I'm a lil late on this thread but if your still subscribed how has it been having a jeep? Have you started any mods yet? I'm just finishing up a 2 year build on my 2001.

I've got a 4" rough country xflex lift. Ford 8.8 rear and grand wagoneer dana44 front, both with 4.56 gears. It's got a slip yoke eliminator kit and a cj driveshaft. It's rolling on a set of 37"x12.50"x15" Goodyear mtrs. I'm wrapping up the front gear install tonight and hope to get it mostly back together tonight. I wanna add flattop knuckles in the future cause I've already got them just have to get em drilled and tapped. That will be it for a while. I've been working in this thing and dumping $ into it for the last 2 years. Now I just wanna drive it and wheel it and fix just what I have to. If you do decide to start building plan ahead but at the same time try not to get carried away. This is the 5th jeep I've had and none of the others were planned well. I was always breaking stuff and getting stranded in the woods. This one I've tried to plan and have an end goal. It should be a pretty capable jeep that I can have fun with for a while without any major projects in the near future.

I met someone on another forum that has a pretty built TJ. He said he'd be willing to guide me through. Maybe we can get a jeep run going.

I think it's closed until March 15. That's what the website says, I could be wrong though.

Look at all the snow! All these other cars slipping on any sort of incline. Also you get to see which SUV owners actually opted to 4wd/AWD instead of just RWD. =)
