FullRetard on JK, need a WJ to DD/TV
As the title states- my 2007 Wrangler X went full retard and even though it has always made it home, it recently had to do so at 30mph to avoid deathwobble... for 15 hours. During that drive wife and I had an epiphany:
We need to start towing my JK.
Once you KNOW your wife WILL do things like ride 15 hours in the Texas heat, in a nekkid jeep, with nothing but a SpiderShade and beer to keep her cool-
you realize you dont WANT her to have to do that anymore. Besides, my first baby is on the way.
I love WJ's and this will be my third, I found a 133K mile, triple black Limited in Arizona that I should be working out shipping details on this week. It is not the HO, but it has every other option. If I dont get that one, then something similar.
First purchase will be the projector lights, along with adapters to put my big, fat mesh center/stainless lip 20x8.5s up under it. Havent decided on tires, though will probably be street flavored ont he 20's and keep the Overland wheels for camping/towing duty... if I can make them fit. I am okay with a 2" BB lift since Bilstien 5100s only come in lifted apps for the WJ.
I will definately add rocklights as once you have had them you cant NOT have them. I might put my 40" bar on it when we go camping, and wire my D2 floods for reverse, but really dont want to deviate from the WJ's lines. That means no aftermarket flares or bumpers.
What I do want is a weight-distributing hitch and an aluminum, tandem axle trailor to haul my JK and my family farther... Like Clayton Lake, Barnwell Mountain, Hidden Falls and the like... while being able to visit clients or bring them to the office in style.
