Heck yea do it do it. When your offcamber does ur butt pucker with that big heavy spare on there?
To be honest, I didn't even notice it back there. This trip to The Flats was the most stable the rig has felt and these were some of the toughest trails I have driven.
Similar to trying to capture the difficulty of Moab, these pictures just don't do this place justice.
It was tippy, off camber, gnarly, slippery, steep, and loose. My brother-in-law and I left at 7:00am and got home around 5:45pm. It was 100 degrees with a heat index of 107. I drank 4 bottles of water and 3 Gatorades (126 total ounces ), but really couldn't have had more fun.
Damage report: everything that I just had painted, got scratched . Scratches on the sliders, new corners, front stinger, rear stinger, currie steering, and both front and rear diff covers. I also jacked up my rear shocks because my springs kept falling out.... because I didn't get my limit straps installed.
Oh well. That's why we work... right?
I didn't take very many pictures, too busy driving!
do you have any pics of where you put the limiting straps, im having the same problems with my springs in my tj.. sweet jeep man...
I haven't installed the limit straps yet, I didn't have enough time before my trip. I am traveling this weekend too, so hopefully I can get them on tonight or tomorrow. I'll be sure to post pictures.

I absolutely love the Radial Rockers. They are tall, ride like an A/T on the street (unbalanced on beadlocks), and are glue on the rocks. This weekend I had guys follow my line on 40" + Iroks and they just sat and spun. Mine crawled right over. Not exactly a scientific test, but it was pretty obvious how well they were gripping.
I've run 5 sets of tires on my rig so far:
33" Geolander A/Ts
33" Xtreme M/Ts
37" Bias Rockers
37" Radial Rockers
The Radial Rockers aren't in the same league as any of the others I have wheeled.
That being said, they..... are...... HEAVY! The run around 85lbs each.
I was going through some of the pics from this weekend and my brother-in-law shot this one of me coming up one of the trails. It reminded me of Jurassic Park!
