Keeping it allows me to keep other things..... Basically if I decided to run no track bar, my entire rear link set up is getting scrapped. If I decide to keep it, it can all move back as far as I stretch and be just as it is now. And it seems to behave fairly well. I'm about 50/50 on what I think I'll do. I think funds will be the decider when I get that far and how soon I want to go wheeling.

Had a great independence day. We did the parade again and had a huge turn out with 14 vics.


Got our stack up to 5 jeeps


Went for a trail ride afterwards but since we've been getting a fair amount of rain lately most of it was washed out making it difficult to climb even the easiest obstacle. I got some trail damage as well, it pretty much ruin the rest of the day.


After four years I finally damaged my rocker panel . I did it on an obstacle I knew I shouldnt have been on.



Its not terrible just a little upsetting. Time for rocker guards

Not sure so many to choose from any good suggestions. Not much real difference between most products so I guess price and reliability are what I'll be looking at.

I like the Rokmens as they have the 45 at the bottom and multiple mounting points . I made a lot of my stuff , but the Rokmens were worth the money to me .

I knew those rockers day's were numbered! Sorry that happened though. Mine look about the same underneath if it makes you feel any better.

Tell me about it Nate my luck was running out after going so long without damage. Funny thing is it happened on an easy trail on an obstacle that was out of the way

Ok so after some thinking time I've decided to go with Moab Fab's rear corners with 6" is stretch but I need to figure out a place for my fuel bezel.

Option 1: Adjust the hole slightly from the stock location keeping it on the drivers side.

Or....

Option 2: Perform the YJ fuel bezel mod. Get a YJ fuel bezel and move it to the rear where my license plate is.

Art, these are going to be custom made for this amount of stretch. I may be able to have a bezel hole made for either location depending on my choice in the end I guess.

Sometimes I over think things and make it a bit complicated
