Try and get some footage, combine it and make a longer video. Nice clips though

@Jerkbait... Definitely. I would have gotten more footage but my buddy dropped my camera in the sand and toasted it. Canon s95 too... Luckily I was able to get Canon to fix it for free after talking real sweet tot he customer service rep. Saved me $170 bucks. But anyway, got the camera back and plan to get some more next time.

@Pluke... I know man, you're definitely right. It's in the plans... Was thinking I'd wait till I did my suspension, but that's probably a year out at least. Think it's worth to just install some manual disconnects now? I figured I'd have to re-do whatever I install if I did the suspension but maybe I wouldn't?

@kurtz... Some old quarry pit (I think that's what it was for) in vineland NJ waiting to be developed. Sorry but not exactly sure where we were. My buddy with the CJ who is from there took me and I have no clue how we got there. If you're in that area though, I could find out. It's sweet though. All kinds of trails and different levels of difficulty. No rocks though. Basically all sand and dirt mounds, with a lot of washouts. Fun as hell though.

No. It's not worth it right now. When you buy say, JKS Quick Disconnects, you buy for a certain lift height. What you buy now may not fit later on. you get options like, 0-2" quick q.d's, and than 2-4". 4-6"...



Truthfully, to get the value out of a set of $150 quick disconnects, you should manually disconnect for a year or more to really realize the full importance and value you'll receive out of a "quick disconnect".

If you go straight to a quick disconnect, you'll never know really how much hassle it was to manually disconnect each trip out. assuming youre not mechanically inclined.

I had bare sway bar links and had to manually disconnect, and I myself am not mechanically inclined, and i sure loved the investment with a quick disconnect but only after a year of manually disconnecting.
