    you definitely should. have a pretty good sized run coming up on oct 13-14.

    theres more damage than the pics show but the tons have helped the body a lot because the tires stick out a good bit now.

    Yeah, its the only way up that ledge. The rock is undercut and taller than a 42 (hard to tell in the vid) so u have to run the pass side on the edge of the creek. And adding to that, no one had been up that section for over a year so the rocks were so slimy that you couldnt stand up on them.

    Good job. Were you driving? I'm confused why you don't drive.

    So overall are you pleased on how it performed? Any carnage to report?

    very pleased with how it performed, tires are a huge improvement. i had never made that ledge in the second video before the 41.5's. also walked a couple other spots that usually give me a hard time. no carnage on this trip, maybe a dent or two.
    still need to do a little more trimming on the passenger side front and rear but nothing major.

    Is your bro new to wheeling? He did a good job on that water fall.
