Ha, It becomes a curse though!

We have 5 Jeeps in the family 2 TJ's, 1 KJ, 1 XJ, and 1 ZJ, (and not including all my friends Jeeps).

Within the last two weeks or so:
-axle U-jounts , diff. fluids, and brakes on BOTH TJ's
-thermostat and blocked heater core on the KJ
-porous rear differential cover, exhaust system, vacuum leak on the ZJ

Not to mention doing mods on MY Jeep, plus lending a helping hand to friends with their problems!

This was me 2 months ago...

Ended up with new tires, rims, a 3" lift and a new bumper. All for new tires.

When driving down the highway, you can't tell whether it's extra windy out or your steering is just looser than usual.

Since I got mine a couple months ago, I have actually thought that too. I kept thinking....I need a new stabilizer bar and sway bay links...or something! LOL

It's a box from Walmart. It was like $30. The back is sloped. And it fits perfect. I drilled some L brackets into it to keep it in place and from hitting the tailgate

I know the box you're referring too I bought it when I was planing on installing sub but the sub would have been pressed against tailgate no room for flex

My box is angled on the sub side and has about 2-3 inches between the box and the seat

Do you cover it up or just leave as is? Seeing as how it's easily viewed from outside worried about people stealing it ?

Push the box as close to the rear seat as possible. Then I used L brackets to hold it in place from moving forward. I have about 3 inches from the tailgate. Plenty of room to flex

Cause the dirt will run down and make black streaks. It may not be an issue with some people, but those of us who like to keep a clean Jeep, its worth it.

I I tried but can't quite reach the middle on my LJ from the bumper. And I almost fell off when I tried standing on my tires.

To the Florida sun. It is brutal.
