Been to the mounds a few times.
Wasn't to impressed with the awful kept trails
Almost lost my light rack and saw a ton of xjs stuck
Because of a huge tree fall that no one cared to clean up.
Also wish they'd do something for over grow on trails
But I enjoyed Drummond clean trails and hours of sights in woods
Also marble head for people who want some harder stuff.

I love the led light I save so much time doing two hand products now
I wish i would have had it sooner.
also had to demount my spare. : dun dun dun:
My boyfriend said the tires leaning forward and the carrier welds
Breaking to much for him to feel safe with his 300$ spare tire present
On a life or death carrier. Makes sense. Also with the spare off and all exhaust leaks
Fixed and the header under the hood I have never drove so fast since I owned this jeep.
I actually hit 50 and I dont even notice! I have a few people try to race me to.
I actually won a pick up with a van. Not to much bragging but before it took 12 seconds to get any kind of pickup and then 6 more to switch intonext gear.


Anyways smitty is Spose to contact me back Monday about bumper number twos booger
Welds breaking. The weld has no contact at all to the metal. I told them and they are pulling bumpers to check for quality control Monday. What a joke. He ( Ray from smitty) also believes his company welds inside and outside of bumpers . Haha ok brother both bumpers from your company barely has a weld. Once again hellenkeller was welding bumpers.

Oh...I have a feeling this will be quite a popular thread.

Nice progress on your TJ. I think I saw it at JF and N2D.

You need to ask Santa for a winch.

To run the stuff a lot of these people do you will also want to get rid of the wide plastic flares, back to stock for now?. Sell them now before the are broke.

Get some tube fenders on it to preserve the body if you want a nice look for your rig.

Head out to R&V New Years or sometime. Or go to the "Dog Party" at Twisted Trails to see if these are things you want to subject your rig to.

I'm sure you could hitch a ride on some of the tougher trails and see what your up for, someone will have a couple seats open.

And both place have non body damage threatening trails.

Going to and checking these places out my save some money. By skipping some of the interim steps of just wanting more then your current level only to rebuy again for the next step.

Either I lost my mind but I'm in round two for a
Sponsorship for smitty and I'm actually debating walking away.
I couldn't even push a product that's breaking on me and I almost lost my
33" duratrac first bad bumper now with the second my 300$ km2.
I really wish these guys would get better welds and quality control. So sad
Demounting my 35 km2 :-( for fear of it's safety

but back on topic here.

why do you build a bumper for the rear of it? to be honest anymore i dont carry a spair on the jeeps. leave it on the trailer or in the truck. you can build a bumper for cheaper then you can buy one for and then its yours. its pretty obvious that they cant weld worth a damn. id look else where.

honestly if you wanna wheel that jeep then your not going to find clear and maintained trails. thats part of having a jeep with a lift and tires is to crawl over the stuff. its part of the fun.

id look into a set of axles for it. hp44 front to match that 8.8 rear with some lockers would be pretty nice.


i cannt tell you what to do with it as we all have our own ideas and thoughts. but around here they are going to get scratched at the mounds or at twisted if you wanna see the good stuff there will be body damage along with it. may wanna look into some body armor.

Awful kept trails?
We don't wheel on "groomed trails". You must be more of a seaonal road wheeler looking at the sights, which is fine, but a huge fallen tree across a trail makes my crew very happy, just means we have a new obstacle. Getting stuck is part of the fun as well and body damage happens even to a light rack .....just a fact.

Pretty jeep tho.
It is pretty. I like the home made eyelids. Makes it look angry like they do on the Neons...
