I am going from 33s to 35s and I have concerns about the inside edge of the tire touching the frame at full lock . As the tire gets taller it goes an equal amount forward which brings it closer to the frame right ?

More pics , I missed a day of posting . These are from Zion National Park .



We took these the same day over in Bryce Canyon National Park .


Made it to Davenport Iowa tonight , should make it to Mammoth Cave tomorrow .

Fortunately for the buyer of this axle you are:

And

Wrong.

Axle has been inspected, it's perfect. I would have no issue with someone doing a white glove inspection before buying. Or they could save some time since I already had my builder go through it.








OP- Nice pictures man! I'm looking for a way to get my rig setup for a 7 day wheeling and camping trip, but I have zero storage room with my fuel tank and spare in my back tub.

Mr. G; My wife takes a bit of a dim view of the whole jeep experience--too windy for her...

But after seeing your trip and your pictures; she might just be coming around.

I am so jealous. You should have Jeep as a sponsor--this is what jeepin is all about.
I salute you--if I can't join you.
Stuck in my dark windowless office, wishing I was on the road too.

cheers

Sounds like you need a Jeep tub trailer , or why not take the Hummer ?

Its not too bad , you adjust to the additional noise . When you go through the parks or go offroad with the doors and top off its all worth it .

We are eyeballing a 7 day magazine hosted event () that goes over some serious trails that I wouldn't want to drag the Hummer through.


How many miles total was this trip?

Guys in buggies have done UA in the past. They just strap stuff all over the roof and back.

Winter without a top is much worse; even a mild one.

You get to do ALL of the fun stuff!

If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.

If it is the "one", it happens in less than a month, then not for another year. So you might have time.

I'll second the date thing, I'm think late summer early fall, cooler weather then Moab.

Any color will do as long as its black.

You guys thought Moab was hot? Geez, maybe it's just because I work outside everyday in hot AND humid weather hear in MD, but I think the dry heat out there is comfortable
