You should go long arm! I didn't really have the money to buy long arms so I was looking at adjustable short arms which retail $400+ for the good ones. Thought I might as well go ahead and do the LA upgrade for the extra $200 so I wouldn't be waisting money further down the road. Bit the bullet and bought IRO's adjustable long arms. Now I am very happy with the decision I made. Also ads a cool factor to your jeep for having long arms. Rides a lot better than short arms too.

Wheeling season is never closed. Some of the best obstacles appear when the snow hits the ground, and that's when you really get to test your rig. I just change my setup a bit to wheel 365

By far, my best wheeling time comes in the winter, without any changes

I change my wheels and tires for a narrower track. Wider tires seem to slip non stop and get buried

I would have to completely agree! I have a 4" Rancho lift on my F150 with the long Radius Arms, front quad shocks ..etc.. Ride is very nice despite springs that drop less than 1/2 with over a ton in the bed and a trailer attached. It handles like a car, 3/4 ton F250 sway bar in the rear.

I was checking out the Core 4x4 long arm kit for the XJ's future.

Your not wheelin unless you get stuck at least once. But I do OK unless I hit ridiculously deep snow. A lot like mud, keep it moving and don't floor it.

Only place anyone should ever get stuck is mud.

You need to come to the Hell-in-a Valley. You're not playing in the right snow

I agree. When you hit 5-6 ft of snow its easy to get stuck

The Bilstein shocks I have help also. Best riding shocks I have every l ever rode on. Definitely makes a huge difference in ride compared to other shocks.
