We have an 18’ car hauler. Our neighbor has a Polaris rzr 170 and I always told him when his daughter outgrew it to let me know and I’ll buy it from him. Well he surprised me on Saturday and gave it to my son. We’re going to put bigger tires and wheels on it and trick it out a bit and show him it on Christmas. That said, we’re going to want to take it with us when we wheel so he can do some trails too.

The Jeep and buggy won’t fit on the current trailer so I ordered a new car hauler. 28’ GN with steel deck and drive over fenders. Same color as the Jeep too. Will pick it up on my way to get the Jeep whenever it comes in. Hopefully the trailer will be ready before the Jeep and it won’t create anymore delay

Tires came in at the dealership today

Jeep hit the dealership today. Getting the tires and wheels installed. As soon as I get the call that the Trailer is ready, we will be headed that way. Tools and parts are patiently waiting for install. Home stretch!

Trailer was supposed to be delayed but they ended up coming thru. Had lasik done on both eyes yesterday. Had a follow up at 0715, and we’re on the road to get it all. Dealership sent this teaser pic. The trim rings will be powder coated to match the paint, they are a little to brite for my taste. Should be home tomorrow and the work will begin.

Picked the Jeep and Trailer up this weekend. Was a lot of driving. Ended up doing the bumper last night. Had lasik done Friday morning and while doing the lift got a piece of metal in my eye. Had to go back to the eye doctor again today since I had my follow up this morning. The dr waited an hour for me to get there and get it out. She wasn’t impressed. Got the front on but having hell with the lower control arms. Rear should go quick tomorrow.

They have less than 100 miles on them so far but they are quiet as can be. I know that’ll change once they start getting some wear but honestly it’s one of more quiet vehicles and we’re loving it. Easy to have conversations still

Installed the metalcloak gamechanger rocksport, FAD skid and steering stabilizer relocation bracket, and Sunday night did the bumper with x20. Planning on doing the MC skids tomorrow and regear to 5.13s on the 23rd. Just rolled over 90 miles. Alignment tomorrow

Hey you got your Jeep finally!!
Looks like you need to adjust front and rear caster a bit when you do the alignment. Did the Game Changer come with adjustable control arms?
Still planning on the ROAM sliders??

It finally came in! Yes, the caster needs to be adjusted bad. It’s pretty loose when you drive now. After I drop my boy off at school I’m going to a buddies place that aligns everything. I saved a screen shot of a guy here to get then started. Want the rear axle to be centered also. Went off MC guide but it’s just to get you to the alignment shop.

It comes with all new control arms. Big and beefy!

Yes on the roam sliders and rear bumper tire carrier. We are wanting the west coast sliders since they don’t have the lights and are kicked out a bit for the rear passenger. According to Anthony, he’s going to try and get me both around the middle of January. My boy is having hell getting in it and he’s a huge 6 year old

Haha yeah I spent about 5 weeks waiting on some other sliders, then gave up after realizing they were not even frame mounted - and not yet ready for prime time... so happy I did, cuz I got some I liked a lot better and were frame mounted (JCR Off-Road Crusader Rock Sliders).

Anyways, looking forward to some more pics of your GOAT build... May have to come out your way and maybe hit up General Sams too... :rock:

If you like mud, that’s your place. We took our old rhino out there exactly one time and that was more than enough for me. I hate cleaning mud and it seems like even 2 years later I could still find traces of it. Didnt help I was trying to show my brother the dangers of crusted over mud pits and how they look safe to walk on but they aren’t. Well I was showing him a little to well and ended up falling thru and caught myself at my neck level. Nope, no thanks. If you come out this way let me know.

I think roam could really be a leader in the market place but they are falling short by over promising and under delivering. Why advertise stuff when it’s not available for months? The website sucks and I hear they don’t include instructions.
