Jeffk1975 I just ordered my SYE and shaft so I won't be ready to do anything until after I install that.
But I'm dying to go play.

Any suggestions of local trails in the area to get warmed up on?

Anyone camp at Badin Lake?

Thanks!

Ah The Rock, how I miss that place.

Thanks for the info guys. I may try it next time I go with kneill and the guys from last time.

10cent Hey guys. My name is Mike and I live in North Raleigh (Six Forks and 540 area).

I've followed this thread for a few years, and I believe I met a few of you guys a year or so back out at The Rock, but never really got around to actually posting and figured it was time!

I've had a few JK's (2012 and 2013 Sport 2 door) and just sold my lifted 09 WK to pick up a 2015 Unlimited Sport. The mod sickness has already set in and I have a Teraflex 2.5" kit and 33x12.50 Grabber AT2's mounted on 15" MB TKO's on the way.

I'll post up some pics once everything is installed but figured I'd say hey to everyone.

NCtom Hey, URE looks/sounds great. I've explored a few potential spots near my house on 64, but most everything is posted. Found a couple short ones though is fun for me learning. Went to Breckenridge, but seems like more of a mud bog. I straddled what I could. Then my airbag light came on and horn quit working. Guess I get to Learn how to work on it starting now!
