Scout Oh crap, scratch that. You'll have to deal with me.
01-13-2008 11:11 PM
MR.CLIFFORD Ohh good. I'm great with the ladies.
01-13-2008 11:08 PM
Scout I'll let you speak to the wife. She makes all of those decisions.

MR.CLIFFORD Tile will greatly improve the value of your home. Heated tile even more. In a recent study of new home owners....blah blah blah. I'll save you the salesman pitch.


it's all in how you want to look at it.
01-13-2008 11:02 PM
Scout Ha! I bet you do! I think I've spent enough money in the last couple of weeks though.
01-13-2008 11:01 PM
MR.CLIFFORD I can hook you up. I install heating elements under tile.
01-13-2008 11:00 PM
Scout Will do!

I guess I now need heated floors.
01-13-2008 10:59 PM
MR.CLIFFORD As long as you ship yourself with it. You'll love my heated floors
01-13-2008 10:55 PM
Scout New shop? Oh cool, I'll ship my junk to you from now on. I need an oil change.
01-13-2008 10:53 PM
MR.CLIFFORD I've decided to stick with the leaf springs for a few more runs. I'm going to swap out leaf packs and swap leaf spring shackles which are 2 big limitations I have now. That should greatly improve my junk as it sits. If I can't make it work the way I want then I will swap out for the coilovers with a back half setup. That will all be done in my own shop. Which hasn't started construction yet.
01-13-2008 10:48 PM
Scout So when are the rear coilovers going in?
01-13-2008 10:43 PM
MR.CLIFFORD Just swapping leaf packs for a different set with a lower spring rate. Coilovers will stay the same.

Not yet. If there were a place to go around here I would. Every piece of land around here is owned my an oil and gas company and that makes it impossible to go anywhere. But, of course, even that is completely flat land. I literally live in the middle of freaking no where with no place to wheel. That's why I do the Jeep Jamborees. It at least gets me out somewhere (on private land) where I can see what it can do. The next Jamboree is two months away.

MR.CLIFFORD Show her pictures for motivation.



Anya helped me strip the tires off my Hutchinson double bead locks. That! was a workout.
01-13-2008 08:45 PM
tiny terror Nice Scout.
01-13-2008 08:24 PM
Scout Thanks everyone. It was a mild pain in the butt but I'm glad I did it. My mission for the second half of the year was to increase traction. I think with the addition of beadlocks I should be there or damn close to there.


Andy, if you can figure out a way to get my wife to even touch my Jeep then the next round is on me. I can't wait to get it down to those low PSI's and see what this thing can do.
01-13-2008 06:16 PM
Scotty355 Looks Great!!!
When did you put garage doors in the kitchen?
01-13-2008 03:30 PM
MR.CLIFFORD Man, should have done what I did and just had the wife do it. Beadlocks suck. But airing your Iroks down to 4psi is worth it. Your jeep now > black rims before.
01-13-2008 12:48 PM
4point Wheels look great! .......................................and they match that shiny exhaust tip.
01-13-2008 12:34 PM
jeeperman Looks great! (even though we all know you don't care about that stuff) Sorry, couldn't get it out with a straight face. Now, when do we see the pics of them getting used?

mrbigjeep beast...looks sweet.
