That's what I told her lol.



*update *


My 31's were causing me to get death wobble between 43-48 mph so I just ordered a set of 33x10.50 Bfg km2s to solve the issue now to regear and long arm in the spring

Not anymore... The middle is WAY more difficult right now. It's polished smooooth. We went a week or so ago and I really had to romp the middle for a while. The JK on new 37's after me had to be strapped up it. When dry or moist the bottom is easy...

It was pretty smooth , I've always been told if you can get up the waterfall before the wall at eagles with out any trouble that Wayne's world will be a cake walk. I have seen several Xj's and first gen 4 runners go up Wayne's World like it was nothing. Where wranglers and jku's struggle. I will admit it has been a few months since my last time to 5 mile and it seems like everything had been rutted out .

Well you know Wayne drives an XJ right? it's big and green.

Ya I have walked up Wayne's many many times but this Time was a lot more difficult. Besides, I'm pretty much at Xj length

One day last week I cut my fenders front and rear. I did not perform the cut and fold yet but I will get around to it one day. Today I went wheeling with my neighbor and his buddy I was able to test the km2's and I am impressed with them.
