RubiconMatt I feel ya mo! I have a half inch layer of red cement still covering the insides of my wheels I can't get it clean!!
01-29-2013 08:44 AM
Slo Mo my jeep is still filthy after 3 power washing and 2 car washes. the under carriiage still has clay on it . Looks like i need to take off the front wheels to see where the shake and shimmy is. I really liked the run but the clean up is a B***h...
01-28-2013 11:01 PM
RubiconMatt Haha you guys... Three 8$ sessions at the self wash power washing and its still filthy...but I removed about 100 lbs of clay from my under carriage. Three hours later and it still looks filthy.
01-28-2013 08:40 PM

The headlights only shine so far up the walls which gives you the appearance of driving in a cave. Cool place day or night.

Granted we do some nasty trails and get into some tough spots.

The stock axles in rear are known for 2 things
1- bending by the splines
2- bending on the outside flange

I haven't seen allot of breakage just twisting and bending, chromoly is worth it for that alone.
Yeah what he said. Mine broke on the rubicon just before I bought it. They towed it home and I had chromos put in.You can see mine broke in the same way his did.

I was aware of gas level or mileage remaining before we left Ocotillo. I did cut it pretty close though.

I really like the Roto Pax vs Jerry Can.

Congrats on the weight loss so far I really like it out there. I think I'd like it better dusty then muddy. Mark and I ventured out after the poker run and did some sweet cave like trail.

Not too sure now, my son can't make it, he's moving and has work obligations. I remember those days. Anyway I'm 50/50 now, and I have 3 weeks to decide.
