well since ive been laid up all winter the jeep hasnt moved much at all so the snow built up around it and i just didnt put it in the same spot it was so its half on dirt and the other half is siting on the snow lol
but to be honest i kinda like the looks with out the flairs but the flairs made it look cool from a mall crawler point of view lol...yea being broke sucks i guess it really is a jeep thing lolyea last month the docs informed me the spot i hurt in my back is in an area they can not operat on so basicly im stuck with the pain the reast of my life and am looking at disablity ..im goan fight for retraining in a new line of work that doesnt involve heavy lifting ..when i got hurt i was building houses

Poundin nails up there is the big money maker though, haha. I worked in fairbanks on my uncles crew for some time.
If you can man, try go for a electrican job, if you can make journey-man, you can get on with the Pipeline wiring the pump stations or Milt. Bases for them Davis Bacon wages.

Good looking 2-dr. What size rubber are you running, and what axles? I like the look of the Bushwhackers, but in the Pacific NW they just get ripped off on trees.

Here's my 2-dr:

'94 H.O. AX-15, -231, Terra 2Low kit
HP D44 front, Detroit, 4.88, alloy shafts, superior joints
Ford 8.8 Rear, discs, Detroit, alloy shafts etc...
34" Interco Trxus Radials (best tire I've ever seen in the snow, btw...seeing as you're from AK)
all sorts of other stuff, too much to list really.

BTW, I beat the living snot out of my 27-spline 8.25 with a lock-rite in it for a few years with ZERO problems. Only replaced it for the discs (HUGE difference) and the 4.88's.

Anyway, nice rig again.

EDIT: No, it looks like your rig a 97+, which means it's a 29 spline. This is a better axle, but there's no cheap locker for it. It's a rough spot; no really good answer, IMHO.
