Looks like you guys had fun today. I tried making it down today but a couple things came out last minute. I changed my diff fluid finally though from the Jake Run and there was no water in the diffs.

of course, i have a few more and 2 vidoes you were the only one to get stuck so we had to take a bunch of pictures. you made the effort and took the chance, braver then i was. no problem for taking the pictures, i tried taking as many but hard from being at the end of the line.

definately cant wait for the next run, hopefully i can get my buddy and his lifted ZJ out.

My axle seals are shot also.
Drained and filled the front before the run and after (to get ready for tommorrow), ordered another set of seals.

And a video if it works...

i checked your xj when i had it up on the lift at work, they looked pretty good, and remember i also changed your fluids too.....if you sat in water, its better to change the fluid, running through it you should be ok.

The may run will be posted soon.

If there is interest for May 8th, I'd be down for a run that day.
I know there is a jeep show in North Jersey that day for the diabetes event. Unfortunately, my XJ isn't much to show and it's a long drive so I will not be attendance up there.
