Just browsing again, so I thought I might as well register, (I just hope nobody reads the rig description)

BTW, I can't seem to find a little Wrangler icon to put in my messages. . . .?

Since Brother_of_Jefe keeps bringing this to the top i figured I'd update it again

Here's my truck with 35's on a Natural RTI ramp

Heres one reason not to put 35's on with only 4.5" of lift. (I can't put my hand in any farther)

BTW John. . the Moderators may not like your signature being over 6 lines :D

Yeah,......I can't tell if that Jeep is supposed to be driving on a road of pebbles, or if that's the sound he makes as he's driving the Jeep. ;) :p

So how is it that you did not roll over in that pic? What is holding you up on the other side?

From watching the video countless times, I figure that nearly all of the weight was on the right rear sidewall/rim. Just after posing for that pic I attempted to pull further forward, and on video, you can see my left rear nearly leave the ground. :eek: Needless to say, I stopped and backed back down.

Front locker!

Woo-hoo! I can attest to that! (and my neighbors too.) The first "ka-chunks" could be heard up and down the driveway.

and LOVE that Atlas!

Let's see. . .35's, 4.88's, Atlas 3.8, front and rear no-slip lockers. . . . .it's UNSTOPPABLE!

powertrax no-slip - special for the late-model-Explorer-Dana35-IFS-etc-etc-etc.

really only possible after he replaced the Ford "auto" 4WD with the Atlas

so do you like it? love it? does it live up to all the dreams of having a locked front?
