Double_a914 As for a mini-project, I'm sure I can't be the only one that appreciates how easy this cleans up a rats nest of wiring.

BleepinJeep's DIY: Relay and Fuse Box: http://youtu.be/aG37G9dBXv8

I think the coolest thing is using the cat 5 cable to run the positives to the switches in the cab. I doubt I'll be able to find an xj fuse box like he has but I'm sure any similarly wired one would work.

Double_a914 What I REALLY want right now is just some offset rims. I like the level 8 trackers, especially the price. Offset combined with 1"lift will help get rid of that stock look.

I would suggest 3" suspension+ 1" BL or 4" suspension lift for 33s if that's all you're doing. You can run less but will likely sacrifice some up travel and chew at you're flares. Once you learn more you'll find ways to run tires without lift.
Nah I won't go any bigger than 31s until I get out of college in the next 4-5 years. Unless the money/parts fall in my lap then I'm not gonna invest in regearing & beefier axles just yet. I like what I've heard about the zone combo lift. But I'm not ready to go that high just yet, since 4.25" would look a little empty with 31's. That's a good point about the mml though.

I had the windshield folded but hit a bump a little hard and this happened. Guess they made the cheapest link the weakest link. Just hadn't gotten around to putting it back on

Tall lift = tall center of gravity which could be dangerous and 33" tires looks goofy on my TJ with only 3" of lift but what ever floats your boat lol

you could do a 3-4in lift with 33s. With all the lift you want you will need an sye and a cv drive shaft and if you go bigger than 33s then you will need to swap your rear end

X2. Figure out what tires you want, then find out what all you have to do in order to get them.

DeepSouthJeeper So I zip tied my sway bar while at the offroad park only to find it ripped itself loose. Any of y'all ever have this happen?

I'd love to, but I'm focusing on some MTs, lockers, and oil pan skid before flattening out that one.
