Nice, please just drop me a thread if your heading up. Need to use this new toy until it breaks. Like I said, I'm new to the mountains, I'm just a muddier from IL. Thanks again

Lol I hear ya I was just a mudder when I came out here an the guys and gals in this section took me under their wing and taught me well. I'm sad to leave here. This is the best group of people I have ever wheeled with. They all have a lot of knowledge and are happy to teach anyone willing to learn.

But as long as your locked in the rear you'll have no issue keeping up. If you don't know what you have if it's a 35 more then likely it's not if it's a 44 it is

I might tag along and see how far I can get up before it starts getting sketchy, can afford to hurt anything but want to see how the new control arms flex

When are you leaving again? I would like to get out on a trail with you before you go.

I would love more than anything to go, but my front driver side axle is leaking oil onto my -C looking piece at the end of the axle and I don't want to chew up my gears. I'm pretty sure it's my axle seal, but I don't know much about axle's or how to replace the seals or how to change or replenish the gear oil for that matter... And she's my DD so I can't hurt her.

But take some pix so I can see what I missed out on. please

P.S.
