Get that thing done early Jude & let's RIDE!
haha..we are starting at the crack of dawn so it may happen. The good news is I've got the terrific help from our local install man DJstorm. He's been cranking out lifts on JKs faster than 2012 engine overheats!

I live like 10 mins from Page road and could be down for it this weekend. However I hate mud with a passion, so it depends.

Anyone know how the 3.6 is doing in other Chrysler vehicles so far?

Yeah. I have rode it on my old dirt bike plenty of times, but cleaning mud off that is much easier. That is why I normally go up to Crozet, VA and play in the rocks.

We have a blast there with 32s and front locker on our TJ. The first time I went I wish I had my rocker guards on for. All depends on the group you go with and the lines you pick really. What is your setup?

I've got an electric 1/2" drive you are more than welcome to use. But I'm in kenly/smithfield area, and it is very strong!

Wow; nice work gents, looks great. Contrary to my previous conversations with DJ, I might look at that 2.5" TF lift after all.

I've got 1/2" impact wrench you can use if you want. You got an air compressor? I'm guessing I'm a little late with this response though. I should check the forum more often.

If you still need it let me know. If you don't have impact sockets I can loan you some of those as well.

Still the same, just a lot of over growth on the trees, which meant more scratches.

So what else have you done to your jeep?

Replaced the front portion of my factory skidplate with a Skidrow skidplate that doesn't rub my driveshaft. Can't remember if I had my rocksliders last time I went out or not. I've got some "near death wobble" that hits from time to time so I'm having 4wheel parts check it out Saturday. Something feels "loose" up in the right front. I've always had a little wobble since my lift but after an alignment and tire rotation it got worse.
How about you? Anything new? Did you go to Talladega?

Nothing much, just cut a few holes in my hood




and installed Poison Sypder hood louvers!





Went to the junk yard and got a Ford Explorer roof rack and installed it on the hardtop.





And painted the inside of the hardtop black.




Last race I went to was Bristol in Aug.
