Well guys... I proposed to my girlfriend over the weekend. She of course said yes lol. I took her flying in my Piper Cub and landed at a friend's grass strip, where I had set up his airplane with a banner behind it. It went just as planned and she had no idea lol. Just thought I would share the good news my Jeep brothers.

...Anyways, onto the important stuff LOL JK. But I do want to personally thank Cypress Bayou Casino for the disposable income I earned over the weekend. The craps table got hot and I profited. Which equals Jeep parts! I'm thinking I will finally pull the trigger on a tummy tuck from UCF. It's been on my list for a while. I may just do the T-case skid now, and I can always add the engine skid later. I do not have a body lift and I like my ride height, so I think I will do the LoPro mount instead. Also, I may ditch my smittybilt bumper and tire carrier for a rokmen(or comparable) bumper plate.

Thanks guys!

Rokmen bumper ordered today. Now....to find some unsuspecting noob to buy my smitty lol.

I may just wait on the tummy tuck since I will do BL,MML, novak shifter all at the same time. I need to make another casino run lol. Also, I found out I cracked me exhaust pipe right before the cat where the hanger is mounted. I must have hit it on something at K2. I may be able to hack that section off and reconnect it, but I'll have to have the hanger welded back on.

I'm honestly not worried about it being on the jeep. The places we wheel are never too far from camp. Or I can throw it in the back. But with beadlocks, I'm not overly concerned.

Hey guys. I bet you all thought I sold my rig huh? haha sorry I haven't been active on here in a while, so I thought I would give an update with some wheeling pics from last weekend. It's been super busy year and a half for me, so the jeep didn't get any attention. I got married as well as my brother and cousin. All of our free weekends were taken up by that and the bachelor parties and showers etc. .

Anyways, I finally picked up a Warn M8000 winch for the Jeep. This was always on my list of things to get and I finally pulled the trigger. Good thing, I needed last weekend. Also, I finally installed the Rokmen rear bumper that had been sitting in my shop for a year haha. I like the simplicity and better departure angle. It was somewhat of a pain to install because of the frame modifications and the mounting holes didn't line up perfectly(the jeep's frame was the probable issue, not the bumper), but not too bad.

Winch on



And bumper


So those were my mods I wanted to get done before last weekend's trip to Superlift in Hot Springs, AR. I have 30+ feet of DOM sitting in my garage ready to be added to my cage. Unfortunately the guy I need to build the cage for me couldn't get to it before the trip, but hopefully in the coming weeks we'll get it done. On with the wheeling pics!

We stayed at Panther Valley Ranch down the road from Superlift. Awesome place and since we had about 10 rigs in our group, we all had cabins next door to each other so after wheeling cooking/drinking/shenanigans was perfect.








Damage: My buddy rolled over a very large branch that snapped and shredded his passenger door. His wife was lucky the door was there that morning. No telling what would have happened if it wasn't

And a couple of short videos of some fun runs

Looks like some fun. I need to get to that place. Also, I want to try to get a K2 run in if you find the time.

K2 is still my favorite spot I've wheeled. Huge sticky rocks make for some fun trails. The only downside is they aren't open year round. Only select weekends out of the year.


Finally got this in the shop- millermatic 211
