Listener Feedback:

Hi Greg and Jeff,

You asked our opinion about upgrading your jeep's axles and tires. In episode 25 you mentioned that there is a kit to make your rear axle full float and your front full float with part time 4wd. I think this is a better idea than spending a lot of dollars on new axles. I would update your axles with the full float kit and run 37's.  You are only losing about 1 1/2 inches of ground clearance for a lot less money. Spend the money on skid plates, Rock sliders and a good winch.

Love the show. Keep up the good work
