Long Weekend/Mud Bogs

Went up to the Mud Bogs this weekend with a bunch of buddies and partied back at his cottage all weekend and went to the mud bogs.. they weren't anything really special, so we did a little wheelin ourselves..

We also brought my buddies Blue Rubicon throught he pits... and it did decent considering it's crappy tire situation..

Well it's all based on a calculation. It is the front tire tread width (middle of pass. tire to middle of driver tire) divided by the measurement of the highest point of the frame PLUS any body lift... and that number needs to be at or higher than 1.80... So I am going to just try to get as wide as I can.. I bought 2" wheel spacers (just for inspection) so we'll see after those come in how low I need to go

You need to make friends in the inspection business, I know a guy who will pass anything for me, just call him and he'll write me up a ticket
