  1. One last thing to mention, if you want to go but don't want to get there early they do shoot all day long and into the night until 9pm.
  2. Happy b-day to you Happy b-day to you You look like a Jeepster And you smell like one too!
  3. Let me start by stating this is not an actual Jeep run. This is an event put on by MG Shooters twice a year where folks basically bring out all types of firearms, artillery, weapons, etc. and shoot/blow stuff up for 3 days (Fri.-Sun.). This event is about 10 miles NE of Wikieup (as the crow flies) and costs $35 per spectator, $35 is for a 3 day pass. 12 miles after passing Wikieup on the right hand side is a dirt road called Lower Trout Creek Rd. You turn right onto this road and follow the signs that take you to the event. This is a maintained dirt road that a 2wd car can easily travel on. Map link of the dirt road: http://mgshooters.com/img/maps/normalway-map1.png I haven't been to this event in about 5-6 years but have gone to it several times and it's always a blast (no pun intended) to watch. MG Shooters has a "rental tent" where you pay to shoot fully automatic weapons. They have a variety of different weapons at different rental prices. Website link: http://mgshooters.com/index.php There's no rig limit, obviously, and I figured this would be fun for anyone, especially gun enthusiasts such as myself to go watch for the day. They have food and drink available for purchase at the event but obviously you can bring your own. Shooting starts at 9am so it's best to get there a little ahead of that. Meet up time is 7:45am at Wikieup Trading Post then leave from there by 8:15am to get to the event. Shooting schedule: 9am-12pm, 1 hour break, 1pm-4pm, then from dark-9pm. Meet up location: map SIGN UP
  4. Also wanted to mention that spectators can camp (free) overnight if desired. Visit MG Shooters website (link in my first post) for info and check out the pics and videos of past events, lots of cool stuff to see!

  6. Update on the Metalcloak drop down brackets: After yesterdays run and more freeway driving there's a HUGE difference in how my Jeep drives now. When I first bought my rig it had terrible handling, especially on the freeway, actually kinda scary with how bad it wandered. Always had to have 2 hands on the wheel to keep it under control. Now I can drive with one hand barely holding the steering wheel and my rig drives basically like a normal vehicle, nice and straight for the most part and no wandering. Bumps, pot holes, etc. are barely noticeable to where as before they were a bit violent when hitting them. Offroading is much better now, smoother and my steering wheel doesn't jerk back and forth nearly as violent as before. Braking is a hint better than before as well. All in all, these drop down brackets are awesome! If I had known about control arm angle/geometry and how important it is and how much difference it makes I would have bought and installed them much sooner. I want to thank @Stacey and Scott & @4x4tographer for explaining (while on the Bolder Pass run) about the geometry and opening my eyes, so to speak, about the importance of control arm positioning.
  7. Installed the Metalcloak drop down brackets and TeraFlex shocks today. After a quick test drive there's definitely a difference (for the better) with how how my rig drives now. Real test will be during tomorrows run.
  8. I actually went out and looked at mine a few mins after you posted, it won't fit, thanks anyway!
  9. BUMMER! My JK is a 2008 otherwise I'd take that switch panel off your hands. Going to eventually need something of that nature when I add switches for an e-locker, lights, etc.
  10. NO MORE OIL LEAK! Had the upper oil pan gasket replaced today so no more oil leaks/drips or burning oil smell.
  11. Nice ride! Let take our matching Lambo's for a cruise!
  12. You should play the lotto! What are the chances of you getting a pic in just abut the exact same spot, just about a year apart and with 2 red Jeeps in BOTH pics... WOW!
  13. Absolutely awesome pics as usual! Here are a few Sarah took, and videos in the link https://photos.app.goo.gl/zatjqYE1qScFg48H7
