Looks great. I used to run those trails in my YJ before moving to Missouri this year.

I miss the wheeling in your part of the country. I don't necessarily miss Tucson, but the weather and the wheeling out there is outstanding.

i can hardly imagine living anywhere but the southwest or colorado. the idea of having to only wheel in small private parks or know people with land scares me. i know it's the future for even here as we become more populated and developed.... but for now i'll keep on enjoying all these great trails!

I'm going to be painting the underside soon too, yours looks amazing. What steps did you take to do it? (Taping off body, springs, shocks? Metal prep, etc.)
