And in case you were wondering why my Jeep isn't in any of them, the pictures were taken by my friend who was riding with me. These came from another member of our group:





I got a little sideways while backing down from a failed attempt to get up a snowy hill. In fact, by the time the day was done we had used just about every piece of recovery gear we had with us.

You have to move fast - they sold out all 60 spots in 10 days.

Not sure if Snow Blind is filled up yet - different club but same hotel as home base and pretty much the same trails.

today found out i got a nice tax return coming back, i am looking at upgrading my shocks for longer lift shocks and upgrade adjustable control arms. the reason for this is that i am on stock shocks and stock control arms also the control arms angle isnt good since i am lifted 2-3" would like to correct the angle and improve the ride and handling/flexs. need some input on this what do you guys think?

I don't know a ton about the XJs, but the front suspension is about the same as the TJs. Is there a reason you need adjustable arms, or would some longer fixed arms work? If you don't necessarily need the adjustables, you could could save some money. I'd buy the best shocks you can. That really seems to be a bang-for-your-buck item.

yeah the xj are very similar to the tjs. i figure if i spend the money on lower control arms i guess i should go adjustable lowers. the adjustability would be nice to have. i was thinking of ordering bds suspension shocks.
