Did some wheeling with the locals (two XJ's) the othernight... the local trail system is awesome. We hit "The Furnace" which is mildy technical and has a river crossing. "Tom's Rock" is pretty much a bunch of huge *** boulders. I avoided some of the crazy stuff, but with the KM2's aired down to 15 psi, I think I did pretty well. Next time I'll bring a co-pilot to get more pictures of me and less of the XJ's. Heres a few shots while the rest upload.

This was by The Furnace, sort of blazing our own trail at this point.

Some more shots from Wednesdays trail-run.







Waiting on Rokmen to start making their corners again. Chromoly's for the D35 are coming soon. Hopefully getting some scrap steel for skids. Need to mount my CB antenna as well.

More wheeling yesterday after class. Had a blast.




Buddy blew his sidewall out. Needed my spare.

Back home for the weekend. Didn't have time to do anything My steering needs some attention. The pump spews fluid out the reservoir and the box is leaking. I'm also getting vibes 20-30 mph. Took a peek at my CA bushings, cracks are forming. My top is zip-tied together, worried about the winter. Exhaust is leaking and rusting out. So i'm pricing out a durango box, new steering pump, ZJ tierod with ends, steering bushings all around, alignment, DOM tubing, JJ's, frameless Rampage top, and a muffler/exhaust setup.

nice, who did you buy it through, did you opt for sailcloth or the economy priced one? Did you order the header channel too? LOL sorry for the Rampage related Q's.

Its cool, this build has gone pretty stale anyways. I bought it through Baseline4x4 and half window skins through an ebay vendor. I went with the regular material, on a budget. I think I already have the proper header channel.

Nice build.
I'd watch those front Ujoints, theres a guy on here whose Jeep pole vaulted into a cartwheel after the front one gave out on the highway. He posted some knarly photos of his carnage.

College happened! The idea still exists (frameless top).

I did read your build.
I thought I read you were having trouble with the clips falling out.
