Gonna let all that stuff dry out over the weekend. Would anyone suggest compressed air over water to get sand out of tough to reach areas. Also suggestions on any lube points I could hit up on the axles and etc.

Looking for suggestions on rock sliders(terras vs mantec) and winch bumpers and winches. Is there a way to keep my existing grill/bars?

Rockware bumper and either Mantec or TF will need to be modified if you want to do any serious wheeling with them. But I've heard if you go with TF that have tree slider bars they are beefier.

The rear connection point on today's sliders is pretty weak...any impact tends to twist them. Tying it into the frame is what most do.

Good word there. I would prefer that way(to the frame). Has anyone done a demonstration on what is needed to do it or is it pretty straight forward?

This will give you a good idea...I was really liking these, but I ended up with a 90 that had the SG sliders which are pretty stout:

That is absolutely correct. Same goes for the factory rear tail lamp guards...they do more harm than good. Instead of just cracking a lens you end up twisting body panels.

Get a stout bumper and sliders if you want to have fun with it. I tried to avoid it on the 110 and went through a couple factory bumpers but luckily no body damage. Now the 90 is the dedicated trail rig with plenty of armor.

I like the rockware bumper both for looks and strength over the ARB.

Never liked those shipman bumpers, no thought into the design IMO. Rockware seem to get high marks and look really good. Mantec sliders have served me well, im not very hardcore though.

Bryan you likely need to change out the axles oil and swivel grease too. Even if you have breathers with the axles submerged you likely have water contamination which can shorten life of your bearings.

You may have already knew this or may have been covered....sorry if repetitive.

I learned that lesson twice. Just stay away from creeks and sand.

After I returned to the main road I had to go back and pull out the Jeep from a place I told him not to go, then slid down off the sand bar I was on trying to turn back around, there was a tree submerged under in front of the tires so my winch was worthless as was the Jeep, then the computer got submerged and I had to drive home with the transmission in 3rd or something, and it was February, and my tow strap broke...

This is me in the upper left corner of the Whoops section in Peterson's 4WD in 1999. Freak wheeling accident - out mudding, got sideways, and caught the edge of a mud pit. Wasn't wearing a seatbelt either.
