4 1/2 weeks????? Wow, that is crazy. I wish I had that much. Let me know if you make it out.

Mine looked fine on the outside, but was terrible inside. At 117k, it was time. In fact, it had the numbers 06 99 next to the chrysler symbol. This must confirm that it was factory.

We went down to Moab for some wheeling this weekend. I had to test the flex and trim a bit more the night before we left:



I spoke briefly with the owner of the trailready rig on the way down, he was headed home. We stopped at the same gas station:


We arrived Friday, set up camp, and headed for the hills. We ran Top of the World. I met Moab4Life at the trailhead, and we wheeled with him. He was a great spotter, and it gave me a chance to test a few things out on the Jeep.

I had some issues with the oil pressure gauge, it looks like my sending unit is going out again... I have a clicking that is more pronounced in 4 lo than in high range. I need to chase that down before GSW.

The top third of the trail is where the fun wheeling was at, below that it was fairly tame. The view from up top was great.









We also did some hiking in Arches before heading home today.

Too funny. I actually posted that as my FB profile pic last night

Mention you are from JF.


Running the mud flaps keeps the sirens out of the rear view. I was pulled over for it twice (both times after ripping them off wheeling). I will make some quick disconnect mud flaps when I build a rear bumper. White Dubs with mud flaps FTW.

I don't know how many where there, but the town was packed with lifted rigs.

I did a bit of wheeling today, I need to trim a bit more for sure... I may move my front axle back about 1/2 inch as well to help with this, I have plenty of room and haven't even hammered my pinch seams over.







Need to trim:

Your wheelin' pics are always so impressive. Where were you at?

I'd hate to have to trim that bumper though. Do you think pulling the axle back a bit will make it so that you won't have to? I guess fiberglass is easier than steel at least. But it's such a nice bumper.

Thanks - I am about 10 minutes north of Salt Lake City, about 4 hours from Moab. These pics were taken at the start of the trails just above our city. Skyline is closed right now though, the water washed away the road this winter. We are all worried about flooding over the next few days, we had over 175% of normal snow levels this year. My favorite wheeling trails will be under slush until mid/late July this year.

I will still likely trim a sliver (about 3/4 inch at the widest point) of the bumper even with moving the axle back. It isn't a big deal, fiberglass is very easy to work with. I had already trimmed a bit, it just needs a hair more.

Sounds like everybody is getting hammered by floods this year,guess it could be worse,could live next to Mississippi river and have Army Corp Of Engineers blow up levees and flood you out.
