Please don't get confused, I am the better half.

Craigslist lift... 4 door rubicon suspension on our 2 door sport. Lifted the front 2" and the rear 1.5". I don't even remember what we paid for it, something like $100 or $200. It had 700 miles on it. Have a bunch of spare parts now (flex brake lines, control arms/links, sway bar end links, shocks, steering stabilizer, etc). Doesn't look like much of a lift but believe it or not it's a full 2"front/1.5"rear. Has 29" tires now, looking to go to something around a 31" to 33" when these wear out.

LOL,i bet the wife might have a differance of opinion

Hey the lift looks good,and you sure can't beat the cost.
Is it the 3.6 motor ?

Damn that shop makes me drool.

Yep the 3.6L It's really a nice engine, very strong. The damn jeep is faster than my truck lmao. Gas mileage is OK. My truck actually gets ever so slightly better. Should have the jeep paid off in about 2 years, and hopefully we can keep these two vehicles going for 10+ years. I can't stand a car payment...

I do really like the shop, but also can't afford the financial impact or time impact to get it in order and setup how I want. So it's basically storage at this point. I'm trying to make an effort to get it how I want it to be.

You know, I have to mow here WAY less than I did when I lived in FL. I'm not sure why, we get rain, but probably not as much rain. In FL, I'd have to mow at least once a week. Yes, AT LEAST lol. If I waited 2 weeks it was too tall and would stall out the push mower. Another plus here is I bought a pretty nice zero turn with a 20 some hp kawasaki engine and a 54" welded deck. Honestly one of the best decisions I've ever made in terms of home ownership. I can mow my entire property in under 2 hours easy. When I had a 1/4 acre in FL with a push mower it would take me an hr. Plus, mowing with a zero turn is almost fun.

That'd suck looking at the old lady's tailights.
If she's anything like my wife,you'll be getting razzed.

It takes time to get a place set-up the way you want,it'll come in time.
You have a good basis to work with,as it's already got most of the essentials like good power/water etc. already in place.

LMAO,i could just see you on a Zero turn mower.
It hasn't tried to spit you off it yet has it

Getting passed by a Jeep isnt quite as bad as a minivan, lol. When my wife had her 3.6 Town and Country I always said it would smoke my truck off the line. That thing was almost scary being FWD. Torque steer... wow, lol.
