I'll possibly have 2 winches on my truck by June.. so there will be nothing to worry about.


Who's got a hi-lift though? I just sold mine and i still need to buy a bigger one

I should have a hi-lift buy then. I could go get one right now and put it on my TSC card but I am paying that off first. Then I'll buy one. But I will have one by then.

And Steve, thats a possibility. That only adds like a half hour to my trip. Either there or near Memphis, TN.

How funny would it be if we like set everything up, had spotters, hi-lifts, winches, extinguishers, traffic cones, ropes, all that stuff and set up like a crawling course of like tires stacked up. HAHAHAHA

see,
1) i already have a spare 3rd member.. so i have 2 total
2) that one is 28 spline, i need 31
3) $500 is cheap, i need to buy gears ($150) an install kit (~$150), buy a locker ($250+ or a spool for $100) then pay someone to install them... ($350-500)

soooo a complete 3rd member, locked, geared AND shipped for $500 is a damn good deal. then i'll have 2 spare 3rd members

have you climbed a tire? its not quite as easy as it looks lol. and you can smash someones fender up pretty easily.

i didn't really give a **** about my fender and my buddy in his yoda scuffed it up a little, granted he backed up on the tire so he couldn't steer away. but steering room is still hard to come by



...just my $.02

i still have a 15x10 AR wheel in the 5x4.5" variety, and a 35x1250-15 MTZ laying around, we could put a 35 on one corner of the jeep and that would pull you right on up

Alright folks, count me as a definate. My plans to go to Florida th first week of June (the reason i said I was a maybe) fell through due to some unfortunate circumstances out of me and my friends who were hosting's control. Also, since I'm not selling my truck now... well that also speaks for itself!

So, count me in as a for sure!

Branson MO get ready for some Colorado folk!

Good point. Matt does only mall crawl. He never takes his truck offroad. Guess he has me beat.
