So anyway, stopping in because I'm about to rent a uhual trailer and didn't know what people were using as a ball mount...I did install the Rugged Ridge 11580.51 Black Receiver Hitch Kit. Wasn't sure if the recommended 2 inch drop is good enough (still have the factory tires, no lift) or are people going with an adjustable ball mount or lower drop.

Thoughts/experiences?
A ball height of 18-20" will be good for most trailers.

Congrats on your son! Hope the terrible twos are behind you soon, too!

Bertman22 Actually the mud part was kinda an accident. I just planned a little off roading when i ran into some suspect mud. About a 30 feet stretch and well you saw the end result. Frankly I'm going to steer clear of the mud. In my opinion probably not worth the ride. But if you own a Jeep is probably going to happen at some point.

Can't help with the uhaul, sorry. Mike adds drops for our trailer, but we have big tires and lifts.

I did want to say CONGRATULATIONS!!! A new son!

Delivered mid April, and I'm at 4000 miles now. Wow that's not a lot! I don't have a long commute to work though. I'm still surprised because my 2 yr old insists on taking the jeep out to run errands every Saturday & Sunday! She's hooked.

Lol I would have never done all the stuff I've done on this vacation without my lift and recovery equipment I had no problems anywhere but if I did I felt pretty confident I have the tools to get myself out of trouble.

New Willys to Old Willys???

When does a new Willys purchased in May 2014 turn into an old Willys in Oct 2014?
It happens when the speedometer does this : However, it has been the BEST 10K I have ever driven!!!! In addition, I've also added a winch. The mods just keep on coming. I lost a 1/2" with the winch, so now I guess I have to do new springs or a lift or both. The hits just keep on coming..

Muddin' to me is what my sister used to do. Hang out with a bunch of rednecks and see how big of a rooster tail they could throw while drinking shitty beer. No thanks.

Run your sprinkler under the Jeep for about 30 minutes when you get home. Helps loosen everything up. But yeah, not a lot of fun getting rid of that mud. Glad you had fun though.

Yes if you have a 2-door but I you have a 4-door you will drag on the ledges the lift and lager tires made a huge difference.

I love that area, St. Mary's... Spent a few years there, some of the best memories came from SE Georgia. Was with the Marines security forces on Kings Bay.

Here's pictures of the signs the first one was just to tell you yes you go down this big giant hill and everybody else does it so don't be a wuss. The second two were going down and up switchback to let you know that you have to pull in and back down the hill and the second one was to let you know when you're coming back do you have to pull in and back up the hill I don't think I would want to try making the turn even in a 2 door very tight.
