>dumping pics of my jeep from yesterday
>tfw Jeep is down for maintenance
>tfw waiting on parts in the mail
It says it shipped but no tracking updates
Fuck wtf, i posted it why didn't it go through?
Have some more pictures but need to resize after I shower
Mine is the dark blue one. It's stock. My buddy's is 1.6 swapped.
I tried fixing mine with some parts store o-rings that looked to be properly sized, but that made it worse, so I bought the genuine Mopar O-rings for too much money.
the extent of my "off-roading" is usually just making my way to remote campsites because lol 157" wheelbase but it's still fun.
Sup guys pretty new to the offreading scene. I drive a 99 wrangler sport I6 4.0L
All the money I've put in has been repairs not a single upgrade. I plan to bedliner my fender flares and side steps, install an aussie locker in the front, lift 3 inches since my shocks and springs are completely worn anyways and put on 31 inch tires. I like mostly just driving trails and dirt roads. Absolutely terrified of rocks and mud is kinda meh.
Keep us posted. I did the lift on my JK last May.
How long did it take you? What I'm looking at is just shocks and springs, plus adjustable track bar and a transfer case drop. I'm afraid of stuck bolts needing to be drilled out an whatnot though
Just got my truck. Planning on throwing an LED bar behind the grill, skid plate, and a bull bar soon. Before that I'm getting some all terrains since the tires I have now are pretty meh.
I'd love one too, but it's too social. I just want to be alone with my wife and/or dogs and not deal with strangers.
Used to have a glorious lightly modded xj on a 4" and people are just too friendly.
Not really sure what I want to do with my YJ.
I think I'm just going to do SOA with d44s.
I barely drive it anymore, can't really sell it, lost interest in offroad a bit since none of my friends are into it so reluctant to drop money in it.
My dad wants to SBC swap it, but if we're doing that why not just go all out with 1 tons and 4 link t b h
pretty much the crux of motorsports. wheres my lotto win.
i'll be doing that once I lift, and get a flat deck put on this, wanna get a quad and an aluminium boat as well one of these days
i'm gettin one of these soon
haven't decided all what i'm gonna do to it yet
My dad's a big jeep guy and picked up this '85 nissan 720 for $1k as a project for us after I showed interest in his neighbor's toyota. Previous owner rebuilt the top and bottom and totally gutted the thing. We have it running with a weber conversion and mostly back together now except for tail lights, seatbelts and other lesser important things.
Planning on doing a solid axle swap and bobbing the back 13" or so, already have a toyota front axle waiting to get swapped in.
It's sitting on 33s right now and it does ok offroad for IFS, probably gonna go 34s or 35s when we're done with it.
This company makes nice bumpers, too bad they're so expensive.
Fun trucks, my old one took a beating. Bought an 83 toyota and will never look back, parts are 100x easier to find around me
Off road people, say I buy something maybe like third gen 4runner. Then I buy bigger tires and fit them to fitting steelies and repair any issues with my suspension, outside of rock climbing or specialty stuff, it can handle most terrains?
I dont know anything about off road, i have lived little sedan life
Yeah I kind of wish he had scored a toyota instead just for the aftermarket. It's all good though, gonna have to fab pretty much everything for this build, SAS shit, front and rear bumpers, cage etc.. My dad did welding for a living so it'll be a good exercise to learn on.
Digging that flatbed btw, might do that instead of bobbing the bed.
That's it. Also 4Runners are pretty limited on tire size, even with a lift which I'm not a huge fan of. See what you can do with the largest tire you can fit with full suspension travel at the stock suspension height and see if you need more.
That flat bed was horrible, the logs were there to help keep the ass end on the ground as much as possible. My yota has a nice fullsize aluminum flatbed, so much better riding
Don't do that. You'll regret it. A simple budget boost with shocks is all you need to run 31's. On a TJ you can run 33s with no rub on 3.5" of lift. I personally know a couple guys running 33s on a zone 3" lift.
are you me
I've been wanting to flatbed this, ive already swapped a 1980 front clip onto it.
Specs on yours? mines 5.0/5 speed
Do any of you guys use your offroader as a DD? If so where do you live and what is your commute like? Once I get commisioned I'm planning on getting into offroading/overlanding but I don't think I'll be able to afford 2 seperate vehicles on O-1 pay. Seems like a lot of the guys on forums other than this have 2 vehicles though.
