I live up in Stroudsburg but am definitely down for a meet, especially a Rousch trip. OK4WD does excellent work and has an excellent shop to walk through. The guys there definitely know there stuff, and the garage is clean and organized.

Ok4wd has easily been the best shop I've ever worked with. They know everything there is to know about jeeps. They've actually talked me out of spending more money than I needed to... Plus I send them emails alot asking about certain products and they respond very quickly In a language I can understand

Cool, thanks man! Looks like I may buy my lift through them since it's not that far of a drive for me. I have a friend of mine that I went to college with that owns Richard's drive in up in Forks Twsp. I can kill two birds with one trip. I'll keep you in mind if I get to do any wheelin and send you details if you wanna go sometime. I'm gonna be picking up an access permit for Reading Anthracite up in schuylkill county.

I'll do the install work myself. I wrench for a living and I have access to our shop 24/7. Their prices seem pretty good in comparison with other sites I've looked at and I wouldn't have to pay any shipping. The only work ever done to my jeep that was not done by me was my alignment and an axle seal that they managed to screw up at the dealership when I first bought it. I wasn't gonna fix something myself that should have been done at the dealership in the first place. We don't work weekends so I usually go in on a Saturday or Sunday to work on my own stuff.

Where is your shop and would you consider helping a fellow jeeper learn what he's got? I wanted to install my own lift but didn't know where to start.

I'm too impatient to wait for shipping. I haven't seen my buddy in awhile so I would probably stop in at his restaraunt for lunch and then head over to OK4wd since it's on the way. I like to be able to actually see the stuff in person before I buy too. Wasted alot of $$ over the years on motorcycle parts and other car parts that looked great in catalogs or websites only to be disappointed when they arrived. Just got my vacation time back for this year as of 1/1 so I may take a day off and run out there in a week or so.

Yeah shipping sucks. And OK seems to have a lot of good shit in stock too, I've never asked for something they didn't have... Oh and if its not on their site they may still have it

How did you total your Cherokee?

Does anyone know wheeling up in the Skook on the Reading Property is? I have only road dirt bikes and 4 wheelers up there and that was about 4 years ago. How much is the permit now?

$125 for the usage permit which covers your vehicle and you. Anybody with you must also have a permit. Access Permits - Reading Anthracite Coal They will give you a map of the property if you ask and I'm pretty sure it allows you to use all properties owned by them that are not actively being mined. I'll be up there this spring/summer on weekends when I'm not out on the boat.
