First time off road with all my new goodies (with pics)

After a three month crush to get the Jeep done, I finally had the chance to take it off road today. The trails were nothing crazy, but we came home with all parts where they belong and everyone had a good time.

Project list:
  • Prep and repaint entire Jeep
  • 2" BB lift
  • New wheels and tires
  • Brakes
  • New headliner
  • New sound system and speaker bar
  • Fog lights
  • Grill gaurd (had to repaint it as well)

The black on my Cherokee is bedliner material. I am now convinced that I made the right call by doing the lower half with that. Some of the vegetation on the trial was extremely tight and would have otherwise ripped my new paint job to pieces.

The guy with the JK has had the thing for over a year and today was the first time it had ever been muddy. He's now hooked...

About to head into the woods...


At the top of a very steep, tight, and long hill...


Heading home. I know a lot of people don't like the fender flares, but I think it looks good...


We also took a couple of kids out four-wheeling for the first time today. Man did they have a blast....

About 40 minutes east of Columbus (between Zanesville and Newark).

Spent most of the day on a friend's property.

I tried everything I could to get the thing more muddy!!

My Cherokee went everywhere (first) that the JK did - and I slung it around more in each mud hole than he did. It's just that my tires are tucked under the fender flares and his are not.

We had a blast - the kids were all asking when can we go again!!

MY tires are 32s. While we didn't do anything super crazy flex-wise, it did undergo some twisting and rock/down-tree crossing and I didn't have any problems with flexing or rubbing.

I like your setup.. especially with the tires tucked in for the tall stock look.

You sure the tires are 32"? What is the metric size? Looks like 275/75R16
