Yeah, probably. But I like it around here.

My main purpose for going up was to buy a new Powertank. I also wanted to check out the suspension kits offered by All-Pro, Icon, and Total Chaos. I already ordered sliders from All-Pro but they won't be ready until next week.

Here are a few pics.

This years event was better than when I went a few years back. There were less sand cars and crap aimed at the flat-bill crowd. They were still there but not in enough numbers to aggravate me

Most of the good stuff is in and around Hall #4. I saw Gerald from Savvy at the Currie display so I stopped in to say hello. He seemed to have a crowd around him all day so I didn't get any time to talk with him. His new rig looks great though!

Gotta say I'm a little tired of the " Super Jeeps" with $30K axles and 40" tires. I guess they're just not my style since I prefer rigs that can be driven to the trail head instead of trailered. At some point it just becomes a buggy so why not start with a buggy I spent more time looking at rigs in the parking lot than those inside the show

Can you refer me to anyone who would be willing to do me a favor at a small price?

My guy is about 75 miles away but I'll trust him anytime and I've referred a few guys with positive feedback. PM if you need the #.

I'm not against doing them myself with the help of someone who knows how to do it, but I don't want try to do it on my own for the first time. this is our family vehicle and the wife's DD so i want to do it right, I just don't want to pay an arm and a leg. It is only a gear instal, the factory lockers will be reused. I plan to buy the gear sets and instal kits and anything else I might need. If I have to pull the axles and take them to a shop to get a better price, then I will.

We ran sledge and then went over to aftershock. Great day with no breakage on my end. Only carnage for the day was a popped loose fuel line on a juggy and the bead to a 35"km2. Reconnected and reseated and off we went. Other than that we had no problems.my jeep and I did good considering I have stock steering components (aka currie steering with no hydro assist or anything)

Last pic is me and my buddy Garza chillin on aftershock
That looks like a lot of fun! I really want to get out there and do some wheeling when I get back. Nothing crazy just some moderate to difficult trails.

That roll bar on that second rig needs to be tied in a little better.

Found out just how horrible a stock ZJ really is offroad last night

Rocks I normally just roll right over with my stock-ish YJ were snagging the crossmember on this thing half the time. Got high centered at one point, luckily I had the hi-lift in the back. If I weren't so keen on gutting this thing I'd probably lift it.

In other news, my desktop fried its own motherboard and took the power supply with it....

All about that unibody life.

As long as you have a loaded gun, plenty of ammo, some smarts and a willingness to use said gun.
Then you don't need much else.

No work for me getting my rig over the trails but when you're leading 3 JV newbies, it's sorta impolite to get more than a few hundred yards ahead of them at any one time plus I don't like walking that far back down the trail to help them through the tough spots.

They signed up to run the trails together, not just be on them at the same time some of the time.
