I'm all loaded up and heading out around 6am. I have to make 1 stop to sell some rims and on to the park. Looks like it should be a great day to get in the woods for some wheelering

How'd the LJ do up there? We were supposed to go but our daughter decided she wasn't waiting until her due date to come into this world. I want her to start jeeping when she's young but I think less than a week old would be a bit premature

This was a BLAST! It was my first time to the park. The kids loved every minute of it and so did I. We ended up getting several prizes and we found the silver egg. What a day!

Full knuckle rebuild kit from trail gear has been ordered
ARP studs have been ordered
New leaf springs from all-pro have been ordered
PSC full hydro kit is in the barn waiting to go on

Should have a almost new axle when I'm done.

It looked like a fun rig you have that place seems to find all the weaknesses in our setups.
The steering box on my cherokee blew off the frame on the Python a couple years ago. The people in our sport are great everyone that knew there was a problem wanted to help. The crew at Rocks and Valleys are a good bunch they were going to bring a loader out if I needed .
Show us how you do your Hydro setup I'm considering the same thing.
