    Those were awesome!

    Man, you do a great job putting them together, with the transitions, music, everything....good music selection, too...probably makes those videos good for showing off to my friends who don't really get it. However, for me, I prefer to hear the cars, the suspension, the rocks crying for mercy, etc. I really enjoyed the first one.

    Speaking of the suspension...I assume that's what that popping was in the first vid...is that right? I had no idea it made noises like that. Was that the coil? Or what?

    It's a cacaphony of leaf springs, coil springs, u-joints, front locker, etc. coming together in perfect harmony......NAW! It was a combination of the front locker being engaged a little to long and the wheels trying to turn to the passenger side, which is darn near impossible when the locker is engaged, that's why I was backing up a few times to unload the pressure on the front locker. You can also see and hear the passenger front tire rubbing in the wheel well at full stuff. Click, Ping, Pop...it's all music!

    Glad you enjoyed watching it, you ought to try it sometime.

    Amen! Rubber floormats are on my bday list (well, were...I honestly don't know if they ordered them or not...) so I can hopefully start getting the Jeep a little dirty without fear of getting the interior dirty.

    I've been reading a lot on naxja and jeepforum here lately. I'm still drooling over an RE 4.5SF lift and 33x12.5 tires.

    Wow! That looks like so much fun. I do admire the amount of work that must of went into those rigs to get them to perform like that.

    I have as much fun wrenchin' as I do actually wheelin'. Just got done stuffing a Durango steering gear box in today. The OEM one was a bit sloppy and had been showing signs of giving up the ghost after this most recent trail run.

    When we were about 1.25 miles from the exit of the trail, one of the Rubicons busted a sector shaft about 2" inside the steering gear box. We took turns steering his front wheels by pushing them left and right while one of the guys drove. One of the crew got intouch with his girl friend and she brought a new box and drove it from Colorado Springs to Buena Vista, approximately a 2 hour drive. After getting his rig repaired we got on the pavement and I discovered a wicked driveline vibe at about 20mph. We took a look under my rig and found a chunk (small) of steel missing from the rear pinion yoke. That allowed the u-joint to slip off-center just enough to cause the driveshaft to spin off-center. That was quickly fixed and we were off again. About 60 miles later the Jeep in front of me let loose a stream of sparks from under his rig. We stopped right away and found his rear u-joint was toast. We yanked the driveshaft in about 5 minutes and he drove home in front wheel drive. The day started with us leaving our house at 7AM and ended at midnight when I carried my daughter from the jeep and tossed her in bed. A long day, but as you can tell from the video...well worth it!
