Wash #1 was done before dinner. #2 tomorrow. And wax then too. You see the pic of the rear bumper? That happened at that last section before we left. Oh well.

Kept getting hung up while trying to clear a path least taken. Tunz took it on and succeeded until he sank on the other side. Wish I was more capable of posting vids. Tire was dragging on higher ground.

Had a great week/weekend guys. But I'm so wore out after it all, I don't want to move for a solid 12 hours lol. Big thanks to everyone whos helped get the new rig ready for the adventures this weekend and getting parts and turning wrenches when it broke. It was good meeting a bunch of new guys this weekend too. Think ya'll will ale a great addition to the crew!

But after all the money spent and time away from HQ, I'm prob gonna lay low for a week or two and recoupe, then I'll be back in full swing.

Hope to see the video soon if the computer doesn't crash.... Again!

Vids' worked, nice. Wish I could have made it also. I was just there last weekend and can't picture where that is. Is it at what used to be the end where we would take the pics? That berm looks kind of like that but a lot muddier...

BlacketOut. I have often thought about the trail Jeep too... nice if you have access to another one! If I can keep my son interested I might have some leverage for another one....

It is at the end. Tunz dominated it at a couple different points in his new rig. Loads of fun.

Glad to hear you're moving around, and there was video taken of the ZJ, but none I took. So I'm sure you can request the, from those who took video Sat and Sun. She did work for sure! Still learning how to wheel it but it holds its own

Think it was BlackedOutJeep and NiceGuy who did most the video this weekend. Would like to see some footage myself

Ray did work following the ZJ today!

Corolla/Grave Digger

Sorry I missed the wheeling this weekend, but my wheeling on the banks of Corolla made up for it. And yes, seeing the Beast next to the Grave Digger rigs definitely made my 40's look tiny.

I am 99% sure it is just the coil, it is the one thing I didn't replace when I bought it and did a full tune up. No telling how long ago it was changed out (if ever) by the previous owner, and I have had it for about 7 years myself and not changed it so... LOL. I am oncall next weekend so I should be good to go again when you are done relaxing lol

I was in Charlotte all weekend and couldn't come out, looks like you guys had a great time.

Anyone want to go out on Wednesday after work (Around 6 pm - 9 pm(ish)) or Friday afternoon? I am getting some car washing supplies and I would like a good reason to use them haha

I may be getting new axles soon so mine will be for sale

Heck yeah! Do you have a time frame in mind? I know my wife would be a lot happier if I would stop taking our JK out there, lol..... Let me know.

As for the clutch slave cylinder, I can get from LKQ as Donny G recommended or just purchase new for that matter.

man, I had a no fire problem when I first bought my XJ. CPS, coil, plugs, wires, sensors... ended up being a blown fuse lol. . Glad you have it narrowed down.

Lol the commentary is great. If the ZJ or Jeremy's YJ is out wheeling, be ready for new routes to be taken!

Thanks Trent I'm sure the beach trip was easily as good as wheeling local spots in the the rain on Sat and the usual TW/Page ride Sun. Plenty more to catch up on! But it has been since Uwharrie since I last saw the Hulk. Deff need more Jeeps with 40's. But makes everything seem so easy now. I want to wheel the ZJ some more then jump back in the XJ and realize how hard some of the lines are again lol.
