Malebolgia I love the Moog U-joints that I put on my TJ. My 2 cents on the mechanic in the Littleton area is Southwest Automotive and 4X4. They were the only shop in town I let touch my Jeep.

CPA with most experience as a Controller with companies with sales in the $30 million/year range. I have done a lot of IT work with regard to setting up servers, workstations, firewalls but have no IT credentials. I meet with one finance recruiter on Monday.

Glad the weather is turning better.

ClayL Welcome to co, if anyone ever needs any help hit me up. Except today, I'm slapping a new front axle in my Cherokee today

REDY2KTJ I moved my wife to Ft. Collins in 2010, Im a US contractor overseas. Landed a job Last december there. Bought a TJ immediately and will be flying home from my little tropical Island of Curacao Friday morning. Never really wheeled in the snow, but lots of jungle wheeling in Panama'. I too am looking of a group or friends to meet to learn some local stuff. My Jeep is pretty well set up, but I am pretty mellow a so I am ez on the skinny pedal. Been some years now since I have wheeled would like to start on some ez stuff and gain confidence and one day go to HOLY CROSS!

cballou I too had a job before moving. Although my situation was unique in that my Fiance moved out here before me and got a place to live while going to school and I remained behind to work so I could pay bills while I job hunted. Lucky for me I had a place to stay so I could still work. Then when I found a job it was an easy move.

For the record I'm also in IT

That's very true. In the past I would tell my clients that admitting their addiction was the first step to getting help. However..Sorry Chad but admitting it will not help you or your wallet.
Also an addict...John

Justin04Lj I did notice the name spicer when I was under the jeep spinning the drive shaft.
03-25-2013 08:57 PM
Colo-TJ I would probably get a spicer for that one.......should be a 1310
03-25-2013 08:53 PM
Colo-TJ Rollie had that too. he replaced his and it went away. its kinda a pia to get to the bolts on the transfer case end. you can do it without taking off the skid but they are on the back side of the yoke.

cballou Thank you for the welcomes... I've always wanted a jeep and to get out on some trail rides but everyone says not to go alone, which I totally understand. On the same token there is always that fear of trying something new with people who are much more experienced. Hopefully getting introduced a bit thought forum first will help with that. Can't wait to be moved out there in a couple of weeks and meeting up for some runs!
