2nd time out, this time with the other half of NCSU 4x4. Much better than round 1. 4 TJ's and an Isuzu at a nearby quarry.

Returned from the Uwharrie OHV Jamboree. Took some battle scars taking the hard line on the ledge on the hardest trail in the park. Still managed to get up it. This trip made me realize that I not only need new CA bushings in the rear end (neverending squeaks), but need to redo the way the 8.8 is set up to fix clearance and spring seating issues. Otherwise I was very pleased how well it performed with only LSD/Open. Got up everything I came to.

So I guess you guys want some TJ/JK updates huh?

The TJ is currently out of action due to overly destroyed RC bushings in my MC/RC hybrid arms. I have Energy bushings on the way from Bell Offroad but I'm a bit irritated they haven't shipped yet. I ordered 3 day shipping for a reason.




Also, if you couldn't tell from my rather colorful profile, I was voted President of the club, and Clay (JCJeep97) is the Vice. We are in the process of becoming a Registered Student Organization (hence the name change) and are on track to have our final registration and constitution submitted this Friday.

As far as the JK, dad hasn't skipped a beat. He installed a Lange electric hoist and Stinkyfab (IIRC) door hangers in the garage, added gutter guard behind the grill for that nice insert look, got a Red Spiderwebshade, and mounted the metric equivalent of 34" Nitto Terra Grapplers.



The Jamboree (where dad magically appeared in the Outpost on Saturday):
All of these pics are on Ledge 1/2 on Daniel. 2nd pic is where I took the damage.
