I am thoroughly enjoying this amazing machine....even in its pure stock form it is still possible to have a great time. Plus we have boat loads of snow to play in.

I'm jealous, here in North Carolina snow is an endangered species. Looks fun!

Just back

Hell yeah, till the front gives. I did add some Currie Chromoly axle shafts to the front though, hopefully that with the artec axle armor kit and gussets will hold the front! The Rock Jock Dana 60 is MASSIVE, very impressed.

WesterM3,
BADASS jeep!

Question for you....not sure if you've ever checked, but what's your height measurement from ground to your highest point?
I'd like to do the same but my garage clearance is exactly 83"

My Ram 1500 is lift on 7.5" lift and on my winter 35's I can get in but on my 37's I'm 3/4" too tall. Truck still stays out side as its too long. But I'd hate to have 2 vehicles outside. Lol

Thanks man.
Once again Badass jeep

Check through the thread earlier, I did measure it before I think it's 78-79 inches.

Headlights are trippy on video... I am waiting for you to bring this beast out west somewhere to see what it can really do! The east coast mud puddles and sand bumps aren't doing it justice!

I guess I'll take what I can get, but yeah I'm jealous of the Western terrain. It would be awesome to experience it first hand on the Beast!
