    Hey Eric, is this still going to happen? We are thinking about coming up for it, but hear that you usually have to reserve a camping spot 6 months or more in advance. Before I get too crazy digging into it, I just want to make sure it is still happening. Thanks! Jeff

    Dana 30 Knuckle Question - Difference between 81 and 82-85?

    Thanks Dave! I will probably focus on getting these clean and painted and ready for swap and then let them sit until fall. Once I realized all I was going to swap around I figure my Jeep will be out of commission for a few weeks at least. I'm just getting to drive it for the season so I'm...

    Dana 30 Knuckle Question - Difference between 81 and 82-85?

    Hey guys, I have a set of "new" wide track axles I am rebuilding for my 81 Scrambler. These are from an 84 CJ and have 1 piece shafts but have the same 2.72 ratio as my current narrow track axles. The rear is overall in really good shape, just needed some paint and I am going to move my disk...

    Axle Rebuild?

    Thank you guys for the feedback. I guess I'll break out the elbow grease and get started. Question: What type of ball joint removal kits have worked for you? Did you need something specific or did a rental kit from the auto parts store work OK? Growing up I used a C-clamp and an old...

    Axle Rebuild?

    Hey guys, when you bought some axles off someone else, did you do a full rebuild of the axle? Such as new ball joints and bearings and all that? I've got some new wide-track axles and I bought all the stuff to rebuild them but am now wondering if I'm not over doing it. I can see repacking /...

    RIP Jessie-

    I am really sorry to hear about your Jessie. It is so hard that they live such a short time. I know it is hard and there is just about no comfort that I can provide other than I understand and wish you to find comfort rather than sadness where possible. Our two Boxers passed away a few years...

    Do we need to sign up somewhere? I am planning on coming up there and don't want to miss because of missing the sign up.

    Bestop Length?

    Darn, maybe I can put a heater in the bed and a tarp over it and see if I can heat it up. I don't have a garage to use. Ugh. Thank you for your feedback, it really does help.

    Bestop Length?

    Hey guys, I bought a brand new Bestop top, 54608-15, and after getting all of the hardware installed I went to put the top on and it seems really really short. Yes, it is 47 degrees out, but I JUST took it out of the 72 degree house and put in place in literally 5 minutes. I measured my old...

    A few questions, as I might actually get to make this one! 1) I only have 32's and no winch. Will there be trails that I will be able to drive on? 2) My 8 (almost 9 by then) year old might want to come to this. Is this "kid appropriate"? I am more worried about him being bored, car nut or...

    An update, could use some prayers.

    Hey Randy, I am really sorry to hear about your mom. I will certainly keep you and your family in my prayers. My parents have recently moved near me and my dad is not doing well. It is jarring to find your parents, who have been your solid support since forever suddenly need you to be solid...

    Hard Top - Do you use it?

    Hey folks, I am waffling between buying a soft top or a hard top. I am not a fan of the Best Top top, as I like the more "safari" look of the K-Line top in the summer. However, currently I plan on installing a more "family style" cage that is similar to Mr. Sunnyshine's so I can run a canvas...
