The Christmas Tree

Christmas is a beautiful time of year, our hearts are full and our homes are decorated from top to bottom with lights, garlands, peppermint sticks and grandma's antique ornaments. But have you ever thought about the cost of all this grander if you were starting from scratch? 

An artificial tree can cost $799 for one of those new ones that have realistic pine needles on the ends... Don't get me wrong! They are pretty cool... However,  the cool new needles are usually only on the outer most limb and the old common old fashioned kind are everywhere else... I would have liked the new needles all over... Especially for that price... But it is pre-lit so that is good.

To cover the tree with ornaments, it cost about $350  for a number of soft plushie woodland creatures, bronze bells, burlap ribbon  and a beaded garland... Too cute and kid friendly 

And then of course, the presents! Wrapping them in paper to match the tree is a lot of fun, however many of the super cute wrapping papers can cost  $5 to $10 dollars a roll... In the end, we just Put the last few gifts under the tree unwrapped... Don't judge...

We Build the Ultimate 4x4

We review some awesome 4x4 parts for your Jeep!

Rock Krawler 3.5 Rock Racer Stage 2 Kit:  We loved reviewing this kit.  It transforms your Jeep into a 3-link front and rear with coilovers and external adjustable bypass valves.  This suspension allows for up to 14 inches of travel allowing you to clear very large obstacles.

Nitto Trail Grapplers:  We really like these tires.  They are quiet on the road and a monster on the trail.  They have an extremely strong reinforced side wall for the toughest trails.

Hutchinson Beadlock Rock Monster wheels:  These beadlock wheels work tremendously well.   We tested these wheels by deflating our tires down to 2psi on one of the toughest trails in the South East.  
Stay tuned for more updates and long term reviews on the awesome Jeep build.
