If you do this be careful on water crossings...Rigid fans don't work like boat props...

Jk Last Experience

So, I wanted to share my last experience with you guys. The JK Rubi rock rails are horrible. They allow rocks to get jammed in between the rock rails and the jeep. Now the jeep is rusting in all it's brand new black paint luster. And for a grand finally(sp?) I am going to try and attach a picture of the greatest catch of all, my little fishy that I found after three weeks.

Ok, so I cannot attach pics. Who can attach a pic of my Fish for me?

Thanks,

Phil

Phil, take them off and get everything cleaned off. Then run a bead of clear silicone all around them. It will act as a gasket/barrier for fish/rocks/sand.

::SELLING HALF OF MY JEEP::

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f33/?uid=152304

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

IndyORV- Dick and fart jokes, titties, throttle, flops, beer, tater balls, and good times.

Hi guys & gals,

I hope we'll see quite a few of you going & I cannot wait. Lot's been going on at work and I'm busy. They are telling me I may have to work on the 9th & 10th but, I'll still be calling off if they have me working. Zach has gotten his jeep done with new tires & wheels & will be showing up. I have gotten new springs and shocks for my jeep so, it will be lifted a bit higher now.
I hope that everyones jeep will be fixed for this run & if its not done just get a ride and camp out with us instead. Camping is fun & relaxing to hang out with us. Wheeling well be cool I am sure Zach & myself will take it easy and see how our lifts are going to do on the trails. Keep inviting others to join us and we'll see everyone there.

Sounds good, like Xander said, us from Northern IL Extreme Jeepers will be there about 18 deep lol. I don't think many are staying Saturday night though, so maybe I'll camp out with you guys!

It's easier to go down a hill than up it but the view is much better at the top.

Thanks Carlos, yup that's my fish. Stuck inside the rock rail for at least three weeks and never budged. I guess fish from Indiana are pretty tough!
