I know most everyone is likely working, but running rocky gap tomorrow around lunchtime. Leaving around noon-ish. If there's any interested, I'll come up with a meeting spot.

Hoo boy! Rocky gap has gotten worse! Either that, or I picked terrible lines. Either that, or I need to jeep more often! Got really tippy in a bunch of places. Like one foot from driver's side door tippy! Good times. I now realize that "wet your pants" doesn't necessarily mean to urinate yourself. Sweat can do it as well. Rofl! Only damage was some good rubbing on the front diff cover, some good rubbing on the bottom of the rear diff, and some good rock rash on the right rear wheel! Be safe tomorrow, puck!

Will do, thanks Powr.

I am still working on my buddy's XJ, and probably will be untill 2-3 in the morning getting everything ready.

I will never put tons under my XJ in my garage, EVER! When I come by the funds for tons, I am going straight to Larry and have a professional install the whole thing.

Why? (Not being sarcastic just wondering)

Definitely seriously considering 35" tires now. Most of the stuff I rubbed on wouldn't have been an issue with just a little more clearance. That, and me picking the better line!

Maybe learn how to drive. I've done potato many times both stock on 31s and lifted on 33s open open and never had a problem with most anything I encountered, even have done it solo a couple times with no spotter.

But when you decide to step up in tire size, because that 1" difference (fully inflated, 1/2" difference aired down) will make a big difference! Haha let me know, I'll buy your grabbers off you since I know what you paid for them! Haha

Maybe next time you go, don't just stick to the trail and run the washes? Let's see a stock jeep on 31's run those washes! That's also a "dynamic" trail, meaning it changes every time it rains and/or snows. Don't pipe up unless you know what you're talking about.

I have seen a stock Dodge on 31's bounce through the washes. I think the biggest problem here is your red headlights. They make it difficult for your Jeep to get on the right line. Gayness.

I did the first two washes stock on 31s. What now? Haha

And I've done all the way up to the turnout at the ledge in the 4th or 5th wash on 33s. Like I said it is all driver. You can put thousands under the the thing, but if you can't drive it, it won't do what it is capable of doing!

Let me know about that set of 33s! Haha I need a spare set to take with me to South Carolina!

Anyone can type about their suppose conquests of trails, but if you don't show video to prove it, it's just talk. Also, I ran the entire trail on 31's in my rig too. We'll see if there are any comments about the trail's condition from today's run. It's not the same trail it was when I ran it the first time, or when you "ran the first two washes..."

Very true. That trail changes a lot. There are times when it is much easier then other times, just varies by the day.

And as far as video goes, sorry I don't get my rocks off to footage of going 10 mph over some rocks, so I've never needed to film anything. But you can ask people who have wheeled with me, what my jeep and I can do. Ask puck how the rock to the nuts felt in Nelson while he watched me climb the wall the lifted JKs couldn't get up.

Have fun with your go pros and slow mo, rock poses! If I'm watching a video of off-road the truck better be flying and scooting through **** that will make me piss my pants! Haha
