Is it just me or does it seem like their greens are really easy.

I've been there about 5 times and to me it seems as that their trails are either really easy or really extreme. The only trail I've been on there that I've had trouble with was a blue and that was because the was a tree and and rock close together. Well after almost everyone in the group I was with had to get winched over the rock. They cut the tree down to give you more room to work around the rock.

I agree. They are working on improving. I go to college 15 mins away and plan on trying to get more involved and get some more trails cleared up.

I was there for opening day and helps them clean out the garage. They plan on making it a repair center. I was on one trail that wasn't on the map. It was a green the split off about half way through to a blue. But the trail that was marked as a blue had rock cliffs that were about 5 foot tall.

Everything considered though. I prefer rock run to scrubgrass. With the way scrubgrass marks their trails it's scary. Last time I was there I ended up on an extreme atv trail and had to back up about 200 yards to get off it.

Haha that's not good at all. Rock run isn't bad, I was glad I'm good with maps.

I'm pretty good with maps too (the army made sure of that). But I still have to be able to figure out where I'm at on a very basic map when coming off a trail that isn't on the map.

A buddy of mine might be making the trip with me. He has an old blazer that he's been wanting to test out.

Did you have to remove your ring gear to install yours?

I know I did. Not sure I had to. I think spartan says you don't but it's not hard.

Taking the ring gear off the carrier is the only thing I'm a little worried about doing.

It's easy. Vice and take it off. Torque the bolts when it goes back on. Be careful to mark the bearing caps when you remove the carrier though. They need to go back on the same way.

I have to line the ring gear back up to the same position on the carrier when I put it back on right.

I believe so, but I bet it wouldn't matter too much if you messed up. If I remember correctly I just took a good sharpie and put a nice line from the ring gear to the carrier and lined that back up when. Was done. Cleaned them with brake cleaner first so the marker took and so there was no greases to rub around to take it off.

Really wasn't. I taught myself/did mine myself. No vice either. That was interesting.

Good thing I'm tough right? The torquing was easy. Trying to get them out is even more fun

How the heel did you get the carrier out of the case

pry bar, rotate the carrier so the lip is pointing up, like the flat side of one side is horizontal to the cover surface. If that makes sense. Put the bar down under the lip and pry it out. It might work better from the bottom side, be ready to catch it. I think I set the crow bar in like so, then gave it a few taps w/ a hammer on the last one. It will start to work out. Go light so it doesn't end up on your lap/the ground.

I had to rip my last one out while the axle was out of the vehicle, and it was a lot harder. Took me 20 mins+ to get the pinion secured on a wood block and the carrier in the right position for my to pry/tap it out.
