I didn't take any pictures today while wheeling but here is one I took on the way. Had a great time and look forward to going back tomorrow with the family!

How have you found the X-DeFlex on the road and off?

A marked improvement on road and I didn't really notice if it was limiting me off road. I think my suspension will bottom out before the X-Deflex reaches its limits.

I did drag the left side pivot/ear on some rocks, but nothing major.

Jonathan, what was the reason you did the rear not the front? IIRC people say they noticed removing the front more than the rears.

My truck didn't come with sways at all from the PO. I notice the improvement big time with the RTT.

Sure did... Had a blast.

It was great seeing everyone.

Big thanks to Dana and Jill, they know how to camp in style. Mike's Moose stew was great.

Charles makes going off-roading look easy... Good job leading the pack.

Yeah the secret is the truck, although she does have several years of wheeling experience at this point

Blame me for anything bad!
