Last week at Pacific Beach, the campground, I was spinning around on the sand. Now I can say I've wheeled coast to coast (the bragging part). The last time my cherokee was in sand was at Jacksonville, FL. Sand leaves real cool tracks when ya get done spinning around.

I agree, Beach (or dune) driving is A LOT of fun ! It leaves cool tracks but it sure is a pain in the ass when you hit something underneath your rig with a hammer (six months later) and get both eyes (ears, nose & mouth) loaded with sand! :smsoap:

That reminds me I need to spray underneath, get all that salt/ sand out of there. There was some soft spots, would hate to get stuck on the beach.

I was going to say, wheeling on the beach is fun, but a real pain to protect everything from afterwards. lots of sand and salt can do really long term damage.

I still like the SNOW!!

I like the snow too, it makes a easy forest road challenging. (see last 4x trip post). Hell, for some, it makes any road challenging.
I seem to remember alot more snow around Western Wash. when I was younger. Sea level type snow.

Yep, this year has been really bad for snow fall, most of the skiing is not even open!!

I've got my Lift too!! RE6030 3.5". Those big black Leaf Springs look awesome. I didn't get the opportunity to dig into the rest (yet). More pics soon!! The OME Shocks don't look as lonesome in the garage anymore!

I'm going to have to wait 'til after this weekend though...:(

Install was pretty quick, wasn't it? ;)

Keeps you from getting any splashies up into the filter, too.

I would say that I have so much rust on my drivetrain that I don't care about salt. But all of those freshly powdercoated Rubicon Express parts change my mind.

Mark: Plan on a SYE. See you Saturday.

Splashies up into my filter?? Is that like getting bubbles up my whoopsiedaisie? ;) :spin1:

Indeed.

As long as we're bragging I'll add that I'm getting my new MTRs put on tomorrow, gears are in the shop waiting to go in, header and rear No-Slip will be here Thursday!

Well, there goes that tax return, lol.

Or what about Scott and I getting ****ed on the Wall Trail. Or the TJ that just wanted to roll over and play dead. Or Mike's optional exit. Or the fact that NO major parts broke.
Brian not flipping his Jeep.

Jason

I have NEVER seen anyone drive a jeep on ONE tire and not roll. :eek:

What are my priorities to purchase for more bragging? LOL

Thanks Guys

Set it up, brothers. Let's go on a Sunday this time. I will be ready by then. Evans would be just the place to test my gear. **** I'm excited to get back out on the trail...

Mark is that the "EASY" trail? Those roots look like thet are about to come out and touch your hood. :laugh3:

Jason in my opinion I would get skid protection. I used the hell out of my rocker and tc skids.

I probably will do that after April...

Perhaps we can set up something for a 3 day weekend? I know how it is to wheel Sunday and not have a day to recover before going to work. Especially worse if something breaks and needs a day of work to fix. :gag:

Ok, quick question now that I found someone who has bought that intake, how does it compare to the K&N FIPK Gen II, just curious. Airaid's is a lot cheaper. That is why I was looking into it. Anyone know if they are worth the money (Airaid) that is?

Thanks,
Silent

HOLY DEAD THREAD REVIVAL!!

Um... been about a year now and I've mashed through a lot of puddles and mud (Not like Matt, of course! ;) ). This Airaid is fantastic but I have nothing to compare it with except stock.

I will say, it's EASY to maintain and sounds COOL when you MASH the accelerator... :P Power? You bet!
