Good stuff man! A Jeep should always be plated, unless of course it is a straight up monster!

lol, it's close. D60s and 39.5s so not the most street friendly, but so far it's done better then I expected on the highway.

I'd say thats monster size! lol. But hey, even though its rough on gas, and doesnt handle that great on the road. Its still a fun thing to drive around and show off your handy skills!

Well made a good find. Was messing with axle shafts in the front and found out my wheel bearings are toast. Working on changing all the bearings now - going to pop the diff cover off next to check internals (should be installing front locker in the next few weeks)

I have a GoPro HD I'm going to be bringing for some sweet action shots and video!

I have some cool ideas for when you tackle the crazy trails!

lol - bring it for the tough trails, if I had a better rollcage would try just about anything. One of the luxuries of trailering the jeep - lol.

I can't take much credit for this jeep - was at the right place and the right time, and fell into a pretty good deal on it. A few items weren't mentioned by the previous owner, but oh well, it has a great base to build off of.

yeah hope I can still bring it to the meeting this friday. Finally got the front bearings done, and hubs installed. Now the passenger caliper is acting up - may be froze up, though it seemed to have been working fine before I removed them.

Refresh us on the Friday meeting - I've missed something. Wouldn't mind meeting up since I'm likely going to miss out at least Saturday June 11.

yes, that would be a bit of a haul. Son goes to school in South Bend and I'm already tired of making that trip. Just curious - seen all of the jeeps running around and looking for someone local to bench race with and hit some trails . . . thanks anyways!

We may get a Annual Hoosiers meet up before the event to just hang out and get some grub if enough people are interested and open on a date and where!

Post up your ideas, I'll go anywhere 30 miles or so outside of 465

We will probably get somewhere to eat on the Northwest side of Indy, or outside of it, since we are all West Side Indiana..

And Jeremy sweet stuff! Let us know if you can make it, that'll work out perfectly.

I have a house waiting for me on Clarendon Road near W42nd & Clarendon. Not sure if that's north or west side. It's one of our investment homes so it's a temporary residence until we decide where to settle.

Has a date been decided upon?

42 and Clarendon is just north of the Butler Campus which i guess would be considered the northwest side. Its pretty close to downtown

The neighborhood doesn't seem bad, the realtors consider it an "emerging" neighborhood. It's a good central location to the freeway's.
