Trip to Attica IN/badlands 4/24 and 4/25.

I guess we are going to try to go both days. I will go both unless I have to work on the 24th. The 25th is a sure thing. Most likely both days. Hope to see you guys there.

Man, I was looking forward to gettin to this one... I'm in the process of lifting my jeep and the other day my front cv shaft broke while driving to work and cracked my T-case... So I won't be able to make it this month. I do hope you still plan on sticking to trying to do this once a month. My buddy and I are really planning on making some trips down there this summer. He is in the process of finishing up his 8.8 in his YJ. And we are both planning on being up and ready to go by mid May. And we usually only go with just the two of us, and it would be great and so much more fun to be more organized and meet up with fellow jeepers. So keep it posted on when you guys are planning to go and when our rigs are up and ready we'll be there!!

I will keep you posted. I hope everything works out for you guys. Also in may we are planning on going to redbird and camping out. I have never been there and my friends say it is nice. We will probly try to go on the holiday weekend and camp. I believe it is 1200 achers and it has some nice terrain. It is government owned so you need valid plates or you have to buy a sticker. Well I'll keep everyone posted.

I'm still planning on going - depending on the state of my hands.
Hell, I'm thinking of leaving right now and going... or maybe tomorrow... or both!
Seriously

I would do the tube fenders, to make room for the flex of the 37's

Well one week till we get down to the badlands. We all can't wait. We may in a motel since it might rain and it may only be in the high 40s at night. It says its suposed to rain every time we plan to go out to the badlands. We have been lucky so far and they have been wrong every time but once.

I might be able to make it depending on what happens this week. I need to get under the jeep and figure out some broken things lol. Really it is just my locker pump I need to get working again.

Just smack it with a big hammer. J/k How do you have it wired for power? What does it do or not do?

It is wired- power to the fuse, from the fuse it goes out in 2 lines- one to each switch then from they feed to each pump. Pretty simple, then the pump itself is grounded to the truck. It just stopped working last time out, I will pull it down weds when my new fenders get here. I have to pull my front diff now too I hate stupid people working on my jeep. I am not going to name names but this person decided to take the fitting out of the diff with vice grips screwing up the fitting. K my rant is over

So I pulled my front hubs apart to clean and re grease them. They look good lol. I have not pulled the diff cover yet to fix the line. Will be doing that tomorrow night. Then while I am doing that I will be figuring out why my pumps are not working......

These past 2 weeks- bought flattie fenders then today bought jks 1.25in body lift along with ultra skinny tummy tuck aluminum . So I hope I figure out my pump issue and it fires back up because with the belly not rubbing it will be more fun to make it up axle breaker again without bottoming out this time.

Figured out some cool stuff . Locker pumps still work, they just don't like pumping water into a sealed unit lol. So I am moving them now to under the hood. I need to make sure my breather for them doesn't spring a leak again. I am just waiting on parts for this weekend now. Ohh I need to find a 28 foot trailer anybody got one I can borrow lol
