Well, here my little bit of carnage from the New Year's Day run! I was the first to try the first obstacle on the Ironclads. I backed up to get a better run at it and I remember my son telling me at one point that I was against the tree. When I was backing up/sliding, I didn't even feel the tree. I must have hit fairly easy and/or the tailgate just makes a nice cushion! The spare was against the tree. The tire carrier rests on a rubber bumper mounted on a 1"x1" bar at the top of the tailgate. That got pushed in and I got a nice wrinkle where the 1"x1" bar ends! The tailgate still works, so nothing urgent to fix, but I will be looking for a red tailgate that fits a 2003 TJ! If you hear of one for sale, please drop me a note!
