Damn just found out the system I got for $200 is worth somewhere around $3000... most of it is in the speakers alone which are QB quarts and are worth $700 for just the two

This:


Equals This:


Really bent up tie rod so I ordered Rusty's Z-steering conversion through the local shop J&K customs.

Some other pics from this weekend:

(I made an engine mud flap out of a semi-truck mudflap, seemed to work pretty well and keep my engine quite a bit cleaner)

Saved by the bumper:








This Cherokee had a brand new Warn bumper that had been installed the day prior, but it had only been mounted to the stock bumper mounts and then welded on other parts lol. On about the third tug I watched the whole bumper ripple across and I told the guys by me to look and sure enough right then it ripped right off.

I think it's the NEO4-x. they're hard to put in and i had to file the slots in the led bases wider to get them to lock in. It's one of my favorite mods on my jeep though.

That's awesome to hear, they're the only offroad-legal dunes I've been to so I don't have anything to compare them to, but they are amazing! Next summer if you go you should look up the Lava tunnels/ice caves... It's probably the coolest thing i've ever seen anywhere and is definitely like the best part of the trip down there. They're ice tunnels that go about 1-2 miles deep in under the desert and they're just in the middle of nowhere like 2 hrs from Rexburg.
