I got a HP D30 im working on(regearing and cleaing up/paint) still need to get the 8.8, and my MetalCloak arched tube fenders should be here anyday now....cant wait
Thanks man. I learned years ago that if I can't crawl over it I don't attempt to go over it. I don't like breaking stuff. The badlands were dead yesterday, in ran the trails for several hours and only came across a couple of Jeeps besides me and they were in the most popular spot, the rock quarry. Even then, I saw a trailered in built rock crawler getting towed back to the parking area because he broke something on the rocks. The place can be vicious on hardware.

I haven't made it out to haspin acres yet. Maybe I'll have to plan a trip before winter.

Yeah dude, I had to have a friend with a dodge 1500 to tow me out. The ground was completely flat at first with sand but then my vehicle just slid in and then the mud between my fron and rear wheels moved back and forth as I tried to get through it.
When I got out, the mud went half way up my thigh(I'm 6'5).

Gladius I took my new (to me) '00 TJ out this weekend after getting it trail worthy. I took it easy as my purpose was to see how things worked and see what I needed to change/modify next.

Here is a short video of my trip to Attica Indiana today.

Things held together great and I didn't even break my Dana 35 rear-end.
