just4fun Well I just read the whole thread and sounds like my 6" rough country long arm and yours had all the same issues, all over the road and a work out to drive. Ive been looking into lowering mine back down to 4" and doing a 4 link out back and relocating the rear shocks for awhile, after reading what you did I know what I have to do. It was a joy reading everything you posted

Ezalycasaid1 Ive been running billings canyon trail TrailDamage.com - Billings Canyon and I just ran 21rd http://www.traildamage.com/trails/index.php?id=147 the first time yesterday. These trails are RUFF, statistically they have cost me $450 per run in repairs. However I still have NOT snapped a stock d30 shaft or ujoint with 35s and an arb air locker up front. If I can run those trails and not snap a shaft I have no idea why people break theirs.

Ezalycasaid1 Flex pic just for fun, for comparison Im about 5'10. The shocks stop at 11"s of down travel. Thinking about swapping to 14" coilovers later on.
05-21-2012 11:46 PM
Ezalycasaid1 Couple more pics. Also recessed the tailights. Made a rear bumper, filled in my old gas cap hole. Then cut off the bottom front fender guard reinforcements. Took away more approach then I thought it would. Lol it grabs on this one vertical rock on the billings trail thats about 6 feet tall when I try to climb it. 3rd pic is of the escalator on hells revenge. Made it up without a winch, haha only took 30mins.

Ezalycasaid1 I never ponied up and got the premium subscrition so I figured Id delete a few posts on here to make room for the latest pics of my rig. Right now it has. 100.5" wheelbase, 5" Triangulated rear lift, 4" lift front HP d30 with ARB air locker, truss, 1.5" x 1/4" DOM hiem steering and trackbar. Custom rear bumper. Custom tubedoors. Ive making alot of stuff on my own.

Thanks man. I used a JMR 3speed. Don't have it anymore. If you do your front fenders the way I did, use 1-3/4" OD x .120wall HREW tubing minimum. I used 1-1/4" x .120 and its just not rigid enough. It buckles under decent stress. I honestly would recommend you make your own high line fenders using a tubing bender and your original fenders. There is a DIY high line for tjs write up somewhere on the internet. My way was cheap but its not high clearance and gets caught up a lot. Good luck on your build.

The new wheels, tires, front and rear bumper look great. Good job once again. Are the bumpers powder coated or just that hammered paint?
Wow! You did have a full day on the trail. Lots of broken rigs that day. Glad you came out in one piece. Your jeep is really quite capable.

Thanks for the compliments on the bumpers. Ya, it's just hammered rustoleum.
Thanks again Chad!!

Hey Chad, thanks for pulling my Son off the hill yesterday! Very nice of you. I made him try it again after you left. This time in 4x4, lol. He went right up & over it. Hope you guys had fun in the canyon, we sure did! L8R!

Your Jeep is coming along great Chad, we will get together again in spring sometime & do some more trails. I have done some things to mine & Jarrod is changing axles so it will be all of us trying new stuff. I hope we can persuade Xman to come on some trails as well

Ive bought a welder, pipe bender, bearing press, etc, etc, so I can start soon. Been missing u on the trails man, we havent had someone with a standard to show us how its done in a while.

Sounds Fun. We've been hitting the high country. I work in the oil field too, just darn thankful to have a job!!!

07XMan2Door OK, so I actually had a chance to wheel with Shiella yestersday. I learned a lot about this increadible Jeep & it's operator. The most alarming find was the fact that Ezaalycasaid1 is actually a beautiful Golden Retriever, and she handles that awesome jeep quite well!!




A great view of the countryside & the hard parts!!



Very nice Jeep Chad. Has a great time with you on the trail yesterday!! Thanks for not running over mine!!

What kind of bender it is and where did you get it?

Being normal is just crazy!

nick50471 You can post more pictures if you use a web hosting site like Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket

Attaching the pics takes up server space.

TJ looks great. Does having the tubing wrap around in front of your tires hurt your approach angle?
03-26-2011 03:14 PM
Bobbyt I'll be looking for you here on the western slope. I will get out of your way. lol
