But yeah, time to step up to some Rockhards or PSC's. Not only that, when you get rid of the ACEs you will pick up more ground clearance due to the other rock rails not drooping below the rocker panels like ACEs.

Be sure to get ones that provide a nice step along the body. Never know when you may need people to step on them to provide ballast to get through over or around something.
Yea I like these ones, I haven't had a problem with clearance yet. In fact in tight spots I use them like a lazy Suzan.
I like the way they are, I haven't had to deal with smashed bolts etc. makes the jeep a little Easyer to work on.

Hi Dave, that in a nutshell describes this group of friend.

I for one lived vicariously through YouTube for too long. If I see someone else able to go over an obstacle you damn well know I will most likely try it. If I needed help to get out/over it, well at least I tried it!

RadarRob2012 We never get stuck. Only temporarily delayed. I have yet to completely abandon a rig on the trail. Although I have had to leave a few overnight until we could properly assess the situation in the light of day. Nobody gets left behind!!!

The next obstacle i see that I may or may not make, will most likely be tried. Make some, you lose some. It's who I am. ;-)

Rock on lady rock on...

Not in the least. Welcome them. I actually applaud her individuality and independence to go out and lead these adventures.

Lori said this to me many times while on the trail, "It is not just for boyz. Women can do this too".

Just having some fun with her words.

Hmmm, maybe somethings are better off left to the boyz.

No damage except a scrape on my body armor..is why we have it right? The back fender went right back on..and in fact is on better now than it was with the crappy screws they give you when you buy it. Life is good!

Let's do it again!!
