^^ Thanks. Trying to be all around complete.

Right now she is a mall crawler. I don't belong to any 4x clubs/groups so finding some public, or private w/ rights, land is difficult. Never been truly offroading so that's an issue also.

I've got the beach however.

Holy shat...how did you convince the dealer to give you all that? Or am i just reading this wrong...
I had equity in the Raptor, financed a little more than the JK was worth. Dealer performed the labor, something falls off...catches one fire...whatever...it's going back. Had a bad experience with a lift in the past & the problem was never resolved, saw it in my best interest for the dealer to do the work.

Now that it's over, they won't be doing any more upgrades/mods to it.

Still waiting on my argent Pintlers from them....

Just ordered the following parts from River City Offroad:

Nitro D44 30-spline Axle (these have the Compass U-joints :) )
Nitro Axle Sleeves

Thanks Marcus

I'll take you to Uwharrie any time you want to go. Check the regional forum for events and rides. It would definitely have to be a weekend trip from where you're at.

Nice mango, haven't seen it around town yet. Neuwirth, I assume, built your rig?

I am also in the Ilm/Leland area.

Thanks fellas. Can't wait to get the winch and the driveline upgraded so I can get some wheeling on.

Anyone interested in some MOPAR Enhanced Rock Rails? I need to replace them...on full flex the rear tire will hit or come within 1/16" of the rail end. The rails cannot be cut due to their design. Rails are ~ 2 weeks old.
