That would be a great thing! No winch to help me yet, but at least I got a recovery kit in case of emergency towing! Just put the meet up times and / and I'll plan on hooking up with you guys. I'll have to bring the wife of course! I'm trying to get her to get more excited about jeeping, so if this turns out to be a good time.... Well let's say upgrades could be in my future! Thanks, Willy.

I have some stock springs you can put on. Depending on your spring number you might get up to 2 inches.

They will, I've been to gulches once when my JK was stock with stock tires, I was able to do most of the intermediate stuff at the park. I will also check my schedule but I think I can make it on the 16th to gulches.

The only problem about going on friday is that they are not open as long and less people are there. The owner told me to come on a saturday because a lot of people show up with crazy rigs and try the crazy stuff and everyone watches, he said its alot of fun. Gulches hour:Friday afternoon 3:00pm to dusk Saturday 10:00am to dusk Sunday 11:00am to dusk. So i would vote for saturday 17th.

What! Are you saying that I can have them!? Or that I can buy them!? 2 inches would be absolutely perfect for me fitting on the 305's or 315's on it! I wouldn't need any body lift or a budget lift. The drive train would still be perfect. I've always thought the teraflex 1"1/4 bodylift was the only thing I might be able to afford! Now if these springs fit I can accomplish my goal of having a great ride on the road, and a great ride on the trail without totally killing my gas and keeping my suspension smooth and pretty stock. This means a huge amount to me because I'm broke and want to keep working on my jeep. Making it bigger and better like we all do I guess. I'll PM you if you decide to give them to me. Thanks so much for the info too! Man I can ramble on! Hahaha! Thanks again, Will.

Same here! I thought we were shooting for the 17th.? I thought that was topless day too. Hahah! How hard is it to swap the springs out? Is it a day thing or a weekend thing? Thanks again man!!!

Shoot yeah man! That sounds great, it should be about an 1"and 1/2" lift all around!! Thanks so much! Saves me money I don't have. This guess is off of another thread where dude put 19 front and 60 back for a 2" lift all around. So Im pretty much set now for a while at least. Thanks, Will

If you guys go the 17th it will be light. That is the day of the Clemson Poker Run and most guys will be on it. We DO need to hit the Gulches soon for some testing... so if anyone is heading that way, let us know...

Ok I must have confused a few people. Instead of going to gulches I'm headed to TN for go topless day at jeepism that's a store just outside of pigeon forge. There a jeep wrangler store. With bumpers fog lights tire carriers and more as well as tshirts and other clothing. There having there one year anniversary. Then after that we would ride across the foothills parkway and go threw the dragons tail and everyone will have there pictures made as there driving threw. Like the ones I posted. Then if y'all want we can meet Sunday morning and go to gulches. There will be more rigs down there.

Ok man! Saturday would be great! Do I need any special tools?? Well do it in old fort just outside of asheville. I've got tools, a basement, and space to work under a big she'd so weather won't be a problem! You got my number right!? Thanks sooooo much! I could never do it by myself, with my back the way it is I'd be crawling around for a week afterwards. Thanks man! This weekend right?! Ok sorry for the excitement but you must understand! Later Willy!

Well I'm kinda a Newby at this type of jeep work. I got blessed with a new friend in the making who seems to know what he's doing, so I'm just riding shotgun and I'm pretty much gonna just do as he commands me! There seems to be lots of people here who are experts! Someone will be able to help you out I'm sure! Good luck man!!

Nothing special. You have a floor jack or jack stands? If not I can get them from my work to us.
