duh. I was there!

Dont let them kids get in over their heads!

Some stuff is pretty gnarly out there, but its a ton of fun, take pics.

You gotta be flexy flexy!








It's even better doing all the exact same scary **** at night, haha Talk about pucker factor.











Who's that weirdo standing behind the jeep?





That last pic in the dark where the tailights are all way ahead of me is looking down this part of the trail, entering into the big bowl:



Here's the rest of the pictures:

My TJ was actually supah mild and built on a dime.

2.5l stick shift, open/open

2.25" budget boost with cherokee coils up front and LJ Hard Top Rubicon springs in the back

Springs game me about an extra inch over the 2.25" BB

32" Maxxis Bighorn's

I honestly have no idea why it flexed and worked as well as it did. Thing was like a little slinky. I'm ASSUMING it is because even with the added height, they were still stock springs, which are likely a lot softer than most lift springs.

I stuck to the mild stuff out there, and you can see what that looks like. I never really explored too far though, because I just followed McRoberts around so I'm following him through stuff in his locked full width rig on 37's. I got scared alot, haha.

Just goes to show if you're a good driver, you can do a lot without having that much (not trying to toot my own horn here) but ask andy or any of the guys that wheeled with my old jeep, it was a little piddly thing but it followed them all around.

Here's the jeep's stance....clearly nothing special

Yep, a little higher than mine. Got 31's and a 2" bb in the front only to level it after bumper and winch. Disconnected, I should be able to have some fun! Those pics look sick! I'll charge the cameras and try to get some good video too.

He will be fine look in my pics. I was running factory lines.


I have no idea about xj's tho but seeing as you only have a mild lift and I'm assuming you have bump stops you should be fine.

P.s. I would not recommend disconnecting the bar unless you do it at the trail head. Not worth it driving an hour in each direction in traffic without the easy bar on.
