Most places won't repair a sidewall. You might could find a smaller independent one that would do it if possible so you could have a spare. Are you in Asheville?

You cannot get a sidewall patched on the inside can you ?
Oh pics or it didn't happen.

Thats one thing that i liked about going with discount tire....basically the tire is covered for its life (40k, 50k, etc) that if anything happens to it minus someone stabbing it, they replace it for free! If I air down and rip it open on a rock...i get a free one!

And yes, I get excited when i think of wheelin, could be the noob in me, but I had a blast last time!

Treat each of the day's problems as your dog would...
If you can't eat it or screw it, piss on it and walk away!

If in doubt...HIT THE GAS!! It may not always be the right decision, but it will end the suspense!

The build so far....http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f22/p...dator-1342553/

FYI: Almost nobody will repair a sidewall. It's just too dangerous.

Look, say what you want but i get more nervous than anything. I get excited, oh hell yea. But I guess it's just more adrenaline than anything. Up until the point that I am actually wheeling, all thats going through my mind is "Did I make sure that was tight", "Did I make sure that was full", and "Is _____ going to break!?" Then it all goes away once we get into the ride.

I live in Spruce Pine about an hour from Asheville. Don't have any pics, was by myself, and as you know the rain kinda got rid of the evidence.

I forgot you were out that way. The pics thing was a funny. How did you cut the sidewall?

I busted a bead a couple of trips ago and discount dismounted it, cleaned the mud out and rebalanced it for no charge. I have never purchased anything from them.

Mine has been in the garage since last trip, never even washed it. Next on my "jeep to do list" is to fill up the gas tank. I hope to have it ready before saturdays big run.

Was thinking about lifting the rear a couple more inches, that way i'll always be pointing downhill, should be better for fuel mileage?

Don't breed em' if you can't feed em'.

I know I hope to have mine ready by the weekend I put half a tank in and washed it.

Okay is there anyone going that is close to Marshall/ Hotsprings? If so I think it would be good to check the "gate" of forestry service road 422A. One time we tried a night run and the hate was locked and rest is history. I'll go check it on Thursday if no one is closer and somebody covers my hotdogs.

FS website says its open from 3/15 thru 1/18.
Check out this bit of info i read on their website:

Motor vehicle use, especially off-highway vehicle use,
involves inherent risks that may cause property damage,
serious injury, and possibly death to participants. Drive
cautiously and anticipate rough surfaces and features,
such as snow, mud, vegetation, and water crossings
common to remote driving conditions. By your participation,
you voluntarily assume full responsibility for these
damages, risks, and dangers. Take care at all times to
protect yourself and those under your responsibility.
Much of the Unaka Ranger District is remote. Medical
assistance may not be readily available. Cellular telephones
do not work in many areas of the Unaka Ranger District.
Take adequate food, water, first aid supplies, and other
equipment appropriate for the conditions and expected
weather. Many designated roads and trails may be passable
only by high-clearance vehicles or four-wheel drive vehicles.
Maintenance of designated roads and trails will depend on
available resources, and many may receive little maintenance.

Don't breed em' if you can't feed em'.
