I can attest to this, as I've met him on the road, and was much more concerned about waving than paying attention to where I was driving.

BUT,... I'm pretty sure between Sarge being such an eye catcher, and Ivy requiring Sunglasses to avoid blindness, it was pretty easy to notice and avoid the two of us waving out the top of the Jeeps like little kids at one another.

That thing is so cool looking... Would be great here in So Cal in the beach communities where all the tourists congregate during summer... they'd think it was an official US Military combat vehicle. Nice job!!!!

I'm putting a 2.5" Rock Krawler lift on it Wednesday and plan on doing some rock crawling (pun intended) this Saturday.
I'll post pics when I get the lift on.

I just had my lift installed and I am one Happy Camper!


I want to say a thanks to Jon and Murray for their mussels and experience. Also a special thanks to Jon for the use of his facilities.

Looking at the pictures, the lift is subtle but the change in ride is anything but. Since I bought my rig used and with a spacer lift, I never had a chance to drive it stock. After the lift, I seem to float down the road and can see how stiff the Jeep was.

Here are the before (with the 1.75" spacer lift) and after (with the 2.5" RK lift)

Okay, it comes out to 40.5" in the front and 40" in the back. I know it looks like it should be allot more but I guess it's just the way the fenders are made. I also check it against my rubi rails and they are 21.5" all the way down.

Nice pics! and nice Jeep!

You sure don't see anyone around here at this time of year with their top off... much less no doors =)

Looks like a nice place to own a Wrangler. Look like a nice Wrangler to own.
