Your Jeep looks great man. I think it's the small things like the spacers and the grill that set it off. Those tires also look very nice. Any tips or further pics on the grill? I pick up my 5.7L on Monday and that'll probably be one of the first changes. Thanks in advance!

So i went to Rausch Creek Off Road Park last weekend with a local off road shop, the owner of which took his wife's black WK...i have more pics of his than mine since he was in front of me. Did all green and blue trails. Some of the blues were definitely more extreme than I was planning on doing, but once you start you can't exactly turn around




more pics here:
https://picasaweb.google.com/1029647...CreekSept2012#

damage report:
smashed my plastic side skirt and bent my fender a little

flattened this cross member a little on a rock

broke a front axle

belly guard took the most beating of all my skids

i did something very similar, but instead of ruining the plastic which only has a small crack, it folded the corner of my door about 1" diagonally as well as pushing that fender up a little. i plan on getting those Steel Armidillo group buy sliders.

so I took a strip of aluminum cut to size and then primed and painted it to match my light khaki and glued it in there...much like when omelet installed his 4xguard sliders, they don't exactly match the rest of my jeep since they're the only thing that's clean
