as for the shifter, it sits super low right now due to the 1.5" body lift, i actually have an extension on the shifter itself so i can reach it easily... i'm thinking it might just go back to factory location once raising the tranny, who knows.
you ever drive that rig on the highway in 4L because your left leg gets too tired?

Glad you guys enjoyed my pics. It was fun! I don't have a jeep (I have a bright red xterra 4x) but I learned a lot from riding along and watching the way everyone was driving and using their lockers, etc. Maybe if I get some armor on my xterra I can come along haha.

no lockers here. Or armor.... you'd be fine!

i did get a couple scrapes... gas tank skid, pass. side frame, and rear shock mount, all of which were fixed with a little rustoleum semi gloss

Yea, on trails like these, a locker or two aren't really required. But they make some of the bonus points easier

Get some rocker sliders Greg, you'll probably be wanting them soon

Sliders are #1 on my list really. If I had that at least, I'd feel better about a lot of stuff. Mine has a factory installed rear locker. I think there are some sort of factory skids in a few places, but more armor doesn't hurt.

yeah those are on my mile long list of needs/wants. Gary's stockers will be good for me for the time being... just gotta find the hardware for them.

i also read that all aftermarket sliders require seperate drilled holes from the factory rubicon sliders, which i'll have to drill for already. That means if i do the rubi sliders, then decide to upgrade later i'll be drilling two seperate sets of holes

get used to drilling holes, haha!

I actually just picked up a new Dewalt 20 volt drill, I figured as often as I've been drilling holes, It would be nice to have a second drill, and one that's more powerful. I don't really need to change bits to often when I'm working on the jeep, but when I'm working on furniture, I'm constantly switching back and forth between a few drill bits, having a second drill will be handy
