Put the center console up for sale in the for sale section on JKO. Surprisingly when I upgraded my center console there was someone looking for one. But I just charged shipping fee since I was gonna throw it away anyways.

Fresnohall Thanks guys. Perhaps a blessing in disguise, been saying I would upgrade wheels n tires when these wore out, maybe I can convince myself to do it now. Is there any market for rubi rims and tires? Rims in great shape, 4 good bfg muds...

Do I just put up on craigslist?

unclesamsmisguidedchild Sidewall punctures on the trail you just plug them until you can get off the trail and get a new tire.

Start shopping.

Beastmaster Yep, that's pretty much it.

Well, that and stop running over sticks.

Fresnohall Hey guys and gals, I gotta pretty good sized stick that went through the sidewall of a pretty new tire... As a jeep newbie, Anything I can do about it or just go shopping?
04-14-2014 07:51 AM
Beastmaster you might want to take a look under your front end and make sure everything is okay. I'd pay particular attention to your track bar.

unclesamsmisguidedchild Usually means your steering wheel isn't centered in relation to the front wheeels.

NU2DAWAVE Hey guys or gals last week over at Elvis and Jackhandle these lights turned on but haven't turned off was wondering if any of you had this happen or know how to resolve this situation. Is it bad to drive around with them on? I don't feel any thing wrong as I drive

That made for a long day.

Yes the hardest one I have been on. Mentally and phsically demanding all day long.

Is H2H the hardest trail you have been on?

Considering I high centered twice in Florence the weekend before last weekend, until I get my 37s I am not going back. Tires should be on first week of May. Driveshaft is ordered, getting new shocks for the rear, one has a huge dent. If I can sell my Blazer I will get an air locker for the front and be selectable front and rear.

Saturday a select group ran highway to hell for the 1st time ever. I never thought that my jeep would be up to that level but it is.

NU2DAWAVE Hey thanks you guys for the advice basically use what ever you got got it
04-04-2014 04:34 PM
ferninAZ I have the base made by hi lift which is a little wider on all sides but not as tall as the AEV one. Way better than a 2x4. I have a hi lift and my scissor jack in my Jeep. I have used the hi lift to do everything but change a tire on a trail. The scissor jack has always worked changing a tire. Way safer.
04-04-2014 04:27 PM
unclesamsmisguidedchild or why not get the AEV jack base and run the stock scissor jack?

04-04-2014 04:25 PM
unclesamsmisguidedchild Look at 90% of the stuff that we run on. Rocks, I dont' think an inflatable jack would be good in the rocks. Everyone always runs a hi lift but they are dangerous as hell. Why not try and find a aluminum floor jack that will fit in the back? You can lift under the axle, might need to carry a board for the jack to sit on though so that it doesn't sink.

He did convince me in buying the inflatable but just wondering are they any good as in: Wear, durability, do they work? Has any one out there used one? If so did you like it and why? Sounds like an interview but hate to spend all that money and come to find it doesn't work
he did convince me but I haven't bought nothing yet wanted to know a little bit more about the inflatable

unclesamsmisguidedchild 0900 at the white water tank at Sandman road and Price road in Florence. Don't be late because we won't be there.

Here is the map of the route from the 79. It is 7.5 miles down price road.
