Honestly I hate the look of them with the stock axle so far forward. A stretch has always been one of my plans too

O im sure youll make a good one. I should have let you know earlier. It was some more basic trails, but as always even those have some good obstacles. This was garage trail and snoopys trail.

We have a little off road area. Can keep you busy for a couple hours. Might make it worth your trip up when the weather warms up. Ledges and climbs and stuff. We used to go back there and drink and start pallet fires in high school, then the turned it into a OR area a few years ago :laugh
