Someone posted last week to be careful this time of year in Wharton.....TICKS.
Careful going topless.
I go topless after I leave, ticks freak me out.
Last year we went topless and the trails were kind of dry, we joined up at the end of about a dozen Jeep convoy. Took me two weeks to get myself and the Jeep clean. There was trail dust EVERYWHERE.

I'm sure it was wet in most spots I was out last Sunday and we had more rain since then.

I'm going out this Sunday again. Me and 2 Cherokees if any one wants to see some cool places in Wharton/pl area feel free to tag along. Just pm me.

The trails I went on weren't too bad. We had our share of deep puddles but nothing that you went up to your doors in.
Overall it was a nice day out.

Wharton, I'm done with you. Bad water, bad soil, you hv to wash ur rig immediately or it stains. plus if you only hv tires and a leveling its no challenge. Rausch Creek spoiled me

Damn I was out there last Sat with a group of Wranglers and one XJ. We passed a few ppl but didnt see any Wranglers. Did see quite a few ppl at one kayak spot. Maybe it was us you saw.

I wanna go out this weekend but I cant make Sat. I have work till 3. I will more then likely be out Sunday for a lil tho. Ive been last 4 weekends in a row, why not. lol.

williamstown. my buddy i bought the jeep from built it up. he did 95% of the work himself. im not real machanical...lol i know just enough to know to use a good mechanic lmao

im real new to the whole jeep thing.... is there a prob w/the d35? im not runnin lockers,as a bit of an amature, i figured lockers would give me a false sense of security.

i havent had it sunk yet, or stuck for that matter. i like mud, sand, and the whole off road in the woods thing. i really have no interest in rocks or climbin anything, esp. since im not real mechanical or rich, i dont wanna break alot of stuff.

The d35 is considered and I guess you could say proven to be a very weak axel for a few reasons. Its said to not be able to handle larger tires let a lone 35s. Ive been on mine for over a year with 307s and now 410s. I dont wanna go to the 4.88s I need for fear of breaking it easier with the more power making it to the ground. DEF cant lock it with 35s. Other then that I feel like if you know its your weak point and dont push it too hard youll be ok for a while. Every jeep and every scenario is different tho. Rock climbing and too much off chamber stuff would be bad and NEVER let it "bounce". If your loosing traction to the point of hopping and bouncing your going to break it. The worst part is since its a c clip design youll be stuck out there dead in your tracks with a wheel falling off most of the time. lol.

I have a plan for me if that ever happens tho. lol.

The d30 is a little better supposedly but not for 35s either. I had a d30 go on me before my d35 did.

The combo Im working on building is a ford 8.8 out of a an explorer(disc brakes too) and a HP d30 out of 95-99 Cherokees.

I almost put a 1ton in the back of my Tj when I just swapped axels with this guy but I didnt think it would end up to be worth the price and trouble AT THIS TIME.

Is there going to be a HP30 for sale when this happens because if so Ill take it!
