Thanks man I too like the tan/red combo. I'll have to get those rocker guards installed sometime soon.


Well, today I got the flares all bolted back on. Came out pretty good IMO. Also removed my frame mounted rock sliders so i can sell them as they will be replaced with the new rocker guards soon. let me know what you guys think





And, in the spirit of Today's awesome weather, the top came off for a little cruising around town. Hope this weather keeps up so i don't have to put it back on. Is it summer yet

I go to SU. I'm in rockville all the time, although I'm not always in my jeep. I plan on making that greenridge trip if we ever get some definite dates planned out haha... would also like to hit Rausch Creek with some other RC newbs sometime this spring, greens and blues to start

jeep looks really good however i would take an inch a half off of those flares it will make your jeep i think a lot better looking although it looks great as is. Im currently saving for a savvy gts and some real rock sliders for mine as well, id like to hit Rausch creek sometime in may, with a few guys from here let me know, check my build when you get a chance.

Dude has more than enough room for those tires man. No need to trim just because you had to.

Yea i'd definitely be down for a may trip if funds allow. Also, if it doesn't interfere with final exams. Let me know when you guys decide on a trip

I also appreciate the suggestion on the fenders. The tires actually stuff really well into the fenders though. This pic may help, don't mind my makeshift RTI ramp . This is with the axle sitting on the bumpstop and i can still fit my hands around the tires. If i do something with the flares it will be tube fenders or flat style flares, but i sorta like the look now

I may have a friend or 2 that would like to go to rausch as well. I think we could get a pretty good group together. Have you been before Ravine? It would be the first time for my friend and I at RC so maybe we could get someone that has been before to join the group and show us around. I'm locked up front, my friend would likely bring his cherokee on 3.5" lift 32's and open diffs so i'm thinking a few green and maybe a few blue trails.

im open and i have no problems drop er down in 4 lo and im golden then again i baby the **** out of my rig. I have never been there but from my house im about and hour and half from there. Id like to do the blues and greens there, nothing extreme, just to go meet a few guys and bull**** ya know, but for me the ride there is just as fun lol, providing we have good weather in may. I have been by it a million times but never wheel it. paragon use to be where the fun was at, that was a little over an hour from my house.

Finally got a chance today to finish mounting my new rocker guards. I'm pretty happy with the way they came out. They were a hair short so there were gaps between the rocker and flare that i touched up with a spray can, other than that they look solid I can't complain, sold my frame mounted sliders for $140 and bought these for $110 so a 30 dollar profit on an upgrade
