I didn't have any problems but didn't try little sluice because this jeep is my daily driver Im really happy with how my jeep is coming together!
Nice pics I guess the Sahara couldn't be totally stock though if it had sliders instead of the plastic sidesteps. Wow though, bent sliders? Cheap brand or just really rough spot? Maybe I might be insane enough to try the Rubicon after all then lol. Was it a 2 or 4 door?

LOL I better explain my comment before I get in trouble. For whatever reason I just assumed it was a JK/JKU Sahara and I know the JK/U's come from the factory with more clearance, better/beefier CA's, etc. than the TJ's did. So I'm not being snarky or anything when I said I was impressed, I really was

I'm pretty sure a Dana 35 has better clearance than a Dana 44 on the same size tire

I honestly don't know. I got the impression from a post in the JK forum once from someone who's had a range of various Wranglers that compared to a TJ the JK's had larger tires from the factory and more room for larger tires with less lift than a TJ needs. That's where I was coming from on the clearance thing. I was talking from the ground to the underbody, not axles/diffs.

Should have the teardrop by then, so camping will be a go. Just really need sliders for the jeep and I'll belly drag that puppy on over!

Would you really want to pull a brand new tear drop thru the Rubicon?

Hell no! I'd park it at a base camp, maybe Loon Lake or somewhere close.
