Went and did some offroading today. Trail was suppose to be an easy walk through so I decided to not disconnect or air down. Had about 3 tricky spots but made it through it. And my friend tried a tricky way in his CJ7 at one of the points and laid it on its side. Winched out with no damage though. Friend does this all the time, I think he gets amusement out of it.

Had a couple passengers get some action shots finally so it isn't just pictures of my friend's jeep. Trails were Mountain Creek and it had some awesome waterfalls, and the other was the Alaskan Pipeline. Not many pictures of this ones cause it was a walk through but fun none the less.

And mods, none of this illegal. I know there is a picture of a cat driving by but that is actually a bypass road that all the trails meet on to go back to the main road. They are still working on it.

Thanks John, it is nice to have some semi decent action shots. Usually it is everybody else's rig who I take pictures of or my jeep sitting when we stop.

20% window tint so it can be easily removed if needed. They actually sold a kit on ebay, don't know if they still do but it comes with the headlight, blinker and fog light. I just used the blinker part.

Hey Grakee, I was just checking out your thread and I couldn't help notice. Is it me or is your steering stabilizer hanging lower than it should?

Yep it does that for some reason.

I actually have the KOR dual SS kit and plan to move it higher. I just got the brackets on Wednesday and was trying to tighten down a bolt on Thursday in 20 degree weather before I but on the new SS and took the old one off. My socket slipped of the nut and my thumb flew into the plastic edge of my bumper.

So needless to say I didn't get it installed and now have a huge cut in my finger. It will get installed soon.

Oh ok...I thought I'd ask because it looked like it was just waiting to be crushed by a rock sorry about your finger...we've all had almost that same thing happen to us at one time or another

Thanks man. Ya, lucky a rock hasn't caught it yet. And this isn't the first time I have cut up my hands working on my jeep, I think the cold got me this time as I usually keep working.

Looks awesome Brian! I really like the 04 Grille along with the tinted turn signals. I might have to do that... Any insight on how to do it?

It's good to see wheelin' pics...I must have missed them before. It seems pretty capable with such a mild lift, and the intact front bumper keeps it lookin' good.
