Other information about your Jeep you want to share:

I caught the fever in January and have absolutly lost control. You guys have seen my intake and exhaust dyno testing, The Rock Krawler 2.5 X-Factor installation thread and development of the axle cam. Lots more, but those are the big ones. Im a jeeper to the core now. Its to the point were Im taking welding classes.

2 pics is a tough limit. Here are some from today in Rausch Creek. It was raining, I normally would have had the roof off with the safari straps out.

Any Jeep is a good jeep. And they are all worth writing home about.

Just curious, what didn't you like about the rear tire carrier? I put a Bestop on mine, but mine is a TJ. It feels pretty solid, but it definitely took some work to put together.
