Hit the dirt around Tar Hollow with the club this past weekend. Went with the Stock group and had a great day! We only hit three trails, Pleasant Ridge, Waterfalls, Allison because we had 39 Jeeps in the train and an extended lunch to attempt some repairs on a couple guys who had some mechanical issues. These were the interesting bits i caught on camera this time (half my cameras weren't recording half the time

Fearless turned some heads on Allison when she was one of only 4? to not bypass that rut. So sad my interior camera was not on for that bit to catch the radio chatter!

Only modifications i've done are the Rocky Road Super Sliders, which have saved me LOTS of monies so far!

Sorry for the ad, apparently that bit with the 20 year old song drew some copyright flags.

      Best real off-road video of the Cherokee TH I have seen. That rut was pretty severe and impressed how well you made it through.

      Props on the FJ, those are some nice rigs too! I mighta ended up in one myself if they had continued production. But i wanted the new tech too much...coming from a guy who until a month ago still had an old dumb phone!

      +Fearless Trailhawk A Cherokee TH was tops on my list for a DD with decent off-road capability as my lifted 2003 Grand Cherokee Overland was about perfec t for me. Unfortunately budget issues had me go with a used FJ Cruiser which has been great too but props to you for putting it through some nasty stuff.

      Thank you sir! I frequently look at an upcoming feature and say to myself..."theres no way i'm getting through this without a tug"...and she just walks right through 99% of the time. There are quite a few snippits of footage out and around, but most of the crazy ones i've seen are all private vids on facebook, or buried in the middle of a 20 minute wrangler vid.

      Enjoy your videos. I just bought a 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk with the intentions of doing some off-roading as well. I am wondering where I can find the rocker panel protectors u have on your Jeep.

      My only fear with the 'kicker' is that when sliding on a rock it will get hung up. I've heard a couple ppl that have them and wheel that have had no issues though. I guess i just like to imagine worst case.

      My side rails have been ordered....I went with the “kicker rock slider” kit...hope it fits right...let me know if I made a mistake..just wanted that extra bit to kick the ass end out..

      Looked at some images of the bumper company you sent me the link to.....I like them. I want a tubular bumper that goes under the front end...with a winch...and maybe an led light bar on it. Let me know when the mod for the 2019 comes out...

      I've looked at a lot of bumpers, and i'm going with the Expedition One bumper. Its a bit pricey but it has the look and function i want. https://expeditiononestore.com/products/jeep-kl-trailhawk-front-bumper But i have to wait for them to re-design it for the '19s new front end.

      Again..thanks for replying. I’m kind of new to this. So u have the “super sliders”...correct?

      And have u thought of..or have u searched a front push bumper with a winch in it. I’v seen some nice looking ones that would protect the front plastic bumper when doing steep approaches...but I don’t even know where to start looking and what brands I can trust.

      Did it myself, twice. Once on my '17 and then again on my '19. The pita part is the drilling 16 holes through the pinch seam. So either have some knowledge of sharpening drill bits, or a really good bit and lots of oil and patience, or lots of cheapy bits. I obviously thought it was worth the effort as i installed them a second time on the '19.

      Oh man, I don't think I would ever drive my TH like that. That was quite entertaining, sir.

      ...I've done worse...just didn't have any good camera angles to show. Currently Jeepless as she's in the body shop recovering from an assault by a JK from behind. Its been 5 weeks and it will be atleast two more... :( But once i get her back more shenanigans will ensue! (i've actually missed some good rides lately)

      What made you go with the Rocky Road Super Sliders over the Mopar Rock Rails?

      Fearless Trailhawk In reply to AWDfreak

      I wanted the "step"part of it, i didn't like sliding on/off of the seat every time i get in/out. And i like the look of them and the added protection from it sticking out a few more inches, helps prevent door dents and dings better.

      Also from what i can tell, the Mopar ones mimic the geometry of the stock plastic rocker panels, which sit almost a couple inches below the pinch seem. Lowering your breakover. The Rock Road sliders sit almost even with the pinch seem (1/4" below) giving you more clearance. However the Mopar sliders are a much easier install, and can even be added straight from the factory.

      They have some #sickflex yeah? 3-wheel is pretty common. I'm used to it but most of those around me on the trails are not...and tend to freak out, its pretty entertaining!

      Wow ! Glad I talked my wife into one of these.. Though it may be awhile before my 3 boys and I get to do this with it.
      Looks like it beat that wrangler through some of those obstacles.. ?

      Really impressive what the KL can do. I look forward to seeing your rig as it progresses! The lift should be interesting. going to subscribe, hope to see some mire video's!

      The guy at the end? That is a troublesome feature that has been getting worse through this last year. I've gotten stuck once on that one because the spotter was an idiot and told me to turn into the ledge. I've since learned to ignore the ones telling me to take a line i know won't work for my KL. That guy behind me got stuck because it was his first time over that feature and he was too timid, you need a bit of momentum to clear that first ledge/drop.

      I frequently show up the wranglers on the 'stock' rides (i'm still stock) as most of them aren't confident in their rigs abilities (a good portion of them are modified). Though this winter i'll be getting a lift and bigger tires, so i'll start doing the "Modified" rides with my club.
