    You haven't Jeep'd till you put it on its side. My rear axle survived a slide down backwards throwing it up over an ice bank that was tall enough to hang it up.

    What did you have to do with it keep the front end from falling apart under the abuse of using a plow? Most people on here complain about the springs sagging from normal highway driving.

    Aside that seems to be an issue, while it has almost a whole new front suspension when I bought it, the front was sagging lightly. I solve my problem of sag with coil spring rubbers.
