The two best places in the state, at least for rock crawling type stuff, are Clayton and Disney. It's been over 15 years since I've been to Clayton. Back then it was mostly old logging roads that were open to the public. Now there are a couple off road parks that use some of the same trails. I've ne...

Most of the long UCAs I seen advertise more adjustability for lifted vehicles. I have gone to two shops. One was a bunch of idiots and took it for a test drive then came back and said I had some major problems and need new end links, ball joints, ect. And that was after I told them I had lifted it a...

No I don't. They would not even put it on the rack. The guy looked at the way the tires were positioned, leaning out at the top, and saw the camber adjusters were already maxed out. He said there was nothing more he could adjust. No problem with the other input. I like hearing other's ideas. I agree...

On the R51. It's paid off but still my wife's daily driver. If if holds up over the next couple years and doesn't become a money pit, I would like to turn it into an expeditionary rig when we get her something else. I think overall it has a good foundation to start with. A fully boxed frame with a ...

Yes, I know they already come with a solid rear axle. I'm talking about the front. Converting an IRS to solid axle is a fairly easy process. Converting an IFS is not. That is why I would use their conversions as a guide, since we all have the same front ends.

Yeah, I'm not sure what is going on either. I know others here run them with no issues, so I figured I would put it out there for ideas. I checked out the long uca's and you are right. They are pricey. I don't want to put that kind of money in it now as I plan on going solid axle in the future. The ...

Bilstein 5100 Lift Question

I finally got around to lifting the Pathy. I installed Bilstein 5100 height adjustable shocks on the front and spacers in the rear. I also put camber adjust bolts in the front. I've taken it to a couple alignment shops and they told me the camber is set all the way out and they can't do nothing with...

Those were good. I had seen a few of them before, but not all of them. I noticed the logo on one of the videos is the same as this guys:

I guess they are related in some way. Check out all of his if you get a chance they are pretty good, too.

I cannot say for a fact, but I don't see why it would not. The overall diameter of those tires vs stock are not that much different.

That looks very cool. I like the black wheels and the Duratracs. They make it look a lot more aggressive. The stance it about perfect. So is it not possible to replace only the bushings, maybe with a better quality bushing? Also, what mileage are y'all at? I've noticed ours is feeling looser lately ...
