Thanks man, that means a lot. My goal was to try to do everything right the first time, so I did about two years worth of research to make sure I used good quality parts. I didn't want to be replacing things within two years because I wanted to be cheap.

So I went out on some new trails with some friends today, and got stuck for the first time. We found this big hole, and all took turns trying to climb out. By the time it was my turn, the pit was really rutted out, and all the mud was mixed up into a nice mucky mix. I failed to climb out, but was the only rig able to actually turn around in the pit and try all three lines out, so I guess it was a perk to have a TJ instead of a JKU today. I ended up having to be winched out because the mud was just too much for my Duratracs. Hopefully I can get some of the pics from my buddies wife who was our photographer for the day. I will be ordering a CB radio soon, cause not having one when everyone else does, makes for a boring ride.

Here are a few pics from the trip. First pic is when we were waiting for our trail guide (the FJ). Second pic was a good sized mud hole on the trail. Third pic is at the first pit we came across. Fourth pic is me struggling to get out of the big pit, shortly before I called it quits and got winched out. Fifth pic is a '13 rubicon that had to get winched out, and of course yours truely rockin my overalls.

The overalls remind me of the time that I went to get a beer out of the bottom of the icebox and one of the buttons on the side shot across the kitchen.

So I am finally getting around to acquiring a spare tire. Done some pricing, and it's going to be cheaper for my to buy a tire thru AAFES rather than order a matching Duratrac. Having some issues with the discount tire direct website while trying to order another wheel, but I PMed them on wrangler forum and got a reply faster than I expected for a weekend. Very impressed with their customer service, and will definitely do business with me when I move back to the states. As it looks right now, I will be running with a 33in Cooper STT hangin off he back of my Jeep.

You'll like the Cooper's. They are a bit noisier than I expected them to be though.
