These are my thoughts too. The jeep looks sick! Great work.:awesome:I have a 6 speed manual and the stock 4.10 diff gears. The 35" tires made 1st gear usable now. With stock tires 1st gear (in high range) is so low it is almost not usable. I still take off in second gear sometimes with 35's. I will probably change gearing some day but with the manual 6 speed the gearing isn't bad at all. I've heard the auto transmission setup is totally different and needs to have some diff gearing redone to work decent.
I decided to go ahead and upgrade the mirror brackets to something that is a little more sturdy than the thin/flimsy ones that come with the mirrors.The doors on my Jeep had never been removed. The paint had never been cracked on them so I figured I would give it a try and see how I liked driving without doors.
I needed to run mirrors but hated the idea of buying expensive mirror especially if I didn't like running with the doors off.
I found this write up and it worked pretty easy. Super simple and cheap !
If I decide I like running with the doors off I may make some sturdier arms for the mirrors to mount on as these seem flimsy.
Here is the link to where I got the instructions for mine:

Haha, yeah... huge difference in interior space.So what are you doing with all of the extra room you now have inside your jeep compared to the Samurai
