Superlift park was pretty fun. I've only ran it once, but still had a good time. I would have to agree with the comment on axle work if you are planning on running 35's. I look forward to seeing what you turn her into it. I'm in the process of doing a re-build myself...

You can air 33's down to 12 with absolutely no worries. Ive gone down to 10 as well, but you start losing axle clearance pretty fast with 33s and airing down. Makes a huge difference in ride quality and capability. You don't have to worry about your rims. The only dents I have gotten on my rims have been from sliding against a rock. More air would not have helped me there.

My next set of tires are going to be 37's im thinking. I have axle upgrades though. And I have spent about 5 years on 33s learning how to wheel, and learning the jeep. I suggest you do that. And get all of the supporting mods first. I wish I would have done more mods before 33s. Bellyup, sye/ds, control arms, lockers, skids.

Yeah I'm always looking for someone to go wheeling with. Not sure if I will make it mid Sept or not. I know I'll be at the Arkansas/ Bama game and that is my priority for the month. lol

i would reccomend a front locker over a winch anyday, the locker will prevent the need of the winch in a lot of areas

I somewhat disagree. A locker may help keep you from getting stuck, but once you are stuck a locker is useless. A winch can save your *** once you do get stuck...

I have been in situations before that I would never have driven out of without my lockers, but I also know I would never have thought of attempting any of it without a recovery option. If you wheel by yourself you should without a doubt get a winch first. If you have friends with winches, a locker is a good choice too.

Another thing to consider when looking at lockers is future plans for your axles. If you plan on doing an axle swap so you can run bigger tires, don't waste money locking an axle you are gonna replace.

very true, if your upgrading your axles like you say you are sometime soon dont get a locker for the old axle

just wondering? was your sway bar disconnected in those vids? if not that would help you a ton... and if your goin to wheel be prepared to scratch them wheels, if you dont air down its harder on your axles and drivetrain when you sitn there bouncing over everything..... nice jeep thou
