I followed the creek bed looking for stable ground. I found a ledge hidden by lots of grass...

Needless to say it took lots of phone calls, an angry parks worker, two more jeeps and nightfall before the end result!

Sweet stuff man!!! I love the mud to,.. but damn boy you need some tires on that thing!!
I don't have any pics of my mud truck since I got it done,. but got a short video the first day we took it out. Hit a pretty deep hole.. not bad for an old 1/2 ton truck.

Now that looks awesome chain!

I got my YJ off a guy that didnt believe in oil changes... or much else maintence wise so my bro-in-law and I are slowly fixing it back up. For god sakes all the dude did was put two inch shackle lifts on it just so he could squeeze in 33s... Its getting there, we just got a set of full doors and we have to reweld the tub. Cant decide on a 4 or 6 in lift with a new set of 4.11s. I have more pics tomorrow from tonights dabacle.

Thats cool man, and thats what its all about. Buy something then make it your own to fit your style. As for lift,.. you have a ton of things to consider when you start lifting something up. A couple of inchs can mean a couple thousand more dollars. In my case Im running a 4" kit on front (custom 4 link in the rear) but to bump up to 6" I would have to change a lot of stuff out where the 4" was pretty much just springs. Not to mention the extra 2" would start to getting my front drive shaft at a steep angle for my U Joints, and I would of probably had to beef them up. So if your on a budget, just make sure you check exactly what all has to be replaced before you start ordering parts
