Default Newbie Intro

Hey everyone! Not really too new to the site, I've been trolling since I was doing research for my Jeep this past summer. Awesome site though!

About the wheels:
I bought my 03 TJ back in May of 2010, tooled around Silver Lake that summer and was hooked. Installed AEV's 6" long arm kit and 37's this past July and just went to the Mounds yesterday for some post-Thanksgiving fun (I'll post some pics in Trail Rides). I'm extremely impressed with what the Jeep can do and look forward to getting on some more trails and rocks soon!

About me:
I'm a powertrain test engineer at Chrysler and have grown up in the SE MI area playing around with street/strip drag cars mostly and am just getting into the 4-wheeling scene. I honestly think I have more fun wheeling, than I do racing since I'm more of an outdoors kind of guy. Kind of thinking about saving up for a Cascadia rooftop tent and really start exploring some backroads on some trips.

Anyways, I'm happy to be here!

Thanks!

I'm not afraid to admit that after I made it over that first cement pipe, I backed out of them. Not sure if I'm quite ready for those yet LOL Need to get my oil pan/trans pan skids on first.

You are ready for it you just don't know it yet
The real question is is your wallet ready for it

Thanks Krista. I was just checking yours out in your other thread, looks good!

BTW, I grew up in Roseville (Frazho/Gratiot area).

Well, I tried them again last week. Buckled a tie-rod (37's on stock steering ) and took out the trans pan LOL Somehow managed to drive it home though after some backwoods repairs.

To my surprise, an OEM pan is only $9. The filter and fluid cost more. Almost worth just buying a bunch of pans rather than the tranny skid plate
