when going over bumps every light on the instrument panel comes on, the windshield wipers start going, the headlights flash and sometime the radio looses power. The lights flash twice for about a second each and then I get the message "no bus" which I am sure is referring to CAN BUS system. I figure its a loose connection somewhere but its still under warranty so I will let them find it.

P.S. I got my FLW tire carrier on and it looks pretty good. You should look into getting one :beer:

1. Buy a Virginia Atlas and Gazetter at walmart or any bookstore ( get the 2000 or newer edition ).

2. Get on scc4x4.com & we will point some trails out to you.

I suggest that all ya'll MD & Northern VA Rigs check out Pott's Mountain Jeep Trail when it opens back up soon ! If you liked Shoe Creek and Stoney run then it's just more real technical crawling and awesome scenery.

I have been through potts probably 10-15 times without any damage. THe bypass and the stacks keep getting worse and worse, or better and better however you look at it. If you take your time and stay off the skinny pedal you can get through there easy. We have gotten people on 31s through there without any body damage and without pulling cable.

I can't make it to crozet this weekend but I try to get up there whenever I can. Like I said before, Potts is alright for the roanoke area but the Forestry service still hasn't officially opened the trail due to so much precipitation this winter.

You can also google for VBJO, they're not just for people that live in VB. They're actually doing two runs on 4/24, ... one group to OBX, and another group to Shoe Creek. Very friendly, family oriented group.

You said moderate trails, which most wouldn't consider these to be, but you're somewhat close the Shoe Creek and Stoney Creek forest service fire roads out in the GWNF, too. Charlottesville area. I'm in Va Beach and the 8-hour round-trip drive to them usually does the trick when I need to get off-road, but don't want to arrange anything more formal like Rausch Creek (which I love) or Crozet (never been).
