I've used my hitch in the past and rock crawled with it on, it's scratched up. I think I used it twice in 34 years. I'm just not sure I'll use it at this point, I have an Xterra with more power an smaller tires.

Actually I finished this yesterday. I removed the rear seat and built a covered storage area. The upper level works great for carring our two miniature Dashounds. We put their dog beds on the upper level and they can look out the windows while we store everything else on the lower level. It is easy to remove so the rear seat can go back in. However with the kid grown and living on his own, I don't think the rear seat will be going back in anytime soon.

I'm only on 37's but the Jeep is better than the car to pull the "new to me" boat...

Nice upgrade on the arms. I think I am going put some door sized ZORT decals on mine soon like I did last year for Halloween. The looks and laughs I got from people were pretty funny.

I'm also a mile above sea level and alway go up from there. The 40s/beadlocks weigh A LOT more than my 37s did too. I did use my hitch with the 37s to haul my Snap On box on a trailer and pulled a '56 Chevy on a trailer. It did ok. I think those days are done for mine now though.

Very nice!..I'm planning on the same thing, but I was also going to bedline the tuffy cover for a matching texture.

Went off-road and destroyed a tire on a rock.
At least it wasn't in the middle of the creek.

I've never changed a tire in the middle of a creek. I don't want to.
