My older daughter and I got a chance to go down to KS Rocks this weekend with my uncle and cousin. The white TJ is thier ride. The park is only about 90 miles south of us. For anybody that is able to go there I would recommend checking it out. The main loop is for everybody and then they have the rest of the trails marked green (intermediate), blue (moderate), black (expert). Lots of rocky obstacles, good climbs and descents, tight trails to challenge the driving skills. Really got a chance to put the WK to the test. We were able to tackle some awesome runs. One thing I noticed with the WK is that a spotter is very helpful. We would stop and pick our lines on climbs and descents, but it is tough to see over or around the front.

The OME suspension is the real deal, the spacers give it solid, wide stability, and I am very pleased with the performance of the GY Authorities.

I was looking at those as well. Since you already ordered them please post pics after the install (including at night with the light cut-off). I'm curious of the quality of the lenses and the how crisp the cut-off line is.

Yeah - I thought of doin that for the day but decided against it as I wasn't sure how it would effect the drive to and from the park. I'd like to get some quick discos eventually (among other things).

By the way - can't say enough about my OME!

I've had one link disconnected on my front sway for 6 months now. I can't tell a difference. maybe alittle more lean but not bad.

Actually I have not been running a front sway for some time now and with the HD coils unless you take a really sharp turn you can hardly tell the differance. The flex and handleing off road is awesome! Plus I think it feels better on road when you hit a pot hole or bump.



Oh! Criket beat me to it with his cheetah fingers!!!

Fog lights installed, along with my SRT pedals. Now I don't feel as guilty about driving barefoot on occasion in the summer. Took the WK to the dealer who wanted $90 to turn on the fogs with Starscan! No way I am paying that much for 5 min of work. Anyone know of a cheaper place in northwest Ohio? If not, I'll start splicing...
