    Bought a lifted 09 Wrangler X 2 door for a song. They however didn't change the gear ratio so it is in the shop as I type getting that done. I am taking it to 456 from 321. 6 speed manual transmission. Decided also to put the Eaton locker in the front that only locks up in 4wd and a Yukon duragrip limited slip in the rear. This should make it a little beast monster. Lots more to do but a solid base to work with that had less than 32000 miles in it. Winch bumper with rope winch front and rear after market bumper as well as extra lighting. 33's with different mags and the spare as well. Hunting season purchase after pricing side by sides, not only no but he'll no. Admittedly I am having a blast, first Jeep. Pictures to follow when she gets home.

    Picked up the Jeep Wednesday and wow the gears did wonders. Now time for better lighting.

    Bought some hood struts from Hooke Road for my Jeep Gladiator. The plastic holding the hood rod felt like it would break every time I used it. I love these struts, they work better than expected and make it easier not having the rod in the way:

    Red Line Tuning has similar struts. Put them on my 2019 Jeep a few years back for the same reason.

    Yeah, I initially intended to buy the Red Line, but those were $99.95 as opposed to Hooke Road's $64.95. Plus the pieces connecting to the hood looked easier to install, so I took a chance on them instead. So far I am very satisfied.
