I have a slight vibration from the lift, i will drop the transfer case 1" to correct that. Its much stiffer a ride now lol. But it looks cool and thats what really counts. LOL.

Looking for some insider information! I finally got my Jeep 2 weeks ago (1995, I6, auto) and I'm looking to find as many trails as possible around the Triangle. From what I've gathered Page Road is the best spot. Are there any more worth checking out?

Exactly! Mine already rides pretty bad so that won't change for me - mine might actually ride a little
better!

Wife and I drove up to Page Rd from Fuquay this morning to check it out. I started to pull around the dirt pile at the entrance there and just wasn't comfortable enough with my stock 2012 with no lift and SRA tires to chance going into those ruts which still had mud in them. We ended up backing out of the entrance and heading back home. I'm bummed.

I'll try and watch for next time you all go as a group because I think I need some instruction on recognizing what I can go through and what I can't in stock form.

Glad to see you taking out the new ride but you should always wheel with a friend and another Jeep. Especially if you are going to an area you've not been to before. Page Rd. is a lot of fun but you do have to go past the first little spot with some ruts and tight turns. After that it opens up and there is a great hill climb then some single lane trails. Lots of places to explore and check out but as I've already said you need to do this with a friend.

PM me next time, I'd be happy to head out there with you to show you around.

I appreciate it. I may try to head back out there tomorrow afternoon with a friend but he's got a stock Jeep as well and hasn't been there before. He does have a tow strap so between the two of us maybe we can muddle through.

There's another place south of Holly Springs which is nearer us but potentially deeper muck. Not sure which one he will want to go to.

Got a video of shell getting stuck and un-stuck uploading now. Man there were a lot of jeeps today with KM2s. I'm really looking forward to getting a set of those once the duratracs wear out. If they ever will
