First trip with the Jeep

So the jeep finally made it out of the garage after nearly a year of wrenching. First outing was up to Crab Tree Falls in Nelson County, Virginia. It was a fairly easy trail but it was a good chance to try the new lift and tires out. Here's a couple pictures.

Haha yeah...thats on my list of things to do. It made for a good laugh though because we had a mixed group with us including a Land Rover with skids, customs bumpers, etc. He wouldn't go over the rocks (I guess the dealership was closed until Monday so he couldn't get anything fixed if he broke it). He was freaking out when I smashed my fenders in on a couple of rocks.
