Slade this Saturday 24 SEP

I have a good friend with a JK (I give him hell in the leaf vs coil debate) coming up from Eglin AFB this weekend, so we are going to hit the trail this coming Saturday, looking to get one or two more jeeps on board if anyone wants to join us. I'm only really familiar with the trail off Fixer-Leeco ...

Anyone up for Slade/DBBB this Sunday the 11th?

I missed the last open ride, and a few Friends of Boone rides this Spring/Summer due to being on orders. I was wondering if anyone had any interest in hitting a few trails Sunday? I have a new engine in the YJ, wanted to stretch it's legs. Anyone going out? -Mike 859-585-8061

Re: Hydrolocked and mystified - Help?

Looks like I'll be doing an engine swap. Its seized up. Not worth doing a RR job. As much as I hate to spend the $ I'll probably go with a re-manufactured engine from Bessler or Jasper vs. a rebuilt used one.

Hydrolocked and mystified - Help?

Posted this over on Jeep Forum but want your all's opinion. Need some help! So here's the story: So I get back from about 5 months of active duty at Fort Lee and take the jeep out for the FIRST TIME about 3-4 weeks ago. I'm out on a drive here in Montgomery county, gravel roads, nothing rough whatso...

Re: Flat Belly

Looks good Tom, nice job. I head heard leaks were a common issue with the mod. I'm doing something similar with my YJ this winter, also have the Brown Dog 1" MML, Daystar 1" body lift on my YJ. I went with a Barnes 4WD 2" drop skid to avoid clocking (hopefully), based on what the folks at Barnes sug...

Re: Spring '15 Recruitment Ride - Saturday May 30 @ Slade

Here's my YJ in Townsend Cave with some ambient brake light effect. So when is the next ride or club meet coming up? Have to attend two prior to joining correct?

Re: Spring '15 Recruitment Ride - Saturday May 30 @ Slade

Thanks for the opportunity to come check out the trails and the club, enjoyed it and looking forward to the next one. I was in the only other YJ, black one with the safari top. After Saturday, it's making me want to get that 8.8, locker and SYE in sooner rather than later!

Re: Spring '15 Recruitment Ride - Saturday May 30 @ Slade

Disregard. Did a little scouting and found it. I was planning on *attempting* to checkout Townsend/Stump Cave this weekend prior to the ride on the 30th. My question is, will not having a locker stop me from making the trail ride? Are there any bypasses so that it's not as major of an issue or shoul...

Anyone available this coming Sunday? I'd like to check out the trails a bit, prior to the event if possible. -Mike If you don't make it out this weekend, search on Youtube for these terms, it'll give you an idea of some of the trails/obstacles we'll be doing: " Slade Townsend Cave", "Slade Holiday ...

Slade on Sunday May 3rd

I'd like to check out some of the trails prior to the Spring Trail Ride on the 16th. Just wondering if anyone with some experience who knows that area was planning on going out this weekend that I could follow along with. Free anytime Sunday. Thanks, -Mike

Re: My 1995 YJ Rebuild Before/After

This weekend I decided to go ahead and get some rear fenders sooner rather than later... Going with more Metalcloak Overlines, as soon as they have another free shipping coupon.
