    I found that with my steering setup and the 36s and even the 35s I was having a hard time turning when not on the throttle. I had worked the summer before and saved up enough for hydro assist, but I didnt end up putting it on till January 08 I think. I didnt want to put the ram anywhere that I would beat it on a rock so I had also purchased a set of behind the axle steering arms. Well come to find out you cant run these with coils and shocks like a TJ setup, so as luck would have it kirby was upgrading his coil overs and I was able to pic up his old ones for cheap.

    So this was a fairly big change. I pulled it down on a friday, and we were leaving for Aetna Mountain the next friday. Somehow with the help of alot of friends I was able to pull it off and I made it to the Aetna Run.

    I dont have any of those pictures on my jump drive, I'll have to finish this some other time.

    Great progression...
    In post #4 first pic of your rig in Shipwreck on the 34's, if I remember right that was the trip were me, you, and the dude in the purple XJ on 32's wheeled the place by our selves. That was actually the first trip I had ever taken to Gulches. Good times.

    my grand dad had a 1978 CJ7 Renegade Levis edition with the 304 and it got around 6 miles to the gallon and they called it guzzy, he wrecked it on some ice on the way to the hunt club one morning and when I got mine we started calling it Guzzy.

    I'm just over 170k now

    Jeeps are like pets... they have the tendency name themselves after a while. The XJ I have now named it self Blue Boy. Don't know the inspiration on this. "Blue Boy" is a 200 year old painting and later I find out it's the nickname of a head member of a notorious outlaw bike gang. The one I had before that named it self the Black B**ch.... Don't ask.

    Brooks, you've come a long way since the first time we went to "Red Bank" almost 10 years ago.

    What did you drive out there? Your last name sounds familiar but I can't remember what you drove or your first name. I had the 97 TJ on 32's with stock suspension. I came out there a couple times and rode with y'all. Name is Curtis
