    These things escalate quickly


    40's are only 2.5" bigger than 35's, just all around

    I also know plenty of people who would pay much more for an extra 2.5"


    I'll see myself out

    Reinstalled the steering box skid plate. I had to take it off for the tow bar install to bring her home from North Maine Woods last fall.

    Hello, my name is Mitchell and I have a problem. I am hooked on using non-suspension-lift modifications to run larger tires to gain additional underbody clearance while staying LCOG.

    It all started the day I bought a Jeep...

    I've heard that if you bolt lead plated under your skids, it will lower your center of gravity.

    Default hydroboost

    By today I mean this week. I mounted the hydroboost and plumbed fresh brake lines to the new MC, mounted a second TJ PS pump with remote res, and re ran the brake lines across the rear axle that had been sketchy since I went from the D70 to the 14 bolt. I'm just waiting on a few more fittings to plumb the hydro lines to make the hydroboost go.
    oh and swapped my tranny fluid and offered a sacrifice to the jeep gods that my trans wont grenade this weekend.
    and all my front wheel studs match.

    I made some quick disconnect pins for front sway bar links (WHY did Jeep have to go metric!)

    Made up my own thumb throttle setup, looking forward to trying it out today!

    Nice, those should be a big help, especially the throttle if you have a winch, always wanted to do a setup like that on my TJ

    Removed the whole drivetrain and front clip. Chopped off the front coil buckets. Notched the frame to increase bump travel. Planned out a rear axle re-build, rear stretch, front coilover hoops, and the rest of my v8 swap.

    Nice. This weekend I start pulling mine apart too. This winter is a v8 swap, tub replacement, frame repair and some kind of cage. Should be fun!

    She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid. I've made a lot of special modifications myself.

    YESSSSS! All the V8 sawps! Always a good time. Look forward to seeing the progress.

    Be prepared to find a lot of things that make you scratch your head in confusion. And also rust. It is a great opportunity to clean up wiring and replace things you've been putting off for a while now.
