All that being said, I can't wait to go back there!

You got that right! I haven't been out too much with it there but this time it took the biggest beating. I'm not sure if it was Carnage we were on or not, but I believe it was part of the red trail that took it's toll. The only other GC in our group,which was a WJ on 3" IRO and 32's got high centered in there and I thought for sure I was going to get hung up too. We've never went that far before until the other day because there was never enough of us if one got stuck, but on Sunday we hit a good portion of the park, I think 16 of us in total. I got my diffs hung up a few times and had to get tugged out once. All in all with my setup I kept up with the rest and I'm pleased I made it through. Just afraid to wash the mud off and see all the bumps and bruises lol. Definitely thinking about bigger tires in the near future now....I love my Duratracs but would like a little more clearance.

Oh yeah and those mirrors are amazing....I thought for sure I was going to snap one off a few times.

I really want to try it again now that I have my locker and additional armor. I'll stick with my 31s for now. I love my Duratracs too. They're great tires.

Odd. Considering the other numerous things he could have actually given me a ticket for lol I hung the warning on my wall, to remind me hat I live in a redundant and boring small tourist town.
There must be no crime going on in town

My Hunter Green ZJ is covered in all-natural pin stripes.

They call it "Character"!
Well, I do have a nice scratch that is fairly straight down the drivers side

I need to invest in better tyres, highway ones aren't great in mud, except they are thin and do dig down to the grip below the slushy bits.

Picked up my wife's ZJ from the shop.
New fuel pump, fuel filter, pump relay, and labor: $516...
Almost worth it because I didn't have to deal with the 15 gallons or so of gas that was in it...
I'm not a fan of dealing with gas tanks and related items.

I prolly woulda cut the floor out above the tank with my grinder, changed it all out and polyurethaned the floor back in place and called it good!

Changed the oil & oil filter, re-torqued rear LH lower control arm. Hard to believe it's over 4,000 miles on the ZJ since I've had it. 3,000 miles on the lift/shocks/suspension overhaul, exhaust and other repairs. I also replaced my sagging drivers door a few weeks ago. A very nice daily driver!
