    Towing a Jeep Question

    I'll probably end up towing the Jeep to Colorado instead of driving it. My question is - once I put the T case in neutral I should be able to tow it with two or four wheels on the ground WITHOUT ANY DAMAGE right??? Thanks

    Front Diff Protection - Anyone Use These?

    Just wondering how important or needed is protection for the front diff if you are not "rock crawling"? Is that a common area to BANG out on the trails? Thanks :wave1:

    Post Lift Question

    This is one of those good news - bad news things. The good news is the RE 3.5" lift is on. The bad news is I have a bad vibration coming from the T case area (I think). I pull out into the alley and didn't even get up to 10 mph before this vibration starts. There is about 1.5" of new shinny...

    No Rear Sway Bar?

    I'm installing a RE 3.5" lift and when I got to the rear, the instructions say to remove the sway bar and that it will not be reused. Does this sound right??? Thanks, Michel :wave1:

    Shock Boots?

    I tried a search and found no good answers. So are the shock boots important or are they there mostly for looks? Rancho 5000's - if it matters. Thanks, Michel :wave:

    No Jeep, but looks like fun

    Do any of y'all watch CMT (Country Music TV)? If so have you seen the Redneck Girl video by Grechen Wilson? Man is she HOT! It shows her out playing in the mud in a pretty cool Chevy Truck. I know it's not a Jeep but with Grechen behind the wheel, it's got to be fun :D

    Elevation effect on performance?

    My XJ is a '92 with 4.0, FI & Auto. Where I live in North Texas the elevation is about 600'-700' above sea level. I'm plaining a trip to Colorado where the trails will be in the 10,000'-11,000' range. My question is will the computer compensate for this big difference in elevation? Also...

    Rigid Front Bumpers?

    What are some thoughts on the Rigid Products? I'm looking at their front bumpers and rock rails. I talked to Terry today and it sounds like he knows his stuff. But would like to hear from y'all. Kind of in a hurry to get some ordered - I have to have the goodies installed for the NAXJA...
