The jeep performed great. Love the tires they flexed great and provided great traction. The suspension flexes great and the anti rock provides great stability and traction.

The bad....the rear bumper is extremely heavy and hit every rock possible.

I also dented the 1/4 rock krawler skid in about an inch total in the middle. Hey People pay good money for tummy tucks.





Also the rubi rocker panels are junk for heavy wheeling. Dented right through the rocker into the tub.



Diff's got busted up good too. One dent was almost through.



Bumper and fenders did their job well.









Three words IM IN LOVE!

Still need to install savvy tailgate skin Egged out the ear on my stock Dana 44 shaft so picked up some barely used chromo's Some random pictures and we should be all caught up. Just to give you a little perspective And a club trip I had to miss out on.

Awesome pics! Where in New Hampshire did you wheel? Ever wheel in VT? I have family up there (VT) and would love to make a trip up.

Thanks! It was a private property associated with NEA. Probably one of the sickest parks I've ever been to. I think I wheeled Vt a long time ago with my xj.

Ordered some stuff for my winter project today......

Which place? Can't quite tell by them pics, but I've been to most NEA spots.

Edit: Nevermind, Gretchens! Love that place I'm heading up there Columbus Weekend, can't wait!

Yeah it's Gretchen's. what a great place. Hopefully the change of ownership goes smoothly. The other pictures of the ride I missed out from was swanzy.

What club do you ride with?

Yea that place is awesome, and you're right, I hope the transition goes well, which I think it should as they are fellow wheelers...

I hear Swanzey is a fun place as well, thats one of the places I haven't been yet. As for club, I'm in WM4x4.

I didn't make it to swanzy but I guess it was a lot fun. Not as extreme as Gretchen's and a lot of stuff had go arounds for the lesser built.

Last time we were at Gretchen's we shared the property with the summit crawlers. Good bunch of people.

Keep in touch we will have to go out.
