Depends, are you gonna make use of them? Long arms are great but you can get the same ride and performance with control arm drop brackets. Only thing is you lose ground clearance according to how you wheel.

Got some snow this past week. Got a good amount on Superbowl Sunday, around 6". Was predicted we get 10"+ more inches during the week but that never happened. Ended up getting like 3". Damn you Oklahoma!!



Also won a pair of 3x3 LED flood lights. Got those mounted up last Friday.



Should be going out wheeling again on the 23rd and hopefully I can get more shots of my jeep in action.

Also found out that my Radiator is busted somewhere and its going to get replaced soon. Luckily it still holds enough fluid so I can drive around without going over 210. Thinking about getting a triple fan set up as well.

Went wheeling again, like I said. Haven't gotten all the pics from others yet but got mine uploaded along with a few videos.
What all I have right now is the aftermath of me getting stuck in a bad spot. And it was VERY MUDDY! I'll be getting some pictures from the video's I have soon and I'll post them. So for now here are the muddy pics.











And here is after I had got out of the mud pit with no bottom. My buddy had pulled me out of the hole and we got to here before the strap broke; used a lightweight strap because I had went wheeling without any front recovery and thought I'd rather have a strap break than have my axle get pulled out or bent. Had to get winch from here.




And here is myself with my mud covered jeep. I was pretty muddy myself but most of it dried up and fell off, or I peeled it off cause its basically wet clay.



And here is my Youtube channel for the video's I got. Check them out if you want. https://www.youtube.com/user/ZackHst...ew=0&flow=grid

I hate mud. I hate cleaning it too! It just keeps falling when you think you got it all.

I honestly cringed when I got out of my jeep to inspect everything after I got unstuck. I knew what was ahead of me.


ITS CLEAN! Well the outside is. I got most of the mud off of the exterior and underside. All components cleaned up as good as I can get them. Gonna shine them up tomorrow. The inside is still dirty. Gonna clean that up tomorrow too.
All shiny now.

Nice on the cleanup! I find that when I get mine muddy it takes 3 or 4 washes before it even starts getting real clean again. Mud finds the craziest places to gather lol.
