So our group only got 2 pics of my truck as I had to leave way early in the day.






The last picture is of my buddy's WJ It has the IRO longarm kit and 5.5'' springs. It is very flexy and he always looses a spring in the same spot. About time for limit straps.

Did you run into any issues with your Detroit install?

No issues really. Pretty straight forward. The only issue that i have/had a hard time getting used to is the movement in it when you put it in park. It's not a backlash issue but actually a little play in the locker itself. I have talked to alot of guys who run them and this is a common issue with it.

I really like the traction of the detroit locker on the trail and on the road it handles really well, very predictable. The price is right also.


Are you getting one or just out weighing your options?

Well this thread really got pushed to the bottom....

No mechanical updates.
Through out my recent wheeling trips i have really exposed a week charging/battery system. The PNW has been hit with a considerable amount of snow and i have been using my RECON winch quite a bit. The Synthetic line is just awesome, so light and easy to handle with regular gloves or even bare handed.
I am going to be changing battery. Under a super short winch(25-30secs) it will drain my battery and strain my alternator.
A Sears DIEHARD platinum is in the future, built by odyssey and the group 35 has 800 cca's and a ton of reserve tiem it should be great for my uses.

Looking to start my long arm suspension up front over the christmas holiday. It's gonna be awesome and i will be posting alot of pictures of the build.

Here is the Black friday trail run we had at our stomping grounds, Walker Valley ORV in Washington state.

This was the start of the "jeep cross trail" This trail was no joke. I broke a CV style Dana 30 joint(it was my spare) and this really exposed my bad old battery.











The same damn door handle i keep hitting on stuff, Passenger side rear:

How have your sliders been holding up? Anything you would change?