I daily my toyota. it get's 20+ mpgs and drives in a straight line, but it would be nicer with AC and more storage room. Not gonna lie, it'd be nice to have another truck so I wouldn't be as worried when I take it out to the woods on the weekends
My JK is my DD. Live in downtown LA. I have to drive far to go have fun in anyplace lol. But when I don't feel like having to spend $50 go fill up my gas tank, and I'm not going wheeling, I'll just use my wife's 08 civic if me and her are going out
>it'd be nice to have another truck so I wouldn't be as worried when I take it out to the woods on the weekends
This is one of my main worries, I don't want to fuck my vehicle up and then not be able to make it to work on monday.
Just drive carefully and to the best of your ability. Safety is important. It's best to bring others with you too if for at least to get you out if you're stuck
My new 4wd project, 1990 Toyota 4Runner. It'll be getting the drivetrain from my suburban after summer is over. 350 TBI, 700r4, 241c, Dana 60 and 14 BFF with 41.5" PitBull rockers. Also gonna 3 link the front with ORI air struts and leafs in the rear. Can't wait to chop it all up and make it into a super crawler. Later down the line it'll get a 4 speed Atlas transfer case, also a 5.3 LS motor.
its a bad picture but that's a 3 inch lift limited slip dif 4wd super charged xterra
>b..but there's not fog lights its ssstock
some of us can actually turn a wrench on /o/
enjoy your shitty dodge transmissions
I use Goodyear Duratracs and Cooper Discoverer STs. Depends on which is cheaper when I buy them. They work great off road and aren't obnoxious on road. You'll hear the Duratracs during hard cornering, but they are otherwise pretty silent.
first gens are reliable as fuck senpai the manual trannyz never die and it litterly has the same motor as the 300zx also I have no idea what a locker is I'm just shit posting my xterra everywere :3
>IFS faggot detected
It's only good for the highway, solid axle shits all over IFS and I have an IFS truck.
>3 inch lift limited slip dif 4wd super charged xterra
Is that supposed to be impressive?
A TJ with the same lift and tires would destroy your shit.
Really depends on what you're going to go through. 31 inch all terrains will get you anywhere you need to go in the woods by me, but there's some places you need at least a 35. Tire pressure matters a lot too, I'll bring a compressor and air down when I'm playing in the sugar sand
I bought my LX470 new. I didn't go off road with it for a couple of years because I was living in the city and was too busy. Then I moved and now it gets used off road just about every day. I'm not worried about damage, but I've never had any real damage to it. I'm careful about how I drive.
Having owned both solid axle and ifs trucks, they can take a hell of a lot more beating. If it's a weekend warrior that I drive everyday and take out twice a month, I'd rather have IFS for the ride quality
Yes, it does. IFS has shit flex, they basically have two tiny axles, one for each wheel and that's what limits the amount of flex. They're also weak as fuck.
Ever wonder why people who are serious about offroading never use IFS? Go look at pure offroad builds and 99%+ use solid axles. Shit, guys go through the expense and trouble of cutting IFS crap out just so they can weld in link or leaf shackles for solid axles.
It's fucking trash for offroad.
That photo impresses you?
Look at how horribly humvees flex, you could literally flip this truck over by hand. Now take a cold hard look at that SAS tacoma.
Is that what you really believe?
Articulation is an important aspect of offroading, anon. No matter how retarded you act your IFS truck will always get shit on by solid axle trucks.
Look at this faggot, Flex is everything when you're offroad. It keeps you much more stable while crawling over uneven terrain. Also since you can keep all 4 tires on the ground you have more traction for moving forward. Lockers help no matter the suspension design, but flex and lockers is the way to go.
It adds some perceived stability, but traction gets reduced due to removing weight from the tires. Most solid axle setups have about the same flexibility as their independent counter parts, anyway. Of course you're going to argue about some super modified thing, though.
>ifs shit flex
Have you ever heard of unsprung weight? It actually helps offroad. Solid axle trucks have more unsprung weight which helps keep the tires against the ground to give traction while flexed out. Also stock for stock a solid axle vehicle will always outflex a IFS truck. But who leaves their 4wd stock and goes offroad seriously? Also the bigger the tire the more weight, the larger the axles the more weight is helping keep the vehicle moving forward while flexing out.
>It adds some perceived stability
Video very related.
>traction gets reduced due to removing weight from the tires
This is such a silly statement I don't even...look at the photo of the hummer on the ramp with one wheel just all hanging out. Now look again at the tacoma, think about how the weight is being transferred in these vehicles.
