Installed these rugged ridge mats and pulled the carpet from the front, an antenna X antenna, a new driver side door limiting strap, and a new driver side mirror because I broke the OEM one during my last offroading trip because of the lack of strap. I also have a 2" budget boost that is still in transit that didn't make it in time for Xmas.

Today I drove my daughter through the snow to her fiance's house. I drove through the drifts in their field and then came back home. My Grabbers do well on rock/gravel trails, but not so good in snow and deep mud. Now I know. On the bright side, my wife said that we need to get another set of tires for different terrain I love the way that woman thinks.

Yeah, we got LOTS of snow! I am guessing 6" +, but it is hard to tell because it has also blown around and drifted. Southern Part of Illinois here.

I live in Barrington, IL I'm waiting for my Novak cable shifter to show up and then I need to figure out a way to get me exhaust out of the way for my front driveshaft. I just did a custom TT.

Thanks guys. it is sitting on 35x12.5x15's. it is a rugged ridge long arm 4.5"lift, and 1.5" of body lift as well. I bought the jeep with the lift on it, there are a few things I want to fix or change. But all in all I love it!!

I have a stock 97 i am fixing to sell in my garage as well. just about done with it.

you are welcome to come by anytime I am home if you want. I am running 4.11 gears. I have a locked Dana 44 in the front and a 8.8 in the back. I get about 10 MPG. I do drive it to work every day (45 miles each way) and I love it. she is smoth as silk at 70 mph, a tad noisy, but I love it!!

I have a fun project going on in my garage right now, looks like you are pretty into cars and tools, you would probably like what I am working on (non Jeep).

WOW! 10mpg blows, that would suck to drive 45mi each way. my jeep gets 16.8-17mpg I'm running a D44/9", spool/LSD
I'd like to see that side(non Jeep) project you got going.
