Long time lurker here, figured I’d contribute and share some pictures from my latest trip. This is the first trip after my much more experienced buddy helped me install a lift, fit bigger tires, completed my first welding fab project with the rear bumper, fit 3 degree shims under the leaf pack, and slapped on the heaviest front bumper on the planet. As a lifelong computer nerd, vehicles and wrenching were and still are pretty alien to me. But with a little effort and hands on experience, it does really start to click. It helps to have friends that are patient and eager to help, too! To anyone doing any rear lifting, get shims to correct the pinion angle to prevent vibration at the same time as the leaf pack/shock installation.

This is a ~450 mile track I bought offline from some NH adventure off-road site. For anyone not familiar with New England offroading, it’s a lot different than out west. Private property and closed roads along with the population density just doesn’t leave a whole lot of area to free camp. I didn’t want to bother with stealth camping so we stayed at campgrounds each night. Road time, its about 1/3 highway 1/3 logging roads and 1/3 wheeling. I will make some variations of this in the future to decrease pavement time but for what it is, it’s amazing. This is much more of an Overlanding trip but has a solid day of fun wheeling and features. Had two oh shit moments but we made it back in one piece. We did this trip October 5th-8th midweek and I would say timed it perfectly for fall foliage and traffic.
