Not once. I don't drive it when it's wet outside though, because it makes great rooster tails with the tires sticking out so far...
I think the cops have better things to do than to hassle poor broke jeepers :P

Took me an hour to do the first one, then, knowing what I was doing, 20 mins the second...

Last time I saw your jeep, your fenders were in good shape. (mine were trashed already, so I didn't care) If it were me, I'd find a set of fenders on CL that are already beat up, cut those ones and sell or keep the ones you have now and actually make money.
Just my $0.02

We went to a little trail called Riffel Canyon.

Now, I could be wrong, but I think Riffel Canyon is an old indian word for "Jeep breaker"

Here's a buddy in his rock buggy crawling the gate keeper:


Me...


Untill...


But, we used the winch, bent it back, hoseclamped a hi-lift jack handle to it, and went wheelin on Crowbar.

I installed the Currie HD stear kit and took it to a real deal alignemt shop, they set the pinion angles, caster, camber, squared up the axles to the frame, well worth the money, now I can go back to express tires and use my lifetime alignment when I go wheelin and they can get it right.

Cage is on order, but Poison Spyder moved, so they're backed up a bit. should be here in a month I hope.

Custom box for the back is almost done, deff gonna get pics posted of it when I get it in... it's gonna be sick.

Hope to have the box in and ready before next weekend, we're going to the San Diego 4 Wheelers event in Superstition.
