Yeah - I can go a whole day of waving without any back. I still wave no matter what - it's a jeep thing, you know.

s

They don't know about the wave, they don't have cb radios to bullshit on the road with. The valley is a boring place for jeeps.

I'm always on 19 on the road- it's the most active but very few jeep owners have a cb down here. :/

Keep on waving!

I'm still on 3.73s with 33" tires. Looking at doing a swap soon though.

As for cb channels, we should try a different one, 19 is way to noisy due to the traffic. How about 16? 4x4=16

Lol - I like that. I'll be cruising on 16 from time to time and hollar on 16/19 when I see another jeep with an antenna around.

I don't have a cb, but what are you gonna swap? The gears or the tires? How about getting a FlashPaq for better MPG...I'm waiting for one to come out for my 12'

Looking at 4.88 gears.

I don't think a flashpaq is available for my year model but I could be wrong. A coworker put the idea of swapping in a junkyard LS1. Decisions decisions haha

Not at the moment. If I just do gears I'll stick with the 33s since 4.88 is as deep as I can go due to the Dana 30 up front.

I don't know if this has been asked here before but has anyone given any thought to getting a ham radio for their jeep?

The local repeater network has you covered from west of La Joya to at least 20 miles north of access 6 on SPI. That's way more coverage than a CB will get you.

The initial buy-in can be a little expensive depending on what you go with, but I think the benefits outweigh that negative.

I have a ham radio in my jeep. Also have a CB but I hardly have it on...
