Lol gotcha. Theyve been amazing, aired down to around 15psi all weekend, they just grabbed everything. Sidewall seems tough too, I got in an awkward squeeze coming down off a big rock where I was needing to hang right. Ended up putting a lot of pressure on the sidewall from a pointed rock and all was well.

I do need:
1:lockers
2:more protection/armor.

Lockers for obvious reasons. Protection because I had to be careful not to slam my rockers and to miss trees on the side. I just ran into **** all weekend with the front but had to watch backing up.

Looking like LCA skids, diff cover, and tie rod need upgrading. All took a beating and a half, luckily my tie rods still straight for now.

Thanks man, it was a nice trip and a good test of the XJ all around. I drove it about 40 miles down there Saturday morning, wheeled all day, took it into town that night for supper/parts for my buddy, slept in it, wheeled Sunday and drove it back on the parkway with nothing but a knee on the wheel. Really impressed with how it performed. Theres improvements to be made but all in all it did really well.

Out sleeping quarters. Rained that night too so I was happy to be cozy inside.


Crusing back mostly unscathed:
