I'll figure out the songs. However..I need to think of a decal to put here on BOTH sides of the Jeep. Don't like the gap or the scratches in the gap


and by HERE I mean between the rocker guard and the Door

Evidentlly this is a common issue as well. Did you ever notice the insanely large amount of "friendly fire" that's been going on with the color matched JKUs? What's even better - is most of the people "firing" are in JKUs themselves!!!

I'm not gonna lie...I've waved at a H3 thinking it was a Jeep ...To it's credit, the H3 was lifted and was a decent looking rig(for what it was)

Doing well, thank you, sir. Got a chance to wheel yesterday, and it was sloppy out - fugly - so, naturally, it was a blast. Unfortunately, nothing broke

How have you been? Working tonight, I assume?

Batman had a jeep?! Awesome!

It was probably a mixture of both... I have pretty good suspension on mine and it rides really nice, if I do say so myself. It's A LOT nicer than riding in my J-truck, suspension-wise... And is just about the same as driving around in my buddy's Aspire (Ford's version of the Geo ) I've driven the GF's 2013 Rav4 quite a bit and it handles bumps and what-not just about as good as my YJ does as well just a little more "wavey". *shrugs*

Driving my Dad's JK wasn't much better than driving in my YJ suspension-wise either. It took the bumps just about the same, maybe a little better on the big bumps, but I could feel just about the same amount of disturbance in the road on the sh!tty sections. I did notice that with the bigger bumps my YJ likes to "bounce" more than my Dad's JK which seemed to "ride" over it more but you could still feel everything. It wasn't like it was that much of a difference.

Steering - I can't really say - I lost my power steering with the lift and other modifications... So I have to manhandle my YJ's steering wheel - but I don't care. Been driving it without P/S for 10 years now without any problems. It's not much of a comparison - but my J-truck's power steering is a lot smoother and "easier" to turn than my Dad's JK was...

Acceleration - the JK was POOOOOOOOP compared to my YJ. I KNOW the JK's TOP SPEED is obviously higher - but from what I experienced it would never be able to clear a block faster than my YJ. (Not trying to say these things are race cars - it's just an honest comparison) That's probably the thing I HATED about driving my Dad's JK - pedal response. It felt like you had to almost floor it just to get the d@mn thing rolling and even then the pedal took a lot more pressure to press down than my YJ's pedal.... My YJ revs up just resting your foot on the pedal. I think that's something one would have to get used to though...

EDIT:
***This isn't necessarily a "who's better" model debate thing... I'm just trying to give honest comparisons between the two WRANGLER models I've driven. Never driven a TJ. Only driven ONE CJ and it was a "farm Jeep" that was pretty much on it's last leg - so I don't count it. My YJ is the only YJ I've driven and my Dad's JK is the only JK I've driven.***

Got a few pictures, hopefully i can get into contact with this other guy that was taking video, he said i had an impressive hill climb.

There was a rock ledge at the top of said hill, and he and the other guys in the group were impressed when i made it up and over that ledge without scraping my skids. After i got up there, they told me the easiest way was to circle over to the right, but i couldn't get any traction that direction, so I went left and, after a handful of tries, miraculously found a vnotch in the rock that gave me the boost up and over i needed. Pure luck. Wish i could say it was skill.

Here's us waiting in line to attempt the hill climb. Take note of the cj.....cause it's awesome. Unfortunately his 4lo wouldn't consistently engage; they ended up having to winch him over the ledge.

It had rained all the night before, everyone's tires were so packed with mud, they looked bald

So I heard from a reliable source today down at Jeep Beach that today's Jeep Parade was 6 lanes wide and each lane was about a 1/4 mile long.....

But if it were the fat pigs called JK...it would only be 5 Jeeps wide
Oh and don't forget the long JKULMNOP's...so maybe 30 Jeeps long?


I would like to know just how many Jeeps were there

How come the obsolete.... Err I mean older models have to talk S about the newer, better, more powerful and obviously far superior models? Even the pre 2012 jk's talk S about the 2012 and up Jk's just because they got the better engine, transmission, interior and awesome A/C.
