Haha. Yep. Replaced all shock bushings before the trip. Glad it was out of the way because we were flexing pretty good all over up there

:rofl: You Cali guys are funny. This is Iowa...That is not vegetation, those are weeds.
Call us what you want but NorCal_Chris is right, they close our trails when people drive all over plants and bushes. Rubicon could be included with those closures if we aren't real careful. It already has been dumbed down from what it used to be because people couldn't pick up their garbage. As Jeepers we need to be conservationists also otherwise we won't have anywhere to take our Jeeps.

I see ware this is goin. This was a private campground where the owner was glad to see us this year. First people to the back 40 since 2007. Me and my buddie with his TJ opened up 3 trails that haven't been ridden in 5-6 years. Used winch to pull down trees off the path.(ones that would hit the T-case with drop).

I certainly didn't mean to offend anyone from California. I understand the problems with trying to keep our trails open. With that being said the picture shown is what every trail in Iowa looks like. The drivers front tires has knocked over an Iron weed. This weed is a major cause of hayfever and is sprayed state wide. This year will be bad because many of our fields didn't get planted and are overgrown with pollen heavy weeds.

In your state people fight to keep every green plant alive in ours they fight to kill then all.

Ya, it's close. Stock line length, worn 2 1/2" springs, 1" shackles, and 32" tires. No sway bar, and Trac bars removed. Bump stops are gone.(on the to do list) That pic had my right front tire smashed into fender.

I can't tell you how many times I take the Jeep out for a spin, take the curve at the end of my road and hear "ping ping ping ping ping" lol. I usually find my tools in the same ditch.

It's funny because I'm not like this at all at work, I never leave my tools around and my tool box is shadowed so I know when I'm missing something, but when I work on my Jeep I guess I get so excited about that new mod that I forget to triple check lol.
