Thank You.
I never said I was new to fabricating, wheeling or building rigs. In my younger years I built Toyotas. In the last several years I've built full size rigs. I built an XJ for my daughter as well.
It's a hobby of mine. You know the drill. I build them. I get tired of them quickly then sell them and start over. It's a waist of time and money I'm told

That would be fun. I can never find anyone to go with. For instance..... I'm headed up for some snow and rock wheeling above anthony lakes skii area in the morning. Can't find a soul that will go. Guess I'm going alone again.
Before I go on to many extreme trails I need to do a few more things to my jeep. I need to finish my high steer, finish building my front diff cover, and transplant an automatic tranny in my jeep. I don't like 4.1 cases. they are to low for my liking.
When I get those things done I'd be game for sure

Yea I go alone a lot too, but I got a couple people with Jeeps my size or bigger. You don't like the 4:1 low? I'm running a 5.22:1 low or 2.97:1 low. I mostly run the 5.2 as I like to crawl.

Allot of people like it. I personally find it to low for most applications. Low gears and a good automatic tranny will do most anything I care to do and more.
