    With these big ol' tires....nobody has had an issue with the EAS wiring in the front left wheel well? I have done the mod whereby I moved it to the top of the frame via zip-tie, but my 32.6" Cooper still ripped it down last weekend and caused a suspension fault.

    (interestingly enough, everything still worked! Only effect was the EAS dumping air when I turned off the engine)

    No idea really but my guess is they saw the tree car wash and decided to salvage their paint jobs.

    I should have use a pulley but I didn’t realize I was buried as I was.

    No one had any issues they all did the same thing as you.

    Glad you enjoyed the write up and thank you for the support!

    I just finished doing all the planning for Coal Country II and I am watching the spots fill up pretty quick for a overland trip across PA, MD and ending in WV.

    Good point. That can get ugly and expensive.

    I was there when that challenge was posted. It made my blood boil. I wished so bad I was in a position to enter.... I knew the moment the Lucky8 men, and ArmyRover pulled the trigger, IT WAS ON!!!

    I knew from that moment, "Rover's", would be finishing there Rally. I also know Rover people good enough to know it was never about winning either.

    I cheered the team on every second of the way.

    Great write up ArmyRover!
