this guy and his ruby.. hes scared to get it dirty.. but could care less if he rolls it on rocks.. he was out playing in the rock garden when we were out in the mud pit.. and i mean.. he could really care less about trashing his jeep on the rocks.. his quote "thats what i got it for" lol.. i love wheeling with this guy

well when we were eating.. a guy we met from the gas station came over to see if he could eat with us.. then he liked our clubs t-shirt.. so he bought one.. then i talked him into taking me out in his rig.. which he did.. and when we were driving around.. he told me to talk to the rat patrol about letting him join.. which of course we are getting a michigan rat patrol sticker made for him =D but man riding in his rig was a dream..

Looks like you all had a blast...
I am kinda like your buddy who does not like to get it all muddy..
I used to cover the thing in mud every trip out, and it got to be a pain in the rear taking the 44 front apart, and making sure all the bearings were clean.
So now.. I just beat the heck out of it on the rocks. I will venture into the mud if I have to, but I prefer to stay clear of it...:cool:

yah i know what you mean.. as soon as i can afford getting a dana 44 rear and putting a super 30 kit in the front.. then lock both.. ill never touch the mud again.. the rocks were sooo fun.. at first i was worried because friday night after putting the new trackbar on the front.. i tested my jeeps flex.. and dug into my rear fenders in my friends driveway.. so i tried to stay off some things that looked like id rip into my fenders.. then chad (the guy with the la lift) told me that if i did.. he has an extra set of fenders that i could have and his friend owned a body shop that he could get them painted to match for me for free.. so after that i went all out in my jeep =D so then i tried to flex em out.. and my tires BARELY touched my flares.. but i didnt disco my front the whole time we were there.. my shocks arent long enough and i still havent gotten my new set in

dang.. i meant to add this along but i cant edit my posts =/

the guy with the koz jeep.. said he knew andy and dirk.. it was weird talking to the guy about andy's jeep lol

and the funniest thing that guy said to me was.. ''well atleast i can say i never rolled it in the united states'' i guess he rolled it in canada lol

the beast had a brand new hemi dropped into it along with brand new dana 60s.. thing was sooo sweet
