For what it's worth... I am not affiliated with the Kansas Krawl and I did not build this website. So use it at your own risk.

Did Kansas just get the internet??

How is there "trail rating"?

Where do you think I fit in? 33's, and you know the axles.

Unless a magic bunny grants special peoples wishes and I somehow get some 37's and a welder.

Not sure on their trail rating. Last time I went I signed up for a specific trail rating and ended up in a group with tires no bigger than 35s. I was a little out of place. I think the good thing is that you can really do whatever you want or don't want. We could go off and make our own group. But you better get the 37s if you plan to keep up with the JK.

Not unless you plan on setting the JK body on your dodge frame.

Come to think of it....that's not a bad idea.

That little bitty wheelbase you run will be your down fall. Been awhile since I had to tug someone out the ditch.

My dodge frame is going to be stuck to the trailer. I guess I could always take the TWF buggy. But it might be cold.

I've always used Powerdrive... they do good work, and usually have them done in a day depending on what you're having done.

Whole rear cv shaft. And i want a 06 rubicon yoke put on the front axle side. I don't want to run a conversion joint. Spicer joints would ne nice. I'll give them a call and see what my options are.

I just need them done before the crawl.

I'm interested in going, kinda of a newb when it comes to driving, but I need to learn some way. Would be fine with limping along watching some others. If your serious about going; I'm in.

32's with LSD rear/8.8 and D30 with a Spartan. I'm thinking of getting my winch before heading that way though.

You'll do fine. There is stuff for all levels of jeeps.

I am just going trail riding. Most of the time I don't like sitting in a line waiting for everyone else so I will just go off and do my own thing. We could make our own WF group so nobody feels pressured to do anything they don't want to do.

Same...my plan is to just test out the new toys and ride around. Probally watch some of the competitors play in the rock pit.


Andy...is it better to register now or be fine to just do it when we get there?

Sounds like a plan. How many people show up at this thing. I'm all for the WF group.

The attendance has been avg lately. It fills a park shelter with a few standing. Not the most but not the least. I don't know actual numbers, just using my senseometer. I've been to 5 or 6 of the last 9 years as both a staff member in the first years and participant lately.

I'd suggest trail riding over comps if you are looking to get seat time.

I just got a wheeling fix at Disney last weekend so I may compete... Who knows
