Finally in the dirt

Finally convinced the wife that HER jeep was ready to tackle some dirt. With the 2" rusty's lift, the rocksliders, and the JK tires and wheels, I felt pretty confident. But she's only been in the dirt once before.

So we went to a local Off-road area that has a "training ground" - an area set aside for classes and other "test" spots. I drove her through a couple obstacles, she then took over and only gave up the wheel at the last one.

Here she is cruising around the flats


Lining up for her first solo hill


Almost up, nice and slow


Now, on to the "Frame Twister" - not really that scary, but we ran it 3 times, teaching her how to follow signals and when to stop on command.


Here she is, first time in her life with a wheel balanced in the air. Don't know if you can see the grin through the bugs...


continues...

Now Gone: TJ 00 4 liter, 2" RE Lift and shocks, a few extra skidplates, and not much else, 'cause all the money goes to:

Now HIS: XK 07 Limited Hemi, 2" RR lift and shocks, JK Rubicon wheels (255/75 r17 BFG MT), 1.5" Spidertrax spacers, Rocky Road Supersliders, Mopar heavy-duty rails and roof rack. Get Lost 4x4 Rear Tire Carrier. 4xGuard Belly Skid. Oh, and a spiffy dash mat.

The last one we tried was the "sluice box" - a long, large-rock course. She decided to run the camera and let me drive. With the 2" lift, I touched the undercarriage once (hard, the muffler now has a dent).


The rock sliders also earned their keep, one big scratch on them saving any scratches on the Jeep.


I have utter confidence now in this vehicle taking it anywhere within reason. It is a real Jeep!


And I dare not forget the back-seat driver, Mr. "I love bumpy roads" himself:

Love the pics, wish we had a place like that around here! What kind of wheels and tires do you have there? Spacers? They're looking good.

Also, I need to get some sliders before I break my plastic guards!

Where are you at for these?
