Installed my first small lift today.

Yay more clearance. A huge thanks goes out to Chad/Colo-TJ. Maybe the next trail after this one i will get to test it out. Gotta let the modded guys get their runs in.

You know, you are not very nice people. I would have figured that getting rid of the nerf bars would have taken care of the "problem"...

BTW, looks like you guys did a really fine job. Maybe we can do Illinois Gulch next weekend to give Justin a chance to try things out. From what I saw on Friday it should be quite doable.

Got Easter plans myself. Was thinking Saturday. Just gotta find a trail... Or two. Gunna look in the trail book and I'll let you know if I see anything worth checking out. You got any trails in mind?

Illinois gulch shouldn't be any worse than China Wall. With your lifts you won't have any problems. Parts of it that I've played on are rocky but nothing terrible. How about we set it up for next Saturday instead of Sunday?

All us little guys took hits but nothing terrible. My passenger side nerf bar sits a lot higher now, Chad put a really nice V in his track bar, Brenden didn't say anything other than he wants more lift and bigger tires. If a vendor had been sitting halfway up the trail selling 35's I would have bought them on the spot and not even quibbled about the price. We got tossed around a lot...
