Wheeled the jeep a lot in September. First was Labor Day weekend for pre-running for our up coming Wheelers For The Wounded. A couple of pictures.
The jeep run great.

It performed great the day of the event.

Next up was the Catskill Jeep Jamboree. With the rain a few days before it was muddy and made the rocks slippery. Again the jeep did almost every thing I tried. Got winched up one hill and off a rock I had all the tiers off the ground. I find a few things wrong with it. The short arms are not right and the skid plate was cut way for the rear long arms. So it now has a date to go to A to Z Fabrication and have Clayton long arms added to the front and a new Clayton skid plate put on. As well as a few other things done to it.

Really nice build. I'm really liking those headlights and the color matched cloaks.

What's next on the build after the date with A to Z?

That is a unique shot , whats the story on the stairs ? On a whole metalcloaks dont do much for me , but I think its
because so few people color match them . They look great on you and your pops rig .

KJS is my dad. Thanks for the complements.

The stairs were to an old hotel in the Catskills and the trail is called 12 step now.

Thanks. A few more pics of the stairs. This time going up. The yellow jeep has color matched cloaks. A guy with us posted a video on you-tube running the stairs.

Took the TJ to A to Z this morning. He has a list of thinks to do to it. Front end to a Clayton Long Arms. You can see in the pic my Short Arms is not right. Next will be new Skid Plates. You can see the one I have is cut short when the rear Long Arms was installed. Update when I pick it up.

The 16th Catskills jeep Jamboree this weekend. Great groups and weather. Got to push the Jeep and lot more than I ever have. One guy ended on his side but with no damage and made it the rest of the day.
