Yeah, while I've never had service done at 4WP, I've had some real fiascoes with their parts people (I have a YJ I bought a long time ago, already with a lift). I've found them to be arrogant and condescending.

JPI is 130-mile round trip from me. But if you want something done right...

Anyway, close to pulling the trigger on a new Rubi, just wanted one less thing to worry about...a local dealer quoted me $15K for a lift.

He just got himself chopped off the list of dealers I'll be "dealing" with.

I had some little kid hanging out the window of his dads Cherokee giving me the thumbs up yesterday. He was so cute, I gave him the thumbs up back and waved. His dad was cracking up

I get tons of nods and waves of acknowledgment in the Jeep, but I do get them in the car too, even with it being 8 years old.

I thought it was just the bright Orange Crush that made me smile everytime I look at my Jeep. But, when Mikes TJ is in the driveway I smile too and it's just black so it's obviously more than a color thing

Mike said he read something about gas going up again after January due to some stupid tax. I told him we're eating rice and beans because we're not selling a Jeep!!! I guess the Diesel Grand Cherokee may be a reality after all.

my license plate will have to be JKU TJ GC, lol.

I just want to have fun with it. I'm a hot rodder at heart. So I will continue my build, but with a slant toward trails like Calico and maybe some easier JV stuff, that a fat bellied JKU can do on 37's and be happy. I have to step back every once in a while for my reality check. I really like what Kenny, Steve, and Art are doing and sharing. I'll just keep plugging along and having that big silly smile that my Jeep puts on my face when I drive it. Oh yeah that dry lake is calling. LOL if I posted this before just ignore it. It's one of those days.

Gunner These are all pretty good shops and well known. Those of us who are JPI groupies are that way because Stan and the guys always go the extra mile and stand behind their work and products 100%. If I still had my shop I would be Fabbing on my jeep like mad. But I can't so I found a shop I like and have stuck with them. Try any of the ones mentioned and you will most likely be happy. Build a relationship with them and wheel with them. If it doesn't work out JPI is worth the drive.
08-27-2014 02:18 PM

Point taken! It's hard to beat personal service from a pro.

Good morning everyone.

Gunner Wow that did take some pressure.
08-25-2014 11:29 PM
aw12345 By the way look what happened to the steering box. Would have never guessed there would be enough pressure in there to bend the washer that holds the sector shaft seals in
