Ok well Im a bit over due on updating this, but I finally found some time. Not too much has happened but, I figure I would share some pics. As we did last year my buddies and I went out to Moab for Thanksgiving. Thanks to one of my co workers, we finished the tube fenders the night before and all I had to do was paint them during the day before I took off. But on to the pics

The first day we headed up to Area BFE and played around, it was great time just playing around on the obstacles





Then we went to run the first part of fins and things and get some night shots


Here are a few pics coming down white knuckle hill on Behind the Rocks





Gotta love the camping in Moab!


The next day we ran the Trifecta(Poison Spyder, Gold Bar Rim and Golden Spike)

And here is some recent news about the Jeep, this happened while on lunch break from work a few days ago. Everyone was uninjured. Im still waiting to get an estimate from the body shop, but Im hoping its not too bad. Im also hoping the truck doesnt need a whole lot either.

Heres the truck


And the Jeep


Since I was already planning on building a bumper before EJS, I will not be replacing the factory bumper, but putting in an order for some steel and tubing. But more on the bumper when it is actually being built haha

Yeah that's what I was thinking. How will it be with my gears though?

Build a stubby bumper like mine

What gears do you have have? 3.73's? But yea it'll be a stubby bumper, not sure what else I'll be putting on it, but I will be cutting about 5 inches off the front of the frame to get a better approach angle

Yeah 3.73's I'm pretty sure.

Then you won't be able to have a winch up front b

It wont be fun on 35's with 3.73's, but Im sure plenty of guys on here run that ratio and tire size. And there should be enough room for a winch up there, if not Ill just put a hitch into the bumper and have a winch that I use on that
