why BD hasnt been at raids? ***EDIT MORE BIG PICTURES***

Postby Blooddrive » Sat Apr 03, 2010 11:49 pm

after spending all my extra time, plus some raid time, i finished the jeep, with time to spare,
and headed out to easter jeep safari in moab, utah. if you arent familiar with it, it is the jeep
sturgis, basically. we ran golden spike the first day, a 7 rated trail (lockers, 35" tires, winch
are all required) as my first run on this new jeep. mine only rides on 33" tires, and i know,
most of the ladies will tell you that extra 2" makes all the difference, right? well, not this time!
skill and a tuned suspension set up by the guys at Rokmen.com here in denver let me crawl thru
the whole 35 miles of this trail without a single scratch to the body, and only 2 scratches to the
rear undercarriage from two 3foot drops (very minor at that!)
we started the trail at 8 am, and hit pavement again at 730 pm. we had to leave one jeep on the
trail from a massive break up, one doofus went over on his side (minor scratches only), had 3
broken u-joins all on rear axles (they finished in front wheel drive only, being towed over the major
obstacles. and two broken rear carriers, and somehow, one guy lost his entire brake system. over
all, not bad for the 41 jeeps that made up our group. i had some nice compliments after, since
several of the bigger rigs had major problems getting over the same obstacles that i casually drove
over. i picked a single pic for now and might post more, depends how they look.

and my friend scott doing the same spot in his jeep

and here is the same spot, with an idiot showing how to look stupid (to jeep people) doing the
same run.

Wow man nice pics. Grats on the jeep it looks sweet and looks like it could run over even Balday's big ass.

Oh and don't worry.... I've been keeping Aglaca's mom warm for you when you get back.

Ciao!!

Of course I could be totally wrong and be talking out of my ass too so your mileage may vary

huge advantage. im running a 104 wheel base with it. it was stable as hell, and i didnt end up in the same
groove so man others got stuck in. i love it just for the extra foot of storage in the back too.
the most telling thing was the suspension kit i put on. the guys at rokmen jeep have been tweaking their
setup on TJ's since they came out, and have it dialed in. i was flexing and keeping all 4 tires on the ground
with only 2.5 inches of lift, compared to many people with 6 inches who were still lifting tires on the same
obstacles.
the only complaint i have right now is i need to re-gear it to about 5.13, or at least 4.88. i struggle a little
on the freeway hills and im only running 33's. ill have to regear before i get my 37's later this year :)
