Mods For The Cage

Got some new shoes for the cage last week...



I think it looks great and I was surprised that the 32"s fit with the stock suspension.

This weekend I am going out of town and dropping the POS off at the shop to have the suspension installed. 3.5" lift. Super excited!

Are you doing a body lift as well or just the suspension lift?

Just the suspension lift for right now. See how that works out for me.

My friend has a YJ with the same lift I am doing and the same rims and tires and after some light test offroading as is my TJ was articulating as well with stock suspension as his with the upgraded suspension. Its great to have coilsprings in the rear from the factory!

This is true... a 4 door would have been money except I am sick of car payments and wanted something i could drive for cheap.

I had a 98 wrangler... it was a fun vehicle and great off road, but it was NOT a everyday practical vehicle, and the gas mileage sucked! Oh and it was slower than balls.

haha yeah well I just sold my other car and this is my DD now. I dont mind the non practicality of it but the gas does bug me a little. I calculated an average mpg of 19 before the tires, I will try again after the lift is on and see how much it hurt. I installed a K&N and it actually did help out some but maybe a mpg or 2...

Slow? Thats what the Busa is for

Yeah, I've always liked the green w/tan top... I actually saw one with a black top and it looked terrible. I am just on a 'make everything black' kick.

One of these days I will own a Jeep.

I like the green. It looks nice. I really want a jeep wrangler as my next vehicle in a couple of years.

Now is the time to buy. Did you see that Jeep and Chrysler are now offering lifetime warranties on the drivetrain?

Yeah, I just cannot justify getting rid of my truck... I have no trailer to haul anything... nor do I really have a place to store a trailer... The truck is just too convenient...
