It rides great on road. I paired mine with Bilstein 5100s which helps a lot too. I daily drive it, and it gets driven to and from trails.

I was thinking about RS9000XL shocks.

Haha I don't care Kevin!

Yea Rick I'll hit you up this weekend. I forgot all about that! Beef up the 35 or snag a 44? Either way its pricey.

Everything I've heard, seen, and read about those shocks is good. I doubt you'd regret it. I was told by someone I trust about Jeep stuff that they're about | | that much better than the 5100s. Just marginally.

Here's a few pics from Big Bear this weekend.

Jacoby night run. My girlfriend drove the trail. It was her first time driving off road on anything more than just a flat fire road.


And a Dishpan Springs night run. Reeeaaaally fun!





That's all I got for now.

Not much to update on lately. Just been taking it out every couple of weeks.

Buuuuut, I just got home from the Savvy shop. Picked up my Savvy/Currie steering kit. It goes on this weekend then the Jeep gets ready for a desert run from Barstow to Laughlin next weekend. Can't wait!

Kevin and I put the Savvy/Currie steering kit on yesterday. The Jeep is so much more responsive and the steering feels tighter. No more shaking steering wheel, and now I don't have to worry about it while wheeling!



Now to finish packing and strap everything down for a fast desert run this weekend, it's gonna be fun!
