Dumb friend of mine got his Honda Passport stuck way out on some powerline trails. He decided it was a good idea to try to blow through a giant mud hole between the two trails. I dunno how even got as far as he did, if I didn't have 33s I'd be rinsing the inside of my Jeep out right now. It's been raining its *** off all week here so everything was thick as hell too. You can't tell from the pictures but it's 2' of mud behind the Honda and another foot or so of water over top of it.

Broke one of my shocks too, damn tabs snapped off of it.

I have, the goofy rollbar ruins it for me.

Replaced my front shocks today and got my A/C working. I'd planned on redoing my rear quarters today but of course my welder ran out of gas working on my bike this morning. Although I'm glad it ran out then instead of halfway through getting new sheetmetal in my wheel wells.

you guys need to check out Sparta NC, independence VA area. lots of private land that many folks will let you on if you just ask. there is a nice camp site on the new river you can drive to with some river crossing fun involved. just look for the beat up POS 4x4s and ask them where they go and offer them a beer or 6 for access.

4.5 hour drive for me and probably 6 for him, there's plenty of public wheeling closer than that. Good to know if Im ever out that way though.

Still a bit of a hike, but better than 4 hours, or 5 or 6 from where you are.

All of which would be near 4-5 hours for me hahaha, after next year I think I'm going to move to Sussex/Richmond area. An hour or so closer at least, maybe more west.

Got my RC shackle relocators installed along with a 1.5" spacer. I swear it went up more than 1.5" all around though, feels insanely tall now and I kinda wish I had 35s instead of the 33s. I'll get used to it though lol

I have no idea how I used to work on Jeeps on the ground, I could never do suspension work on the ground again after having lift access. It's always in the back of my mind what a benefit it is when I think about quitting my job.



Of course I broke the first shock part I touched. Barely torqued it and it snapped right off at the threads. Had to cut the whole stud off and weld a new one on. Luckily I wasn't using one of the bolts from the RC kit and it worked out perfect. It's a damn good thing I can weld or I'd have been kinda screwed.



Anyway, here's how it's sitting now. Doesn't feel quite as wide as it did anymore either.







I was hoping fixing the shackle angle would take some pressure off the leafs but they're still sagging more than I'd like. Gonna have to get my 8.8 finished soonish so I have an excuse to replace them.

You could bastard pack it with another XJ main leaf to help support the rear of the leaf pack if you're frugal and just want function. I used a Dodge Ram Van main leaf last summer mostly because it was the only leaf long enough at the half azz JY I was pulling from.
