Saw a couple of people break axle shafts and squash body panels. Luckly are trail damage was minimal not that I didn't make it out without a little memento.


I 3" round stick broke under the tire and rolled all the way around to kiss the top of the fender.

I made this look way to easy, lots of people by-passed this one, another xj on 35's broke an axle shaft, and a ZJ winched up the last portion.

This is the pic from the bottom side.

Thanks, yeah earlier in my build I posted some brain storming. I try to just post what I'm currently up to now. Up next will probably be some rock sliders and a regear. Hopefully a 3 link somewhere down the line but one step at a time.

Hangover Run with the Ronin Wheelers. Best day of wheeling I've ever had everyone had an awesome time. Great spotting and some wild technical spots.

Was poking around on the inter-webs last night looking at parts and found me a deal on Doze:



and Dem:




And Deeze:




I had an axle U-joint that was toast a couple of weeks ago and the crappy tube shields or what ever you want to call them fell apart. Being the time of year it is and being in newengland I can only imagine the crap thats getting up in there. My shackles have also been popping and creeking and carrying on since I started to actually wheel this thing. I have already started soaking down the shackle bolts with Penetrating oil as I am expecting the worse and I have kind of always had a goal of ending up with about 4" of lift total.

Rad jeep! I'm jealous of the maroon. I'm stuck with purple.. On board with the low lift and big tires! Low COG will forever win.

Thanks Man. If I had my pick, I would have really liked the gold, sand or gun metal colors, but you gotta rock whacha got I guess. Rock that purple though, and cutting is contagious when trying to keep things low. Hoping I will be able to get some 35's under it at some point with only 4" of lift. Might be getting out the welder for that though. Hopefully I can replicate Clayton Offroads cut job.



They have the rears opened right up to the doors

There I go again with dreams for the future

Yeah i need to cut mine badly. I'm more of a stock looking flares guy though.. I'd go with Notch Custom's X Max flares. Tuck 35s on a 4.5 lift
