After joining and then not posting for over a year (working for a start-up company requiring 60-hour weeks); this should probably be my last post in the "new-guy" section!

We sold our CJ5 to a fellow who runs an off-road company called ORZ over in California; he is shipping it to his father in Germany where CJ's are apparently very popular.
The funds were then invested in our previously stock '03 Rubicon, which now sports a Metalcloak 3.5" lift (with the OME shocks), 35" Goodyear MTR's on steel rims and a LOD rear bumper/swing away set-up.

We re-ran the Gold Bar Rim and Steel Bender trails at Moab this past April and it performed well.

My only complaint about any of the new equipment is that the designated high-lift mounting location on the LOD swing-away will NOT work with a hardtop.
All of their brochures and pictures on-line show it being used on a soft-top set-up and their was no advisory about it not being compatible with the rear lift-up window....
After finding that to be the fact the hard way, I contacted them about it and really got no more than an "oh well" in response....

I won a 10K lb rated winch with a raffle ticket bought at a Jeep show that I had the M715 entered in and plan on putting that on the Rubicon this fall.
