It's a good point and I actually have the old headlights under the rear seat because I don't 100% trust that these LED's won't just flake out on me - and honestly I've always carried one spare headlight anyways.

Went to michaels arts and krafts with Stacy in red rocket and shit she stayed twce backng into spot uhh disappointed a little lol. Although gah I have stalled it like a dozen times since the fly by wire isn’t as quick as good old cable connected throttles


Do you have the hill assistance turned on? That screwed with me quite a bit at first.

No I turned that shit off, that is for people who can’t drive stick, my dad’s Camaro had it and it was actually holding you back at lights on hills so turned it off on that too.

Ok good. I didn't know that was a thing and was driving it around with it on and cursing the Jeep for being weird hahaha

Nice!  I like how low the winch sits - doesn't block the radiator at all...

Was outside last two days sub arctic temps installing axles on Jeep, did rear axle by myself Thursday then yesterday Luciano came over and offered a ton of assistance to get the front axle installed on Jeep so it wasn’t axleless on jack stands in my driveway. Thank you so much again Luciano.

I still have the stock 30/44 but finally regeared with help of Luciano pushing me to do it and tom for helping do the install and teaching.

Also added hydro assist to it earlier but haven’t gotten to use it.

Now I just need to replace the lower control arm brackets axle and frame side as they are beat to gawk but I have those sitting in Toms garage for a while now.

Just want to drive it and see the difference 3.73 to 4.88

You’re gonna he like a race car off the line with no high end power! 4.88s need 35-37” tires to gain the original power band back. 35” will still be quick! 37” is the real sweet spot for 4.88s.

I have the 6 speed and 35 at the moment so that will be good and I don’t need speed in the Jeep other than like 70-75 mph so losing top end doesn’t bother me

  You are lucky with the six speed Tranny!  My TJ has the 3 speed transmission - so I top out at 55MPH (3000 RPMS) with 4.56 on 35's

That’s odd because Tom has the 3 speed also and he runs 37 with 538 and he goes down the highway at like 80 with no problem
