Pilot Rock 2N17X Saturday 9/28
 
Zombiehunter and I will be running Pilot Rock 2N17X on Saturday 9/28 at 9:30 AM.

Meetup at Mc D's off the 15 and 138 at 9:30, we will then head to the trail head which is about 10 - 15 minutes away.

Our plan is to take 2N17X to arrow head, then end up in Big Bear, possibly do Dishpan or whatever we have time for.

Suggested requirements:
Lift, 33" tires. A locker would also be helpful. I made this run open on 33's and didn't have to bypass anything.

Going:
Suicideking
Zombiehunter

Here's a video that Plukethe2 made of our run almost 2 years ago.

Yeah, I was thinking about that too when watching that video: Hey there's Bill: Different bumpers, wheels, rails, axles... But the body is the same I guess. :lmao:

Then looking at mine, pretty much the same. I think the only things I still have from that video are my control arms and skid plates.

I always like Plukes vids, cause he uses music with good beats to it. He made one the one time we wheeled with him and his dad at Bullfrog. His choice of music and editing did it for me. Hell, I don't even know how to post a picture on here, but it's on my bucket list to learn. So with all that said Rick, Candy and I wanna go. Mark.

Man you guys have spent a lot of $$$$ on them jeeps in the last year and a half....what a transformation!
I can hardly recognize them...
I think for the most part the only thing that didn't change was the color...lol

It's always fun to watch old videos just to see what your jeep once looked like.

Right on Mark! Glad you two can make it!

I don't know what happened to Pluke. The Pilot Rock and Bullfrog runs were the only ones I ran with him. Him and his dad make a good team and his videos are really good!

Last I heard he got banned or something?

So true. I do have hopes of someday painting it some sort of camo, so maybe the color will change one day too!

Would love to run this on Sat. but don't think the Jeep is ready yet. We just got our JKU and so far the mods are only 265/7017 KM2's and a 2.5" lift.

A lot of them have...I don't know if you noticed that Red Rubicon trying to make it up the hill, but that was Johns Rig right after he got it....before many visits to Stan's place...Here is mine in mid 2010, right after I got it..

WOKNROX 09-23-2013 12:10 PM

That's a sweet lookin jeep Bill...I bet your wife had no idea how much that think was really gonna cost...lol

Someone needs to start a new thread so we can post up before and after pictures...

DTM 09-23-2013 12:11 PM

Thx Steve and for the record, I had no idea how much is was going to cost either... :)

That's a good idea on the thread..."Jeep Evolution"

By the way the reason I cant make the run Sat is that I am working the weekend to Line my pockets for the following Sat off road expo...

Ahhh, what a cute Jeep... haha. It has gone through a huge change since then, Bill. Looks great even then.

Cute Jeep? Now where have I heard that before :)

Yeah I bought it lifted and with all terrains so I figured I bought a built jeep and was done :D

suicideking 09-23-2013 12:56 PM

Yeah, they definitely look different. No problem with Hijack. I'm usually the one to hijack a thread.

Here's mine as it was in that video:

Yeah, my wife still gives me shit about how I said I'd NEVER lift it and never go larger than 33's.

WOKNROX 09-23-2013 01:19 PM

Here's my ol boy back in 06....I'd have to do some digin to find one from when I bought it.

Looks like it was on 33's back then?

Is that green one a CJ? What happened to it?

WOKNROX 09-23-2013 02:00 PM

Yeah the Yj was on 33s sack then.
Here's the ol boy today...

I still have the Cj5...I'm doing a trans swap and he'll be back on the road...

Yes I like the idea of an evolution of a vision thread myself. I created my own thread on the other jeepforum website. However it would be cool to have one thread were everyone puts up their before and after. Only problem with that is after usually means the end. So, when does it ever end?? Lol.

We have a Sport with 3.73's and the limited slip. I swapped the original Goodyear Wranglers for the 32" 265/70R17 KM2's on 10A take-offs. Been waiting a month for my TNT rock slider/steps. It's a project, one step at a time.
