I'm not far from Cinnaminson and I'm always in that area...I frequent the pines.

Jeep looks good, hopefully there was an axle swap done? Those look like 35s?

I'm somewhat familiar with mount laurel, I play hockey at The Igloo. There's nothing ever going on in my town, I have an 01 F150 SuperCrew as well so i head to the pines a bit.

The previous owner reinforced the axles, but they're still the Dana 30 Front, 35 rear. he installed lockers as well, and he re-did the gearing to 4.56 to compensate for the 35's

Two of my friends play in an adult hockey league up there.


Dude be careful, even if its the super35 kit locked is tough on that d35. Mine didnt last two long with 35s unlocked, but I beat on it. Great looking jeep tho, some similarities to mine.

Ok, not what I did, but what I'm planning, I have the stock stereo system in my jeep, not looking to upgrade because half the time I run no top or doors and don't want a reason for the jeep to be vandalized. That aside, I need a way to mount my phone somewhere were I can see it and reach it to use as my sat nav, and music player(through a cassette adapter). Run the cassette adapter/phone charger cables through the interior and show as little of the cable as possible.
Anyone have ideas? What do you guys use?

Up in Brookings Sd, where i go to school, The news said we received 15 inches of snow, so of course i took out the jeep to have some fun. My friends and I got it stuck...

Perfect chance to use my winch! so we hooked it up to F250 super duty, when i went to tighten it up, I just pulled the F250 closer to me, and didn't move an inch.

After some interesting maneuvers i finally manage to get pulled out.

SO i found out my winch can pull a super duty

I plan on slowly introducing it to the pines, first i want to get really good at driving stick so i don't have to run the risk of stalling out if/when my exhaust is underwater. I most likely will look into a D44 swap, seems like it's a bit stronger than the 35.

This weekend I completed a front end alignment using the sophisticated tools below. Then, went of 70k on the odometer driving over to the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, CT to see Dave Matthews Band. Saw 15 - 20 other jeeps from NY, NJ & MA there....almost like a jeep jamboree

Washed it, Clay Bared(?) it, Waxed it, treated the roof and windows. That Bestop stuff for soft tops does bring the black quite nicely!

First thing this morning I added some red and blue lights to the back:


Got me for 12 over and only wrote me for 5 over

Then we got it inside and put a 2" Zone BB and new shocks on it in just 3 hours.
went from this:


to this:


I like it

Tomorrow it goes into the dealer shop for a replacement of the transfer case throw out bearing. It's going bad and need to get it fixed before the end of the month when we go on a road trip to GA.

What does your windshield mean? And what does the red bumper sticker on the front say? And I like the hood decal too.

Bumper sticker:


I've got one on the back that says: "The Founding Fathers would be shooting by now."

Windshield: in "standard type" it is Molon Labe, and this link explains it:
What Does it Mean

And thank you.

I designed it, sent it to Don at Pixeldecals and he did an excellent job turning it into a windshield decal. I cannot say enough good about Pixeldecals.

I just got my first Tj yesterday. I spent the whole night and all day today going through the thing with a fine tooth comb and getting to know my jeep. I dont know why it took me 20 years to get my first wrangler!!!! I love these things!!! Dont get me wrong, I still love my K-5, but the Tj is going to be my new DD(if I can keep it out out of my 5 acres of land that the wife doesnt want torn up).

Did a whole lot of polishing. The top was faded and so were the fender flares. Next is the rims. I hate faded aluminum. I also pulled the back seat and hosed it down in the front yard. pulled the carpets and hit them with some degreaser(i think they are gonna a pressure washing).

This is suction cupped to windshield. I run it across the top of the dash for stability.

Not spectacular, but free. And that's what I did to my TJ today.

sheesh. cut me off a chunk of that, yo
