I hate you for where you live. Both of you. That is all.

I will try to do a write up. I don't plan on cutting the skeleton when I do it. I think I can avoid in that position. I might do it tomorrow if I'm not bring lazy on my day off.

Went to Moab this past weekend and meet up with some JF people. Had a blast! Ended up running Hell's Revenge, Potato Salad Hill, and Kane Creek. Some photos from the weekend.

Hell's Revenge

I have never run Kane's creek, jealous. It was great wheeling with you again, you're a great spotter!

It is pretty tippy. I would consider it worse than tip over challange or do tip over challange about 5 times. Wouldn't have been bad if I had installed my swayloc. It is awesome once you get to the canyon floor and it is cool and you splashing through water. Like nothing else in Moab. Maybe we can do a trip in March or April sometime.

And Will, if you want a rear bumper like ProtoFab, I should be able to get one built and you could have it built to your liking. Probably be a bit cheaper or atleast you could decide on how you wanted to look. Maybe this winter once I finish mine, you could see how you like it. PM if you want to talk about it or send me a text.

Thanks. They have been taken a beating lately. The outside ring makes contact with rocks a lot. They have definitely got used this year. I wouldn't recommend them if you want your wheels to look perfect. Once I clean up the jeep, I will get some photos of them.

LMK when you plan on heading back in the spring. If I can break away, I will join you....as long as it isn't over EJS that is. I think this year was my last trip over Jeep Safari. Too many people, you can't run the trails you want to.

And regarding the bumper, I will send a PM.

It's 24 bolts. No problem losing any air at this point. I go out once a month with a torque wrench and check every bolt. But that is just part of owning beadlocks.

As far as balancing, I have 8oz of balancing beads in each. Now, let me elaborate on the balancing. My jeep has only seen very little road use. It gets trailered everywhere so I have no clue on balancing at high speeds. I have gone 60 before and everything seems good. That is the most honest I can give on balancing.

With that being said, my plan this winter is to get my jeep drivable for long distances again. When I researching beadlocks, I found that balancing these along with many others was very doable so don't get discouraged about balancing them.

I have 8psi in them most of the time. Sometimes I put more depending on the situation.

i picked up a set of 36 bolt beadlocks. ive heard about airsoft bbs in them to balance, but i havent actually heard how well it works.
