Very true, there's another video of me coming down that same hill and looking at it it blew my mind because in the video it appears it was a mere couple foot mildly slanted hill, but let me tell you I was scared as hell going down I felt almost vertical and was freaking out. That being said it was extremely fun, and that feeling of pushing the limit is highly addicting!

Gecko is a discontinued color for 2014. I believe that the production for 2013 is complete. So, what's out there now is all that's available.

I may have missed it, how tall is your jeep. Wonder if your set up would fit in my garage.
Thanks!

Chromoly axle shafts!

Just found out that my guy at 4WP is going to hook me up with some chromoly front axle shafts while I'm waiting on my rear Dana 60!

Zombies watch out!

The zombie infestation around here is at an all time high so I decided to beef up my personal arsenal. Saiga 12 shotgun with slide fire stock and 20 round drum equals bad news for zombies!

Gecko green was my first color choice but they had it closed out. I settled on rock lobster.

Sill no jeep!

Found out why it's taking so long, apparantly G2/Curry (in California) had sent out the Dana 60, but someone in their factory finally recognized that they had installed a Detroit locker instead of the electronic Eaton, problem is he realized this in transit and the axle was already in Texas. So it had to be shipped back. Looks like I'm still one or two weeks out. This sucks. On the brighter side though at least the M3 is getting some action!
