I think I need under neath armor, skid plates on top of skid plates. Here is my plan now when funds are available of course.

Oil pan skid, gas tank skid, steering box skid, 35" tires to get everything up a bit more, and lower gears via doubler. I need to slow my crawl speed down a bit. I have to hit things a little to fast and the Heep is paying for it.

If you get more overtime than you can stand, there is my shopping list! Haha

I think my Savvy gas tank skid is my favorite mod to date. It is so nice having that skid sitting higher up. It has cut down on hitting it so much that I can't wait to tummy tuck my TJ fat belly. Tim I have this oil pan skid its simple and cheap. http://www.teraflex.biz/oil-pan-skid...2001-only.html Here is a wirte up about it http://www.stu-offroad.com/guards/oil/oilskid.htm

Tim, man it was a great time! I've done UA before but it was a lot different this time and that was my first on 4-fingers. I've been a little under the weather since we made it home but when I looked out at the jeep Sunday there were no fluids on the concrete so I drove it to work Monday with no problems. I KNOW there are a few things underneath that need attention. You know, if you go with a flat tummy it like moving up in tire size. As I mentioned to you on 4-fingers, first I'm going to do the SYE then the Savvy tummy tuck. Probably wont have the funds until the summer but thats the way I'm heading. Are you coming down for the New Guy's run April 6th and how did you friend like the park? I think his name was Kevin? I don't think I could put a newer JK like his through some of the stuff he did.

Man I like that oil pan skid, that will prob be the one I will get. Going to put exhaust on this Friday, flowmaster40, dumped right behind the skid tucked up as far as possible.

Yeah he enjoyed himself, his name is Aaron, he is planning on joining the club sometime. He has a few minor bruises on his need bars and wheels, prob a few scars underneath as well. Thanks for the ideas, I am going to put some thought into it and get some more clearance somewhere. Had a great time and can't wait till next time. I have to work during newcomers in April but will prob make the next one.

Brian (Byuen), the pic in your photo gallery of your muddy engine. What the heck were you doing to get it that muddy?

Come down to HS on the 6th. A lot of us are going to be there!

That was the last time I ever voluntarily touched mud! It was several years ago and I am still finding pieces of that dark brown clay in all the little nooks and crannies. I was visiting a buddy in NC and we did some wheeling in Uwharrie. We were on our way out, and the last thing he wanted to run was that mud hole. Made me go first of course... Then on his try, he got his XJ stuck, broke a u-joint/axle shaft, twisted splines, and unseated a bead Had to winch him out from the front since he didn't have any rear recovery points at the time












I would love to make it out on the 6th, but I will be out of town. Maybe another time!

Thanks! I never thought I would drive a white vehicle, but I like that color on TJs for some reason and not many other models. One thing good about white is it hides all the scratches from branches etc. really nice! Paint always shines.

NASTY!!! I hate mud for exactly the same reasons. I let my boys take the CJ out once when the oldest was 16 and the youngest was 13. CJ is SOA / 38's 14b / d44 lockers, 350, SM420 / dana300 and it can get it! They were gone for about half a day, just a couple of hours longer than I thought they would be. This was just before cell phones became real popular so I was starting to get a little concerned. When they finally showed up the jeep looked just like yours! After leaving the house they went straight to the river bottoms and buried it above the frame rails and had to walk 4 miles to get to a phone and call a friend to bring shovels and a tractor. The only trouble they got from me was that they didnít call me first!

If I had to dig them out with a shovel and use a tractor to pull them out they would still be paying for it till this day!!!! I missed a great opportunity.

haha that is a great story. Sounds like a nice CJ too! I think we've all been there when we've tried to wheel through something that we probably shouldn't have. It's funny because I have an almost exact same story, except I was the friend who did the rescuing. At least your sons didn't hydrolock it! Few years ago a good friend of mine took his dad's CJ out late at night for some muddin and did this...



We were out there till 3am until we finally got it out with my winch. We had to come back the next day to tow it out. Luckily he hit the water around idle so there wasn't any engine damage. Pulled the plugs and changed all the fluids and she still runs great to this day! His dad was a little upset. He said "Son, we have a boat for that kind of thing."
