June 5th you all should come to Gilbert OHV. Its National Trails Day. Get to help cut trails on the expansion. Usually its only the Northern MN Jeepers and TCOR that are making the trails in the park. Come on out and bring some of your own tools or just come to throw brush. Lunch will be offered free of charge from Northern MN Jeepers for all those working.

One thing I can also mention is that this is open to anyone and everyone with an interest in 4 wheeling. Mostly its just the 2 clubs mentioned above that show up and want to work. Other groups are up there but they don't want to work or do anything but ride.

dude im amped for dresser. ill actually have good tires, armor, experience and just maybe the LAs by then. im thinking in the future, building a winch mount on my existing bumper along with going to 6.5" and the HnT, all depends on how my plans go for moving out and stuff like that.

jeep looks good, how sure are you on going to C4C in july? talked to channel 5 and we might have a news crew coming up to film us due to the cause, probably be good IRO advertisement because as i know of now, TCOR and BOR are the only 2 sponsering the event.

I thought mine would be done after I lifted it 4.5 inches, and am about to upgrade the axles, but now I am thinking I want to go 5.5 and 35's, I don't know if my 4.slow can handle 35's even with the 4.88 gears.

I'm running 37's with a 4.0 and 3.55's D30/D35 both welded. Haven't had a single problem. I installed an intake and a flowmaster 40 and it's faster now than it was stock.

Grant, you have your own build thread. Get the hell outta here with your build plans.

On topic. I am for sure going to GSW This year, Darrick and I plan on leaving wednesday morning, in hopes of arriving friday? I am going to try and get my liscense for driving the truck (F350, 42ft gooseneck trailer) so he does not have to drive all of it.

The Bumper is almost done, I made the mounts and welded those on last night, on thursday I plan on finishing it. I just have to trim part of the front to allow the winch to come all the way forward, and then weld the winch plates on, and put some D-ring tabs on the front. Then just prep and paint

For sure man, get her done. I am almost done with my bumper, then I just gotta regear the 8.8, put the Aussie in, regear the HP30, and throw that in. We gotta wheel together in Moab, we have some bada** ZJ's for pics together!

Id be more curious about when a 44s going in the front. Ive seen dana 30s explode running anything from 32s to 35s. My unit bearings were shot after DDing it and wheeling it hard for probably 6 months. Like pulled into two different pieces shot. Can't imagine what the 37s are doing to your balljoints, unitbearings etc.

Jeep looks awesome though, amazing how much you can learn in two years. What are the possibilities of getting the plans for that bumper and getting another set cut? I'd be highly interested in it.
