Hey Chad, thanks for pulling my Son off the hill yesterday! Very nice of you. I made him try it again after you left. This time in 4x4, lol. He went right up & over it. Hope you guys had fun in the canyon, we sure did! L8R!
Anytime man.Yeah we had a blast. Went all the way till the very end after cornage corner. The only break was ace's rear bumper got completely ripped off. That black toyota truggy that was with other group got high centered bad, and pinched his fuel lines, and pulled his ignition relay off. We got out of there at 9pm. Rediculously long day. The new wheels, tires, front and rear bumper look great. Good job once again. Are the bumpers powder coated or just that hammered paint?

Wow! You did have a full day on the trail. Lots of broken rigs that day. Glad you came out in one piece. Your jeep is really quite capable.

Thanks for the compliments on the bumpers. Ya, it's just hammered rustoleum.
Thanks again Chad!!

Thanks man. I used a JMR 3speed. Don't have it anymore. If you do your front fenders the way I did, use 1-3/4" OD x .120wall HREW tubing minimum. I used 1-1/4" x .120 and its just not rigid enough. It buckles under decent stress. I honestly would recommend you make your own high line fenders using a tubing bender and your original fenders. There is a DIY high line for tjs write up somewhere on the internet. My way was cheap but its not high clearance and gets caught up a lot. Good luck on your build.

Couple more pics. Also recessed the tailights. Made a rear bumper, filled in my old gas cap hole. Then cut off the bottom front fender guard reinforcements. Took away more approach then I thought it would. Lol it grabs on this one vertical rock on the billings trail thats about 6 feet tall when I try to climb it. 3rd pic is of the escalator on hells revenge. Made it up without a winch, haha only took 30mins.

Ive been running billings canyon trail TrailDamage.com - Billings Canyon and I just ran 21rd http://www.traildamage.com/trails/index.php?id=147 the first time yesterday. These trails are RUFF, statistically they have cost me $450 per run in repairs. However I still have NOT snapped a stock d30 shaft or ujoint with 35s and an arb air locker up front. If I can run those trails and not snap a shaft I have no idea why people break theirs.

I'll be sad to see this rig go but I understand how it is. Look forward to your next build.

Well I just read the whole thread and sounds like my 6" rough country long arm and yours had all the same issues, all over the road and a work out to drive. Ive been looking into lowering mine back down to 4" and doing a 4 link out back and relocating the rear shocks for awhile, after reading what you did I know what I have to do. It was a joy reading everything you posted
