I wish I could've gone man. Being busy sucks. We'll go up one of these weekends.

how much lift....? What size tires and what kind...? A locker in the rear would make a world of difference.

Looks like what I am going to try doing (the off-roading) with mine soon....

I've been wanting to go up there too. Your truck did fine, and I bet the video doesnt do it justice. The second vid tried to point that out.

I ahve some video I need to get uploaded, although I need to get a new Mini cam to transfer from tape to computer, the output jack on my cam is screwed up.

Okay, my bad. I thought it was one of your videos where I saw the rear one-wheel-wonder. I have a lock-right in my old S-10 2WD and have been planning to move it to the Jimmy before I go wheeling. They do work really well.

What did you air your tires down to...? I looked at the courser CTs because I had Courser ATs on my '99 Blazer and liked them. The local shop that sells the CTs wanted too much for the 31x10.50-15s I wanted for my Jimmy so I balked. Ended up with Firestone ATs and other than a puny mud lug, they have worked on the wife's suburban for years. I won't be tackling super mud with these though.

How's your CB antenna mounted on the spare tire carrier? And where did you route the wire?
