Day Trip?

Since I did some suspension work to our XJ over the winter months, I'm looking to do a day trip to Rausch on May 1st. Will be doing greens and some blues. Anyone want to join is welcome.

Re: Day Trip?

Pulled the trigger back on Friday for a new gas tank skid (IRO - gotta support the sponsors) and a set of the Circle S rear bumper brackets.

With a little luck, I'll be rolling into Rausch for this run with new armor out back...

Cool. Those Circle S brackets require some cutting in the rear. We run them also.

Re: Day Trip?

I have a sawzall, two grinders, a Dremel, and a couple hacksaws. I think I can handle that.

Re: Day Trip?

Due to someone's dumb luck (mine). I'm not going to make it. Had picked up a used front diff and the person told me that it had 3.55 gears. Pulled the cover off, come to find out it has 4.88.s. So needless to say. I have to regear and the jeep will not be ready by the first. Sorry guys.

Re: Day Trip?

Any updates?

Got my brackets painted, and the skidplate arrived last Saturday. Hoping to maybe work on installing them this weekend, if the stars align (if not, certainly they'll be in by NACFest).

Re: Day Trip?

As far as me I'm still out. Front axle is whining. Need to send to shop and have them look at it. Sorry
