What corners are those? And do they come cut like that? I like em!

they are rokmen aluminum corners - I bought them off of jhendrix, he made the cut



spent the weekend at the badlands - pretty much beat the **** outta my jeep - broke a ujoint and snapped a d30 short side shaft, its one of the gnarlier axle brakes I've seen, snapped it right behind the splines (hoping the splines arent stuck in the carrier, pics to follow later) Also my front dr. tire wont hold air - I spun it on the rim and got some crap stuck in there, aired it down further and washed it out, still wont hold air. Hoping I can take it off the bead and reseat it and be good to go....we'll see

Almost flopped it....twice, well once I was on my side, but luckily a big *** rock was keeping my somewhat up right - I am not impressed with my tires at all, I feel like they really made **** more difficult because it was a little bit wet this weekend, stuff I usually walk right up I had tons of issues with - it really seemed like everyone had more issues, the obstacles had changed A TON from june - but I was watching all the guys with MTRs (new and old style) walk right up **** I had to get on the throttle for....

Boom goes the dynamite!


Man that close flop on Red Trail was interesting to watch. I'm glad you didn't go over as my Jeep was right behind you. Now go get yourself some tires!

Lol the hatred your jeep has for the Apex editions is pure evil. I love it.

I'll get my pics up by the end of the day...hopefully.

here is where the fun began, well round 2 of fun anyhow

theres some even better ones out there, just waiting on them to be posted

I got to go last around this one - the line I had taken every other time i've done "sugar pie" (ya, thats what we named it) was long gone, and I have a feeling the line everyone else took around it was gone after I moved one of the rocks half a foot, you're welcome gotta love nature, always changing crap up - oh and km2s bringing the suck on mildly wet surfaces always helps too

This wasn't wet though, blame the KM2s on Red.

Here on Sugar Pie...well James started the rutting out and thrashing of the trail, and we just finished it in time for you to go.

You are welcome.

just a reference - this was in June, walked through this 2 days in a row, look at the rock in front of my drivers side tire, barely sticking up, now look at the pic I posted above, HUGE difference - it is soo much more dug out, man I love this obstacle

Parts are way dug out...but what I noticed is that other parts were filled with a bit of dirt which made it tricky since we would just dig holes, rut it out and either get high centered or make it way worse for the next guy.

We should call it wedgie. Since everyone gets wedged in there. Lol

::SELLING HALF OF MY JEEP::

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f33/?uid=152304

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

IndyORV- Dick and fart jokes, titties, throttle, flops, beer, tater balls, and good times.

lol, thats not bad either - can I get a couple of votes for wedgie?

wedgie is more relevant

how about sugar pie?

sugar pie, I was pretty drunk and was trying to think of something that was the complete opposite of the actual obstacle
