Can't get off work, so I'm mostly just weekends. Every once in a while I'll do a night.

made a logandale night run last night with a bunch of guys from VV4W along with some of my friends.

it was my first time running logandale and i had a BLAST. i have to say night wheeling is the way to go. it was so awesome.

at first we had a group of about 12 with some open/open rigs and we ran the 2.5 trails then around 11pm most broke off and went home while a group of 6 of us went and ran the 3.5 trails.

ended up getting home at about 3am.

And I also picked up a set of new valve stem seals to install as a puff of smoke comes out of my jeep on start up when its been sitting for 8+ hours.... these oughta be fun.

Here's a more recent pic from this morning.

It rides awesome!! no driveline vibes at all. I still have the stock control arms and stock trackbars on. And I have no death wobble whatsoever.

The tires are 33x12.5R15 BFG A/T on 15x8 rims with 3.75" BS.
