Thanks, but not my daily driver. It is my toy for the trails, but it does get driven on the street as well as to the trails.

I like the look and function of the small lift low center of gravity. Fenders turned out great and looks great with the 35's.

Finally got a chance to get some good wheeling pictures of it. Here is a few from my last trip out.

The tax return came through, and I was able to get some new stuff. Got a set of lower Clayton short arms. No more worrying about the stock arms on the rocks. The stock one I had to replace was already smashed after one wheeling trip.

Got it out wheeling again yesterday. The best picture from the day. Needless to say, the adrenaline was a bit high at this point.

After my last wheeling trip something felt a little off, but not too bad. This past weekend, I flexed it out just to show off a little for my cousins. Well, on the way home it drove really funny, but made it home. It finally stopped raining so I could climb under and look for a problem. Ugh....

Tim, I see that you live in Maryland. Where are you fourwheeling at in the above pictures? It doesn't look like western Maryland to me.

I do all my offroading at Rausch Creek. Great place for every skill level.

Got it bandaged back up finally today. I little creativity, and some time with the welder, and the bracket is firmly fixed back on the axle. Took it for a test drive and couldn't believe how much better it was. That bracket must have been half off for quite a while because the ride is now much stiffer, and more responsive than it has been in a long time.

I wish I could post in this thread more often with updates, but truthfully, there hasn't been any change at all to the rig. That, and I have only had it out twice this year so far

Here's a poser shot from yesterday, as well as a carnage picture from near the end of the day.
