What are you going to do with the exhaust, chances are it will make contact with the rear upper control arms.

Did some wheelin yesterday with a couple friends and guys from a local forum. First run of the year turned out to be a great shakedown run of all the upgrades over the winter. Ran the new to me MTRs at 7psi, could have gone a little lower but wanted to give that a try.

Overall review of the following:

MTR/Ks - phenomenal tire, I had amazing traction all day. Tried several harder lines that they just grabbed onto like spiderman and got me up.

Front Antirock- Compared to past wheelin trips this upgrade was very noticeable. An amazing product that provided my front axle with great flex while keeping the rest of the jeep stable.

Tcase & engine skid- Clearance clearance clearance. Another TJ we were with got hung up on his stock skid a couple times while mine I dont think touched anything all day. Lets not forget the amount of confidence it gave me as a driver climbing rocks and knowing I wont be smashing in my oil pan.

Racelines- Love em, these pretty little things did get their first rock rash but performed great and I plan to run 4 or 5psi next time out.

Rokmen Sliders- Great product, very durable and add lots of protection.

Half Doors- For anyone with Full doors, wheelin with half doors is the sh**, Go get a pair

Now some wheelin pics from yesterday. Short trail but lots of rocks to play on and photos never do it justice.

Nice pics. I ran Mabell a while ago with 33s and no lockers. Can't wait to get back there with the latest upgrades.

You've got a trailer? If so, why in the world dont you trailer your rig to Rausch? I would. Lord knows I have broke enough up there.

And that last shot is a advertisement for why you use beadlocks.

You should, in no way, take any of this personally. It's just business. So to recap, I come in peace, I mean you no harm, and you all will die. Gallaxhar out.

Wow! That place looks fun! Jeep looked like it worked too! Great pics! Those 35" MTR's look massive on your rig.

I am in WM4x4 club, go to properties within the NEA. There is some more fun public trails north of where you were yesterday. Best way is to go out with the club tho, a lot more options.
