Hi Everyone,

I have had many people tell me to join the WF since i bought my jeep including my training officer, but never had time due to work and school. so finally got time and did it. A bit about me, I'm 21, a criminal justice major and also a police academy cadet while gaining my degree. I just bought my first Jeep. Its a 97 Wrangler SE all factory no Mods, YET but once May rolls around all the parts i have in the garage are going on, so keep an eye out and if ya have any advice or opinions or whatever PM me

Sincerely,
Afitzwrangler

I have 4, 37x13.00R-16.5LT, TSL Bogger Super Swampers, A 5.5" Long Arm Tri-Flex Lift Kit by Rubicon which is that a good lift/suspension kit to have for off roading and what not cause it was a gift but i know nothing about what brands and kits are good or bad?, I also bought a new sound bar but took out the speakers it came with and put in sony Xplod'ers and an amp. I also have grill inserts, Windshield mounted Mirrors, 4 PIAA 540 Series Plasma Ion Fog Lamps and a rugged ridge light bar,
Off Road Only LiteSPOTZ 6 Light Under Chassis Kit, A single pro kit cherry bomb exhaust system, I also have 2 CORBEAU A4 Reclining Racing seats w/ custom 4 point belts a buddy of mine is getting me from his company he works for, and finally i have a HighRock 4X4 front bumper.

For my 21st Bday in april though my friends chipped in and tlked to one of the mechanics at the jeep dealership and they are getting all the schematics, tools and parts to swap out the 4cyl i have in there now and I guess by what they tell me they are going to put in a 8cyl with a 6 speed tranny. That should be awesome with the cherry bomb exhaust i have

though for those of you that go off roading should i install skid plates and better Axels such as Dana axels? any input is awesome

I think you will definitely need to do something about your steering, axles and brakes. That's a lot of weight for your 30/35, steering, and brakes.

Here's some stuff
Steering: Currie Enterprises CJ Axle Parts I know it says CJ, but it goes to the TJ system
Brakes: Premium Front Calipers w/Black Magic Pads, Multiple Applications
or
powerbrakes hydroboosts vacuum boosters everything for your extreme braking needs
Axles: Too many to list
