nonsense....just plain nonsense...so your buddy took your DS to lengthen it? When is he gonna be done with that? Also do you know what he would charge me if I wanted him to cut and balance a DS for me? When I do my SYE in a month or two I was thinkin about just gettin a XJ front DS and gettin it shortened and balanced. Its alot cheaper than a $300 new DS. Im just wonderin, if he cant then oh well. There are just no decent driveshaft places around me...
Ok everyone, I talked to Will(spyder6) last night in regards to meeting place and times and all that stuff. Everyone is coming from all different places and there is NOT one specific town or city that is perfect for everyone. What I was thinking was we could all meet up in Owenton. Its a pretty nice sized city and is right before the drive gets squirly with back roads and town. I have been through there plenty of times on my way to HNH and the only place I know of that is right off the main road and where we could meet is the Subway. They have a decent sized Paring lot and its literlly right off 127. I will list directions and such below. Try and meet there around 10:00am if possible. That way we can get on the road and will be at HNH around 10:30am, and people with trailers and such can get everything unloaded and we can be wheelin by 11:00am. My plan is to hit some of the moderate trails for a few, show some of you guys with bigger wheels/axles/nuts the tougher ones and then maybe stop for some lunch and then continue wheeling for a few hours after that.
Again, Try meeting at the Subway around 10:00am. Just look for my blue rusty Jeep! The drive to Owenton is about an hour for everyone and then form there about another half hour so it should be all good. If anyone else is coming from NKY/Ohio I will be meeting off the Richwood exit with another Jeeper so you are welcome to meet and ride down with us. This sounds like its going to be an awesome day and Im excited to meet some new poeple! If you have any questions or anything post in here or PM me.
The parks address is:
2740 Harpers Ferry Road, Lockport KY
Look for the Orange trees if your not meeting us in Owenton. The cost to ride is $10 a driver and $5 a passenger and that gets you in/out of the park all day. You will need to sign a waiver once you get there, but after that you will be ready to wheel. Thanks!!
I think I'm in...coming from georgetown, ky....trying to get another buddy with his TJ to come too! First time to hillz n hollarz...looking forward to meeting some new people.

I would love to come, but all i have is a 2" lift and 31" tires, so if yall think i would do ok and not break anything seeing that it is my dd and gets me to school and back...
You will be fine, come on down. I am running on 31" tires with a 3" lift and 2" BL (PO installed it) other than that I am stock suspension and drivelinewise. I have been the HNH 3 times and have done everythine except for one hill which is nearly impossible (can only think of 1 person I saw get up) and one other hill but there was a bypass. My TJ is a daily driver as well so I am not crazy or anything, have never got any body damage at HNH yet (knock on wood) so come on down and have some fun, you will be fine.
Brad I think I am just going to meet you all at HNH. I am pretty sure I know how to get there and if not hopefully my GPS will. I will try to get there at 10:30 or a bit earlier if possible. What channel are we going to be running on the CBs? Are we going to be running CBs? If anyone else is coming from louisville and wants to meet up just let me know.
Brad woul you mind PMing me your cell phone number so I can get hold of somebody if I end up late or something? Thanks.
hey brad we still on for tomorrow? i got half my steering stuff in but i called fed-ex, and hopefully the rest will be in friday, if not, it will be here saturday morning, and i can throw it on and meet you guys down there
