Nick if you ever want a co-pilot on a run, I'd be happy to take photos for you.

Anytime man, you will be amazed what the North Shore has... I can go out there anytime I want. Not too many real runs, more just see who down to go or see who's up there, since someone always seems to be wheelin'...

Got the Rigid floods mounted and hooked up.






Easiest place to put the switch with how I route it and just using the wiring harness supplied (no extra length of wires). Works for me:

Hell yea they are crazy bright! I turned em on at 10pm to see how they were, and my neighbor had to come out and see what was going on! Makes the head lights useless to put on during a night run, as you can barely tell they are on.

If I can remember and not too sloshed, I'll snap a pic tonite.

Got the MC rear lowers installed and took it for a test drive...

Man these things have impressed me with the short rip I took up the highway so far! Really absorbs the little bumps in the road making for a smooth ride. Since I haven't really driven it since installing the front lowers the other day, between the two pair, what little vibration/shimmy I had is gone.

Friday I'll see if I notice any differences off road as well, as I'll head up to my local spot. Then Saturday I got a run about an hour away, so I'll see how they handle that as well.

I guess you weren't joking that everyone else has juggys.

Yesterday was so hot not sure how you went out and wheeled.

Were the trails dry?

There was one other TJ on 35's that rode with us. But besides him there were 3 TJ juggys, 2 YJ juggys and a custom buggy that was just nasty.

I had the AC cranking for a good portion of the day, but it was super hot and a lot of bugs out... But the wheeling made up for it. And yea, this place was super dry compared to any other time I've been out there, which made for a better day, as its not fun to wheel there when wet.

Hahaha, don't think that'll happen with this rig. I'd like to add a few more things to it (cage and beadlocks) and then just leave it as it is, and once I have a house start to build a juggy/buggy as time and money allow.

And def a fun place. Its just the backyard of a friend of a guy in my club, 200 acres or so. Not developed too much yet, as we just start cutting the beginning of last year, more of a lot of really tough/big obstacles, but tons of potential for many more lines for rigs more like mine.
