Made it to the lake time for my son to get some lunch, Then head back home !










Just a little flex !






Keep in mind this section is wide enough for 1 Rig , there is a 150-200ft drop off the side an there is 2 way traffic on this section leading to the trailheads

Thank you for posting these... Please don't stop! I just picked up a Super Clean 2001 XJ, drove it 90 miles and ripped the axles off of it to fit the 3" Lift... Needless to say my wife isn't very happy with me... hehehehe

All the pictures are great! We tried to head up there to wheel on the 3rd but the fire broke out as we were on our way and they closed the canyon. How would an XJ with a bb and 31s do up there without rockers?

You will want sliders on Mineral Basin if you don't have them expect rocker damage. There are a couple of spots where there is no easy way over or around some spots an you have to go over some large rocks that will put you off camber. I used on my sliders in every rock garden on the trail. But once you get past the rock gardens its a cake walk.

Forrest Lake will trail isn't as hard but you wont have to worry about smashing a rocker on it .

I finally had got around to installing my rubicon express lift and bilstein 5100's the ride is so much better. I still need to install my extended brake lines before I hit the trails The rear is sitting 3" taller then it was before and about 2" taller in the front. I figure once the lift settles the rear will settle down about 1.5" and about an inch .

Here's some pics

Took the jeep out to help break in the new springs. They performed extremely well ! But I did find that I will be buying some brown dog engine mounts soon. My driverside mount decided to let go today.
