Just spoke to Northern drivetrain and ordered my flange for my rear driveshaft. I had to replace the rusted one that came with the axle. It should be inbefore the weekend so I can continue with the axle.

When I went to White Sands I saw a lot of potential trails but it seemed that they were all on .gov land ? Fun looking trails , and a nice looking TJ .

Thanks GBeasley
Ya most of the trails are Private land but we have permission from the land owners. White sands is all pretty much gov owned whether it be the national park or the military. Lots of the trails are north of Alamogordo near Tularosa

I need hurry up and get my axle in and start cycling the suspension to set my bumbstops but I need to taper the holes bigger on the UCA mount and track bar mount.
