    Made it home with no issues. The Dodge needs deeper gears and the AC went out on the ride home. Will need to fix that before the trip.

    Jeep stuff:
    Need to fix oil and carb issue.
    Want to move the fuel lines to where the old gas tank was. Need to cut a new hole in the floor of the jeep.
    Need to mount the fuel cell so it doesn't move.

    Im happy with how the jeep worked and it was fun wheeling something open/open on 31's. Its been a long long time since I had done that.

    Great job out there guys! You listened well and didn't do anything too stupid Cant wait to get some more runs in.
    Touch the cow. Do it NOW!

    I think Alan would disagree with your last statement.

    Ug... I just examined the bottom of my Jeep. Lots of bent metal down there, and a rotational noise coming from one end of the Jeep. Fun times.

    I have some front bumper scrapes and on the front skid Kredit made me.

    Coming down steps, my rear shackles took the blows. I guess that makes my departure angle better than a Jeep since I never drug bumper?

    I've needed a steering pump (leak) for over 5yrs so maybe fixing that will keep my steering going when I get on some of the rocks. It boiled over on the drive up (little bit of white smoke from non-exhaust side of engine). But to be honest, I overfilled it since I know it leaks.

    I was pretty stoked to see the front suspension cycle so much with Kredit's arm design/coilovers.



    This little instagram fake tilt shift of Jimmy came out well
