End of Southern in Rio Rancho or just the west mesa. I'm near ventana ranch. Also there's a few of us locals that started meeting at Twin Peaks at 5:30pm on the first Wednesday of the month. Come meet up. All are a great bunch of guys and gals who are family friendly. My wife was really impressed with the group. Maybe next weekend we can putt around. I've got a stock JKUR.

What's a good axle to go to on a yj? I want to get lockers but I dont want to risk breaking an axle if I can help avoid it. I have the stock Dana 35 on it right now. How much work is it to switch to a larger axle? I got to ask to learn!

Over by CNM westside, by Unser and McMahon, in the Mesa there are some pretty sweet hills for climbing and some nice washout trails

I'm out there pretty often. I live just down the road from there.
