i'd be down for that. been itching to get out hiking anyway after the long winter. still some snow in the yard and on the trails up here. not much but it's still hanging around

This is off topic but if you really want to get out hiking go to www.meetup.com and check out the hudson Valley hikers group. I am an assistant organizer in the group. We often do local hikes like Mt. Beacon, Breakneck, Bear Mtn, Mohonk and a bunch of others.The hikes range from 3 to 6 hours

We are also seting up an adopt a highway program to help clean up a section of 9D
Another good way to help put is join up with the NY/ NJ Trail conference. We maintain hiking trails and offer assistance to hikers.

I think wheeling goes hand in hand with hiking and nature. We just have to get everyone on the same page

good to know man. Usually i just pick a nice weekend and head out to Sam's point or Bear Hill, Minnewaska, Peekamoose, or even just wander the quad trails around here.

I'd definitely agree with ya on wheeling and hiking going hand and hand. hell most wheelers are avid outdoors men and women in some respect besides jeeps. camping, hiking, fishing, hunting, quads snowmobiles and bikes all revolve around each other. it's when one group doesn't respect the other that we start to have issues like these and unfortunately wheeling is the one that is the easiest to get bad press with because it has the biggest footprint.

James, so you got that axle from Kevin, or is it another one. If Kevin's, then yes, I remember hearing you have a lot of parts to get. You have two choices for parking brake. Either try to get the Ford system working (many seem to do so fine), or get a t-case mounted disc brake kit from Tom Wood.

Yes it is from Kevin.
He said it needed a R&P I got that in the mail last week. It has the carrier and a locker. It also needs calipers and rotors. I am picking up a used but good set for 40 dollars today
I am enjoying this low budget build
I have read write up on the parking brake install. I see Ithere are a few options
I have been reading and saving almost every web page that details either SOA and the 8.8 install
Glad I'm off from work today I will be busy

I like the e brake set up. I will look into that

So I just wanted to throw this out there... I'm in the market for a budget boost for my TJ and was wondering if anyone in the hudson valley would be willing to meet up whenever and help with the install

I've never done something like this before and help would be much appreciated

I haven't bought the lift yet... but just wanted to see if I could get some assistance being a volunteer firefighter and full time student leaves funds low just to pay someone to install the lift

thanks guys!

That's what clubs are for. I knew nothing of Jeeps in '97 when I bought my YJ. I immediately joined HV4W (local to me) and learned most all of what I know of Jeep work from my club friends. At first they help you through things, later you help future new members. The Mohawk 4wd Club is near you I believe.
