Won't be able to make it the 5th. But a bunch of folks are going up the 12th for a cleanup day. I'm gonna try to make it up that day before they close on the 15th.

You guys really missed out not going the Flats. It was awesome!!!

That's the last weekend you will be able to go this year. The trails close on the 15th and don't reopen until April 1st.

I'd like to ride along, but I have exams and projects to deal with until the 17th.

Fuquay Varina here. Was at UNCC for a year...To much beer and wheeling sent me back home. As far as wheeling places up there... There's a trail off mallard creek church road right before you get to Dominion of Mallard Creek. Im sure you can find some folks to go play there. Then if I remember correctly, theres a trail behind Lowes motor speedway, then another back towards harrisburg. Its been too long though to describe on how to get there. Once tires are on my Jeep, I'll be headed that way to have a reunion with my wheeling buddies that are still there. and if the trails we used to ride are still there, will be riding. Your more then welcome to meet with us if you want.

I have been over at RPS but I am done with lowered.

I am done with the lowered driving. I use my Ranger way to much and it sucks. I used drop coils, flip in the rear and drop shocks so I can go back to standard easily to start from again.

I am thinking of a 2" suspension lift with a PA 3" BL. I have a set of 15x8 Soft8's that I am going to use and was thinking of running Super Swamper TrXus STS All Terrain, LT 31.00 x 11.50R15 on them. I will also replace the shocks with Bilstien 5100s or should I go with just the Bilstein HDs?

The question is will this combo work out on my good ol' purple 98' 2.5L?

I just had to replace the balljoints and went ahead and replaced the bearings because there was some play. I know I will probably have to regear so that is no biggy.

I have done nothing but read through the Lifted threads here and I am sold this is the route I want to go and should have gone to begin with.

Got anyone in the Ft Bragg area that wants to help in return for beer and food?

Peace
