I like to play "follow the leader" at that park. Well not everyone could follow me, but every one of them tried. I am not a mud person at all, but I was dared. Since they followed me on the trails and hill climbs, I kind of had to follow them in the mud It was only fair

I've done it myself, the moment is the moment, and I will never deny myself any fun that I WANT to have because of clean up.... sometimes though. It's just NOT fun enough to warrant the clean up, so the "I'm good" phrase gets used.

Just like the other day at the local 4WP, they were having a March Madness get together sale and they had a demolished car you could try to climb over if you so choosed in the parking lot, I could only imagine how pissed I'd be at myself for messing up my rig climbing a freaking corsica in the 4WP parking lot in front of 20 complete strangers... or worse rolling it or cutting a tire, blowing a diff.... some people tried to get me to do it.... I was very "good" not doing it.

Thank you. It's really dumb if you ask me!

Haha, you just gotta control yourself and let your actual fabrication skills catch up with your tools destructive capabilities.

As luck would have it..... amazingly a check for $750 showed up today from a supplemental insurance policy (he race's BMX, and Karts, rides Dirt bikes) we have on my son from when he broke his arm last year, out of the blue, that we had totally written off thinking we didn't have the correct documentation or that it did not qualify. My wife knowing that I'm chomping at the bit to get some front axles and that I don't want to charge anything during this house fiasco and that we need a good cash supply right now said here ya go! So add that to my already saved $200 and I'm all set. Now I just really have to make the decision. Uhg.... HELP!!!!! Gspup.... now I REALLY do need that quote buddy. If I don't get RCV's, Yukon is very appealing to me.... they are local so any warranty issues could be solved immediately. Hmmm... long night of research ahead. And I guess my rig won't be put back together this week... might as well wait till I get everything now. Feeling very grateful right now. We pay a lot into insuring his safety and that we'll be able to account for any accidents, but this little kick back came at a good time. I know there's a zillion RCV vs. Chromo threads.... but if anyone wants to throw in their opinion right here I'd appreciate it.

I like RCVs a lot since you wont ever have to worry about ujoints but depending on the price Id rather save some coin and get some Chromo's and have some spares and spend the remaining cash elsewhere.

I just went through this myself . I liked the RCVs but at double the cost of the Superior Discoverys and Yukons they were tough to digest . I really wanted Superior Evo's but they are out of stock with no future ship date . So this put me back to the Yukons and Discoverys . They are both made in India , and of the same material . They both also have a 10 year warranty . The decision for me was based on this , the Yukon warranty is a one time deal over ten years where the discos arent limited over the ten year warranty . I doubt I would need to swap either of them , but the more limited warranty did affect my decision .

Thanks Beasley! Saved me some time there. Uhg, since the cash kind of just fell into my lap..... I'm having a hard time not getting the orange boots. If only I can think of ANOTHER mod to soak up that money, haha. Also I could literally walk into Yukon tomorrow and pick them up..... that's gonna be tough not to do.

Thanks man, I appreciate your first hand experience and also appreciate people who don't just spout out negative without knowing much about the particular brand.
