Let me know if you'd wanna come down in the next month or two, looks like we have similar setups mod wise. What are you looking for tire wise? I like my KM2's but I plan on switching to the MT/R's someday.


Maintain, wheel, upgrade, repeat.

I'd be down for a weekend trip of sorts around that time

I never make the same mistake twice - it's more like three or four times.

Count me in. Jeep convoys for wheeling trips are what my dreams are made of.

Would be nice to wheel with more TJ's for a change... silly XJ's all over my campus!

Well, I'd like to stay 10.5 wide, but I wouldn't be opposed to a wider tire. I've had my eye on the km2s since they come in 33x10.5, but reading about them here they seem hit or miss. It really comes down to whats going to be best for my needs, which include lots of street/ highway driving and trail riding mixed with small amounts of mild stuff. I love my BFG A/Ts as they work well for my needs, but one can't help but wonder if there's something better.

I'd be down for a weekend trip in a month or two. It will give me some time to get my Heep up to speed and any bugs worked out. How's the camping at RC?

I know I've been lacking in the picture department. So here are some pictures of the rust and of the cancer consuming my hood.

Look at the Falken Wildpeaks... bulletproof sidewalls, but very streetable.

I'll have to do some reading on them, did a quick search and the price is nice. They look like the Toyo A/Ts on my truck though.

Honestly I died alittle inside when I got home and saw the damage. Sad part is that's only 2 winters. She was pristine when she left CA.

Thanks! The funny part is when I bought it I didn't have a clue about axles, and was quite happy to later learn I had the more desirable axle.

Well, all parts and supplies for the front end work on the Jeep have arrived. Hopefully by the end of the weekend everything will be installed.


And if anyone was curious as to the size of the Currie steering; I present the Cat Scale.

If you and Kate need another hand, I can lend myself as well. I can also stand around and watch while looking pretty :-)
