Re: ExTankerGuy's '88 MJ

I wish our jeep was that light. Ours is a pig. Last time it was on the scale it was at 4600lb and that was before this last round of modifications. Im thinking it will be up around 5,000 lbs now.

Did it seem to do ok down at Redbird? Anything that needs changed right away?

Re: ExTankerGuy's '88 MJ

But it looked cool doing it.

I still think the Ford should've flexed on a rock in the group picture

Re: ExTankerGuy's '88 MJ

Running same tires on a buddys 5.3 powered TJ with a J54 kit, RVCs and Grizzly. He had 37 Treps but the 37s where back ordered too long and these where 2/3rds the price.
