I don't need the strength for running into anything. I don't fly through the woods making my own trail like Rags. I think Rags should invest in a dozer blade for the front of his rig.

I play on the trails, and rocks. Nothing too intense though.

at one point i went down a hill at about a 110 degree angle for 40 or so feet, i was doing like 10 as i approached it because my passenger was screaming he was gonna jump out if i attempted it....

needless to say the jeep survived but he whined like a bitch all the way down

Too many unknowns for me to risk getting stranded by blazing my own trail. Once my rig has an onboard welder, and air compressor I'll be good.

Eh I love snorkels but then again if I snorkel something its going to get used.

A lot of places where I wheel you aren't allowed off of the trail. Not to mention you can get fined if you get caught off of the trail...

Looks pretty good, should have maybe filled the dents first, since it would have been really easy when covering with liner.....

and for those of you that are reading impaired, that roush mustang was done by LineX not Rhino....haha hence the big sign behind it that says LINEX....

Jeeps are like mustangs in forms of addictions, you think you will be happy with a small lift and 31's then you will want more and go 33's then 35's I worked all the way up to 39x18.50 Mickeys and ended up wanting to go 40 or 44 x 18.50 Swamper TSL's I had 38's then 42 x 18.50 TSL' s on my quad cab dodge, its an addiction, like going faster.....save your money and go big to start, the drive shaft thing is no big deal.....



People should think about boarding up their glass house before starting a rock fight!

For me it's about building a well balanced rig. That is decent street manners, good flex, and articulation, low center of gravity, and agood amount ground clearance.

I have 31 and 33 ats and never had an issue. Not sure why people hate on them.

here's one of the seat covers, that's not all of the pockets for it, I just didn't feel like putting every pocket on for a picture shoot.

x2. Automatics have their advantages. I loved wheeling my WJ, but a manual would have been fun on the street.

just an update on the wrangler.....

took her offroading last night again, and once again she proved herself to me, and the owner before me. he never got the car on the road until i offered to take it off his hands, and all of his past wranglers have been highly mod'd for offroading, not near stock like mine. (2 inch lift is all i got going, and a custom 5 year old exhaust.) i got stuck once, that a simple push got me goin again.

my hard candy shell held up everywhere except the plastic, which is what i expected.
