Not all stock champ. And I have only owned it 4 a couple months. I love how you dodge ( pun) my comments. In all seriousness mine will be a lot princess, it will get washed and dried! . And I when I leave 4 work in the morning ill power my windows up and down just for you. And ill enjoy my heat before I even get off my street. Anyway you look at it a have 20 years of evolution on my side. Enjoy the 90s.

You got it Feb 13th right? Nw Jeep owner. If you have done anything to it you need to update your profile there champ. Worst thing about stock JK-anythings is when they hit the mud all I can smell is burning brakes from that damn traction control. Meanwhile you are losing about half your power because of it. Maybe when your JKU dies you can get one of those new beautiful Cherokees. I think they might fit even more soccer balls!

I bet if GM was dumb enough to ever do a 4 door Corvette you would be the guy driving it off the lot gloating about how awesome it is to be able to fit groceries in the backseat. I bet you would even tell the guys with the older Corvettes they built themselves how much their backseats suck.

Seems like some people are getting bent outta shape for no reason. A jeep is a jeep.. 2012 or 1994 they are both great. I own a 93 and love it. But honestly there have been many many times I wish I owned a vehicle that wasn't 20 years old.

Why buy a Jeep, then keep it on the road?

The lack of intelligence amazes me.

I'll take my YJ any day over the car that the JK is. Lot less components to fail too.

I wonder when exactly he will be "leaving". Since he's still here.

----------

Back to more important YJ matters.

Began to systematically prepare my To Do list for my Jeep. The teardown is close..

Potentially. I would shoot holes in his rebuttals, but I don't waste my time with the silly curly fry sprung Heaps.

Was thinknig about removing my center counsel just for some extra room. I did hear about a lock box that fits under the seat. Have you heard about any thing like that? Any info would be great.

Iv heard of it, but i needed the consul. To keep my wallet and cash it, little stuff. Um Ill look around to see what i can find for you. I have the 8inch tuffy and it fight great, it fills in the hole space in between the seats but nothing crazy. comfortable fit and the leather cushion on top is great. Thing might be able to stop a bullet!

Just ordered my new Dick Cepek Crusher 33's about 5 min ago. Bye bye all Terrains! Now it will be even easier to pull out the JK's that try to keep up offroad.

I've had my jeep about a week and installed bestop bikini top and rugged ridge center console. It came out great. But I have been working on damn seat belt bolts for 3 days. After I get that done next comes dash lights and change shift knob.

The crushers are AWESOME...! You could send your old tires to dub... They would hold the dry pavement real well after being broken in so well...

Hate me if you will, couldn't resist...

noticed a leak on the driveway and looked under to find this:


so i replaced the rear pinion seal, pretty straight forward job. just a little pain getting the old one out. one tip is have the new seal on hand to see how it goes in there, this will help getting it out.

old seal:


old seal(wonderfully destroyed in removal process) next to new one:



installed and cleaned:


also today i siliconed the shit out of my windshield and hinges, if anymore water gets in now i quit.
