high elevation trails are typically June/July. lower stuff start to open April 1 and progressivily start working up the mountain through April and May. this has been a productive year for snowfall and February March are our snowiest months. then the snow starts coming back to the high stuff around October.

Know what you mean, for all practical purposes mines always been a four speed, except maybe downhill with a tailwind.

What I'd really like is a six speed but I think I've blown my jeep budget for a very long time unless I can find a deal on a midnight special...

If they're broken in you're fine. If not I don't want you going all wild and crazy when you get on a trail...

Changed radiator, water pump, thermo last week.

The wobble really happens way less now but I'm still on the no wheel list. Likely selling it and buying a 4 door.
