re: I have become curious about the Jeep Wrangler...a friend just got one. - swanny297
I have an 18 JL Sport S - nice upgrade from my 09 JK - haven’t had any issues with it, the 8spd trans is a nice addition. I have a 2.5” lift and am running a 35” ridge grappler. I have JKS quick disconnects on the front and ordered Jeep with LSD which upgrades the rear axle to a D44. I also orde...

To make it easy for materials we double the cost of straw or mulch but that includes picking it up and putting it out (no extra labor charge) most jobs we do are the homeowners ...

re: Crawfish Burner Question - swanny297
I switched this year to banjo style burners. I boil a lot of crawfish each year. I run 80lb tanks and 60psi regulators - my burners are rated at 180k BTU and will bring my 120qts to boil plenty fast enough. They are quieter but still roll pretty good. I found with this set up and jet burners It w...

re: Official Jeep Enthusiasts Thread - swanny297
I know a group from Bayou Junkies was going but agree with all the posts I stayed out due to the rain to slippery. I have a new JL so I will wait until it dries up a bit. The new JL has been great, I live in West Monroe and was fortunate to have Skyjacker put their new 2.5” lift on. It is just a ...

Dropping the chute blocker with mulching blades does a really good job at Mulching maybe not as good as a mulch kit but doesn’t bog down and if it does we can raise ...
