Sounds like Matt is going soft. I rather enjoyed your bumper dragging on Golden Crack. It's nice to see a pretty rig keeping up with Matt's junk

Maybe if improved my attitude, I wouldn't have broken two front shafts that weekend.

Thanks Moony, I pulled a lot of inspiration from yours for sure.

I didn't have as much rear flex last time I ran Golden Crack. I installed some spacers to set my rear sway bar closer to parallel to the ground. It had been limiting my droop. I flexed so much this time, that I unseated a rear coil...unreal! I am happy with how the suspension is working now...I need to find time to edit some vids, Thanksgiving+Moab=Awesome!

Thanks for the compliments everyone. I have been thinking things over, and trying to plan out the mods for this spring. Right now, here is my list:

New DOM front LCA's so I can run Johnny Joints on the frame and axle end (Just on the axle end right now. I need to shorten the arms a bit, and these ones are solid stock.
Install Winch (I think I will go with the Smittybuilt 8k w/Synthetic line
Install CB radio (time to upgrade from teh handheld I have been using. I bought one on amazon, just need to install it now.

Sick looking WJ. I wanted to get the Iceland off road bumpers but I guess they went out of business .
