learning to wheel with my new 5.5 RK xfactor long arm

today was the first time taking the jeep offroad with the new suspension. Totally blew me away. awesome! seriously, it rocked. I'm in love with my jeep... is that weird?

i took it easy but had a blast. We only got a few pics on a couple areas because I was the only who brought a camera and I didn't want to get out for photo taking much.

was nice relaxing day with no broken parts.... the only things were an MTR requiring a bunch of plugs in the sidewall. it was hilarious cause he stopped to plug it in a big pile of horse crap. lol. and my rear corners getting crunched even worse than they were before along with tearing up my stock rollbar padding.

So today I got my first taste of what the jeep could do. the flex is insane! not lifting hardly lifting a tire... and soooo totally stable in stuff that wouldve made me freak out previously. No real good action shots of my jeep since I was the only camera but maybe next time.

Damn Ben what could you have possibly hit in Raw Deal to do this?



I got your message after we got off Die Hard on Saturday. You should've come back to the camp spot and said hi. I let Joe hear your voice mail and we are thinking that we need to use that for promotional purposes of some sort.

Glad that you had some fun with the rig and are getting some seat time in.

that corner damage happened on predator near the end around those notches. I'll get some corner armor soon I hope... it will be interesting trying to fit the armor over those crumpled corners though.

We took some video and a few pics at the very beginning, but I think Jim was low on disks and the pic taking just kind of wore off. It was good though. However I think I've put my last legs on the D30 that's in there.
