First time out to this place and I have to say I was really impressed! The staff was awesome, the pricing was great (4 Wheel Parts hosted event = half off!), and the trails were a blast!
While waiting on my stretch kit to arrive, I decided to do some trimming on the rear of the jeep to make room for the small stretch (moved the axle back 2") and the larger tires. I ended up trimming about 3" off and had zero rubbing. My brother-in-law just had a locker installed up front in his XJ, so this was the break in trip for it. I think he was very pleased!
We only had half a day to play around, so we didn't get to everything, but what we did run seemed to provide challenging lines for all levels of rigs. I can't wait to get back out there for a longer stay so we can really play on all of the trails. Some of the trails we did hit included TNT Rock Garden, Radical Ravine, Death Valley, Heartbreaker, #3, #56, Wishbone, and several of the 2WD trails as well. Just the two of us, so not a varied group of rigs in the pics (sorry!).
Your Jeep changes significantly every time I see it. It looks great!
Thanks! It is actually in the middle of a major change, I was just tired of not getting to wheel it, so we trimmed the rear to make some extra room. The Clayton kit is back ordered, so this allows us to play in the mean time.
The new corners will be aluminum stretch corners, but the wife and I can't decide which way to go with paint. Body match them white, or paint them black like my old corners (easier to touch up).
You going with the Tnt Stretch Rear Corners? Im only 30 min away from gulches. Why didnt you try 3D =))) Always wanted to go out there but that stuff looks way to extreme for me to do.
I looked at 3D real hard and decided it just wasn't worth the damage I was sure to obtain . Plus I had to drive straight from The Gulches to the airport to catch a flight for work, so I didn't have the hours it would have taken to fix a major roll over.
Regarding the corners, I thought I was doing TNT's hi-line aluminum stretch corners, but they are the most expensive and take 3 weeks to get in. So for now I'm not sure which way to go.
Savvy aluminum corner blanks and sliders (have to cut my own wheel well)
TNT hi-line stretch corners (steel or aluminum)- most expensive corners out there.

I was just thinking 4hi or 4lo and not wanting to go out incase i need to switch it in an emergency. I wont be doing anything stupid like hopping on rocks or anything just trailriding and relaxing with some mud of course.
