I rebuild lasers for a living, so I do ok with them! We also have a 90K psi waterjet, a manual mill and lathe, a couple welders (one is a new lincoln power mig), and oh yeah, we have a separate garage at work with a 7,500 pound 2 post lift. I am pretty familiar with fabrication. Just trying to learn more about the Jeep

Ask away and join us on our next trips, whenever that'll be. I'm sure I'll post a notice on here.

Would love to, I am a true rookie so I wouldn't want to hold you guys back, but I'm definitely up for it.

FYI, I am rolling 30 front, 35 rear w/ 3.07's, both are open. I am trying to figure out what I should do first, I am thinking sye and rear shaft so I can get rid of this god awful transfer case skid drop I have. I just did brakes at all 4 corners today and it wasn't too bad, no one had ever touched the brakes on my rig and they were trashed to say the least

i would love to get a hold of a hp D30 and an 8.8 and go that route, I want to be able to run 33's. I see no reason to drop money into axles and regear with what I have. I need to get this crap rc 2.5" lift out as well. So much to do...need more time!

I've been shopping sye's this morning, looking at the jb conversions HD standard length. Any thoughts

Getting ready to head over to the shop in a few and finish breaking in the new black magic brake pads. I also need to adjust the parking brake in the rear, its too loose after yesterday's rebuild

If you young guys dont mind an older (i'm 31) guy that has no idea what the hell he is doing, I am definitely up for it. I haven't had this rig offroad yet and have been looking for any excuse to break some stuff

We don't mind at all! Uwharrie is a great place to learn. I was scared like hell at first, but by the end of the trip I was pretty comfortable. Then my next trip to Richland Rd I had loads of confidence

Following Seth and following me require different levels of confidence.

The 30/35 isn't that bad if you have the right build plan for it. Im going the route of learning how to regear while im in afghan so when I get back I can swap in 4.53's and go up to 33" tires. I'll figure out what to do as far as strengthened shafts, I might just pull stock 27 splines for spares from a JY and wheel easy on the skinny pedal.

Also touching on RC, I have their 2.5" springs and shocks and I wheeled flawlessly at URE when I went there. Doing everything except Daniel in all directions. Never felt like my RC or stock components were putting me in jeopardy or flat lining the jeep. But its all about how you wheel.

Once I went truly wheeling for the first time, I completely threw out all my "upgrade lists" and "perfect rig build plans" because once you put rubber to rocks/dirt/gravel/etc it really changes the difference between needed and wanted.

I dont think I'll be scared, in fact going with a group that knows what to do will help me tremendously
