NCtom Hey fellas iam thinking this weekend is a good time for a repeat. My grass is growing slower. Maybe we could make it a half day and visit TW TOO.

So much fun I don't think my wife will pass this time. Daughter loved it.

I hope those J10 dudes find the website. I'd like to know how they did out there.

For sure! I saw a camp ground there. At least someone made a fire. Ha I suggest we have a meet there at least once a month when feasible. I'm sure after the rain last night its horrible...even we went it still had mud holes but only a few..rest was packed an dusty...there are some deep ruts. It needs some love and attention you almost cant avoid the ruts and my jk, without a lift felt insignificant. But as I mentioned, never felt completely uncomfortable or worried. I panicked when I pressed my clutch in water...but thankfully it wasn't deep enough.

For those who haven;t been there this place has a lot of unexpected crawling, fording, and some pretty technical ruts. In one of the pictures you can see that I took some fauna on my front left steering knuckle. However I am floored at the capability of my stock jk. The crappy SRA tires ate that mud and dirt and ruts for lunch never got "stuck" I stopped for a moment after going into a deep mud pit. However this is when I pressed my clutch in but, the bell housing isn't dirty, so I am not concerned. After climbing a very steep slope. (NCtom and I) found our just how capable our rigs are. We both had to step out on top of the hill to actually see how steep it was. Kept it in 4L in 2nd gear most of the time except for the hill and the deep mud where I went into mud. I cannot stress enough the sheer ability of this thing even with the crappy 3.21 gears and stock tires.

My ATX wheel are teflon coated and that really proved its mettle when you see our two jeeps together after we paused to catch ourselves after just seeing sky. I was actually worried we couldn't get up!

On the way back we met two guys, Tyler and Howell (I believe) Howell has a sick 89 J10 pickup on 37" humvee tires and we stopped to chat and show off our rigs and they explained it was their first time there and what lied ahead of them.

Anyways hope you all enjoy the photo album, its on imgur.

I send them to Olivers in Winston. Not really any way to make it work if the shaft isn't the right length. Cheap to have cut down but if you need to lengthen its gonna be cheaper to sell the shaft and get a Cherokee one to have cut down

Also on a side note I have a Detroit locker for a dana 44 if anyone needs a locker

Speaking of that. Anyone know any good powdercoaters in the area?

Mammoth919 Thanks man! Other than the crappy center caps. Which they are replacing.
09-21-2014 06:05 PM
johnwj I like the wheels. I had several people at different shops try to convince me to run those on my granite jk. Went with the other version of the Teflon coated atx's and love them.

NCtom We can try anyway. It's right off the exit of 40 and page. You can see it on google maps. I think it's the north side of the intersection. We will give a couple hours of coffee time to anyone else who wants to guide a couple rookies. If not no problem we go!
09-21-2014 06:46 AM
Mammoth919 I have no idea where it is. As much as I don't like the title. I am a newb. Ha i got 32" no winch and limited knowledge.
09-21-2014 06:11 AM
NCtom Mornin folks I'm up. Grass was cut yesterday, wife is going to the movies w her sister and I'm ready to hit page. Who else, when and where to meet?
09-20-2014 02:01 PM
NCtom What time? One more JEEP would be nice since we are both kind of rookies.

I have a 97 with 3.5 inch lift and 33s. No winch and a smashed thumb.
