So the Jeep is now in the garage with no front passenger tire installed and on Jack stands. Calling the dealer tomorrow to hopefully get it covered under my warrenty.
Here is a pic of my neighbor torching my wheel stud.
That sucks! How did you strip it or was it already stripped?

The wheel stud was already stripped, probably some lazy ahole used an impact wrench to tighten down the lugs last time. Calling the dealer today, hopefully they hook me up!

If the dealer doesn't come through, I think I got my socket at AutoZone. It's either 35 or 36 mm, I have both from Jeep and CTS-V work. It's on there pretty tight, I know the TJ ones are 175 ft-lbs.

Are you talking about the 12 point socket or the spindle?

Great news, talked to the dealership and they said I just need to replace the wheel stud. So I did and the Jeep is back in commission!!! If anyone in the DC area has problems call mark at fair oaks Dodge Jeep service department. He didn't try to stiff me and was willing to answer any questions!

I was talking about the spindle. The 12 point is just a 13mm.

Great news on getting a new stud put in.

Yeah we got the Spindle nut off with no issues. It was the 12 point bolt that I was concerned about.

I got the stud from the dealership, brought it home and put it on. I think its has to be one of the biggest reliefs I have felt about a vehicle in a long time knowing that $5 and some good ol' fashion labor fixed it!

Do you have any info on the trail conditions at flagpole? You think it would be possible to do a run out there this weekend?

Parts are here! Just went by to look at he new winch to make sure it's what I wanted. Taking the jeep in Friday. Looks like this weekend is out but I should be ready in the not too distant future.
So far I've upgraded the winch, got a 2"BB w/ shocks and a viair88p air compressor. Might as well get some benefit out of having my jeep wrecked.

I do indeed. We had a couple guys head up after our club meeting Sunday since it was out in Front Royal. They said they were able to navigate it pretty easily and the ice that caused all the issues was gone. Sounds like it should be good to go for you guys.

Sweet deal! Is there a place that might sell a map of the trails in harrisonburg? If not is it pretty easy to navigate?

I don't know if there is a place that sells maps. There are some maps online, and some links to maps and info over at odjeeps.com, another local Jeep group.
