    Default Getting Back Into It



    Hello All!
    I am just getting back into the off road/4x4 fun and excited to join the club and explore the trails. Use to have an early Bronco and a '80 CJ5 I built up and wheeled with but had to sell about 15 years ago because of, you know... life happens.
    My current project is a 2002 Jeep TJ that I'm just finishing the current build on and excited to get it out for its maiden run. Here is a pic of it in the garage. Ill post a better one later.
    Thanks!

    Welcome, and cool rig. What are those rings around the inside of the lip on your rims? Some sort of stiffeners for when you bash them on rocks?

    Beadlocks, helps keep tire from unseating on the wheel at low air pressure.

    True bead locks indeed. Im a big believer that if you're going to build something, it has to be functional over looks. Looks are just the bonus.

    Oh and I love cookies!
