    I hear yeah. I've got a chevy 6.0 vortec (pics somewhere in this thread) and sometimes I think an ext. cab is still too small. I see these guys on a tv show that custom build 6 door trucks and I think that'd be about the perfect amount of space

    Warm weather allowed me to take the roof off my jeep!

    Here it is at work. I took the picture because I'm trying to decide whether to take an inch or so out of the lift.

    Looks good. Mild lift. Why do you want to lower it?

    I need new springs since the rears are sagging. I lost about an inch out of the 3" springs and I think it looks better in the rear. I'm either going Currie/Fox at 3" or OME HD/OME at 2" it's been a couple months and I still can't decide. I think I'd prefer the OME setup so I don't get as much sag loaded but I really like the ride of the Currie/Fox setup at least in JK trim. Both setups are close enough in price that my wallet isn't going to make the decision.

    ===Edit===

    Right now it's Teraflex w/ Teraflex 9550's at 3"

    I would easily take a blizzard over 95 degree weather.
    I hate the heat.

    Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.

    I know the "lift" is popular, but I have NO problems in my stock height Wrangler JK in places such as Death Valley, Joshua Tree, Berdoo Canyon etc. (and I'm old so I also have mudflaps on all 4 corners as well). One less modification is one less thing to go wrong, or compensate elsewhere for....just my opinion but I like to keep it simple and its pretty effective as built.

    For the record I think yours looks great as pictured however.

    Many people think a "lift" is required but don't see that it isn't always necessary. Getting larger tires under the vehicle that allow for greater ground clearance is what is important in off-road vehicles. I run 35" tires on both of my Toyota's and have no more than maybe 3" of suspension lift on each of them. The new suspensions allow for clearance of those larger tires and provide better articulation of the suspension on uneven terrain allowing me to keep traction as much as possible.

    So if your JK works for you then don't change it until you feel you need to.

    Yes, agreed and the tire/wheel combo seen in my avatar is no longer the same, upsized those like many people do but to each his/her own re: a lift.

    I suppose a lot of depends on what type of off-roading one does.

    Germany Chris: my son is stationed at a different post in Germany and we noticed a few diesel engined Wranglers when we were there recently. Do you know or Jeep with anyone in these Euro market Jeeps?
    Any hands on experience or first person observation on these?

    Would be nice if Fiat Chrysler offered diesel Wranglers here in the States.

    A diesel jeep would be awesome! But I do believe there's been some people who have put an older 4bt Cummins in wranglers before. I have no idea the level of difficulty, but if you've got the money, hey any things possible. Personally I'm excited for the Wrangler pickups that have been spotted test driving!!

    I know someone with a diesel JK but I don't wheel with him. The only German I wheel with has a Diesel G-Wagon on 37's. If that Cummins kit is available when I get back to the States that is the next big project for the Jeep IMHO there is nothing more perfect that a diesel TJ.

    Cool video. (That could be any desert around my neck of Inland So-Cal for all the rain we've had this winter)
