One of the rigs I wheel with all the time. 50" AG's on a JK. Kinda makes my rig look puny. Haha

You guys would do just fine. Many of the trails have ways around the big obstacles . Getting stuck is just part of the fun. Making it in and out without breaking is the most important part. Having to winch or be drug through a hole is par for the course.

Turns out they are the perfect length. I am a Walker Evans dealer so i will be slapping a set of nice W/E's on it soon.

I did figure out that a full stuff the coil springs touch the shock body so i will need to make a small modification to the lower shock mount. No big deal. I'm sure i will find more issues today.
Ok, I see . Some walkers would look right on your rig ! I really can see you with some coilovers

Well, we spent 3 days camping and wheeling. Made it through some of the most difficult holes around these parts. Had to winch several times but still made it through. The 44" tires are amazing. A few very minor issues that are easy to fix. All in all a very successful trip for a maiden voyage.

AG's only baby.

2010 JK on 50's. Blue '99 on 37's. Red '01 on 40's and my '01 on 44's.





Baby AG's flexing her muscles.....






Thats one way to hide a 44" tire.
