You'll just have to pound the rocks into oblivion with it and it will eventually clear. If at first you don't succeed, just keep trying and it will make it when the rocks get small enough

Yep, there was a guy that comment on my 70 vs 14 bplt thread. He sail he had shaved everything you could without cutting into the pumpkin. He said he wished he hadnt because it clearanced itself. He said it was in a ultra 4 car now.

Here is some scoop for ya Andrew. My Pitbulls stand 37.5" tall inflated at 30 psi not much bigger than a true 35 at 6 psi, yet I did a whole slew of Hammer trails with them. It helps to learn where your diffs hang out under the Jeep

Sterling rear, it has the clearance of a shaved 14 bolt. It does have a pretty good lip on the bottom of the housing and gussets that might catch the edge of some rocks. I'm really careful with tire placement though and feel like I'm pretty good at reading and memorizing the terrain under me. I may attempt to address the lip on the bottom to smooth it out a bit by adding a little plate just to make it slide easier, we'll see.

Awesome, I have not seen a rig with one in this area but everything I read about them is good.

I've not seen many either but I think they will start becoming more common as newer trucks show up in the JY. The aftermarket is starting to catch up on them, most lockers and gears are available, and they are 35 spline. I'm installing a Yukon air locker and 5.38 gears

I just put a bid in on an rci 2161a. I wasn't really planning on it, it just kinda happened.. It's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission right? lol

Strap it down good so it doesn't end up on the road, you most definitely do not want to try and lift that darlin by yourself
