Stretch Jeep to 110" before Colorado trip, check.
Some of the guys I wheel with saw a 103'' wheelbase LJ doing it last year. I couldn't even imagine doing it in mine. It's a make it or roll it deal from the looks of it. If you slide left or right..you're dumping it.

Awesome Trail shots. That is how all trails should be explained. And if I ever get out there, you could probably talk me into trying Cleveland Rock with a good spotter and a lot of winches on hand to save my a**

If it was dry...I may have put the front end up on it but I doubt my rig could drive it.

You have to fully commit once the front tires hit the slab.

Only two answers after you commit... make it or not.

Very true! I would feel safer with a better cage and no doors or top just in case the Jeep did go over.

Great pics. I love Holy Cross trail. The first time I saw Cleveland Rock I looked at it and just said no. The second time I drove it up the right side but it is a monster.

I would try the right side if it were dry. Wet seems impossible.

Thinking about a Poly Performance cage down the road. First its getting gears and RCV's. Once the 35's sell, I'll find some 37's and some 17'' wheels.

Then I can't stop thinking about going either 2 routes with the Jeep.

1. Rock Krawler 4'' stretch long arm.

2. Genright/Poly 3/4 link long arm and modular under armor.

I've been looking at going with a hood hoop in the front and can't find anything that will work.

Mainly looking for something that will bolt on top of the Savvy front bumper. Any thoughts?

I doubt you will find something that will bolt onto the Savvy bumper. All the ones I've seen weld on.

Are you tying it into anything or just adding the hoop? I don't think those hoops really prevent any damage by themselves.

I don't know of a bolt on one. But lots of places like genright and bluetorchfab sell pre bent hoops that could easily be welded to a flat plate with some holes that could bolt onto a couple of the factory frame bolts

I know Currie and Genright use to make one that used the winch mounting holes in the frame.

I'm not tying anything into it. As far as looks goes, yeah it does look good and I hope I never use it. It's kinda like a very nice roll cage. I hope I never have to use it.

That's what I was thinking. The pic of the Jeep that I posted has his hoop welded to his winch plate.

If you cant find what you want I could bend you one up and weld tabs on the bottom . You would then drill the holes and bolt it to your frame.

G I might take you up on that.

Shop you a PM. I'd like to see something like the Currie design that uses the existing frame bolts and possibly allow the factory tow hooks and fog lamps. I know...it's getting crowded in that area.
