Yep! The granite is too much fun to wheel. You should come to a run here at Wa$hita. Best trail ride of the year is new years day.

Couple more






And the stupid ledge.

It is a one time shot. The tree doesn't allow you to back up, so make it or winch

She is an extremely sapzzy boxer and this was her first time in the jeep. Started the day with her strapped in, but she went crazy on the first bump and basically hog tied herself in the front seat. Probably the last time I take her.

Couple pics someone posted last night



Was hoping to go back to Wa$hita this weekend, but the wife stole the tow rig. Maybe time to get a truck

Thanks for the reply. Is that outside Farmington? I am just about ready to start making some wheelin' road trips. As usual, your pictures are amazing.

Great weekend at Wa$hita. Drove down wheeled all day and drove back. Only carnage was the rear antirock. With the tires at 4 lbs and wedged against a rock I managed to do this...


I either need to run wheel spacers, or reduce the bend in the arms

Wow. I have been toying with the idea to switch to bent arms. I have tweeked mine multiple times but nothing near that bad. Good job sir.

You have racelines right? Should have plenty of back spacing with those. Must be the extra wide krawlers and the initial position you placed the arms didn't clear fully.

Pretty impressive though

I am just glad it did not rip a hole in the sidewall.

I run the allied Rockathons. But I am pretty sure they are 3.75 BS.

I had the rods run as close to the springs as possible and this is what they looked like after SMORR.



Any suggestions? I am all ears at this point
