took my 01 TJ on my first Trail event!

I went to a huge memorial event with 2 other trucks, both 80's chevy trucks, both had lockers and one had a 8 inch lift with 44 inch tires and a built 454.

My jeep has a 4 inch skyjacker lift and 33 inch pro-comp tires.

This is my first time driving in an off road event, so i was a bit nervous. When we started out, we had to climb up a large slick hill. I hit it slow and spun a bit.

I backed up and made it over, but was thinking it was going to be a very long day if i can't make it up that thing.

As the day progressed I got more comfortable with my jeep and more certain of it's abilities. at one stop another jeep owner asked me what pressure i was running in my tires.. We checked it at it was set at 50 psi! The people that mounted my new tires didn't read the sidewalls I guess because 35 psi is max.. I aired them down to 20...

On The next couple of hills, my friends tried to climb up and got stuck about 1/4 way up.. Once they got out of the way I tried, and to my amazement, my jeep crawled right up it! This happened on about 4-5 more hills just like that one. I also noticed that they were always having to back up to make it around turns in the trail, but the jeep wouldn't have to..



By the end of the day, the guys in the Chevy’s wanted to get jeeps! I am so impressed on how my little jeep performed!!


When we got back to our camp they told me i must have lockers installed, they jacked up my jeep and it looks as all i have is limited slip in the back? and open in the front...

I love this jeep!
