I no longer live there! It will be getting bulldozed when I get home. I bought the house directly to the west of me. I will be finding all the good trails out here so I will have a good report for you.

I have been getting some work done on the jeep. My fuel injection from Howell will be here today. I also just ordered a thick gas tank skid and art Carr shifter for it. I'm hoping to have it all ready to rock by the first of July!

It runs and drives but I still have a couple issues to address before I can put too many miles on it.

It sits 2"-3" higher in the rear than the front do to the 8.8 having bigger axle tubes and the v8 up front. I want to order different springs but I don't know the proper combo to make it have the right stance since it isn't stock.

I don't want to go up in the front, I want to go down in the rear.

If you know what the springs are or have a set of stockers you can borrow to find corner weights, you can find the right springs..........
