yea yea...you guys and yer rocks....never seen so many people afraid of a little mud...lmfao....granted the cleanup sucks but boy if sure is fun during the ride...and im not talking bout the wet spot in farmer browns field...never quite understood that or the fact that groups of 4wheelers like to ply in the same hole for 30 minutes digging it out for the next guy...my idea of and ideal "orv park" would be muddy hilly rocky nasty and super sloppy...you know hit a few holes, make a hill climb navigate down the other side hit another hole come out of that with wet tires have to make it up a rock ledge then a muddy hill back into some more twisty yucky sloppy holes with rocks repeat all day..one where the trail changes from day to day...what you made yesterday you might not make today...I started out riding a set of trails known as "The Covington Pike Bottoms"...about 20 miles of trails along the wolf river in Memphis TN....sandy muddy hilly river bottoms with a few nice manmade ditches and washouts...the trails literally changed day to day in a big way...but in the late winter it floods fill in all the holes and come spring you start all over....I remember we went one year after the flood went down(waited about a month)...we hit the trails at about 10:30...we had 16 trucks in all, 5 had winches....the downhill trek entering was no biggie hill was pretty dry, and heres where it gets well ii would say interesting...but basicly the first section of trail you went around a couple of thickets down a 4ft drop travers about 200yrds then back up the same little 4ft drop...well see what had happened was...the trails had been under water for so so long that once all 16 of us had made into the depression were literally all stuck where we sat in a line...being as I was running tractor tire I was still able to at least move but unable to navigate up either one of the very small 4ft slants to get out...bad thing was as they sat all the truck were slowly sinking further into the muck...ok just realized how long this story could be so ill get on to the punch line...all in all it took 6 and a half hours to ride approx. 300ft turn around and extract 16 trucks...wives were pissed, kids were crying, everybody was cussing and laughing ...was a great day...

I dream of having local areas to go wheel with other Jeepers. There is one local spot that has a few mud holes and some hills, nothing even moderately difficult though. There are 2 different orv parks about 1.5-2 hours away that have some good trails. I want to put my Jeep through nasty stuff but there isn't a whole lot around this area. One day I will have to wheel with you!

For the engine mount through bolt I use 1/2" drive ratchet and 18mm socket on the bolt head then an adjustable wrench on the nut. The vice grips are for a small scissor jack I have which I used to move the engine up a hair to get the through bolt in. That would be funny if I changed my engine mounts with nothing but an adjustable wrench and a pair of vice grips.

I just bought retreads as well, the guard dog. They work amazing and for the price you can't beat them. Although I did satatic balance on mine and I'm running the rubicon wheels and they all took 1-2.5 ounces except for one which took 6 ounces but still feels good at 65m.p.h. Jeeps looks great BTW!
