I met Dee McNenny thru this page while out there this summer, Great lady! She is a local wheeler. Very active in the area.

I met Dee a few years ago and she pre-ran Plan B trail in St George with me. She has a very well built LJ on 40s and is extremely competent - good driver and good spotter.

Well, I got a few little things done to the Jeep. Before I went to Moab, added a full set of EVO Pro Tek Skid plates, GraBars, Mopar slush mats, Daystar hood latches. Nothing exciting, so didn't take pics.

Thursday I ordered a Teraflex 2.5" lift with Rancho 9000XL shocks and other supporting goodies, Teraflex HD hinge and tire carrier, and a new front driveshaft. Also bought some 285/75r17 Nitto Ridge Grapplers from Discount Tire. Gonna be a mild build. I must be getting old, because each Jeep I build gets smaller than the last one, lol.

I'll throw some pics up as I go.

I got the lift installed this weekend. I'm gonna be sore this week. Getting old sucks, lol. A very mild build in progress, but that's what I'm going for this time. It almost looks stock at first glance, but has just a little more off road performance. TeraFlex 2.5" coil lift, Rancho 9000XL shocks, Tereflex lower front Sport Arms, JKS front and rear adjustable track bars, 285/75r17 Nitto Ridge Grapplers on stock Rubicon wheels.

I have a few more items to throw on, but it's getting there.

Here's a couple pics.

Very nice! You need to get it on the trail for some custom pinstripes along the sides and a little sheet metal customization .

Already planning next year's vacations. I foresee more Colorado, more Moab. Probably a trip to Hot Springs, AR as well.

This weekend I installed a new Adams front driveshaft, and a Teraflex HD hinged carrier and mount. Front bumper and winch showed up, but rear bumper is back ordered. Hope to get it soon. No pics. I'm getting lazy.
