Got sick and tired of the hood prop moving around, the plastic bushings broke. So I picked up a Rough Country hydraulic hood prop.

Did some offroading in Miami today! Really looking forward to adding a locker to the front axle!

Just installed the Aussie Locker!

It's a day and night difference with traction while offroad. The clicking is barely noticeable while in 2wd, not as loud as I thought it would be.

Took the jeep down to Miami again. The Aussie locker worked fantastic, no tire spinning at all on the obstacles.





Good shot of the under armor!

There's really not any great places in Jacksonville to go offroading. One of these days I would like to go offroading in Ocala.

I've had no problems, one benefit of having a four cylinder I suppose.

I have a dana 35 with 4.56 gears and a detroit locker with 33's with a 4.0 and i wheeling it and drive it all the time and it is holding up great no issus at all. I have had this set up for 4 years and never any problem, but i will be upgrading to a dana 44 though.

Some pictures from the last week!

This kid almost rolled his jeep during the night. Had no clue about the ditch, the only thing that kept his jeep from rolling was a tree!
