Well - this thread is getting boring, I'll give it a little longer before I drop it. I thought this would be a good place to discuss Jeeps and trips &tc. Whatever.

Your opinion is appreciated. No insult or disrespect intended, but perhaps the next time you feel a thread is getting boring, you should A) do something to contribute to it, B) ignore it if its entertainment value does not meet your needs or C) understand that this particular thread was never intended to discuss Jeeps or trips. It was to be used as an introductory thread for new members, but that is not to say that it hasn't fallen off topic.

However, every event, trail run and anything that isn't found in an individuals build thread pertaining to Jeeps, receives its own thread in the main Utah Jeep Crew forum. There you will find discussions on Jeeps and trips.

You've become so PC after your friendly post to Washi. I am proud of you!

DBA2GO - Some of the group is going to Moab the weekend after Thanksgiving. I'd love to see your JK there.

Ummmm, did you see that I said that I was going to race you to Roy, at that moment? I already won when I said go. So, my little vee-tech already killed you! HAHAHA!

I had no idea what that meant untill now, just saw the post. Just to let you guys know, while some of you are lifted to the heavens, it means that you will roll easily, especially on a sidehill. However, a LCOG build, such as myself, is a much more stable platform that will perform much better.

I don't think you want to start that conversation washi. I might have to bring up that while you were digging a hole with your rear end at mineral basin those of us that had lifts were walking right up that obstacle I don't see that one option is better than the other. They're just for different types of wheeling. Sure if you want to go travel slanted dirt roads with tmatt than be my guest and keep your low rider.

Let's let the flaming begin!

Currie Enterprises addressed the issue. Its called an Anti-Rock Off-Road Sway Bar.

While I agree with you to an extent, I don't feel that any regulars in the UJC have freaking huge Jeeps, my experience (take it for what its worth) tells me to put the biggest tire you can under the vehicle with the least amount of lift. It gets the undercarriage up, but keep the center of gravity down.

When I think of LCOG I think of this.

Ah Ah! See, the issue THERE was the fact that all of those nice rigs with LIFTS ahead of me, were not LOCKED! So THEY didn't WALK up anything! They came to a stop, and had to use POWER to get over things all while digging holes that I fell into!!!!! If that hadn't happened, I would have been fine, though, I made it, didn't I? Also, there was some debate in my rig as to airing down. We were thinking that if I hadn't, I would have been just fine. Thoughts?

Besides that, the comment was reffering to MYSELF and others, and not the rigs!!!

Here we have a lifted vehicle "walking"


and a stock vehicle "sitting"


But I am curious, what holes are you talking about? It was too rocky to dig holes, and the only time any of us who were "locked and lifted" had any tire spin, was on wet rock.

Good example of that was this obstacle (the one you winched from because you were sitting on your TC skid plate, just in case you forgot). I got stuck and so did others because we kept sliding into the rock on the right and smacking our diffs on the rock hidden in front (hence the reason for my reverse lights) but there was nothing to dig holes into.

I wasn't sitting there! Just resting and enjoying the view! As for the holes, there were many. I am not sure who I was following, and won't point fingers, but it was an open TJ. And EVERY obstacle that I came accross, to include the stuck, all I could see infront of me was the TJ hitting the obstacle repeatedly and throwing dirt. If you look behind your back driver tire, you can see that it is between two rocks. When we got to the obstacle, someone had removed the back rock. That is when the TJ in front of me sat and spun on the exposed dirt for a good 5 minutes leaving a nice big hole there!

Also, if you look at the picture of where I am "resting", you will take notice of the tire tread prints behind the rear tires. Hmmmm, me thinks it is hard to leave a three dimensional tread pattern in rock. Due to the fact that the ground was wet, and there are clear signs of mud (look at the tires and side of the vehicle) there was, in fact, more than just rocks present! Thhhbbbpppptttt!
