I'm not worried about the shaft. Just the joints.12 year old u-joints are scary. I'm going out to change trans fluid and t-case fluid. I'm going to attempt it. What can I do about the lack of a rear tow hook?

We all have straps and winches and tools we can get you out of anything. Plus it's been real dry and mud is usually the stuck point. Look for me in the zebra or Tom in the stretched silver jk. We are leaving champaign about 630 if you wanna catch us on 74 will will have one open trailer and one closed trailer. Could tow you back to cu if big problem, I could road mine back if someone else needed trailer spot. No worries

Ok you talked me into it. I won't be able to leave until about 8. I have to work until 7-7:30. I know the 4xfools will be on channel 14. What will you be on? I hope there are some water crossings on the easier trails. I love crossing creeks!

WOW! You're really pale! You don't look so good. Lay down and rest. You need to take a day off to recover. LOL

Wow! I can't wait to see it! It must be nice to have that kind of money to throw at your toys. I'm limited to $800 one check and $400 the next.

I had a blast! I didn't break anything! I went through some pretty crazy stuff for a stock TJ. 2 more inches of ground clearance and I would have been golden. I can't complain. It was a great day!

Damn Tom's JK is a beast! He was towing a Cherokee out of the rocks as if it wasn't even back there! Wicked trail rig!
