Caribou Trail, CO 11/21/08

Kat and I went out yesterday to test out the clearance of my Poly lift. Everything looks great except I'm rubbing my skid row tranny skid on the front axle. I grinded it down but not nearly enough. I think I might pull it and just notch it out. I don't thing there is much room for adjustment. I also about tore off my pass front fender under full flex in the v-notch last pic..

Anyway this trail was moderately easy. A few good playgrounds and rock gardens. The shelf road on the way out was definitely not designed for a jeep of JK proportions!! We were against rock wall faces and crumbling ledges with maybe 2 inches to spare. We had to get a pitcher of beer and a six pack after that one!!

Nice pics. Looks like the snow bunnies are out already . No disrespect.

I still stuff my wheels in the fenders. It makes alot of noise but I have not ripped one off yet. The rocks do that for me. I went and checked my skid plate as I have the same one. I noticed some minor contact on the drivers side possibly from the front diff housing. Very slight though. How bad is it for you? I wonder if it has anything to do with pinion angle?

Just curious, now that you live in Colorado, do you miss Cali at all?

None taken... She is a cutie!!

Mine is directly contacting the left side of the skid plate pretty bad.. I grinded it down maybe 1/4 inch, but it was still in direct contact. It makes a pretty gnarly noise but has held up ok so far. I have a trail spare in case it breaks. I think I'll pull it off over Thanksgiving and just notch the **** out of it. I'm guessing the pinion angle is the culprit and the size of the axle itself. I have a lot of flex out of this kit..

As for the wheel well its nice and loose now.. Oh well it will be a good reason for tubes..
