Thanks for compliments. My interior is the only real nice thing about jeep. Pics hide the trail pin stripes and dents.

A few play pics from naches trip this weekend. My tires are load range E and I had them aired down to 12lbs in the front and 11lbs in the rear and I've had good sidewall flex offroad. But in the rocks my sidewalls were wrinkled all the way to the bead on this climb. I was not using much throttle.

A few more. The flame red 99 is my Buddy Jon's. Oddly enough we have same name and both red 99 xj's.

So I had the smittybuilt seat covers on and this last trip was in the upper 80s all weekend. Now the one consistent bad review on these seat covers is the material doesn't breath and it is definitely true. I thought it wouldn't be to bad and it is. My girl and me both after just a hour of trail riding had soaked backs. So the storage is great but the seat cover section has got to go.

No progress on mine but I got a new roof rack for my moms jeep. Got the rack for $75 off craigslist and the bushwacker flares for $80 off craigslist too. Her wheels and tires I got 5rims and 5 33x12.5 km's at 85-90% tread for $200. And jeep was $2000. It came with a 3.5" lift and we added 2" spacer and shackles to it for a total of 5.5"s of lift. I think we paid $75 for the extra 2" budget boost we added. So we got a total of $2430 plus tune up stuff. Can't beat that

After work going to pick up a set of 35" km2's. Well they are actually 315/75/16s. So any locals interested in my current rubber I have 5 km2s in the 33.1" diameter with lots of tread for 16" rims

Here are pics of new used $300 rubbers

Jeep Jeep all cleaned up and ready for some 35's. I'll be re-gearing here at the end of the year. I want to run 4.88's but I hear allot of people saying the pinion gets small (weaker) but I'm not really wanting to run 4:56 either. If I'm gonna re gear I want the steepest gear I can get (4.88).

I just put my new axles with 4.56 gears under my XJ a few weeks ago, and as of Saturday, I'm on 35's now. It's not too bad, but 4.88 might give you a bit more when driving on pavement. I'm more concerned with reliability on the trails & not concerned with Blacktop performance though.

You rig looks great, keep it up. Nice wheelin Picts too.

Thanks for the complement. Yeah I would rather have a good balance of trail reliability and on road performance. But if it's a negligible difference between ratio as far as strength I'll do 4.88.

Im looking forward to having these mounted. Im curious to see what a extra inch of ground clearance does, a extra 6lbs of tire on each corner, and I wheel in low range if there is a lot of climbing to help my trans from working to hard so I'm interested to see if there is a huge loss of torque.

I'l be going with 4.88's I think I'm just gonna spend the extra cash on a quality set of gears and have em cyro'd for the Dana 30.

Couple poser shots.

Last couple pics got my Oregonian friend keep my rig for teetering. My jk shocks have a whopping 8" of travel. They are getting swapped for some 13" travel craigslist specials today. Then my stock control arms will be next on the list before I hit some trail again. I've got to trim my flares some more up front too. I'm getting some craigslist bushwacker today too but I don't think I'll use them on this jeep. I was over changing heater core in is 2000 wj. Oh what fun.
