Bah, thats all? Did this one on 3" and 31" several times, pretty easy once I can find the line after every one has dug it out.

with all do respect to jkl,s thread..you wouldnt even come close to climbing that hill jkl did..trust me,,i waS THERE .the video dont do it justice..its slick gumbo clay and loose lime rock and a 4ft deep hole at top on the right that you have to hit..youd need bigger tires and a lift to attempt it..it bent the crap out of a currie(jks)trac bar about 4 inches out..
your video was very cool too..but looks like you just crawled and not reved it to the max to get there lol..if the other hill looks easy c,mon down to the bikini state and lets see you trash your rignot many folks try that hill and many have flipped..its on youtube if you search for it..
c,mon..take e a vacation..im sure you will have a great time here lol..

jkl is still THE MAN till i see diffrent..it made me take the nutz off my jeep lol..

No disrespect to JKL lol, just poking fun. That climb would definitely sound right up my alley, if it wasn't as muddy, there are very few climbs I won't try though, and very rarely do I not make it. An open rear dif and some worn out mudders are the only thing holding me up. Working on a Rubi front air locker for the rear end, and some new 33"s to correct that.
I'll consider that an open invitation to come wheel with you, and my have to take you up on that some time, but it's just not in the cards right now. Just spent a week down in Orlando last month with the family, even spent a couple days up your way, at the Villages, if you know where thats at.

Lol, does traction ever get any better down there? If not I'll definitely need to get some fresher tires on before I try that. Not a huge fan of full throttle climbs like that, don't like what it puts the engine through. but I think I've got a decent enough drive train, I shouldn't have to worry about it breaking too much on 31"s, or 33"s.

Next time your down hit us up. Orlando is only about 45 mins east me. The Villages is just a little south of hardrock were those pics were taken.

Welcome to Florida wheelin, most trails involve some sorta mud or slime. I didnt hit the hill as hard as he did, but it takes a little throttle to make it up the first half.

The other day at work we had to go to a trailer store and pick up a light for one of the guys. Walked around and found some smokin deals on some new trailers, but still a little more than I want to spend on a trailer that will only be used a few times a year. Also found two used 25' goosenecks. I think I'm going to go back and see what kind of deal I can work on the black one.

you know you can take the dually hubs off right? they're just extensions bolted on like a giant spidertrax spacer

You have to change the hubs to SRW hubs and change the rotors or drill out the old ones. I believe the later models have the spacer in them. Cheapest set Ive found was like $230 a piece new. There is an older article on pirate that says you can get them for $185 from six states distributors, but their website doesnt show prices.




Running H1 wheels has some perks - cheap beadlocks and they protect the locking hub. They have a 7" backspacing so it will bring the overall width down some. Found this jeep on pirate with the same set up (H1 wheels, dually front and spacers in the rear).
