Little far for me to go.

Random question: Anyone have a Dana 30 diff carrier for 3:73 and up that they wouldn't mind parting with? Compensation would be made of course.

On Tuesday Brunhilde goes to Wild West Fab to get the front diff regeared! Only took 3 months to completely finish my axle swap but I think it will be worth it.

I'm planning on going to Elbe on the 7th. Let me know if that works for you. I can adjust.

DeadManWalking, are you still good for that or are you going to that winching event?

The winching even is on the 8th, we may go down on the 7th to get a room so I doubt I could do both. Have fun.

DeadManWalking-
Yeah I got them put in on Tuesday. Wild West did a great job. I'm still going up to Elbe on the 7th if anyone is interested.

cycleguy04-
I wish I could go, but I have to work tomorrow and my wife has homework to do this weekend, so I have the kids today.

Great, how's it feel to have two working diffs? What gearing did you change to and what sized tires are you running? Have fun wheeling, I'm still relearning to walk, or at least do so without too much discomfort. Time.

It's awesome to be able to use 4x4 again. I went with 4.56 and I'm running 32x11.50 KM2s. Its a bit aggressive for the tire size I'm running, but I plan on going up to 35s when I get back from Afghanistan. What happened to you?

What happened to me? You mean my knee? Age. It's hell getting old. When do you deploy or is it redeploy? And if I have not said so all ready, thank you for your service.

I've never been, but I want to! We can all pop that cherry together. I say set a date way ahead, stick with it, and try to get a huge turnout. It would be a blast!

BigWhis and I just went to Elbe last weekend. His stock 4 door JK kicked A$$! Kept up with my modified TJ in some pretty rough sh**!
