Nail in my new MTR .

And the drag link is rubbing the sway bar link. Looks like I have 2 options.

1. Get Mr. Blaines sway bar link brackets and tie rod flip. I wanted to do it anyway.

2. Bend the drag link for more clearance.

I'll probably try the flip and new sway bar brackets and go from there.

Its my favorite trail in that area. The rain made it that much better. Its pretty easy but theres really nothing super difficult in BB anyways. They did add some bigger rocks at the gatekeeper for some more fun though

Why do new tires seem to be nail magnets ? Luckily it isnt in the sidewall , so a good plug or patch should take care of you .

Yep took it to Americas tire yesterday and they patched it up from the inside. Of course after scratching the crap out of the wheel. Lucky for them they are all beat from the rocks anyways and I don't really care.

The guy did say that my Jeep is way too clean and asked if I wanted tire shine. Hmmm don't know if thats good or bad.

Whatever side is closest to Dishpan. Not sure which side is west off the top of my head. We ran it from the opposite way though.

Now Holcomb in the snow would be a ball. And probably a winchfest too!

Got my sway bar brackets in. They look like they will do the trick. Tie rod insert is MIA but I can go wheeling Sunday without that.
