With 108 miles on it we drove it for a little bit and I am TOTALY amazed at how smooth and plush the ride is! This makes my 2000 TJ feel like a covered wagon in comparison. Also the new 3.6 motor pulls the 315's (aka 35") tires with no problem. Again AWSOME ride.
For some reason, that whole operation just doesn't look safe!?

Darkfire, is your first name James by chance? I only ask because I showed my boss pics of your Jeep and he swears you're his old neighbor! Lol

Good job, dude. Nice rig. The other day I was cruising Extreme Terrain for Trucklite headlights and recognized your rig on their site showing off/regular/high beams. Cool.
