The few mud holes were sloppy, everything else was just slick.

I went to Sicily island for the first time in my CJ in December, it had rained the morning before we got there and it was slick! Well everything went wrong and I ended up blowing my motor and trans mounts! Lol it was a blast though, we camped there. I've redone my jeep over the winter and I'm ready to tackle it again real soon!

Been there a bunch of times and am rebuilding now. I hope to have a shake down run in about 1 month? Want to come? You are coming too Crawfish, no choice. Let me know when you and your brother have a free weekend in that timeline.

Yes! Gonna be real tough to find a free weekend until late July but we may be able to squeeze a trip in somewhere.

Man the jeep has come a long way since last time I wheeled it, But i still feel it has far to go!

Hey guys! I know there's a lot of Louisiana people in here so I wanted to try to get this out to y'all! Our club just finished putting together a benefit ride for a little boy that has leukemia. His family needs help paying all the expensive bills. The ride is in June! All the info for it is in the form I'm attaching. Any questions please contact one of the people on the form or me.

Thanks,
Alex.

Thanks for posting. Will share it on Facebook as well. Unfortunately I will be out of the country that weekend but I will certainly send in a donation.

thanks! im familiar with your build too

i was actually curious how your BFG ATs perform offroad? Ive got them right now and eventually will go to pitbulls or creepys but a couple wheeling trips may pop up before i pull the trigger on some new meats.
