    I only have OME shocks on the back. I have SAW coil overs up front so when I add the arb I will adjust them up if need be.

    Thanks! I couldn't pass up the ARB. It was less than $400 AND I just sold the alcan leafs for $250 so the timing of everything was great.

    Yesterday me and a few KYTTORA and Kentucky crawler members made a run to Slade. This was basically a shake down run after lift and tires. I am very happy with everything at this point. I figured out the 255's rub quite a bit in the back but I haven't trimmed at all so I'm not very surprised.

    I don't have very many pictures of mine but here are a few I took of some other rigs. After I get the other pics emailed to me I'll add them too.

















    Also here is a video of me going up carburetor hill. I was pretty tense, on the left its a 200' drop and to the right is a 300' drop so not much room for error.

    Lets get some opinions on wheels. Should I paint the stock wheels graphite, black or keep them silver? I've also thought about going with a set of black steel wheels but I am kind of partial to the stock wheels. Whats everyone's thoughts?

    If your fender flares have faded already, the gun metal paint will match them perfectly.

    Nice. It was pretty smart of the Rover and Jeep guys to bring you along in case they had problems with the stuck.

    Nothing to major butI added a set of color matched fender flares. I think they look much better than the original black ones.

    Was hoping to make it but had a test for school that following Monday so didn't make it anywhere that weekend. Mid terms are this week so hopefully sometime very soon I'll be able to go wheeling. You have any planned trips coming up?
