    They probably did that on purpose!! No kidding!! My club doesn't have a limit , but when i signed up the club pres who took the app. said " fullsize... hmmmm???" I changed his tune on the next trail ride!!!! most heep type clubs limit their wheelbase to include early bronco's and misc scouts etc . and keep out fullsize pu's and blazers , burbs etc. they have the mentallity that all we will do is get hung up/ stuck on obstacles , and constantly need to get recovered. We know thats not true with our rigs , and I've pretty much proved it to my bud's!!! as I do most of the SERIOUS recovery work ! CC /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif

    Get the ORD Zero rates. Put them on the back to shorten your wheelbase down to 105" and smile at the Jeepers. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Hehe, that's kinda funny since some of the most capable Jeeps around have been stretched out to 110 or so because the shorter wheel bases cause more problems than they solve. Just go poke around on PBB for a while, all the jeeps (and similar) are pushing the axles out both ends. /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif
