I see you've found the extreme trails in that book.

Carnage canyon is no joke. Very long and very difficult, will easily take the entire day to navigate more then one rig through with damage of some nature guaranteed.

The good thing is chinaman gulch is right next door and is a fun trail to run for the less extreme rigs.

I'll be running right next door. I watched a JK Experience video that had like 22 rigs, but only 5 tried Carnage, 3 made it, all of which had body damage afterwards....here it is:


I was certain I would not be doing Carnage after watching that.

So after your last two wheeling trips. Is there anything else you want to do to it before you start stage 3? Possibly by your Moab 2014 trip?

Jeff, Carnage canyon looks like a blast to wheel especially the latter part should be a blast.

Colorado 2014....but I'd like to get the tummy tuck done, other than that a full on stage three is probably a year, maybe two away, I gotta keep the wife happy too.

I'm good for watching the big boys and taking pictures of them doing it....but it does look fun.

I agree the tummy tuck would help a lot. Keep the 305s and 4.10s. Would you go with savvy when you do TT or UCF due to cost?

I may go with ksilovich as Kevin can build me a flat one pretty cheap and just as strong. I probably won't do anything until spring, but I really hope to get the TT done, with a Novak shifter and a BL....but we'll see. Braces are pricey, and those are draining my Jeep budget at the moment.

Have you thought about just a rokmen 0.5"bl or go a full 1.25"? It would make plenty of room for 35s and still net ya a good amount of belly clearance.

When the TT comes so too will the BL...probably the 1.25" BL. I wish that could all happen right now.

I've been debating buying this: JJ Kit



But really wonder if I'd even notice any difference.

Well, it would complete the package for you CA's, but like you said, probably wouldn't notice much of a difference. Are you sticking with JJ's for the foreseeable future?

Yep. I'd say the main reason I didn't do it when I bought the control arms was because I can't weld. I keep thinking about this mod, so maybe there's something to it.
