Story time,
I decided to take my girl My bro and his girl wheeling
It went fine until I got to the rock ledge that had been covered in mud, so I tried the usual just bump it.

Instead of hopping up it slid me off to the side so I readjusted and tried it again

doing this in the process


Yes that is a bent tie rod and I bent the actual rod end.

So we fixed that up and here is a pic of us pulling it out.
I had all 4 33s smoking like mofos I am unlocked.





The rock rocks now have a decent rubber coating


Thats the ledge it was alot easier in the dryer morning. It was raining while we were wheeling so it was just bad.


poser shot




Hatch love


Door love


Rocker love


Out of the woods.


Lesson learned
Never take girls wheeling in the rain.

I was climbing rocks at bantam this weekend and didn't bang off the steering linkage once.

Luke needs to get a giant skid/bumper combo like ididiesel has.

Hitting the steering in rocks will bend it, but I've seen more stock tie rods bend by being under the stress of big tires. Hell, I've seen a set of 32s and a front locker turn a stock tie rod into a pretzel with ease wheeling in a decent rock section.

There were a few oh **** moments on drop offs, but I pretty much walked through it, and the "beginner" course for the rocks was a joke, I have a video of my XJ going straight through that.

So far it's looking like a hiem steering setup and a set of 35 boggers

Plus I got more metal for my t case skid
And a front diff guard may be a reality

Hitting the stock steering on a plastic trash can will bend it.
