I am hoping to get to hit a few parks this year. If they open one in olive hill maybe we can get a group together to check it out and maybe a few other parks to.

ford ranger 4x4 of course..
i had a guy offer me a j4000 but my needs are a smaller truck that i can still weave threw the forest..and if im going to sacrafice my jeep i want something newer..
i actually picked up a 97 ranger the other day but its 2 wheel drive but it has the 8.8 rear end with posi. it does have a rebuilt title but looks good and runs good but i need 4x4 and i got that one on the cheap..and going to sell it to.so if you know anyone looking for a gas sipper i got one for sale at a very good price..

man im telling ya what though the more i drive this yj the more i love it,,wish i could keep it and still afford a very nice ranger but dirt farming and rental properties just cover the bills...lol

thats what i have in this yj too and it makes a big difference and nice to have the disc brakes on the yj,,i can stop soo much better even on the slickest steepest hills..
i have the ranger on cl for 3 and i want to make some profit on it to be honest but im willing to neg.on price ,,but it is a nice little truck even though it has a rebuilt title it runs great and tracks just fine no problems with it at all we have been driving it every day,,as far as i can tell it needs nothing..

Ok just took the jeep to the shop for the tires and alignment but going over 30 and hit any bump no matter how small and it wil shake you out of the road. I hope the tires and alignment works or they find the problem.

Yea the death wobble is gone. I asked the to check out all the steering components they said it was all good, but I drove it to work today and it just didn't feel right. No wobble or anything like that just something did not feel right. So I crawled under it when I got home and found a lot of play in the track bar at the axle end. So I guess I am going to replace it probably will just rebuild the entire steering. I hate to spend the money but I also hate problems.

Working on getting tires now. I have found some rims with a deeper offset that will work with the 33 x 12.50 so I am probably going to end up staying with the same size that are on it. The jeep is running like a top. Not a single problem at all. I have a front shackle that has flipped on me, but the weather has been to bad to mess with it yet. I drive her about 60 miles a day and love every minute of it.
