From Michigan with love
« on: July 27, 2012, 12:53:02 pm »
My name is Al.  I drive a jeep places that Chris cannot. I am from Michigan, I met a handful of this ruff and rowdy crowd at the united meeting.
I drive a 98 TJ.  It has no lift, no lockers, and no fear.  There is a 6cyl under the hood, a 5spd behind it, and a 231sye at the end.  I've got a d30/8.8 with 4.10s.  31x10.5x15 Goodyear MTR Kevlars.  Superwinch 9k w rope for when I loose my line.  1 3/8, 3/8 wall Dom tie rod and drag link with Chevy one ton tre's for all the rocks I forget to steer around.
I drove it from Conklin Michigan to York Pennsylvania, then up to Rousch Creek, wheeled, then drove home all while getting 19mpg.
