No, thank you guys! I had a lot of fun out there today and hopefully we can do it again soon. I don't think it's a big problem that i have with the transfer case but I still haven't done any research. Good thing it didn't stay in 4low though......

I just did a quick google search and found lots of forums related to the t case. Sounds like a bushing is to blame--- what year is your jk? In some cases the dealer replaced the t case linkage with a better design for free--- it was a big problem in jks for a while.

yea I did a search late last night and read that. I doubt they'll replace anything for free around here especially with the amount of problems I've had with my local stealership....I still haven't opened it up to check what's going on but I have a feeling its some plastic retainer clip that breaks as a safety precaution to protect the t-case. I might just make a steel one and put that in so it wont happen again. Ill have to do this as soon as i get back from my trip so i can go wheeling again i had a blast out there!

And don't forget, you need to do something about the front bumper!

You did pretty damn good getting out of the creek area in 2wd! It looked like you were stuck for a minute there, but you found a better line. Those BF Goodrich MT's served you well!

And you should get a CB, It's a good thing to have on the trail, and a good kit is pretty cheap.

The heavy rain made this trip a bit more fun. I thought I was going to get to use my winch up by the well.

There was one place where the trail ends on a hill. The hill was slick. While I was turning around, I started to slide sideways down the hill. Weird feeling.

There were Jeeps all over the place last Sunday. That one two Jeep group was too clean. I don't think they ventured off the main roads. But I was the only Teej out there!

Those are definitely my next few mods! Bumper and CB, very important. I might just chop the front bumper though...not too sure yet. And I'm glad I got those MT's, they look good and work very well
