Also, I have an open seat if anybody in Indy wants to ride along. The guy that was supposed to come with me is unable to come now. If anyone is interested let me know.

No real pics. We had a bad day. One of the XJ's we were with broke rear control arms which jammed the rear driven shaft into the t-case. After we got the drive shaft out so he could drive in FWD, he learned that the front ring and pinion or front locker was shot or both. Couldn't drive out, we had to tow it back to his trailer.

As we headed out to try to catch up with a group on the green trail, going down one of the hills we heard a loud pop. Believe to be a front ring/pinion. Had to limp back to pk lot. Luckily the first guy was just leaving the pk lot when we called and was able to catch a ride back to Indy to get a trailer to head back to get the XJ I was in.

Needless to say my 7yo was very bored that day, spent the first hour working on one, then the next hour unloading our stuff into another vehicle to drive home.
