Spontaneous flex time

There is a park being built near my house and this pile of gravel was begging for it...and so was my Rubi.

Thanks for the nice words everyone! I get my first pay check tomorrow after graduating college, pretty stoked. I'm going to try to find some of that money for a Budget Boost if you have strong personal opinions/experience ] A few other things to look out for in the future is this rear hand grab mod and this mesh grill mod also flashlight and fire extinguisher and soon after those i think im going to herculiner the floor (but re-install the carpet afterwords) for some insulation, noise dampening, and most importantly all round protection.

OH and i got it stuck today (1st) but didnt have my camera (hate myself) it wasnt much to see, just sat the belly right ontop of a small hill and couldnt back it off. (just realized how many parantheses i just used, im tired.)

Skip the budget boost and spend the money on new, longer coils. Budget boosts will just give you height but not usable suspension articulation over stock. Get a quality 2-3" coil lift, like RC, and you'll love it.

^^^ agreed you can get the Rough Country 2.5 Suspension Lift with shocks and new, longer coils for better articulation. It runs around 350.00 Talk to a Rough Country vendor you can get 10% off!!

So yesterday i mentioned i did some light wheelin...i mean really light. flexed over some hills (a dirt mound) heres a pic of the hill. Now i have a click noise coming from the suspension.. i think front right, its only present when hitting bumps while moving. not related to accelleration or braking. i looked but didnt fnid anything. the only thing abnormal about the wheeling trip is i high centered the jeep on the dirt mound and set it on the skid plate under the xfer case. any thoughts?
