    Arizona Rock Crawling Daily Driver

    I added a cross member to that track bar mount, it runs from the track bar mount to the frame on the other side. Of course I am in full support of the stretch, but in the meantime you could just weld that crack and then run a cross member.

    I was not in downhill/rock garden shape on this last trip but I did feel pretty good on some of the climbs and got a few PRs on climbing sections. Need to get more practice on the downhills and in the rocks to get back in shape to rail them. I actually just converted my bike back to SS and...

    Hot Springs has more rock and less clay compared to Hawk Pride. If it is wet you're jeep will come with much less mud on it than from an Alabama or TN park. It's a little bigger overall compared to Hawk Pride. Hot Springs is a great park and a highly recommend giving it a go.

    With the Jeep all fixed and ready to wheel again. I made the decision to stick with the 37" BFG Reds for Hot Springs and headed out on Wed afternoon for Hot Springs. A friend of mine offered up his van for me to use in lieu of tent camping, he bought a Sprinter van and did a DIY camper van...

    Prepping the Jeep for being trail guide at the Jeep Jamboree in Hot Springs and I thankfully found that the Passenger side lower ball joint had failed and that the Pitman Arm had developed some fatigue cracks. The ball joint was a spicer and only had three trail days on it. Pretty sure that...

    Nashville TJ's Build - Continued

    Have oxy-acet, plasma, grinder and recently came to realization that no matter how much I want this Dana 44 to work for me that it won't. Reality is painful and expensive!

    Nashville TJ's Build - Continued

    I just got 3 days out of a brand new set of Dana 44 Spicer joints. Summit Racing is sending me a new kit and provided the following quote "typically failure on these parts is either quick or they last a very long time.". So looks like mine fell in the quick category. Kudos to Summit who has...

    Never rode in Copper Harbor but I have ridden in upstate Michigan. I was amazed at how sandy the trails were.

    Yeah, I think Brent sold it to a guy named Minnow and then Scott bought it from Minnow. The only reason I remember that name "Minnow" is because it was unique :-)

    MTB brakes

    I personally don't do a lot of long downhill runs, I am more of a XC and trail rider so take what I say with a grain of salt. You should be able to lock up that rear wheel with ease, even with the 2 piston. Possibly you need a better bleed. I run a 160mm with XTR 2 piston brakes rear and can...

    Scott has owned that jeep for a few years now, but it used to be owned by Brent at Hooker Motorsports in Ashland City. Here is the details of that rig:

    RCV sent me an email last night that they shipped out a rebuild kit. The below is just capturing my thoughts after the AZ trip and something that I can come back to the next time I am planning a big trip and not really looking for debate, but if you have anything that you want to add, please...
