Alright...the jeep is dialed in for the trip. Got it on the fork lift and checked everything out. I may have a little bumpstop issue though(need a little more). I may try to address it this week if I have time or I may just leave it alone.

God I love Rockers. I cannot wait to get me a set in the 35x12.50 variety. Those look bigger than 35s on your rig for some reason.

I must agree! They measure true and look extremely aggressive. I think they look even better in person. Not to mention how well they perform in the rocks. I couldn't be happier with these things.

In other news.... I'm dealing with this right now lol

Hopefully it doesnt hit PA till after the holiday! I want to go wheeling all weekend and rain sucks!

Back on topic, how much total lift and what is your bumpstop set up for those fenders and those tires? I am trying to debate on highlines or not to run 35s and am thinking it never hurts to have more clearance but at the same time highlines with too small tires just looks goofy. Thanks!

I am currently running a 4" pro-crap lift the PO installed that is in the process of getting swapped out for better parts lol. NO body lift on this rig. Like I said above I need about 1 more inch of bump stop to be safe in the front I believe. I measured what I have now and it is a 3" bump stop. There is currently about 7.25" between the bumps right now so that would still leave me with plenty of up travel. Also, I am running 35" rockers on 3.5" backspacing.

Well due to Isaac, we decided to call an audible for our trip this weekend and head to Hidden Falls in Marble Falls, TX instead of battling weather all weekend in Arkansas. It sucks because I was really looking forward to this AR for a while now, but I'm still pumped to try out the new mods on the jeep. We will be leaving sometime tomorrow

I guess we're not that hard to miss lol. Wish we could caught up and hit some of the trails. We had a pretty good time! Did some fun trails, some I had never done before which is always cool. Also had some pretty decent carnage lol. My rear trackbar bolt punctured a hole in my gas tank I was able to use some gas tank repair putty from autozone to plug it up and get it back on the trail the next day. Also my lower rear driver shock mount gave me issues both days...The stock mount is so bent up I cannot legitimately mount the shock relocator properly and it just keeps getting broken off. I am thinking I will outboard the lower mounts and get them out of the way of rocks and such. I was really happy with my rear locker and Antirock. Definitely noticed a bump in performance from those additions.

We really screwed up and didn't bring any cameras So we don't have many pictures but here are a few

I saw you and thought "wait a minute...," just got my phone out in time to snap that picture before you hit the turn. You wouldn't want to wheel with me on Sunday, the jeep was loud with out a muffler.

Pictures wise, I jut use a Iphone. gets good enough pictures
