In other news... I took the Jeep on its first off road adventure. It drove over just about everything except one stump that my rear axle tube got hung up and my front was in about a foot deep muddy slop hole.
First off here are the diff covers newly painted since I said I'd put pics up...
And Here is the first try at flexing just as a test. Just a little piece of firewood. No real flex but it let me start small.
Here is a creek crossing. I was aiming for that big rock to the right side of the jeep. I dunno how the hell I ended up that far away from it. It wend through the creek bed like nothing.
****ty picture as my phone died...
Here is some real flex. I still have a LOT more room to flex but I couldn't find any bigger rocks that I could actually get at. It felt great to finally start pushing this thing. I learned quite a bit about approaching things properly today and this rock was a fairly good teacher. Albeit nothing I couldn't have handled stock.
That's all for now. I'll be getting some more up soon. and taking this thing up some better trails this weekend. I was gonna take it down to work but I'll skip that. It's such a gas hog now it's pretty ridiculous. Oh well! Time for a big *** fuel cell. Also thinking of taking everything off the roof and putting it inside (for aerodynamics) and just getting rid of my rear seats. They are overrated anyways. Nobody likes riding back there. I'll have to get something for picking up chicks though (yeah right).
