Yes it is a blast at the time, but then you get home and have to kick yourself. I have kicked myself enough to no longer be tempted by the mud. Also these newer Jeeps have too much electrical crap to muck up!

Thanks bro, I'll be emailing him to get a badge and join the ORT club soon. Can't wait to see the flex shots with the new wheels you put on

Re: Omelet's Build Thread!

Well it has been a few months since I have been out at my local proving grounds and unfortunately most of it has been grated. I know the boarder patrol uses most of the trails to get around so it makes sense. It is just disappointing for those who like to go out there to do some mild wheeling. I didn't make it to all my favorite spots to see if they got to them, but the closest ones to me are now goes. It does make it so you can fly from place to place a lot faster though I did find some rocks to climb up on and test the front so it wasn't a complete waist. There wasn't anything big or difficult enough to flex the rear so I could see where the bumpstops engage though. Here are some of the shots:
















I did notice that the tires rub some at full stuff and right at full lock, so I will be doing a little more massaging to the pinch weld






This was at full stuff. You can see the bumpstop smashed in the strut. The joints still have a little more to go till they are maxed so I might try trimming the bumpstops. There is obviously plenty of room to go till the tire hits the fender lip so that wont be a problem. One of these days I plan to take the bumpstops completely out and instal air bumps to have superior control. That will have to wait for now though.




And these tire they are awesome! At least at speed on loose gravel and dirt roads. I didn't get to do any slow rock wheeling except for climbing up onto those rocks which they did without slipping or any trouble. But they sure do give a guy confidence in the corners at speed! Not that I am surprised since they are obviously race tires

Re: Omelet's Build Thread!

Looks freaking amazing! Now go hit some baja/jeepspeed trails with those tires!

What happened to the lettering on that LR tire? Is that the mud cut tire or is that mud cut the one on the champion wheel?
