I imagine you could do decent with a stocker, might be pretty muddy, but we have taken stock wranglers
and cherokees and even my old bronco II many places before. I think we could get you through.

and if you can't make it through, we have straps for that, We won't be doing any rocks of anything, mostly wooded trails
and probably some mud.

Take a right at this intersection of route 10 and latimer hill road, you cant miss it.
Firehouse is at the intersection and you'll start seeing jeeps parked outside.

I'm not sure whats up with the smiley in the link, but it appears to work anyways

Sounds good to me...I should have my new front bumper by then too... I have tow straps and the "D-Shackles" for recovery... I am willing to take a few hits if needed to get through a trail

We try not to cause anybody damage to their Jeeps, its just not necessary

So the rear axle is coming along nicely I should have it on the ground this weekend.
Then I need to measure for rear shocks and order them.

Should be driveable mid next week, then I need to go get it inspected,
because my inspection ran out mid swap

Don't know if I will be able to make the Jeep ride on 18April or not yet...we just planned a last min vacation to Daytona Beach, FL the week before. I am hoping that we will be home in time for me to go on the ride. Here's to hoping

Me too.
After I took apart the rear axle to get the seal out, I found a bad bearing as well.
New bearing kit is on order from 4WD Hardware

Its just me, but if I were to have it torn apart again to fix one seal, I would do'em all just to prevent the other from going bad on the trail or something...I would probally do the same for the bearings too, but again that is just me.
