I have been slacking, I gotta get out there with you guys sometime! I have a roommate who is interested in wheeling his '11 Taco; off road edition, 31s, rear locker, etc... Is this a trail that he could handle? Doesnt look too tough.

Wheels look good, much better than the previous ones!

Stock rigs can handle Rattlesnake with no issues at all there are bypasses around all of the hard spots like RC has

Bless your soul for the wheel swap and props for finding someone that saw something in those horrendous things and bought em. Build looks good, I'll be keeping an eye on this one (drooling over the Bils). I am truly jealous of your scenery, would love to take a looooong vacation over there.

Thanks, The guy who bought them is going to use them on his offroad trailer he is building. The Bil's are nice, I've run them on all of my Previous Jeeps . Once you go Bil you dont run anything else other than OME

It's still on the Jeep. I have not put the new lift or shocks on yet. I've been on family medical leave all week. With a sick baby and my wife has been in and out of the hospital so the money we did have for the install is going toward bills since we have no sick time built up at work. An our paychecks are going to be very small

Oh, ouch! Hope everyone is on the mend.

I thought you were installing all of this yourself? So why do you need to pay for install? If you are putting it on yourself, I'd be happy to help. I am a girl but I do kind of know what I'm doing, I work on my own jeep as much as I can, I'm happy to help and willing to learn.

I live at an apartment complex an we are not allowed to work on vehicles here. One of the of Jeeper's/Mechanic at work is willing to do it on the side after work over a few days. We will also have a rental car for my wife so we are not with out a vehicle for her to take my son back and forth to daycare and herself to work. I'm more than capable of doing the Job, I've installed several lifts on plenty of Jeeps in the past from CJ's, YJ's, TJ's, ZJ,'s XJ's. I just don't have the time or venue to do it.
