No Tech Today...
But i will post pictures of the routing of ARB Line.
Got the HP 30 front in. Didn't have time take pictures but it I figure it is straight forward.
The ARB is flawless. I am super impressed on how it works and couldn't imagine how not to have a selectable locker in the front. It is mindless to work and really helps me get up those ledges.

I haven't had it out a ton but I did take some poser shots.
These really just show what lockers can do for you. I couldnt even get close to getting up this a week ago, now its simple.

Nice! Really coming along. I am pretty close as far as how me Jeep is set up to wheel. Not many ZJs Locked front and rear with 4.56 is what I mean. That front locker defiantly gets you up on rocks a lot easier.


One of my best wheeling co pilots is my dog. shes always out on the trail with me

Good luck and remember to be careful, its going to be a lot easier to put your self in a bad situation with lockers. Keep the Shiny side up is what I am saying.

OK so Went out to our local trails again, Walker Valley ORV park.
We had an awesome crowd of about 10 trucks, the day started with a nice drizzle and ended with some beautiful sunshine.

The Jeep ran like a champ, I couldn't have asked for anything more of it. The ARB is insane simple and awesome traction. IT got me into some situations where i shouldn't have but it was still fun.
A few pics Will have lots more over the next few days.

These are some really sick trails your going on... and your jeep is looking real nice, got some nice flex going on in the front. Keep it up man, I love seeing local ZJ's.

Man we had a kick! Your rig was definitely the life of the party. We need to get my ARB setup, then I will give you a run for your money :-)

Awesome pic's! You got me nervous when you quoted me saying keep the shinny side up , then you said pics to come. Gland It all worked out for you, No flops or rolls.

I think that after wheeling the ZJ locked front and rear, I could never go back to wheeling an open diff 4x4. I swear 4 locked is where the fun is at.

I took a week off from the jeep and it was needed. Let me clear my plate and enjoy Rccrawling again. Which is just a wicked addicting hobby. But Way fun. Whatever.

Last trip I was really Hindered by the receiver hitch. I dragged it on everything and it was just in the way. I had to leave it for a rear recovery point.

So the wife and I were at a garage sale, Like we are every weekend and found a 2'' reciever hitch for a couple bucks Brand new in package.

This was the plan from the beginning but I am happy it fell into my lap for cheap. Here is some pictures. If you have any questions just ask i can always get better pics.

So after I got the rear receiver done, I wanted to start the rear swing away tire carrier.
I came across a killer deal on a DIY4x4 Pivot for a tire carrier. This thing is pure beef. 2.5'' Dom and dual bearings. This is gonna work alot better than my initial plan of using a bushing.
This is all Tacked together so it's easily changable.

Here is a sideview:
Please give me some feedback on what you think.

Lockers are soooooooooo nice.

Thanks man. The guy was not part of our group. Our group is no alcohol on the trails.

The trails are awesome up here. Especially since this trail system is only like 35 miles away.

A good friend snapped some of these photos from 7-24.
This line is super tough, pictures don't do it justice. We had a guy on 60's 40'' tires in a blazer not make it. But the Grand sure did make it with a little finesse. Hopefully someone else got some good photo's of it too.

You can see my tire carrier in a few of these pics. I will take pics of the finished product tomorrow and post those up.
