Yes I'm going to the 8am service then get a "get out of jail free card" because I installed my new tranny cooler. It cost me a pair of Coach Shoes for the Boss. Well worth it!! :D

Gunner...The Trans cooler did stellar! No more "Hot Oil Light" Had a great time solo mission. Here are some pictures for your enjoyment. :D

R8DRIZD 03-17-2013 11:52 PM

A Nice day!

Gunner 03-18-2013 12:12 AM

Looks like it was a beautiful day for that trail.

R8DRIZD 03-18-2013 12:39 AM

It still has me thinking why I take some of those off shoots.

Man, I wish I could have gone out, not much more than fire roads but is is just awesome out there. I just picked up a TJ and have a few things to sort out .... Got my beadlocks and 35's on it yesterday. I have to replace some heim's in the steering, they are getting a little loose. Hopefully won't be long til I am tearing this thing up.

Cool Welcome to the forum. I have a TJ on 35's and am a newb too. My first real 4wd off road vehicle. Always dirt bikes before. You guys Stop by the clubhouse and introduce yourself. Lots of runs going on the cal section of the forum.

Cleveland Forest website still says North Main Divide Road is CLOSED. Was this the South portion? I want to get up to Santiago Peak when it's accessible.

The North Main Divide at Maple Springs is closed to get up to the Santiago Peak, But the main Divide from the 91fwy (North side) all the way to maple Springs is open. You need to go up through Corona.

Aw no wonder the trail looked different. I'm used the starting at the 74 hwy.
Very cool. Wish I was able to join.
Have you tried going up off weirk rd off the 15?

Gunner 03-18-2013 05:27 PM

SoCal Clubhouse thread. It's where we cook up runs and outings. Then we post them up.

Got it! I'm a sharp one. :D

You think a 2wd Lifted Excursion with Mud Tires and a Limited slip would make that run?

For a good portion of the fire road. There are spots going towards Ortega where you need 4x4.
