Tang, make sure u crawl underneath it and check the frame for rot. Pay extra attention to the inside by spring perches and the over the axle hump.

Btw; if anyone is interested in checking out a great local off road club (which welcomes all 4x4 both capable of running trails and willing to as well (street queens will not find the club suitable), checkout Down & Dirty Offroad - Promoting Teamwork in 2011 We're family friendly. Our 2011 season kick-off party is Saturday March 12th (in Mt. Prospect) and our first run of the season will be at the Cliff's on March 26th. Check out the club site & forum and then come meet us in person. We're starting our 3rd year and this club is growing fast! And it doesn't matter if you're a off-road pro or a newbie, you'll find us welcoming and a fun group of people to wheel with. We also have "Newbie Runs" (even the seasoned veterans attend) at the Cliff's twice a year. Down and Dirty Off Road has members from IL(near and far from Chicago), WI, IN and MI. And we wheel in IL, IN, & MI. We hold a club "meet & greet" every month, and we (have planned in advance) wheeling trips somewhere every month too! No slackers here if you like the option to wheel somewhere (at least) once a month.

You can put me down as a "probable" my buddies aren't on this forum so just go through me. I'm all for it, but the only thing is I'm working out of town and we might start working 60-70 hours a week when the weather gets better. That's the only reason I can't fully commit bc I might be working 6-7 days a week! But if we stay working m-f like we are I'm all for it 100%! but That's really my only concern with committing to it right this min. :/

You live close enough to Chicago to be considered a southsider by Southern Illinoisians!
