Beautiful rig, JD! You're always welcome in Charlottesville, which is on the way to the 5 best trails in Va! --Oak Ridge, Potts, Shoe Creek, Big Levels & Dictum's Ridge.
...I should say that you're ALL welcome!

Thanks for the invites guys, I am definitely down to go or even do mod days. I have a few projects that I have to get done on this thing just to get it to pass the state inspection, nothing major though. I have to replace one of the front lights, fix the windshield wiper switch so I get those working and it should hopefully pass. I am getting ready to order a new skyjacker 2.5" lift and wheels/tires for it this week since the old shocks/leafs are pretty much shot. The current wheels are way to close to the springs and the tires have almost no tread. Only problem with a 37 year old vehicle is that it has probably been 6 or 7 peoples project and who knows what they have done with it.
I was chasing a ground in there this weekend so I pretty much ripped out the stereo the guy had installed. I found wires taped together with scotch tape, no telling what else I will find in there.

Have you all made reservations at Wheeling for Hope, at Oak Ridge the last weekend in April? 200 Jeeps split into groups of abt. 10; best trails in Virginia, for $100 per vehicle. HIGHLY suggested if you have at least a small lift or a Rubicon, but most of the really technical spots have a bypass!
...and Tidewater Fourwheelers is always a big part of it!

No plans on going to Wheeling for Hope but that may change. Still finishing up some odds and ends. Mainly bump stopping to keep the 31s out of my fenders.

Nice rides! Just put new wheels and tires on yesterday. Just got new leafs and shocks delivered yesterday, hopefully going to get them on next weekend. No plans for wheeling for at least two months, have to get this thing to be a daily driver first.
