Watch the classifieds. They tend to be an impulse buy and then get sold when someone breaks something on their real rig lol.

I've been offered trades for an RC rig for Jeep parts a few times. The last one I remember was for an axial or something like that. No idea what those things are worth so wouldn't consider a trade.

WOKNROX It started lift as a Kyosha 10th scale monster truck but other than the axle housings and the side plates for the frame everything else is hand built.
I'd say I've got about a grand into it including the 4 channel remote.

I thought I saw a glow off the hills, haha. Sounds like a fun night, I loved our night run there.

Then by the time you want to change it, you'll hopefully saved enough to buy a Pro Rock or Currie.
I keep hearing about c gussets and ball joints. I'm going to look into that after I get my tires on. Thanks brotha.

My thinking is if I wait long enough mike will just give up on me selling it and just buy the Cherokee, lol.

Probably not going to happen though

I have 2 DD's to choose from, my JKU and my G35 coupe. It like night an day between the two, I feel like Jeckyl & Hyde. Lol, if I sell the G35 and get the Grand Cherokee at least there will be a little more consistency. Too bad I can't make the commitment to sell it yet, I love my little slot car

I say go for the 35" and save yourself money in the long run. If you go with 33" before long your just going to be selling them to go with the 35". If you go with the 35" now you won't have to buy them later and that money can go to an upgrade to better support them.
You will go bigger, it's a fact no matter how hard you fight it, lol. Just do it!!!

If anything wears out over time it will be the ball joints and that is just cuz JK stock BJs suck. (See what I did there?)

well it bolts to the tie rod hole and one of the unit bearing holes. I think it should be fine, but I don't think it would be worth it or clear our 15" wheels of you flip the tierod even with heims. My heims are on the way I just need some tubing and so that might have to wait till the 4 day in 3 weeks
