Hey Matt,

Well I'm an old mudder from way, way back, so when I got the chance I went for it. Rocks on the other hand are very new to me and I'm not set up for it.

Cleaning a little mud is a minor issue, but rolling a Jeep, tearing up the underside of my Jeep because of Big Rocks is another matter. However mud and sand gets into your drive train and that is a big issue. Both cost a lot of cash, so I'll see which way I will go soon enough.

I'm leaning towards Baja, which is a whole different Animal there! I love motor sports and speed is my deal. I hit that mud hole at a fairly high rate of speed in 4 Low in 5 gear. No muss, no fuss!

You would only be 15 minute from me, but I don't get off until 5:00 and will not be home until 6:00 depending on traffic.

What say you?

I'll call you, because as much as this is going to hurt (since everyone will roast me), but I can't text. Never took the time to learn, or never cared to do so.

I can't see the point. It's crazy. Last time I went to visit my Son (29 now), we all were sitting in the same room and everyone was texting someone else. What's the point in being together? And if I'm not around the person I would like to converse, with I just call them...

It's a generational thing
But I can't stand to be in the same room and everyone is texting each other rather than talk. I just walk out of the room.

So David, when is the next group outing? And does anyone have a recommendations on a 2.5 lift that has both shocks and coils? I have 3 I'm looking at but I think I'm going to eliminate the rubicon express because because it's $100 more than I want to spend. To many options and not enough info :/

I'm going to have to pass. All my new lift, quick disconnects, bumper and other goodies should be coming in Thursday so my weekend will be figuring out how to install this stuff. Good thing I'll be off Friday -sun

I think my little air machine would fill up a tire in about 5 or 6 minutes, I'll test it out and let you know.

Mark was talking about a compressor that filled all 4 tires at 1 time. You might want to check that out. Maybe he'll see this and post the info about it.
Sorry, been traveling all week and couldn't find the link. Had it booked marked at home, so here you go. 4 tire inflator. Now this isn't the compressor, it's just the air lines.

On the compressor I'm leaning toward this one. It is a permanent mount. ARB

Anyone looking at going to the Hot Springs Jeep Jamboree event on 10/25-10/27? Has anyone been on one, can you recommend? I thought it might be a good first experience with the new Jeep since I have never been wheeling.

4 Wheel Parts in Dallas can "Kiss My A$$!!!

Nice guys, but don't know their A$$ from a Hole in the Ground when it comes to business!

Sorry but you just hit a nerve ending regarding 4 Wheel Parts. They over billed my credit card $252.44 and it took many calls and visits in person with the store manager, but he kept putting it off on the sales guy. After 65 Days I got a credit on my card -$41.99 short.

I called up and told them I'll never do business with them and they can take that $41.99 and stick it up their A$$!!!

I only do business with Quadratec now. Sort of sucks because if I need help with my installs they are the only game in town besides "Mike's Off Road" and they are so booked it takes forever to "Get R Done"!

Thinking about getting my wrenchs back out and contacting Quadratec about starting up a full service store in the DFW area? It's been a few years since I turned a wrench, but I loved it!

OK, I'm done now, but I still have a hard on for these guys and might even take it to court!!!

Just my 2 cents!!!
