For those of you that don't know, I have accepted a position in Grand Rapids, MI. I am headed that way tomorrow morning, Jeep in tow. Living in Utah has been a blast and I have meet a lot of great people here. I hope to be an annual Moab visitor for some sort of Jeep vacation in the future.

There is some level of leniency for out-of-state vehicles, at least in Moab.

Drive safe. Let us know if you need any roadside assistance up this way.

Considering Silver Lake is 20 minutes from where my Jeep is stored, you are probably right.

Opened the rear differential cover and found 3 pieces of center pin. Everything else appears to be OK. Replaced the pin with the factory one and am good to go. Now to get it registered in Michigan...

I broke the hardened center pin that comes with the new Spartan locker in my d44a. I threw the stock pin back in that I used with the original Spartan, before they started including them with the locker purchase.

Replaced my tie rod ends to cure my death wobble and headed to Silver Lake with my wife. It was nice to get out in the Jeep again.

We should be taking possession of our house in Wayland the end of September, and I can move the Jeep back with the rest of the family.
