Skoots is a sightings slut. The top 5 posts are all skoots. I am pretty sure he drives around oakland county chasing Jeeps hoping it is someone from here.

That's what I do. :) But no one ever sees me 'cause I'm in a common stock XJ with no stickers.

I don't understand how I can drive all over the place in my Ram and nobody ever sees it. I don't think I really need stickers for that to be recognized.


Maybe I'll drive it to work one day this week and see if that helps.

Due to my truck's current state, sure. But the factory ratings aren't much different at all if you look them up.

I have the same transfer-case as you now and the winch + bumper probably make up the difference in weight between the 2 motors. I bet I could put the same size tire on that you have right now and drag your ass all over the place...

...if I don't start axle-wrapping. :tonka:

Hmm... I've driven my V8 BR2500HD, my V10 BR2500HD, and SwampJeeps 5.9ISB BR2500HD(stock, and modified)... I'd give the edge to John's Diesel here...

wow, the thread started with seeing skoot, then turned into a debate on who's Dodge is the toughest. Only on GL

For the record, I'll go with John's diesel (cause he lets me use it :tonka: )

I think you missed something, MacGyver. On equal tires, my pull point is approx 8" above his. His CTD advantage is primarily based on his ability to maintain traction. If we were to pull each other, he would be lifted and I would squat. I am also re-geared to 5.13 with a Detroit. I am not aware of all John's mods, but I am assuming that he is still on the stock 4.10/LSD.
