blends in with the hissing of the environment so..

oooh. That sound is actually the seals surrounding the shafts on my shocks. Took me awhile to figure that out. You can really hear it while driving.

Got my 33 MT's on there this AM and I think I may have put about 100 miles on it just cruisin round town and getting used to them. I have to say, even going from 31's, I can't detect any power loss. It actually feels a little more peppy (I know it must be my imagination). Absolutely love 'em - Been wanting them for a while but never thought I'd be this pumped about 'em!

Wow, this sorry ass excuse for a mod is pretty embarrassing when on the same page and Mr. C! Damn.

Replaced the cracked exhaust manifold in my '97. Bought the part for $80(shipped) on ebay, and had an independent mechanic put it in for $75. Took him 3 1/2 hours. It sounds much better when I accelerate.

75 bucks to install... thats a steal. Usually people charge more than that per hour and you got it all done for that much.

yeah, we agreed on the phone for $75 because he thought it would take half an our, about an hour into it he realized it would be a while before he was done and he admitted he would have charged more if he knew it would be this difficult. But he said since we agreed on an initial price he kept his word at $75. I felt kind of bad because I knew it would take him at least a couple hours. I love craigslist

Well we went out for a test run this weekend in Northern Arizona. I had a great time as the tow rig worked great and so did the YJ. Everything worked and worked well.

That right rear looks a little soft, or is that how low you go.

This mourning at 4am. Shuved it in 4 LO then in 1st gear reved to about 3500rpm and dropped the clutch. Simply enough lifted the front tires off the ground at a flat surface parking lot. And no i've never launched it at 4 lo before.

4.5". They took exactly 6 weeks from order to arrival. That's pretty quick in the tube fender ordering business.
