After owning all Toyotas for the last 13 years or so I finally seen a jeep that caught my eye. Told the wife about it and she went and got it for me. I've been wanting a personal vehicle that the family could do some light trail riding in. 2011 Wrangler jk. 3.8 V6 and 6 spd manual. I'm in love. Can't wait to put my touches on it

Tie rod is next. Gotta Rheem the steering knuckles. Maybe this weekend. Def solved some issues with the new track bar though. Oh yeah. And finally put the right shift knob on. Was very confusing as to why they had the wrong one on in the first place

is it bad I am more intrested in your avatar? 🤣
😂😂Was waiting for some to comment on that. Recently got back into rc crawlers with the kids. Used to build a lot of em when I was younger. Maybe I can apply the knowledge to the jeep soon. Crawler in a avatar is pretty modified as a scale trail crawler

To be honest, I did not realize that was a thing. I will have to go down the YouTube rabbit hole and check it out. Had a traxxas long ago, basically it went like this…run it wide open , crash and repeat. Was a lot of fun though. :ROFLMAO:
 
When you mentioned Dodge it had me thinking about something with a granny low gear. Funny that this Ford listing popped up. My wife and I always marvel when things show up that we've talked about (obviously the phone is listening), but this one was just in my thoughts! They're taking it up a notch. 🤔
