Hell yeah, flareless was ****-ugly! Steering upgrades are in the works, as well as an MML and a front locker. Getting ready for URE again in April

Got on the forklift at work today and had some fun testing flex. Gotta say I'm impressed and really excited that the new flares do not contact the tires even at "high" levels of articulation. Raising the front driver's tire to 40" produced no contact at any flare.

In other news, looking at testing the new installed and anticipated mods at URE sometime early in April. Soon to come is a MML - picking up one this week.

Pm incoming.

Check forum.durtyrok.com closer to April. I'm sure we will have a run planned for then. I'll let you know when we set a date.

Now, of course, I have created a new problem for myself: One of the nutserts inside the frame at the transcase skid. I figure I'm going to weld a grade 8 nut to a grade 8 washer, then weld that **** to the frame. I swear. . . . always something

Gained 1.25 inches at the skid after losing the 40 foot TC drop I had. Couldn't be happier - now I won't havve to hear it scraping, clanging, banging, and scraping on EVERY ****in' rock

Without a tummy tucker you are still going to scrape quite a bit.

Can't be as bad as before - you saw that drop I had. . . . it practically cancelled out the lift

RC arms and disco's are on, along with the Skyjacker Hydro's. First thing I noticed is that the Jeep rides a lot better now. We will have to see how the joints in the RC's hold up though.

Gonna flex test with the forklift soon. Pics to follow!

Coming this weekend when the boss is off. . . . he didn't like me using the company equipment to try to "flip my Jeep and collect the insurance."
