Re: This Is What A Jeep Is Meant For - Offroading

It is a 2" lift and GCL06 has already done a write up on how to install it and he's a teenager (no disrespect)

Thank You
And your Jeep is Awesome. Cant wait to take mine on some trails.
Thanks Black, no offense taken.

I love my Jeep lifted - it's a whole new kind of vehicle. As pepper stated, it is only a true 2" lift. Looking back, between Bilsteins and the RK, the OME kit might have been the best choice but I'd choose RK over the standard BBs. I'm hoping to get the Superlift eventually to get a little more clearance and the taller look but that's a whole different price range.

The install wasn't bad at all. I had never done any sort of mechanical work before and got it done right.

Thank you Get out there!

Re: This Is What A Jeep Is Meant For - Offroading

It's always better in the mud! (Not like that!) I'm glad people on here actually USE their jeep!!! (Can't Wait to get crap for that one)

You can come play in washington too! Some Great fun here!! It's fun to break a GC!!

But, it's fun to just play in the snow too.

Re: This Is What A Jeep Is Meant For - Offroading

Nice pics bro..

if you ever want to get some good wheelin' in, come on up to PA. I run old logging roads, and forest roads, literally hundreds of miles of 'em.

Brown looks good on your Jeep!

Re: This Is What A Jeep Is Meant For - Offroading

206WJ, I love your rig! Favorite WJ by far.

Thanks Krutj, those logging roads have to be great! It's a shame PA's so far away. I might have to see if there are any within a daytrip's distance though haha

Re: This Is What A Jeep Is Meant For - Offroading

I like the before photo!!

Nah, offroading is awesome too. Although I prefer to do it in a pickup with loads of clearance that also isn't mine to get scratched.

We can all dream

I've actually only gotten one tiny scratch through all the trips. It's almost not even noticeable - just a 2 inch cut near the front right oem fog hole. I've had a couple close calls in VERY tight spaces where I've slid into a mud pit between 2 trees with all of 3 inches of clearance on each side but luckily never scraped (knock on wood).

Re: This Is What A Jeep Is Meant For - Offroading

Thanks GCL06, I don't think It's all tat great. But It'll get there. It's kinda a clusterf*&% of stuff going on. With the on and off-road mods, but it works.

You should see my damage. I try to hide it in pics though!

I have dents on both rear doors from tree's and scratches all over in the paint. No big scratches, but if you really look they are there. Those sliders saved my Jeep MANY times.

Re: This Is What A Jeep Is Meant For - Offroading

Having a lifted Jeep myself, I've done the mud thing....and the entertainment value doesn't justify the potential for breaking things (I trashed a front pinion during a wet hill-climb....Had I not had a warranty I would have in alot of trouble) or sinking your stuff. We always say we exercise caution...but sooner or later, luck- or caution- comes up short.

Its one thing to take a vehicle that you don't rely on daily (or dont mind abusing) to sling in the pits, but I'm relatively sure that at 17, you do not have the resources to handle a catastrophic failure, especially something that happens on the trails (as they sometimes do). I'm not trying to talk down to you- especially because I'm a young guy myself- but you are in a position to learn from the mistakes of myself and others. I'm not saying don't wheel it....but I am saying that it'd be a good idea to keep it out of the mud. Keep that vehicle nice, because you'll trash any vehicle in short order when you start crossing larger bodies of water.

I still wheel it from time to time (my Jeep needs a few minor adjustments), but these days I prefer to play in the sand.
