RC Questions

I am going to be running RC blues and blacks think I will be fine.
I have a jk 35s and 4inch lift. Bumper/winch.
What would you recommend getting before I go?

All the typical stuff for wheeling... straps, jack, hand tools, etc.. you'll be fine. I assume you have a group. RC does not let single vehicle go out. The maps they have for the different areas are.... IMHO.. crappy... so dont get too wound up knowing exactly where you are. The main trails are real easy to get back to. I think you can download the maps from their site. FYI.. with all the rain, I would imagine the mud/water holes will be deep. Deeper than you think... so be aware. They also have a couple big compressors for airing back up at the end of the day, so no need to worry about that.
Hope that helps a bit..

Blue/Blacks are no problem. If you still have the stock shafts in your LJ, just take it easy with the gas pedal. I don't really need the lockers at all.

My rear drive shaft fell out on Snakebite a couple weeks ago. Still made it out of there with just the front one. I saw one of the trail markers on Snakebite said "scary off-camber" but I have not seen ANY off camber on there, not to mention something scary.

Why wouldn't you just reconnect it versus removing it? Most of the off camber trails have been driven over so many times they don't even resemble what they once were. Last time I ran Camel Back, I only saw 17 degrees of tilt..

One of the tangs on the yoke broke, it spit out the bearing cups, along with all the bearings, and fell out. There was no re-attaching it.

The trip home was fun at 35 mph with a front locker.
