I can't think of a single time I needed more Hp. More ground clearance x1000 but not more hp I'd just get carried away and break more things. I have a decent balance right now, I'll try to put it back together and continue on with it for now.


So far from what I've noticed:
Body mounts need to be replaced, At the "ledge at Outback": Caved the pass side in 3" or so and bent the front pass side lower link, bent door hinges and collapsed the cowl under my fender sliders a little entering the creek through the gateway, put a hole in my soft top window on "bad day", bent all my softtop hardware on multiple trees, put a couple more dents in my windshield frame, my throwout bearing gave up in shit creek and I had to use Sam's towing service to lift my jeep up at 3am to put a rear coil spring back in........during which I had to unhook the limit strap to allow me to get the damn thing back in and spin it back in the two coil hoops capturing it at the base(No clue how that came out) Thanks for the help Sam and the Big orange rig that picked my coil up in the creek bed for me.

Agreed.....if only jeep made a good auto trans . But even with your ground clearance you still went everywhere, and that low clearance def showed just how stable you are off camber.

Read old man, the two little tire guys were at the back of the pack That and I have a habit of getting stuck on rocks going down hill and having to be winched back up to turn away from them

It's OK. You don't have to make excuses, we already feel sorry for you.

And it's not all ground clearance. Dale got denied a couple times and he had the biggest tires in the group. (at least I think it was Dale, I couldn't tell for sure who's rig that was)

I think Beefy's 43's at 180psi were probably the biggest in our group
