Bummer you cant go. Maybe one of these Sundays we can head out.

Oh I saw that post for the huge CB run on MJR. Sounds like a lot of fun and I really want to hit hammerdown.

Hammerdown and the lil trail that comes after it are both fun

It would be pretty funny to be out in the back country and see a UPS Jeep go flying by .

Here is something for the high diff clearance crowd, which axle is under which Jeep and what has more clearance.
Did some measuring today and thought this was interesting

35" tires versus 37" tires, all at 30 psi. Stock axles versus versus D60 HP and 14 bolt. Which is which? Where is the diff clearance advantage?









Y'all tell me where the big advantage of weaker axles with less gearing choices is?

In between shooting the bull and resting up from a long hot work week, I managed to sneak a lil tinker time in

Drove my put put out to the trail, had some trail fun with my bud and just got back. Jeep climbs the hills on the freeway ok, the different tires front and back didn't cause an issue offroad so I am a happy camper. Was very nice weather up on the ridge, not to hot and a nice breeze. All in all a great afternoon
