I think it just that you don't have that far to flop if you belly up.

Hahha.. Nice.

Lookin good Ryan. I like it.


Its funny, just as Randy thought he one up'd ya, you go crazy with the 44/60's and 39.5s.... Anybody else I would say is crazy to run that tire on a 44..... BUT you seem to have had good luck with the 30 so I'll just leave my opinions to myself on this one...

As work keeps getting done, I keep seeing upgrades and things that I think I'm going to change ... like a matching 60 for the front.

Cyrus and I have already discussed building a couple in the near future, but I think the cage is far more important right now. :tonka:

Looking at an XJ with no doors and tailgate only musters one question: "Who's the no so smart guy driving this rig?" It definitely looks scary on jack stands.

Alas, a 60 would be nice..... but my lower doors and 5 cages must be built first to support the cause. and yes i did forget one, WestSideZuki is first on the cage construction list.....

If you look closely the tire is actually mounted backwards. :tonka:

The silly tire changers I was wheeling with that weekend paid no attention to detail. Although it actually made no difference.

edit: Whatever. You and your creepy crawlered Tracker.

Well ... I'm ditching the lift blocks in favor of these u-bolt eliminators:





So, I'll have some spring perches, lift blocks and new u-bolts for sale next week.

If you look closely at this pic you can see that by moving the axle rearward or forward on the perch does not go well with the block ... it can easily "twist" out. I welded them to the perch, but wheel hard enough that I'm not willing to trust that the block is going to stay put.