The tacoma has more evenly distributed weight all around, the rear tires are damn near even while the front right tire has the brunt of the weight the front left still has a substantial amount. You can tell by the compression of the tires.
The humvee has the vast majority of its weight on the rear right and front left, it's also about to tip the fuck over.
Right, you're starting to get it now!
>Most solid axle setups have about the same flexibility as their independent counter parts
That's simply not true.
Try using that in the real world in the rocks, it has a lot of travel yes, but it wont flex the way you want like a solid axle. That setup is for desert racing, not 4 wheeling in the rocks.
Clearly this is a troll, no one is this stupid. Because apparently all the 4wd experts in the world are all wrong and you're right is that it? Thousands of solid axle swaps each year and all of them looking for more flex, to say they are all wrong when the results prove themselves.
It is you who has no understanding of physics. Because in the real world solid axles and flex beat shitty IFS.
My suburban has leaf springs front and rear, and still outflexes IFS trucks. Pic related, back when I had the 37s...
My 4runner I just picked up will have a 3 link in the front, leafs in the rear with full width 1 ton axles. It will flex with the best of them.
>It adds some perceived stability
Having all four wheels on the ground is more stable than trying to balance on two or three.
End of story.
>but traction gets reduced due to removing weight from the tires
The vehicle does not become heavier and improve traction when one wheel lifts.
Your net weight is the same. Dividing it up between four wheels instead of two increases your chances of one of the wheels being driven of being on a surface where it can make traction.
>Most solid axle setups have about the same flexibility as their independent counter parts
Except it's far easier to gain articulation with solid axles than it is with independent suspension.
I just have the same bf Goodrich tires I've always had. Used for everything. 20k miles on it and no problem. Have never been stuck in anything either.
Question: some American company based in Lancaster is offering to five me a full exhaust system.
"This system has a Helmholtz chamber instead of a muffler so you get all the benefits of a straight thru exhaust system with out the noise and with no DRONE!"
Should I do it? They'll want my jeep for a week.
It has 52s up front, with the B52 kit from DIY4x, and 56s in the rear which are factory w/ shackle flip. It wouldn't flex that good if it had the 47s... Haha
I can't wait to see what mine will do with 52s and 63s. But from the looks of it I'll need to build yet another pair of 52" packs. Too soft, too tall, and now too stiff. I'm thinking the dodge 5 leaf packs with an AAL should get me about where I want to be though.
I hear these are really affordable.
And the Combi would be a cool camper van.
Why is it that every off road thread gets shittered up with SAS/IFS debates. We wheel our shit, can't we all just get along? Nothing on the underbody of that JKU behind my jeep is stock. Dirty old beast with ORIs, 42s and one tons.
>mfw I want to offroad but have no clue where to go that I won't be trespassing
Just trespass dude I do it literally every day. There's a lumber yard and another big empty dirt lot full of mid, hills, bumps and shit a block from my house. Usually every night on the way home I hit that shit up
WV. There is an off road park 20 miles away but it's closed for the season.
Could also go out to where my parents live but that's 45 minutes away, maybe I'll just have to go there until spring
How much trouble can I get in for driving on service roads? There are a ton of logging/service roads owned by the city or county down here in South VA. If the land isn't posted as no trespassing, can I off road on it?
Here is a video of me using my WJ on one of the service roads:
I have plenty more videos if /o/ is at all interested. My WJ doesn't have any real performance mods, yet. I intend on doing a 2/4 inch lift with 31's sometime this summer. I'm not a big fan of crawling, more so just want clearance for high level water and holes/ruts. I've already bottomed out a few times on things I've seen stock TJs make it through flawlessly.
You will definitely need to regear, question is what size tire you see yourself ending up with. In some cases it may be cheaper to find an axle set with 4.10 gears in it then to buy new R/P gears and install it.
If you plan on going bigger then 33s, you'd be better off going straight to 4.88s with the automatic trans.
Stay off the land regardless. If its a public road/unmaintained road/unassumed road, then it is acceptable for use in most cases. If there is already a trail and no signage, go on it at your own risk and stay on the trail. Don't be a dick and go blazing your own trail and tearing up someones property.
>Ferd Ragner 5 spd mañuel

W-what's going on guys
Its perfect for what I need it for.. Dirt roads at 70 + mph and a fun truck when I wanna play... A sas truck might flex better... But I use my trucks every day and I don't like the harsh ride of a axle I also use to pull 2 tons with a tacoma... Your not going to do that in a crawler. Not too mention I only have 1500 into the tacoma "buying it included". & for your information I dont do how you say "face fuck book".
