Going wheeling tomorrow, hope to test the jeep's new abilities and see how she does when I can air down and really get traction. Here's some flex shots and pics of what I did today:

RCVs installed


Found a new spare


Flexed it out to see if it rubbed really bad, and it doesn't, just the tip of the rear flares. This is with the front sway bar still attached

Yep, username Skribble on RCCA, don't remember what I used on RC Monster, lol. Knew your name looked familiar.

Went wheeling for the last time until mid next year...bent the stock tie rod but overall did well. Need to get started on the stretch and suspension when I get back and also try to get some lower gears to tackle the rocks-

Then there's my rig, which is pretty small on 35s


A couple big buggies showed up and wanted to run busy, so we followed them to watch the show!






snow on the ground at elbe



The red cruiser had a log shove itself between the front axle and frame, taking it out of the game


The other red rig was on 2.5 rocks and had hydro shocks and steering, very cool rig! He was only running 38s so he couldn't get up the first big hill


Said hill that also denied Darren both days. Both guys gave it hell though!


My carnage from the day, had to take it off and bend it back. Not sure when it happened but I was just waiting for it to bend all the way since my last trip.



Here's the vids-

All of these are in 720p if you want to watch them in HD!

Well I went to Evans Creek on black friday, it was awesome. The RCV axles held up great, no problems at all. I literally flogged the Jeep hard on a few climbs, bouncing off the rev limiter and overall giving it all I could to get up some snow banks and slippery trails. Snow makes things slick! It was one of the funnest trips I've had since I bought the Jeep, can't wait to get back and go wheelin again.

Here's some pics of the trip-

Little brothers tagged along and made a snow fort while we waited for the other guys to show up. We had a pretty awesome snowball fight.


Dad got his *** kicked when I started to air down...haha

Helped a local club guy that we knew, he wedged himself good and about 1 more foot forward and he would have been in really bad shape.



Good winching job got him out of that bad place


Luckily, little damage
