Did no one notice this? Why exactly would you need more "dough" to do a t-bar crank? It is a free adjustment in the torsion bars...

There was a jeep Jamboree article and another one evaluating the 9.5t winch. Both were up at browns camp. The magazine is Off Road magazine, 4wheelparts gives a free subscritpion to anyone that buys from them.

There isn't really anything goin on her as far as meets, because there aren't many people in portland. There are a few guys out in Boring, but they aren't on very often.

Yeah, I just added pretty much my stuff to my wishlist, so I can order it as soon as I get all my stuff together.

I need to clear everything with my dad (should be okay with it, although he did have some apprehensions towards body lifts in the past) but I will show him the price comparison between suspension and body lift packages, and I am sure it will change his mind, also the Gap Guards will make it look a lot better than some botched jobs he has evidently seen in the past.

I also think I am going to pick up some AALs they are good and cheap, and that way when I get the money to score new wheels than I can crank the T-bars and have them align everything while they put on the new wheels, (hopefully 33's)

-> ProComp AAL's ~$30
-> Perf. Accessories Gap Guards ~$70
-> Per. Accessories Body Lift ~$215 (I will talk them down to $200)
Total ~$300 No too shaby I must say.


-> In the future possibly these Yokohoma 33's on my Stock 16's

I will keep yall posted on what is going down with my project, should be fun!

Thanks soooo much for all of your help!!

For sure, for sure.

It probably will go down Labor Day weekend, so I am getting pretty excited.

Going to keep my fingers crossed though!


I still need to post pictures of my subs, too. I always start thinking about it, then just kinda forget, because that would require me to do some washing.

For your gear question. Goto Randy's Ring and Pinion, they will have all you need. Just know what size axle you have and what spline.

But this will put you over your $500, so you might as well wait, since you don't want to go on Ebay. I got my gears, from on here, used, but look brand new.:)

Yeah, I am looking through the classified for tires, scoring a good deal from someone looking to get rid of stuff for more money for mods on their truck!
