You need to come out and wheel with us! I like your style! It is almost time for you to get a buggy if you like playing in the rocks.
I'll send you some steel brackets we have that will fix the weld crack. You are the second person that has wheeled hard enough to need the brackets. You just need to drill a few 3/8" holes and add the brackets and all is good.
Thanks for sharing the cool pix. Man you drive like me. By Braille!
John Currie and Blaine taught me ease up to the obstacle and when you hit it back up and drive around it. If you every get a chance to wheel with those guys, watch how smooth they are in the rocks. It still amazes me when we go wheeling. They drive around the rocks and I bash into them.
I was wheeling with Phillip and Chris. They talked about their trip out to JV with you and Blaine. They had many great things to say about both of you. My rig will need some more work in the axle department before it's ready for JV!
Let me know what I need to do to get the brackets. Should I send you an email?
I'll have to tell my wife that we need to visit my brother and uncle in SoCal as an excuse to bring out the Jeep your way to do some wheeling. I'm heading to Moab the last week of April/first week of May if you need an excuse to go.
You can see more pics of our trip here, although they some how got in revese order: Clayton
While there products are great, I would also have to agree that on this forum they are hyped up to be alot more than they are.
I am certain my belly armor would not develop cracks like that after 1 trip out. If it did then it would most definately be completely destroyed by now after a countless amount of trips.
I'm not at all surprised to see the aluminum bumper dented, or the aluminum skid-plate cracked, nor am I surprised to see the gouge out of the aluminum corner armor.
I am suprised you say this, because i had a discussion with a few wheelers this past weekend about Savvy products. The few guys that I talked to were split on whether aluminum products were as stable and durable as other types of protection out there....I understand that there is a weight difference but is that all the benefit of aluminum?
