I like the crawling aspect of Wheeling, not the go fast kind. Where I live I have a sandstone play area (Choke Cherry Canyon or now called the Glade Recreation Area) that really lends it's self to crawling and I find the auto is easier as well. Two of my other 3 Jeep are set up to crawl. My 06 has a RubiCrawler and 4:1, my 57 has a 2.77:1 Klune-V and 4.3 Atlas. The 3rd is stock and is the family car, just 2 of us. And I am only 2hrs from the San Juan Mountains.

I built my shop the year before I retired, then work another year to get some of the things like a lift and better tooling. It is paying off. All though I still end up on the floor some times.

Day 3 and it all out except the pilot bushing and the clutch rod from the pedal.

Now it will be a while, need to pull the motor out of the CJ6 and send it to the shop and while it's gone I am going to go through the transfer case.
