Just got my vehicle down from the lift and...

this past weekend I beat up on my Jeep and now have to/need:
I have to replace my Tie Rod & Track Bar and Drag Link Cause I bent them pretty good
Need Alignment because of the the tie rod & track bar
Need to Re-Balance Front 2 wheels (lost some weights)
Need Passanger side Motor Mounts (going to do driver side at same time since Im going to already be in there)

All this made for a very slow ride home...
i could only go 35mph, took me almost 2.5hrs coming by way of 26 from hagerstown...

but I was able to do every obstacle I came across so im pretty happy overall
That's what happens when you high center yourself! You know I'm only messing with you..that was pretty damn impressive. On the bright side, you already needed a new tie rod, and you can have the ZJ track bar we pulled in Edgewood.

lol i centered myself on my cross member lol
surprisingly it wasnt all that damaged, barely a dent in that thing

i appreciate it, thats 1 less part i got to get now

and of course, those of you that were there, know about the incident involving my back hatch that we will not be discussing... lol
so thats broke too, but im not worried about that replacement just yet, duct tape to the rescue

Sorry to hear about bent up steering system. My baby did just fine, no broken or bent parts. Just got through greasing her up and changed the fluids oil, tranny case, and both front and rear diffs. She's ready for another adventure I have been prepping her for awhile for these types of adventures, so she was ready for it. I would like to get a gas tank skid though.

You done good, kid. But for the record, I couldn't follow you there because I was already in front of you.

looking good
cant wait to see your XJ bumper done and painted


ok, to be fair, FOR THE RECORD, you were in front of me for 1 lap.
but you didnt try to go off course or suggest a different route during that time either...

but they did keep up for the most part on everything else, so bravo to both the stocks that were in the group

the group consisted of:
(1) 7" & 35s?
(2) 3" & 31s and
(2) -arch and stock tires..

Mr 7 incher was just showing off, of course its easy to do when everyone else is smaller than you lol
