I know many like the Ace but I like the Smittybilt myself. Thinking of the Smittybilt sliders and the Bestop Element Door with the cargo bag

Looks great! I was also pleasantly surprised at how smooth the ride is on my new Duratracs.

I wish. I need to find a new trail around here. My favorite trail was closed a couple months ago. the owner of the property died and his family has no plans to allow ORV anymore. I hope they change their minds but need to find somewhere else. They have some nice scenic trails but nothing challenging like that place was.

Rics you need to come over to NC and hit up Uwharrie with us. One of the best ORV areas on the East coast for sure. 20+ miles of trails and camping.

Say what now? Is this an event at Uwharrie, or just generally? Is it just jeeps, or does it include women too?

And you've got to let me know next time you're headed to Uwharrie. I've actually never been . . . pretty pathetic considering I live in NC.

It's a giant meet and great at Locked and Loaded in Garner NC May 19th. You should come! We could hit up Uwharrie any weekend you want, I'm dying to get back down there.

I'll tell you what--those JCRs are awesome and can't beat the price. They did finally send me the nutsert tool, which came in last night. I think I'm just going to install them with Dustin, as 4wd is going to charge me an arm and a leg and they can't get me in until the end of April anyway. I did put on up to the side of the jeep with a floor jack, and it looked SA-WEET.

USS Curts FFG-38. I was assigned to her soon after she was commissioned in 1984. We were a Anti-Submarine group and chased subs all around the Pacific.

I thought it might be familiar. I was running tug boats here in Japan when she was home ported out of here 94'-97'.

It was definitely a interesting ship to be on. It also took the first prisoner of war in the First Iraq war. captured a Iraq patrol boat right before the invasion. One of my most memorable times was once we chased a Soviet Sub from Alaska down around Hawaii and back up to the sea of Japan. they must have go pizzed at us because they sent this massive destroyer out to greet us there. Never seen so many guns on one ship as that one had
