Congrats!!

You have seen my Jeep...IMHO i think 37s looks better on JKUs im still waiting for the 35s to wear out and definitely want to go bigger.Theres a dude selling 5 brand new 37 Pitbulls on craiglist if it wasnt for me buying and moving to another house i'd be all over it.

Looks like Gold Butte, the hole in the ground is called Devils throat. The one with the fence around it.

I had lots of fun there on the Gold Butte loop, granted i was not driving but i was glad to get out in the dirt after a long time. Mike thanks again for the ride and Steve it was nice to meet you. I hope we can do something again soon.

Shame that I couldnt make it. I'm still having issues with the truck after the transmission was rebuilt. got some fairly decent vibration that seems like its coming from the transmission area.

It never ends.

Time to sell this pile and get a brand new jeep that wont have any issues. Oh wait, I have no money.

I fly over that hole in the ground. Its about 170' deep. I plan on being stock for about 3-4 months or so. Ill do some light wheeling up over Wheeler pass or up through the Sheep Mountains (North of town).

Being Green is the new Red.
