Did you make it through the mud in the 2nd and 3rd pic?

Looks good...the last pic in the first pic could be a nice background!

It's good to see some wheeling pics from the weekend, I went sunday with some friends of mine...my one friend with an f-150 that has a 3" body and 33"s got stuck in a hole that was up over his tires and about 4" into the cab...so i pulled him out, up a muddy hill and got talked into going through it...lets just say the jeep made it through with ease! The water was up over the front and back bumpers...and this one kid that was with us showed us a pic of a blazer on 38"s stuck in the same hole a few weekends ago when it was less wet out.

Wheeling threads are the best! Nice pics, maybe i'll add some next weekend.

the guy driving it was a goon, we didnt know him, just met him half way somewhere along the trail, he was trying to tell us it had 4.5" of lift on 33" 'swampers'

i dunno who he thought we were that we would be fooled

it was stock with slightly larger than average city slicker tires, basically he got owned slamming his diffs everywhere, and it was scary with him behind me cuz everywhere he would just light his tires up to get through anything so i felt like he was gonna fly into me

"thats how you do it in a ford baby!" riiiiiight

That is one of the funniest stories I've heard on here...One of my friends is like that, he bought an explorer and tried telling us it had a lift on it...but it was stock.

Kinda reminds me of what I heard the inspection guy say,
One of the workers asked what kind of tires those are on my jeep and he said
"Those are super swampers Baby"

BTW what size tires on the yj?
