part of me wishes I had just done a BB and some 31s, but I'm more than happy with the way mine is now with the 33s. I think I'm gonna stay here for awhile.

Yeah it pretty nice, being that I went that route I don't see a point in upgrading a few things for 33's then having to redo some of the same stuff for 35's... I might come back from my deployment and just jump to 35's.. I'll have enough saved only set aside just for that anyway.

WELL I JUST GOT ****ING SOAKED. Also learned that YJ brakes and rain don't combine when they locked up and I went soaring into a red light. Luckily I stopped 1/4 in and no one was going that way. I was amazed I kept the trailer straight.

Dude, you are struggling with the rain/storms here in the last few days. The f250 has been getting most of the reps this week, like clockwork, everyday here it rains at about 5 pm.

In other news I am going to Uwharrie on Saturday. First time I have had the jeep out, first time I have ever wheeled anything for that matter. Looking forward to it, anyone got any pointers for a rookie?

It's going to be raining like this through Sunday, you sir are going to experience wet clay. Look up at my pics I just posted after Jank asked for wheeling pics, that's URE after 5 hours of light rain. I can't imagine what it's going to be like Saturday

Have fun!

Make sure you wheel with a buddy, club, or if nothing else some random person that has been there before. The first two times I went I met up with a random guy from JF looking for someone to wheel with. Gotta wheel with someone else especially when it's wet out. Nothing sucks worse then getting stuck by yourself, and relying on the kindness of strangers (who are cursing you under the breath for being a noob). It seems almost every time I went out with the club we were bailing someone out, and that takes away from our wheeling time.

It helps if the person/people know the trails. The first few times I was there I had no idea where I was even though I had the maps, and I make maps for a living (geographer/GIS analyst).

There are bypasses for all the gnarly stuff. Take it easy and don't try anything too crazy. You'll be less stressed and enjoy it more of you don't break stuff right of the bat.

Most importantly have fun! Uwharrie is awesome!

Appreciate the advice! I am going with some guys from Triad Jeep Club, definitely not by myself. And I definitely plan on taking it easy, and learning the ropes.

Nice! I'm sure you will be having a blast! I'm a little jealous I can't go

I gotta get the Cherokee lifted first. I'm hoping that I can make it down there before they close for the season! The only other bit of advice is take lots of pictures!

Where in NC are you located? Get that thing lifted and I'll go down there with you, I am always looking for an excuse. The camera is charged up for sure, I want to make sure I have proof if I mess up and break something
