What I did today; Tried to eye up what size lift is on this jeep..... Got it from my uncle and i've heard everything from 3 inch suspension and 3 inch body to a more reasonable 2.5inch body lift. Those are 33inch tires if that helps. Anyone have any ideas?
EDIT: 2.5 inch suspension. Not Body

Pretty terrible picture, but I had a friend make some 2" white Jeep decals for the center caps on my wheels.

Has anyone tried the $69.00 chip that's supposed to increase mileage and HP that they have advertised in this forum?

No, because the only way to get better mpg from ur Jeep is to not drive it....ha...jk.

But seriously, no I haven't tried it.

Replaced rear pinion seal. Well my dad did. I helped him for 10 mins, left for a haircut and was gone for 20 mins and came back and everything was cleaned up! Didn't take long at all. I was surprised in his work

No yellow, only saw the blue. That would be cool if they had colors to choose from.

One thing that everyone forgets is that you need to heat up the new seal a little before you install it otherwise it will leak again

I'm knew this whole jeep/mechanics. What is pb blaster? I'm assuming it's a liquid that comes in a can and it loosens bolts and nuts. I can find it at auto parts store?

Well drove it down the road for the first time since new years when it broke. I didn't go far as the exhuast still needs to be done but i had to see how it went down the road. The driveshaft is squealing so i need to check that out and then get it to the exhuast shop i can see its gonna be interesting to see what they need to do as there is not much room. We will see i guess.

Put a new bumper on the back with a hitch receiver to hold my bike rack.
Took the dog out for a ride with the windows out, smoking a cigar and cranking the stereo.
