Default Forum n00b questions

what does it when I see the word 'bump' within a thread reply?

What does 'lunch bump' mean?

Is it sheaper to buy/perform/install mods on Jeeps than Chevys?

Where can I find the Dummy's guide to gear ratios and what they mean?

Who is Bogginboy?

What is the history of the GreatLakes4x4?

Should I go for a bigger suspension lift in order to get fat rollers beneath my truck, or should I do a body lift?

When you replace IFS with a front axle/diff, where do you get it from? Can you just get a rear axle and use that?

Thanks for helping, and stop laughing...

Is this even doable? Sounds like non-sense to me.

takes the thread to the top of the list so it doesnt get burried in posts.

probably someone "bumping" their post during lunchbreak

not a jeeper, but there's a helluva aftermarket, and half the time, what you want for a jeep is probably for sale used here in the classifieds.

google

the local laughing stock... infamous for being a deadbeat in deals.

not real educated myself

suspension if you can afford it.

well, if you want to be able to steer you have to use a front axle, and it has to have the differential on the same side as your front output on the transfer case.



good luck... with getting questions answered seriously... looks like you'll need it around here.

Let's see if I can help.

Bogginboy is a douchebag. Don't buy anything from him. Don't sell him anything. That's all.

There once was a website called misheegenjeapers.com where a bunch of social misfits would hang out, instead of being around other people. The owner sold it to another douchebag who ruined the site. So some girl named Kelly from Clarkston used money from a business her parents gave her to start greatlakes4x4.

You probably should not use a rear axle in the front. An unmodified rear axle probably won't steer very well. Unless you mount the axle in the very center and use a rope at either end to steer.

Dealing with Bogginboy= FAIL

thats the main thing to remember

Anyway, welcome to the thread, when you get past the jokers you can get good answers.
Bender did pretty good answering your Q's.
Harrassment is the norm here, don't let it get to you
