Here's mine. Just bought it 3 weeks ago. Needs more lift, but it's okay for the time being

First off...im jealous ...you found an lj rubi. You should start playing the lottery.
Second...looks like you have about a 2" suspension, throw on a body lift for about $150 and you'll be in business.
Third...did i already say i was jealous? Sweet lj. Enjoy!

Oh...and it looks like the previous owner ganked your fog lights.

I have 4.10's w/the 6-speed. It's about perfect. I know guys have done 3.73's, but that wouldn't cut it for me and my need for acceleration (at least, what acceleration a Jeep can provide)

Acceleration isn't the problem, its the crappy wind. 75 miles in 3rd during a tropical storm = pita gas mileage. I run 373's. I will be going w/ 456 when i regear in the spring. Plus the shift points are all jacked up. But still does fine off road.

I should add i have an auto. I believe 6th on a manual isn't as deep as 4th in an auto, and i hear they handle the 373s better.

Everyone wants a lifted jeep, cool, I've lifted most of mine. But, a lifted jeep without lockers is just a tall jeep.
A lifted jeep looks cool
A jeep with lockers IS cool

Sorry guys, just my opinion, BUT, anyone with an automatic jeep should just let their wives drive........ or their mothers

Autos are the preferred choice for rock crawling though like mentioned.

No wife here, i do let the fiance drive it though. my previous 2 jeeps were manual. When you start commuting 3.5 hours on average per day in stop and go traffic, then i will have an iota of respect for your comment.
By the way...how's bliss?
