Way to represent the WK down there. I dig the blacked out pillars you guys have (as I stare at my WK in the parking lot). The pic with the kayaks on top is JOTM worthy.
I was thinking the same thing as I read his reply. My cousin has a wrangler that'd easily go up that in 2wd, but who am I to argue with a guy who has 20 years of off roading experience and off roads with on road tires?

Also, the blacked out pillars + window tint really brings the WK to life if you have a lighter colored WK. I don't understand why everybody doesn't do it

Heck yeah, just air down to 7psi for some serious floatation, don't cut the wheel too hard, & use the skinny pedal!

Re: I went off roading; here's the proof

Of course I know shit like that ^^^^^ would to in in 2wd easily..... lol, I was merely making a point. haha, some of you blokes really are wankers

I've had vehicles with large tires I seldom locked the front hubs in, and one of my mates never locked the front diff in his TJ with 39's and 5.0 Mustang power on the beach.

Re: I went off roading; here's the proof

Hey, I used to be a hard core off roader, I am dying to take my WK wheeling but at the same time id never do wheeling with my wk like i did with my XJ. Give the guy a break. He was just having fun. I spent so much time and money making my XJ amazing and now i have more fun on the trails and fire roads then i did rock crawling.

Re: I went off roading; here's the proof

Not a bit of rubbing at any tire. I had it perfectly bump stopped and I clearanced all the fender flares/wells. Its was a really great crawler.

Agreed. I used to wheel the sh!t out of my WJ but I got tired of buying parts every time I came out of the woods. I'm happy to have a nice vehicle I can get out and away from the noise with now. I don't have to try and hit the deepest mudhole or climb the steepest hill anymore. Just as long as I can get out in the woods I'm happy.
