Met up with a couple of guys from JF and a friend and went wheeling Sunday. First time I've really gotten to take it anywhere besides just trails in the woods and mud holes. Was really impressed with how Quadra-drive performed!
Friend got high centered on a hill and I had to pull him off. Later I got my rear diff buried in some dirt and he had to give me a tug to get me moving, I really need some bigger tires.
Got the wheels last night with one brand new KM and decent tread on the other four tires, for a steal! Going to throw them on the dub today and list what I have now on cl. Then gonna wait a paycheck or two and order a new set of 4 kms.
Also, the rola roof basket is $130 on amazon right now. It was more like 160 or 170 last time I checked so I might go ahead and order one.

Ordered new brake pads, rear wheel bearings, and transmission filters today. Ordering 3/4" spacers this weekend. As soon as it warms up I'm replacing my brake pads, fixing my leaking rear axle seal, installing the spacers, and getting the flowmaster installed.
Went wheeling today. Dented my radiator support pretty good and twisted one of my tow hooks getting pulled out of a mud pit. So looks like I'll be learning to weld and building a bumper this summer for radiator protection and front recovery points.
Decided that the FM 50 I put on a few weeks ago isn't loud enough for my taste so I just ordered a Super 44 from Amazon. Also, I just bought a Rola roof basket to hold the spare when wheeling. Can't wait to get it and put it on!
