    Description: Wrangler Rubicon
    Year: 2004
    Model: TJ
    Drive Train: 4.0, 241J w/ 4:1, Rubicon 44's F&R
    Suspension: Rubicon Express 5.5” Long Arm w/ Rancho 9000 adjustable remote resivor shocks, JKS Disconnects
    Tires: 315/75/16 Goodyear Duratracs
    Other Notable Modifications: M/T Classic Lock Wheels, ZJ Tie Rod upgrade,Wilderness Rear Bumper Tire Carrier w/ Rack, Warn Front Bumper w/ Warn 9.0RC Winch, Viair 450C Constant Duty air system, FIPK K&N Fuel Injection Performance Kit, Edge Trail Jammer, Optima Yellow Top, 60" Hi-Lift Mounted on Hood, JVC Head unit w/ Amp, Sub, and Infinity Speakers,CB w/ 3' fiberglass whip on a Teraflex tail light mount, Mirror relocation brackets w/ modified CJ mirrors.
    Favorite Modification: This is gonna have to be a tie between the Long Arm and Lockers
    Least Favorite Modification: T-Case. I would love to have a twin stick or a 2 Low from Teraflex
    Favorite Trail: I've really enjoyed all the trails I've explored, but if I had to choose, I'd say Eagle Rock because it's so close to home.
    Best Trail Damage: I bent the front of the P/S Fender on a tree when flexing on a rock. I was able to bend it back into place. Best permanent would be all the rock rash on the underside and the rear D/S corner from sliding into a bank. I can honestly say all the rock rash and damage was proudly done by me.

    Eugene is a 1997 Jeep TJ. Eugene started out life as my wife’s daily driver and grocery getter. A mild 1.5” puck lift and 31” Super Swampers were all he got. He was given to me in May of 1999 and work began on him in June of 1999. After countless hours researching the web, talking to other Jeepers, looking, learning, figuring out the geometry, trials and errors, after many, many, … many,….. “ MANY” modifications, he now is ready to attack anything that gets in his way!
    It was small little steps at first, trial and error stuff really. Then it happened, I was afflicted, a sickness my wife says, Eugene went from mild to wild ! From 29’s to 39’s, from factory OEM to one off custom everything. I have been wheeling Jeeps for over 20 years and finally built one that does it all, looks cool cruzing the strip on Saturday night and can negotiate the nastiest terrain in North America. Looks, Form, Function, I wouldn’t change anything, I know every nut, every bolt, every scratch, every dent, every noise he makes is music to my ears. Eugene is perfection in motion!

    I don't know how many people do it, but my main way of browsing the forum is to use a bookmark I made using the "what's new" link, so bumping does help in that way.

    Yep, I just hit the 'new posts' tab, so I never see a sticky unless someone posts on it or bumps it.

    I think I need to test drive all 3 before I can make a decision!


    As long as the people remain armed,
    government knows that it cannot rule over the people by force.
    Those who stand in defiance of unconstitutional laws
    do so out of duty, honor, oath and love of country.
