Out for a Christmas morning drive. Icy enough to make you pay attention:
Got this guy hanging around…..
Another Christmas Jeep Photo:
I have to show off the new wheels. So much better than the trailer mags.
Like those new wheels, great improvement.
What size are the tires?
Thats a great looking combination!
31x10.50x15 tires on 15x8 wheels with a Pro-Comp 2 1/2 inch lift.
First snow of the year!
... Do they use Salt on the roads in E. Tennessee ? If so, please get my most Favorite Jeep inside , Kind Sir.
BTW, Are you almost done with it , yet ?
Lol! They do use salt I’m afraid. But I never take it out on the highway where/when they salt. Plus I keep it in the garage all the time. Just had to back it out for a photo op
Somehow I’m learning you never get finished with these things!
my next project is to order a Bestop for it. Just trying to decide which fabric to get.
Please see my Media here on that, OK ?
You bet. I started going through the Jeep top thread last night.
you have some great photos on your page. I’ll definitely check them out after work.
Really good lookin jeep!
Jeep has been on daily driver duty for the past 5-6 months and has been doing very well with little to no issues whatsoever(knock on wood). Isn’t great with gas mileage but what can I expect lol. Runs down the freeway at 65 with one hand on the wheel and Rpm is a little high at 2800-2900 but that’ll be helped once I get 33s. Although it’s had no issues it is getting ready to be my sole means of transportation without backup from my parents cars as I am getting ready to move out of the house and I am a little concerned about that reliabilty-wise.
Love a white jeep. I have had 3 of them. Two cj-5 and a 64 cj-3b.

What axle ratio do you have? Just curious.
sounds good to me. I've got 32's and 5.38s
I am sure that RPM is fine, it was just somewhat higher than my jeep. If I remember correctly I have around 2400 at 65mph. But I have the factory gears, 3.73 and 30 in tires.
That’s at 65 mph. I have 4.10 gearing and 31 inch tall tires
That would be the sweetspot for rpm for me but I doubt I could achieve that very easily