Pic is of the day I got my taco
This car is used exclusively for off road.
It's seen more dirt than my truck did.
my taco on this trail I sat and watched a bunch of bought not built jeep fags try to climb up for 20min before I cut in front of them and made it in a "mostly stock" taco
Eh. it might have. Last year i was at an ohv park with my brother and a friend, my brother in a 2012 outdoorsmen my friend a 2010 h3 and i have a jk rubicon 2015. We were doing a trail that goes up pretty high and is a little tight but is not very hard or technical and while we were parked at the summit 3 jks came up all with lifts 35s and other mods and they were talking about how hard the trail was.
It really could just be people with mall crawlers finally learning to off-road. But at least they are trying.
Its about balls and not giving a fuck about breaking, scratching, denting or wreaking your shit... People who park their "bad ass off road toys" in the garage and put a car cover on them just dont got the balls or knowledge for 4wheeling. They see the shit on the idiot box and go drop 30 grand on a rig. when they dont even know how to change a tire without AAA.
>defends shitty xterra with low a fuck front bumper, open frint diff and soccermom tier ground clearence
>gets called out for being fucking retarded
>L- look guys! I cherry-picked this one extremely rare and expensive example of a competent ifs, so my point is now validated!
/o/ in a nutshell
Last year some faggot and his wife thought it would be a good idea to take his honda pilot shitheap up a real trail and backed us up for three hours because his shitbox was too trashed to move on. When we finally were able to pass him, he had replaced one rear tire with a spare donut. Later some retards came to their rescue in side-by-sides. Fuck these idiots.
When it comes to muddy/rocky trails it goes pretty well, better than your average AWD SUV, forester, etc. In terms of actual rock crawling its not awful, but by no means good. That's probably because I'm a huge faggot and I'm afraid to destroy a new car. We won't really know if it's easily modified as there's no aftermarket. The exception being a few lift kits at <2".
All part of armchair offroader culture on /o/. But hey, if the bus ever gets stuck these guys are on it.
Quite the contrary. The armchair offroaders are the ones defending their cheap IFS DDs that they don't even wheel by saying they're just as good as or better than SFA.
Then they'll defend their point by comparing travel between a $100k 2WD IFS prerunner and a stock $3k SFA shitbox, as if the travel they get out of their stock torsion bar IFS is comparable to that of the prerunner or even has the remote potential to be.
Lack of aftermarket mods that support a vehicles intended purpose generally implies it's not easily modified.
You can buy bolt on coilover conversion kits for 80s chevy trucks. There's obviously more market for 3-4" lifts for a new Jeep. So if you can't buy them, there's probably good reason for it.
Made this thread for everyone to enjoy and appreciate off rod culture not bitch about axles
Depends on your definition of light trails.
You may be able to get by with just a cheapo LSD for the rear and 30s all around on stock height.
The best way to go about modifying is to 'modify by necessity'
Take it where you take it as it is now, and see where your weak points are, are you bottoming out a lot, have traction issues etc?
First investment would be a hi-lift jack/ other recovery equipment while you're still figuring out what you need exactly, and then eventually it wouldn't hurt to have a winch, but a hi-lift does a winches job just fine, albiet much slower.
>tfw I will never own a chopped rally-spec FJ
>yfw a compact mallcrawler is more durable than a modern Jeep Wrangler
How does it feel to get cucked that hard by Chrys- I mean, FIAT? Why do Americans continue to buy brand new Jeeps of any kind, when they are all objectively shitty vehicles?
You're retarded as fuck. The JKs come with new gen D44s.. basically a ford 9". and lockers front a rear for the rubicon. they are more than capable stock. certainly more so than that lifted corolla you bought you fucking infant.
No one said anything about capable, they said durable.
Jeeps break easier than most vehicles out there, they're just making them too cheap these days. Low-grade alloys and poor quality control. Not to mention the death wobble.
Sorry you bought a cheap piece of shit, should've done your homework.

It happens when a shitty car company improperly designs a vehicle with a SFA, then refuses to amend their awful engineering despite multiple high-speed accidents.
There are plenty of vehicles that use SFA and don't suffer from this problem nearly the way shitty Chrysler products do. Other companies properly design their tie rods, stabilizers, etc. to work under a variety of conditions, whereas Chrysler does not.
