Well it may not be all this fancy switchin axles and installing lifts that I see/read y'all doing but I'm pretty freaking proud of myself for the changes I've done so far to my jk. Especially this weekend, putting the flood and windshield lights on. I've done all of it myself, with some minor assistance, and A LOT of reading here for the wiring. Thanks for all the great write ups on wiring lights, it seriously helped take the "dur dur dur" out of it for me.
My opinion doesn't count for much around here but fwiw...
It has nothing to do with tons, or Atlases, or LS conversions. It all has to do with people that are passionate about their Jeep, this lifestyle, and educating themselves. That includes developing the desire and passion to eventually take a risk and try something new. I love hearing about people taking the plunge [for the first time] and making the decision to do something for themselves. It doesn't matter how big or small of a project it is, or whether it's a repair, a modification, etc. It's the fact that someone decided that they had enough motivation or interest to pick up some knowledge and a wrench and do the job themselves. We all learn as we go and the Jeep community is one of the best and brightest when it comes to empowerment.
I love seeing people who are new to Jeeps start to unravel their approach to modifications and try to undertake those modifications themselves. For some, it seems easy, for others, not so much. At the end, all that matters is that you try and eventually understand your vehicle better than you did the day you bought it. We all add to this community with that in mind. Good work!
Some folks are fine with being screwed over, perhaps finding confrontation to be more stressful than just living with whatever the problem is. These are excellent consumers, manufactured to the finest specifications.
