A little flexing by the house today. She didn't even break a sweat on these hills. I could feel the front locker doing its thing on the loose soil. It's a bit strange to feel the lockers through the steering wheel. The 4LO is outright crazy! I love it! It just crawls over everything. Giving it moar skinny pedal doesn't seem to help much. It seems to like to idle through it. Its coming along!

Oh, man. I just love staring at those pics! I'm in love with my Jeep! I absolutely love it. Haven't felt this way about a vehicle since I finished my Duster in high school. It's awesome! Like they say, "It's not about getting what you want. It's about wanting what you've got!"

so since you are flexing it does that mean that it is ready for the trail?

It should be by next weekend. The shocks should be here this week, and I'll get them installed ASAP! It actually handles quite well with no shocks on it. I wouldn't want to run through the spaghetti bowl with it the way it is now, but surface streets aren't too bad. I have a feeling my fuel mileage will be in the toilet now. It hums along at just under 2k at 45 mph! Freeway is gonna suck! I'm guestimating it will be around 2700-3k at 65-75mph.

Mormon Wells Road. I did not take any pictures until I had to actually stop and spot my route.



Made it around that with this bypass



Other then that point I did not have to get out once. It did seam like they leveled a lot of the road out up to the camp ground. I was able to do 30-40 mph most of the way and once I got past the welcome center I was doing 60-70mph. The new visitor center up there looks like it is going to be pretty nice.


The fire looks like it made it all the way down to Harris Spring Road

Thank you. All that overtime and hours spent in the garage are really starting to be worth it.

Got my final wheel and tire package mounted in the trailer (thanks again Powr). It's coming along, mostly cosmetic stuff left and then it will be camping time. Thanks to Khris for throwing down the fab skills to strengthen the box and make tent mounts.

I think that's the first time I have seen your Jeep, looks good! Are you going to put one of those trailer mounted tents on the trailer or just use it for gear?

It will end up having this tent on the trailer.

Moar flexing, and a not-so-good pic of the new lights. Installed Halos in the headlights and changed over to H4 housings. Having an issue with the Halos because they sent me one red and one amber when they should have both been amber. Also, the one amber one has two LEDs that wont light up. I'll take another pic when it gets a little darker out, or whenever I can make sure it shows up well. It didnt even hesitate to climb up on that large block! ROFLMAO, I'm SO happy with it so far. I cannot wait to hit a trail and see how it rides.

How was the body roll with the antirock? Also what gears did you end up going with?
