yesterday i called IcelandOffroad.. found out they are located 15 min away from me.. just other side of the valley.. the guy (sounded like he was in charge of the place, dunno tho) told me that they were finishing the fiberglass in the mold on saturday.. so this coming week they are SUPPOSED to pull it out of the mold and mount/fit and paint it..

then the cool part.. he's gunna call me up to come look at it and tell them what i think ya'll will like and dislike. SO far all i know is it's similar to the zj bumper but more "round" to fit the style of the WJ. Which i'm sure we all figured. It also has 4" fog lights molded into it. Well i'll update everyone when it's done and what i think bout it (they said no pictures... BLAH!) but hopefully i'll get one before they come out to "promote it" ha ha ha i think he said they are aiming for a jeep safari release..

Ha ya! Best part is I went up that kinds steep looking ledge with the scrapes on it. The guys on four wheelers there said I might wanna go to the left so I wouldn't bottom out... Lol I went that ledge way dispite them and didn't even touch or chirp a tire lol it was an easy line.

Great looking ride and a great thread to boot!! I just got my 6.5" IRO and 33"s. If mine looks half as nice as yours I'll be very happy. Just gotta get started on it now. I'm sure I'll do a build thread too, it's really cool to see what the rigs looks like from start until the next upgrade LOL. I think those would technically be called "snownuts" by the way LMAO!!!

John, it's been awhile since you've done anything to your jeep, why is that?

Put your bacon where your mouth is!

well i took a trip to vegas one day.. like last november.. right after the lift and tires... and the power steering pump just went out on the way there.. it was bound to happen.. the pressure line was leaking back like march 08', and i was dumb and didn't keep it full.. it wore it out a bit..
Anyway, it kinda works.. as long as i'm rolling its fine.. but off road it's a PITA to try to get my tires turned sometimes when stopped on an obstacle.. i can't wait to get it replaced.. it'll make wheeling a whole different experience! lol

okay i just got home from another epic Easter Jeep Safari in MOAB!!!!

I learned two things this year...
1- My Jeep is too small... lol everyone was rollin' at least 37's down there this year.. put jimmer to shame..
2- your driving knowledge / talent is more important than how big your rig is.. I put a bigger WJ to shame when he backed off an obstacle and i walked right up it after his attempt...

my crew mainly does trails at night during safari since the red rock association has groups on the trails every day (kinda like how Grand Slam West "reserves" trails..)

We tend to spend time night wheeling, partyin' lol, and sitting at potato salad watchin people roll rigs lol...

we did get a few day runs in tho..
here are some actions shots of my WJ Jimmer
