I didn't see it either, I sent the folks at Jeep forum a message asking them how long it will take to get it posted. We'll see what they say!

great! that's how all the great jeep memories seem to begin...you know, just cruising around and finding yourself in the right situation to explore a little bit.

I know for certain I'm no expert. Remember, I ended up going through trail carnage and burnt out my clutch.
All while my son was laughing at me as I trembled in fear of rolling over.

The only good thing was I made it through without having to be winched out.

I'm sure if some of us older kids were there, we would have been laughing too! Not that we want you to roll the jeep! Just to see the affects of the pucker factor! And I know that feeling well! It is a rush!

Just talked to my buddy from the Indiana jeep club, he and some people are going to Attica this Saturday, If anyone wants’ to head out there I can give you’re his PH#. I don’t know if I’m going to make this weekend, still need to check the calendar.

did you get it installed yet?

i've done two of them and i would def drop the skip plate, makes for a much easier removal of the stock garbage. and it really helps to have someone helping with the removal and reinstall of the body attachment point (sorry, not sure what else to call it, but those little rubber nut things suck)
