You definitely have a great looking Jeep. But, you certainly take some fantastic pictures!

BTW, look what I finally got.

When people think of wheeln' around Phoenix Arizona, desert and rocks seem to be the overall response. But if you head north for a couple of hours, you can be transported into an entirely different world that's covered in trees and other green vegetation. There is even this phenomenon called rain, where water actually falls from the sky itself! Thought I'd give this area a shot and I loved it. Here are some shots from the weekend trip around Jerome and Cottonwood, more specifically on Smiley Rock Trail.

Very nice build and thread. I am a new jeep owner and inspired by all the mods and pics. Let the modding begin.

Is there any future in that line, ie did you back out or finish it out?
I finished that line. It is the Gatekeeper obstacle for the trail called Front Range in Sand Hollow.
Here is a link to a video clip of it.

I like it. I thought the line went right (passenger) which looked problematic

Quarantine Upgrades...Well the first thing I installed was a Rusty's Offroad full underbody skid system. This thing has a perfect fit but when the instructions tell you to have an assistant or two for the heavy lifting, you listen. I didn't and struggled on my back, under the Jeep in my garage, using hands, feet, Jack stands and floor jacks to get that fuel tank skid into place. Believe me folks, its no joke.
Then I installed a Synergy sector shaft and track bar brace. Instant improvement with steering response. I didnt believe the hype at first, but am now a follower.
Last but not least....39" BFG KM3s mounted on Black Rhino Crawler beadlock wheels. Time for new articulation testing for proper tuck and droop. Right off the bat, OEM Rubicon rock rails need to be trimmed at the front of each rail. Removed them for the time being to decide to trim or go with aftermarket rails. And as you can see by the scale, the new wheel/tire package is 20 pounds heavier than my previous 38" Pats on Rugged Ridge XHD wheels.
