Well, its what my friend calls me. I'm a crazy Jeeple. :rof

Anyways, yeah I have a lifted 1999 Wrangler and I wheel it hard. I want to get a diesel truck to pull with, but Duramax is out of reach at the moment. However, my friend that calls me Jeeple has one and I will help him work on it.

I'm pretty mechanical, but I need to know more about these trucks, so here I am I guess.

And because this is a Duramax forum. I will post a picture of my Jeep getting pulled out by none other then a Duramax on 35s





For the record, the break (lol) axle shaft EXPLODED at the splines and also killed the spider gears. I gotta say though, I wasnt just driving on this road. I was driving up an old washed out roads with ruts that seriously were up to the top of my doors in some spots. I literally had my Jeep at the top, one wheel on normal road when it happened. So close.



Oh, I usually only get pictures of my Jeep when I am stuck. So, here is one I have when I dropped off onto my hitch and couldnt move lol (because of the short control arms). Stuck some rocks under the back of the back tires and backed out.



See you 'round

Thanks dude.

I6 / Ax15 5speed / D30 front / d35 rear / about 5.5'' bastard lift completely level / 35s on a 16 wheel

Its pending rock sliders and tube fenders. But right now I am building a blazer with the Dmax guy that is a member here. We should post that build too. But anyways, After i broke my axle shaft I stopped wheeling it because I cant not have my DD for a week again. So when I get a second vehicle I can go crazy and get full widths on this jeep and full 1 tons

Thats funny, I guess it was you ryan was talking about. He is like there is someone on Duramax Forum that wants to build a Jeep. I'm like oh well shit I better join and make more Jeeple.
Haha maybe.During xmas last yeat I must have prove a 150 mile radius form my house and still couldn't find one worth buying.I want a 4 door auto with the 4.0 motor Thats all.I don't even expect for it to be in great shape just descent.I wanted it to also be my daily driver.I didn't care about dents,stains,cracked windshields or good tires.Maybe I was too pickey.I also researched putting a small 4bt cummins motor or a VW diesel in it.:gearjamin
