Just starting out in the whole Jeep thing. Picked this 05 Rubicon up last weekend. Just looking for lift / tire options now.

Live in Wickersham and work in Sedro Woolley.

Yep! I was in your area Saturday night giving the Jeep a little test drive up Racehorce. Made it to the cement bridge where the snow is still deep.

Lived in the area all my life. MBHS class of 97.

I'm up there almost every weekend doing something or another. I've only lived here 3 years. But I think I'm going to be a lifer.

Hey guys, just wanted to let you all know that our club RRR4x4.com has revamped our web site and gone through some membership changes. Pop in and say hi on the site. We are local here in Bellingham/Whatcom county. We wheel Walker all the time and a few "other" places. Anyway just thought I'd throw that out there.

Oh and Upper Mainline at Walker is going to be closed if it is not already. The details are on our site and DNR's


Our site---> RRR4x4

Not going to be a permanent thing, Just need to address and repair some issues before it can open again.

That was quite a challenge, wasn't it? When I went on Sunday I had to get winched up the ledge. I'm still trying to get the mud off the undercarriage.

See post #192. I drive the green TJ. I bent my tranny pan a little bit. My stock transfer case skid got bent really badly. So much so that when my suspension droops the front driveshaft makes contact with the skid.

I just got the rear regeared to 4.88 with a Detroit Truetrac. Now I have to get my HP D30 built. In the meantime, I don't have 4wd. I guess the timing isn't too bad since the Upper Mainline's closed anyway.

I had the rear gears changed the day after the trip. Who said I have a Rubi? Mine is a 2001 Sport.
