Thanks to all the great info on this forum my first off road trip to Tucson went trouble free. I posted a few pics on the trail forum. I hauled it out in an enclosed car hauler...but due to family issues with the driver of the truck pulling it, I ended up driving all the way back to central Illinois. For anyone who has not done that I suggest never to try it. Imagine a 4 inch lifted rubicon on 33 inch K2 tires from Tucson to Central Illinois. Not fun, but there was no alternative. But I did it without incident.
Congrats on your first trail excursion - once you get hooked, your hooked. Nice looking Jeeps, but next time try to get a little dirt and mud on them, ...., at least make it look like you went off-roading.
