When's the next time you'll be heading west to do some wheelin'? I wanna wheel with you and Kory, I think it'd be a blast.

or lack of flex eh?

here is back when i was running the stock rear bar:


compared to with the addco rear again:


not exactly from the same angle, but you can see how much farther down in the wheel-well the rear tire is in the first shot, and the tire is puckering a little as it still has some weight on it. in the second shot, the tire is off the ground about 9" and is a fair amount further up in the wheel-well. i think if i didn't have a rear bar at all, then in the second shot i would just barely still have the rear on the ground.

I might have to make it over to you then. Just gotta take it easy, until I get the rear bumper and the rest of the body armor fab'd up to take care of the red wagon.

Yo man, here's pics of mine going thru the squeeze, didn't get a scratch thanks to some awesome spotting, and some pushing and pulling....Also Heart Attack hill. Met up with Kory a few days ago, and he told me to take the squeeze slow, and take the mirror off.

Thanks for taking one for the team

Here's the link to the pics

How does the 4.7 HO handle the 33"s? Would you consider your Jeep relatively quick? How about compared to a 4.0L w/31"s? lol I'm considering an upgrade...

hey man, glad you made it with no damage. i think being taller than mine probably helped, and looks like you had some willing helpers with pushing/pulling too! nice job!

what did you think go heart-attack-hill? i was scared sh_tless after watching some fairly stock rigs go down it from the top. then when i actually did it, it wasn't really that big of a deal... all about going extremely slow till you get past that tippy area.

HAH was a joke for the LWB. ABS kept the tires from locking up, suspension flexed great, went down without an issue. All together, it was a pretty easy trail, the squeeze just took alot of help.


...I got by with alittle help from my friends (big UPs to premo for hanging off the bumper, Troy and Steve for pushing off the roof with their legs

did the popular Back Road to Crown King trail again last saturday, here's a few pics from the trip...



sweet new mog we saw on the trail:


the small group, we had a liberty with us that was slightly lifted... the driver did a great job pushing it through all the obstacles with a tire in the air all the time
