So I went to Jeep Beach today, IMO what waste of money... $60 to get in and I used $65 in gas round trip....just to wait in line to get on the "modified obstacle course" and once I made it to the course it was stop for 5 min move 2 feet, stop for 5 min move 2 feet.

Good news is she drives great going 70 mph again just mpg blows.

To the white XJ that gave me the peace sign, sorry I didn't see that until you had already passed by.

The guy in front of me had the licence plate "1 TUF JK"



Kevin had fun showing up some JKs on 35s doing this:

If I could have done the course several more times it would have been worth it.

I was willing to pay that much to get in if I could have saved some money from the vendors there but they were charging retail and would not budge on prices at all even with me having cash in hand.

I would think its also plenty strong for what you're running. The 8.8 is just so "meh"

So I just ordered a drive shaft from Tatton, should be here by next week. Finally no more vibes from a worn out drive shaft.