It's not a meme unless you're SO inbred and poor that you don't even know how your own shitty vehicle works.
well lets see.. it has 32 splines, 1.6" diameter, and wait for it.. a 9" ring gear.
go look up specs yourself you retarded ape
a stock jk with chromoly shafts will handle 35s all fucking day long on actual challenging trails.
your shitty jap soccer mom suv will highside just getting the the first obstacle. they arent made for offroad.. neither are stock jks or any stock suv for that matter but they are definitely more capable. it's not a debate you're just a fucking no experience idiot.
I understand that perfectly, as I've had my share of Cruisers and Pajeros. This is on reference to the Rav anon claiming his shitbox is more durable than a Wrangler.
The only downside to the Cruiser axles is the earlier 8mm floating axle locating studs were a bit of a potential weak point. Toyota however rectified that with the 100 series and the later coil cab 70 series with 10mm studs.
The biggest issue with the D44 and other axles Jeep likes to use are the weak shit axle housings. That's why the Pajero II suspension was able to do duty in light duty CoE trucks.
Yet you have weaker shafts.
a 3/4 axle is weak in general for actual enthusiast level offroading. You will always have to take steps to help them.
I mean I'm pretty sure you consider camping trails offroading so it's not like you even need a strong axle in the first place.
pic related is jk on factory non-trussed axles with chromo shafts and 35s seems pretty capable to me. enjoy your fire roads.
lower spline and smaller diameter, so yes you do.
you must not know what that word means.
you think stock suvs are "offroad" capable so I can only assume that you're definition of offroad is fire roads and camping trails because thats about all stock suvs are good for.
Op never said if 6x6 is welcome too, am I welcome /o/?
She's street legal now. I will bring it to an /o/ or /k/ meet one day in phoenix arizona.
It's a 5ton, not a duece. It's got a cummins cta(8.3 single turbo), a 5 speed allison with a 2 speed transfer case. has 14r20 michellin xzl tires(22ply, 50 inches tall). 6.72 axle gears, etc.
It's never needed low gear, occasionally I will pop the front axle in though.
It's not mine, it belongs to my friend/dad's friend. Funny you say that, all it's needed is a new haldex air dryer and the fuel system lost prime once. I've put 1000 miles on it prolly. I have free access to it whenever since I am the one who gets called to fix it. You'd be surprised how easy it is to change the tires. 10 bolt 2 piece wheels.
Not as far as I know. It doesn't seem to need it. I have no switch that would lock one. Only thing I could think of maybe in 6lo it locks them by default. It does air it's own tires up though!
I'm going to be buying a few acres outside innasticks and would love to keep a Deuce out back in case of the Happening™.
Was just wondering how they are reliability wise, thanks for the info.
I know they can be found for a few grand.
See I really don't know shit about the duece. This is not a duece, it is a 1994 or 95 am general m923a2. It is not a multi fuel engine, it is not a manual transmission, etc
Shit is heavily reliant on it's air system. Without air you don't have a truck.
It does share driveline parts with a huge amount of semis however. Transmission is Allison 5 speed, medium duty. Engine is an 8.3 cta(medium duty again). Parts are easier to find.
Theres a guy that goes out with a few others in a group I'm in, Humvee is loaded to the tits, looks badass as all mighty hell. Struggles over obstacles that mostly stock wranglers and samurais just waltz over. He gets hung up a lot.
We have a lot of mall crawlers in my area. A lot of fully kitted out JKs/JKUs whos owners think going down a muddy road is 1337 offroading and look down on my jeep cause I make my own stuff for it instead of spending as much as I paid for it on top tier parts. But I'll actually drive the five hours to hit up a proper rock trail.
First proper outing. All stock, the crossmember took a helluva pounding that day.
The most fun I've had offroad was my friend launching his rusty little Zook on tractor tires up a slippery super steep trailhead, and ending up smacking the bumper into a sapling so hard that it locked the steering (pushed into the front tire). After unsuccessfully trying to bend it back using a come along strapped to an F250, he ended up taking an angle grinder to that corner of the bumper and was all set. I really wish I had an old 4x4 beater like that and 60 wooded acres bordering state land to goof around on.
It's a 2door JK and it would be for the front. I probably go twice a month. My little weekend warrior. OP is my JK.
