After that ride the money I was saving started burning a hole in my pocket so I scrapped the bike idea and bought an aussie locker for the 30, RCV shafts, warn m8000, currie antirock, and alloy usa outer tube seals. This was all in February 2011

Next was a NOVA ride to Crozet in Feb 2011 and that was an awesome time. Crozet has everything to offer and youll have a good time there no matter what. They have all of the rocks you could want to wheel on. I loved the place..took some damage and got close to rolling it but its all fun. I was also pleased with how the antirock and the new aussie worked. Definite improvement with the front locked and more stable with the antirock.
Here’s the dented windshield frame and the cracked hardtop. I need to stop wheeling with the hardtop…
And so that brings us up to present time. Things on my to do list are to order a TT and GTS
Will be going with the UCF ultra high clearance aluminum TT and the Savvy GTS.
After those 2 things I want to lock the 8.8 and maybe throw the super 88 kit in it. I’ll either do a Detroit or ARB. The gears that are in there now have a 5 year warranty from ECGS though and they were just set up less than 10k miles ago so itll kind of suck to have to void that and have to pay labor to have the new locker installed but itll really help the offroad performance.
Then really all I can see right now is a full cage (probably have to get aftermarket seats too then) and rear corners.
The thing about getting the cage is I still need to be street legal for now and I need atleast a hardtop to fit since its my dd for now. I don’t really see it becoming a trail only rig until I get out of college and can buy a diesel truck/trailer to tow it. But ive been looking at different cage designs a lot and researching so that may happen sometime this summer. May have Chris at Rock Works Fab from RCPFA build it for me. And it will definitely be tied into the frame at the 6 spots.
Ill either be going to Penn State next year or VT so not too far from RC and Crozet, etc
I ordered the savvy GTS and UCF 1" deep 1/4" alum TT last week and they will both be coming this week. I'll put them on 2 weeks from now because I'm going to wheel at Rausch next weekend. Also got a tree saver and snatch block in the mail the other day.
Very nice build. Keep it going. Looks like a great place to wheel.
Thanks man. If you mean Crozet- it really is a great wheeling park. The trails are all obstacles and technical areas instead of having easy stuff in between the obstacles like you see at other parks. I really like that idea because you get more good wheeling in where as at places like Rausch Creek you have to take greens to get to the other blacks.
