Glad to hear it's performing as good as it looks
Thanks man, you are doing a pretty fine job of building on your Jeep also.
Your cage looks *****ing and the rest is coming along really nice also.

This the last trail we did has 2 pretty gnarly obstacles
These Jeeps and the Sammi buggy are of friend of mine that ran this trail last year.


I made the trail without winching, just good spotting

Did this one also

Ordered one of these today http://www.ruffstuffspecialties.com/...roducts_id=358

Since on Sunday I started grinding on the rear u joint straps

Also ordered one of these

http://www.ruffstuffspecialties.com/...products_id=87

Since I peeled the front cover back a bit and it started leaking a bit.
That takes care of the 2 biggest issues on my toy, after Sunday's workout

Working my way up upper SledgeHammer, the quality of the video is poor, my buddy was to busy spotting and trying not to fall on his behind
Still pretty cool though

It looks like a great time man I didn't realize till the video that you were rockin' the 2.4l in that beast. That's awesome, gives me even more inspiration for my own 4 banger

5.86 gearing would be awesome, but alas not to be had for the axles I have.
In low range it feels nimble and light on it's feet, launches up ledges pretty good. 4bangers wheel different from the Jeeps with 6 cyls, they have to be wound up some to get places, both my 4 poppers have taken me so far wherever I cared to put the tires lol. My little Yellow one drives well on the street and wheels like a champ too.
