Love desert stuff. That tire carrier is real slick. Wish there were a way to do that on my XJ.

Alright well let me know, it'd be cool if you could make it out.

Best dropkick song off that album by the way, good choice!

we did it on a friends jeep speed XJ, a frind hit his rear hatch so we cut out the bottom half, redid the exhaust, ran hood pins to the roll cage to hold the hatch down. and tied the caiirier to the cage. it works well. ive hit it a few dozen times.

your rig is almost exactly what i'm looking to do with mine. half high speed adventure wheeling (jumps, woops, ect) and half tight trails and crawling. your rig is the first tj i've seen anyone set up for any kind of prerunning type wheeling. love the fox shocks. ever thought of running your rear shocks outboard of the frame via a notch?

actually yes my next project is, installing my 8.8 trussing the front and rear, and adding bumpstops. I just picked up a set of bilstien 2.0 bumps for the rear. When i install the 8.8 i will be outboarding the fox shocks. you or anyone needs any advise post up or pm me. the 8.8 will start getting installed within a month.

found the vid of how i bent my control arm skid... what a rookie. all that road and i picked the line with a big rock lol

YouTube - ooops.wmv

(thanks for all the compliments guys!)

I just got back from a 400+ mile desert run. The jeep performed great. I ran it hard and it took the beating like a champ. I just have to grease things back up and air up my tires and im good to go. I will be driving up the mountains this weekend and hitting some rock gardens. After that I will be teraring the jeep down for some much needed axle trussing and gussets.

Heres a pic of a friends daughter. she handled the jeep like a pro. 13 yrs old and hit 40mph in the sand wash.




needless to say she was one happy camper getting some drive time in. she prolly logged in 4 hrs total sand dunes, woop sections, lava rock, and sand washs. danica patrick better watch out
