Thanks alot!

It was hard to bring myself to wheel it, but after the first few dents, I just realized that it's part of the sport. I still try to keep it looking nice, actually detailed it in September. Paint still cleans up really well, just has more dents in it.

Snow wheeling pictures were at Rausch Creek in PA.

I've done everything on the XJ myself. The fenders were pretty easy, just need to take your time to make them look good. The fenders were trimmed more after those pics were taken. I have to update this thread.

I have heard lots about Rausch Creek. It seems like a great place to 4wheel.
