Appropro toast of good whiskey at the end completes the journey, body damage aside!
    To be honest, I think we would have preferred running this trail in Moby, our JK running 40's and sitting on EVO DTD's but we knew what we were getting ourselves into. A trip like this is intended for manufacturers and vendors to push their Jeeps to the limit and test out their handy work. Granted, we went more as journalists but driving our own JL helped us to really experience what everyone else was going through.

    Would have been great to see moby flexing out. Not one JL on a DTD type set up. Think just coilovers, right? And just a couple of the rigs were running Melís suspensions.

    Iím not looking for the most economical lift, but it is hard not to think about the Rancho set up. But the king bling as well as their the coilovers sure looked good Harrisís and Melís rigís.

    Will you be doing any more install/review vids on the new driveshafts and other bits? Ya know, because you have all the free time. Ha ha.

    So good! I was pumped watching this video. Epic vistas and views, hardcore crawling, and some candid and comic relief moments. You guys have your own style putting these out and theyíre definitely entertaining. Cheers! On a side note, itís awesome to see what is capable with a well built rig running parts the average Joe can afford. Yíall have steered me towards the Rancho kit and it does not disappoint.

    At about 1:00 in there's a shot of the PSC jeep held up with one of the new ARB Jacks. Eddie, can you say anything about how it worked out? Sure, it's expensive but if it really works well it might be worth it...

    Sorry for not seeing this sooner. Yes, definitely got more install videos coming your way. Just need to get the JLX done first

    I won't lie, all the epic wheeling happened in part 2 but we hope you'll still tune in for part 3.

    Works like a glorified Hi-Lift. If you're running coilovers and need to unload them on the trail, I suppose it's about as useful as a Hi-Lift.

    If there's just one word I could use to describe the 2nd day of the 2018 Nitto JL-Experience presented by KMC - I'd have to say EPIC!! After leaving our hotel in Laughlin, Nevada, we crossed over into Arizona, made our way to Bullhead City and then headed up into the foothills of the Black Mountains. After spending some time bombing our way through some crazy fun desert washes, we found ourselves on an old mining trail filled with big rocks and nasty obstacles and ones that would put all our JL Wranglers to the test. We also made a lunch stop in the historic town of Oatman before hitting the trail again to soak in a stunning desert sunset and then ended our day at an old mountain retreat, up in the Hualapai Mountains. Fortunately, the the rock crawling did allow us to get in a bit more filming from the outside but the constant need to be on the move and stay out of the way of the film crew, limited us as to what we could get. In other words, you'll get to see a lot of our JL and shots of anyone who might have been immediately around us. Needless to say, we apologize for not being able to get more footage of everyone else and we hope that you're still able to enjoy Episode 2 of REUNION, for what it is.



    It should be noted that 3 of the 10 JL Wranglers in our group were running 40" Trail Grapplers and everyone except for us was either running King or Fox coilovers or shocks. In other words, we did all that you seen in this video with just a basic and pocket friendly, Rancho 3.5" lift.
