    So that is it, i'm selling the KJ.

    I love it, but really lack the power, especially after installing the meats.
    4.7 V8 project was concidered but swept aside because of unpredicted budget and foggy resell possibilities afterwards.

    I'll be missing alot of stuff unique to just this rig.


    And thanks to everyone in this forum, i got alot of useful info and formed many ideas based on discussions and experience of some pals here.

    There's a Yakov Smirnof joke in here somewhere.

    Good luck with the new ride, and keep an eye on those lower balljoints. The KJ ain't got nothin on the TrailBlazer for lower balljoints :eek:

    Ship it to me. :) Forget it, you will probably get a real good money for it over there, or will you? How much will it go for?

    Sorry to see you go Max, but you can stop by from time to time to let us know how you are doing with the trailblazer.

    Why is that?

    It'll go for at least 30 000, since there are no KJs with so many mods and in such good condition here :)
    Maybe that's why it's so hard to let it go too...


    Yeah, thanks, maybe i'll post something interesting!
    Although there's no room for MOABs or Frankenlift under the TB :)

    Max, it's been a pleasure having you and your KJ around here. Also been nice to see that Jeeps live strong all over the planet. Take care dude.

    heck, get an SRT-8 Grand Cherokee and be done with it if you want to go fast.

    It would blow the trailblazer away.

    Sorry to see you go. You had some really unique mods.

    Thanks!
    We've got a strong Jeep community, but when it comes to mods, they are usually done to Wranglers, then sometimes Cherokees and Grand Cherokees, not KJs.

    Thanks!
    I was considering the SRT-8, but i got a great deal on the SS, which was the main point of getting it.
