    Started the day with gold mountain trail and ended with Holcomb creek trail in Big Bear CA which was a bit of a challenge. Even some of the jeeps I wheel with had some issues with Holcomb Creek.

    Never wheeled it myself but know holcomb can be a rowdy time if you want to make it harder for sure. Good to see some rocks and crawling back in this thread. :headbang:

    Yea there was plenty of lines not doable in my tacoma for sure. A pic of my friends Jeep on 37s, he managed to almost get it stuck doing a pretty decent line.

    I've done a shit ton a wheeling recently but all my pics are of the other trucks, not mine lol,

    Narliest thing I have done this year was Eagle Rock down in the Springs, let me with a scraped up driveshaft and some body damage

    But here we are coming down Black Bear the other week, pretty smoky otherwise would have been awesome view

    Went to Moab this weekend, but didn’t get any pics. Only did hell’s and fins because I was with a couple guys with no armor. The only fun obstacle I did was escalator, and I don’t even have pics of that. Oil catch can is pretty high on my list since I burned some more oil on that one

    Any of you guys have any experience with hammer hangers over shackle flip kits? Im finally getting rid of the stock hangers.

    so it seems like a lot of people love archives hammer hangers, I don’t see a lot of people on flip kits. I feel like flip kits would provide more droop but hangers would offer more stability? Idk, I don’t have much experience on either, other than the stock ones that like to bend.

    @In4aride I believe I remember you mentioning a company that made quality shackles, someone with a 2nd gen bought some.

    Yeah @CGoss has them. Our buddy Bryson from Boostwerks engineering makes them in the foco/loveland area of Colorado. They are a ballistic joint based shackle and are absolute beef. I will say same thing I say to everyone, if you wheel super hard and get off camber a ton, a panhard is highly highly recommend. The upside to then is their downfall. The allow the leaf to rotate where a bushing won't, allowing more free travel without binding up. However in really of camber stuff they can unload to one side of the other. That's where panhard comes in. We were blowing out 16" shocks on the xj because it wanted to travel so much more than we clearance for. (would travel enough for stem to bend due to body hitting frame rails)
    As far as flip or hammer set up, is all about use and preference. I would do flip before hammer hanger setup, although archive makes a killer product.

    17-8.5-0 and 37-12.5. It's up about 3" right now, going to come down about inch.

    The shackles Mike recommended to me are awesome, they do provide alot of lift though and I don't think an off the shelf shackle flip will work with them. I will be installing a panhard when I get around to it. I wanted to see how it felt without first. So far I'm on stock leaf springs and I can max out a 14inch shock. I'm still playing with it and trying dial it in. Currently I have some axle wrap and I'm trying decide if I want to build a bastard pack, go chevy 63s or buy a new stiffer leaf pack.

    Yeah I'll have to do more research, from quick searches I've read that you don't need a traction bar with 63s, and I'm not too heavy so it might work out better to do 63s and get more travel, than stock leafs and a traction bar. Weird thing is , I didn't have axle wrap until after I went to rocky gap, I think the axle wrap killed my driveshaft flange.

    Just caught up from page 30. You all have been killing it on the trails. Very impressed.

    @In4aride, didn't look like you made it out to Penrose Commons this year. Any plans? I would sure like to see that linked setup a little closer or in action.

    @In4aride @CGoss
    Ah, shit. The pan hard bar might push me to just do Archives Hammer hangers. I can’t weld good enough to trust my work and I’m not sure if the labor costs would be worth it. I guess at that point I’d rather just keep going and link it or do a 63 swap.

    My OEM hangers are slightly bent, and my OME leaf pack is mustaching bad so I need to overhaul the rear end. I might just do Deaver Springs with archive hangers and call it a day.

    Yeah we just had zero free time this year. After heating up the steering out here a few times, I'll likely wait for the hydro to be in to hit the commons. It's a whale on the trails already, so having shit for steering definitely won't be of any help. Still on the list though.
