i have seen the XJs do the Jeepspeed racing this is the first time I have seen a TJ running like that. what have you done to your jeep diffent from what a rock krawlers or a mud buggy would have gone in the built? dont know if my question makes any sense. i'm curious cause i like this! wish we have some areas to run and explore like that out here in the east coast.

the biggest difference is shock tuning, im running fox 2.0 adjustables. and also bilstein air bumps. the rest is mostly over building it to make it last.


trusses, gussets, limit straps, suspension seats, 5 point harnesses.... been a long build but she is coming along nicely.

no shes a garage queen, i could daily drive it but thankfully have a company vehicle. she has a short are RE 3.5, no stretch shes plenty fast as she sits for my budget. top sustained speed in the dirt has been low 70s can sustain 35 to 60 pending on terrain.
