It's quality, not quantity.

Some of the guys were giving me a hard time.... after a full day of wheeling in the bad weather, my tow rig was dirtier than my jeep.

Another pic I found that I liked:

Awesome pics man. Time to rethink the tire carrier. Can it be fixed? That is magic wax he uses to keep it lookin soo good even when the trails are nasty.

X2, I am getting really close to putting on a rear swingdown. I would like to know what happen and what to avoid.

Great trips and trip report.

He really didn't hit the carrier that hard. At least not that I thought. But it sure did dent up pretty good.

I came down on my rear bumper/cross member a couple of times, but only one was very hard. It was enough to jar my jaw (rattled my teeth).

Unfortunately, it wasn't the cross member I hit, it was the stinger. I was tangled up inbetween these two rocks-






With the weight of the jeep, it wouldn't have mattered what it was made of, it was getting dented.

How'd those hinges hold up to that hit? I've also been thinking of this type of carrier design so I can at least bring my spare along. Currently I wheel without a spare, just a huge array of tire repair tools.

Parts are coming in fast and furious to make this rig fast and furious .


Have to thank Mutiny Racing for the fire suits, extinguisher, and GoPro Camera. That made my life a ton less stressful trying to figure out how to get those in my short time frame.




You may notice a couple of other toys in the pic- Helmet is from my Autocross days (note Z06 a few pages back) and I picked up a transmission cooler.

Did some test and tuning Thursday at speed- 4low in the rocks, 4high on the flats. After only 30 minutes, I already had transmission fluid purging out onto my axle and steering. Solution? New Mopar deep transmission pan and external transmission cooler. Hopefully I can get those on today, pics to follow!


Full soft doors ordered yesterday (helps to drop 100lbs), but still need:
  • 2nd fire extinguisher mount
  • Rear bump stop situation figured out
  • Hi-lift mount
  • Tool box mount
  • Battery mount



More pictures, mods, and news to come..........

Are you gonna mount the hi-lift inside on the cage or outside on the rear stinger?

I predict many broken parts, then a tube chassis in your future.
