What ever you do if you undercote it don't line the bedding it makes it so Moisture can't get out and it will cause rust

umm theres bull park, eagle creek, and saran wrap. the only way to get into bull park that i kno of is going down eagle creek. and personally i dont think im ready for that trail or i dont think my jeep is. saran wrap is just as bad so im a little timid on those.

Wow, I've really neglected this thread...

I probably can't do anything for a few more weeks. I've got graduation and a fishing trip up in Canada followed by wisdom teeth removal. It'll probably be closer to mid June.

i figured out my confusion with bull park.

anyways, forest service rd 376 is what you take to get to bull park.

rd 376 is approx. 7 miles from rd 379 which is mount baldy. so im more than down to do both trails

sounds good, man!!!

and yes i meant disconnect my sway...i dont have my quick disco's in yet so not gonna do that.

But awesome, we'll definitely hit both trails...i'm game either or even both days lol

I might try and get to a shop in the springs as well, they're gonna fabricate my front and rear bumpers for me sometime and figure why not check if they're open if i'm already there!

Sounds good, man!

Like i said...just lemme know when you wanna go and i can make it work. I'm off all weekend

The worst case scenario if i worked would be saturday from 8-noon...thats all

But yeah, i'm waiting on my disconnects to come in and cant find my t55 torx at the moment.

Plus, disconnecting isnt needed for a 2 trail like baldy or bull...if we hit eagle or somethin, then it'd be beneficial

Yea. I feel ya on the disconnects but I'm not ready for eagle yet. So that one will be on your own if you wanna do it. As for bull and baldy I'm more then down. And I'm thinking Sunday.

I'll most likely tackle eagle when i get my new bumpers, rocker guards, disconnects, and corner guards.

Right now i'm more than comfortable doin level 1,2,3 and some 4's....5-7 will wait a bit...and i wont be tackling any 8-10s with this wrangler. Gonna wait for the next one lol

sounds good, i'll pm you my cell number...
