    So my recommendation would be to go with the SCX 10 JK version. If you can find the Currie version that would be cool because it has the LED lights on it so you can play at night too. I wouldn't go with the Wraith. It doesn't crawl to well out to the box and its a little to fast and unstable out of the box. The SCX 10 is awesome though box stock. I bought Parker one for his 6th birthday and he has been using it since. He hasn't broken anything in those years and he hasn't been easy on it.

    Me too. The boats in the driveway getting looked over and I'm heading to the coast on Saturday. I plan to put it all behind me and hopefully when I get back I can just keep moving forward and not look back.

    I'll be curious to see what you think of the ARB's. They are a Bypass to IIRC. I don't know anyone running them. .

    Hey guys!!! It's been awhile since I checked in. I think it's been since the Jeep Invasion. I've had a lot going on at work and personally. Good old Trump is making my job great again!!!! Besides that I have actually done a few things with the Jeep. The most important was running down some computer problems and getting the Christmas Tree off my dash. It's actually refreshing to get in it and not get sunburn from all the warning lights. Hopefully gonna work on a few things after I get back from a much needed vacation next week and get this thing back on the trails.If that doesn't happen I'm selling it or driving it off a cliff.

    Sorry for not getting on here in awhile. It's been a couple months that I would like to forget between work and some personal stuff. Anyway Uwharrie is a great little trail system. Nothing too extreme except for a few spots. There is the Big Creek area I could probably get access too which is a training center. We would need enough vehicles to make it worthwhile though. If you are thinking November I would recommend Veterans Day Weekend. There is a big ride out there I do every year. Free camping from Thursday through Sunday and there will be plenty of people to hang out and ride with. For the past few years it has been great camping weather too. High 60's during the day and 40's at night. This ride will have access to the national trail system plus a few of the different training facilities. A couple are only usually used for military training. There is also a range and in the National Forest so so me fun can be had there too.

    That's interesting. I've always tied the axles down

    I was always told not to tie down the frame with straps because the load they take when the Jeep Bounces. I've always tied to the axles. Any particular reason you tie the frame down?

    I'll have to see if there are any setting or what. I thought I had gotten around that by uploading them from the URL. I know when I used to use the HTTP code some people weren't able to see them

    Did you cut out the inner vertical panel that separates the wheelwell from the lights. I trim basically back to that. There is a point where basically you have to stop if you want to leave that inner structure in there still functional.

    I think you could probably keep your toolbox as long as it has an inch or so on each side. of it. My towers just barely go into the cargo area width wise. Maybe an inch. Here is the pic as an attachment.

    I uploaded them from a URL. They are hosted on Google so I guess I'm going to have to find a new place to host pictures. Lets see if they work as attachments. .

    I think the one I just completed came out as a nice compromise. It is using the 12" Fox 2.5 Performance Series double adjustable CO's on all 4 corners with air bumps so it can do what it needs to. We have about 5.5" of uptravel so it doesn't sit up to tall but with the double adjustable CO's if they want to go fast they can close of the high speed compression a bunch and get after it then open them back up and have a nice ride. They could also crank a few rounds in the preload and raise it up an inch and really get after it. It would be even better if the rear CO's were outboarded but they were not interested in cutting into the body. It sits up high enough to clear the 39's but not to tall.
  15. I ran around on 39's and 40's for 65K with factory unit bearings and I think the people that bought my axles are still running.
