OK guys it's official... we found a place to rent in Hurricane UT and we will be 15 minutes from Sand Hollow and 30 mins from Zion National Park!! Excited is an understatement. Only a mere 9 hours from Yellowstone, Yosemite and... The Rubicon Trail plus 5 hours from Moab.
We leave 10/17 so we are less than a month away now. East Coast visitors will be welcomed and I encourage you to book the spare bedrooms now... lol.

Don't worry, I'm not leaving this thread even if you want me to :)

Leave your wheels and tires behind and I’ll sell them for you in a couple of months.

Congrats man, that's awesome! Too bad we never got a chance to wheel together but it was nice to finally meet you and the inimitable Fat Ninja that day.

After a bunch of running around for tools, flapper wheels, and chemicals, I’ve got the first bracket installed and finished. 3 more to go.

Bonus picture of me sending Bret a picture of his lift everyday until he gets new wheels. Lol. (...Day 2)

Wow, I regret not going Teraflex again, I did get the adjustable stabilizer though!

I installed the Evo 2.5 inch Enforcer Stage 2 lift over the weekend... the front anyway. I did a small writeup on the Gladiator Forum here:

https://www.jeepgladiatorforum.com/forum/threads/evo-enforcer-2-5-stage-2-installation.35188/

In summary:
- 2.5 inches was actually 4 inches
- Missing bolts, unaware sales reps, required hardware store run
- Poor instructions, much guessing
- Driver-side spring bow - maybe this is my fault?

I have a buddy who owns a shop, going to have him do the rear and get the tires/wheels put on at the same time I don't have the heart to tackle the rear haha

I am glad I certainly have room now for 37s!

Got one side done. As I go to finish the last letter I ripped it and had to salvage it from the other side. Oh well, looks cool though. Anyone wanna trade for a red dash?

Done! Very happy with the outcome, and glad I went 37s. Ready for Dicky Bell!

Looks good!

Hard to believe I used to scoff at 37s... :headbang:

I haven't been too active on here in the last few months and also haven't really taken advantage of UWharrie this season. Between the late opening, being stuck in the shop for a month and just the joys of starting a new business during COVID, it has kept me away. I really enjoyed my first trip out a few months ago with everyone, even with Mike and the Fat Ninja.

Since I am still stock with no winch, I would like to go out with a group that is patient and doesn't mind a slower newbie. I tackled DB rock garden both ways last time and wouldn't mind doing it again but I also never got a chance to hit up the other trails. Money is tight so I am trying to avoid anything that has high potential to break something (at least of high value) with my stock rig. With all that being said, anyone interested in going this weekend? This will also be the first time my wife and daughter (6) will be tagging a long for the experience.

Well, nothing except the front side of Daniel will give you any trouble at all. The rock garden on DB is about as difficult as it gets at URE, I wouldn't worry about breaking anything.