For the rear I'd go with a Detroit locker, they are very quiet and unlock on the street when you make turns, unless you mash it. For the front I'd go selectable like an ARB or E-locker so you could unlock the front to help with steering in the rocks.
i have a third gen 4runner. it doesnt have the locker which sucks, but ive still outperformed a bone stock 2013 2 door wrangler sahara offroad. ive pulled a bronco, a ranger, a mid 200's F150, and a 2015 sierra out of the mud. i have a 3 inch lift and33's, but other than that its stock. its great offroad. the locker would be a big plus though. if you don't plan on doing anything too extreme, not having lockers is fine and you can always retrofit some.
>wanna be prerunner goes south
>$500 shitbox specials
You're an alright guy
Mine, 13 rubicon.
Took it around the west (CA-NV-UT-CO-WY-MT-ID-WA-OR-CA) to do Moab, Ouray, the Oregon trail in Wyoming a couple of years back.
Last year I took it to Alaska and back, doing the Alaskan, Dalton and Dempster highways among others.
literally just had my buddy get my xj stuck
then i proceeded to rape the shit out of the transmission till i got out.
no much but its enough to keep me busy
List of mods? Thinking of upgrading my sport JK when I get the money, but I'd prefer to err on the "mild" side of things that give the most capability-per-dollar without sacrificing too much everyday practicality.
Haha you guys are pretty narrow-minded when offroading. It can literally be anything that is not on a paved surface.
Yes, solid axles are ideal for vehicles that have to navigate wildly un-level terrain, but only about half of vehicles built for prerunning use solid axles. IFS is just as useful for that sport, which is also legitimate off-roading, except they're going through terrain at ~40+ mph. It can absorb terrain better at high speeds, and can offer slightly higher ground clearance than most solid axles with the same tire size.
Well, how big do you want to go? 2.5" budget lift, 33s, sway bar quick disconnects and some skid plates and you've got a pretty decent weekend warrior for $2000-2500 worth of parts. May be more depending on your tire selection
they are pretty bright, a friend of mine has them. i wanna get them to replace my old KC's
>tfw KC's are 20 years old on stock bulbs
mine work pretty good for how faded they are
Mine are about a year old. Next to leds my light output is abysmal. Nice having all of them on while cruising down empty highways late at night though. Stock JK headlights suck balls.
I got a Rubicon express 3.5" (no shocks) for $500 after taxes
$1k for king off road shocks
Stinger bumper from Dv8 off road
Side steps that are strong as fuck for rocks also, by DV8 off road.
Not sure if I should go for control arms first or lockers.
I drive well enough to so obstacles that others would use their lockers for, mainly by airing down to 12psi and driving slower than old people fuck
>tfw I had to drive through six inches of virgin snow on a dirt trail for 20 miles today
San Isabel is fucking beautiful in the winter but god help you when mother nature decides to have some dandruff. Also fucking Pueblo, this is the worst snow storm we've had in years, was crawling in 1st/4WD for like ten miles.
Pic is some kind of Wrangler for those interested.
How are trips like that? I want to live that life once I'm not crippled by the whole "Im in college and my job is terrible" thing. How long does it take to make one of those trips? How much does it cost you, would you say?
What's /o/'s opinion on portal axles? I'm thinking of getting a set
story from the tow truck driver who picked it up is that the lady who owned it put it in gear with the "key on" and it bump started down a hill and went threw a 6 inch pine tree off of a 3 foot embankment into the lady's living room... she shoulda used the parking break.. just saying... oh and i had to clean her dogs blood off of everything
Going to pick up a 94 zj for 6-800$
Has 212k miles on the inline 6 but just passed emmisions so that's some bullshit I don't need to deal with
Suggestions on what to do with it? I want to keep it cheap as possible
Not going to do any super serious offroading but dirt roads, some paths, and general farm work aswell
Also will be a DD for a while
2 inch lift and some trimming?
Coil spacers for maximum cheapness?
I just picked up a 1998 XJ Sport
170Km, chrysler 8.25 rear, high pinion d30 front, np231 tcase, autotragic
1500 bucks. How'd I do? Minimal rust, couple dings here and there, different coloured tail gate. Doesn't leak anything but currently doesn't heat up all the way. Replacing thermostat and water pump in next couple days. Thoughts?
P.S, Stock, no lift or anything. Learned not to buy other peoples nigger rigged shit like the last XJ I had
im a huge fan of my general grabber AT2'S ive had them on 5 or 6 of my trucks and jeeps, the discoverers are popular too but i dont have much experience with them
>AT2s are amazing in deep snow compared to most other all terrains ive used
/o/ likes to call alot of things a meme. they are quieter than most other AT tires, they are great in snow, pretty good in mud, and are cheaper than most good tires
