    Is replacing bad rear driveshaft u-joints urgent?

    If you do replace you could end up just pulling them and using as trail spares for the future

    East coast vs West coast wheeling

    I've experienced that following guys on full width one ton axles. I was worried about the upcoming obstacle only to not touch either side. Then the opposite watching a group full of Jks go downhill over a v notch using every inch they had thinking to myself my axle isn't as wide and...

    East coast vs West coast wheeling

    Are there any trails you can’t do at hawk pride or windrock? I watch trail videos of the most difficult trails at either of these parks but no one is on 35s

    East coast vs West coast wheeling

    This is pretty much why I started the thread. I heard something alluding to east vs west. If that isn’t the case and it’s just wheel speed then the only difference is the gas pedal. The other 10% of trails that are top difficulty. Well I’m not that concerned with right now because I don’t have...

    East coast vs West coast wheeling

    Ok, back to the rookie view point. I don’t see anything going wrong with any of the videos. I can’t tell if the question being asked is “what do you see wrong?” As in there isn’t anything wrong or there is something that the uneducated guys can’t see.

    East coast vs West coast wheeling

    I get it but I’d still like to hear it. Even when you get people pushing back and disagreeing with you. The silent jeepers are still reading and trying to learn we just can’t jump in and give much helpful input.

    East coast vs West coast wheeling

    i may be wrong but I feel like driving style is more of a function of the environment. I think the second jeep could have done exactly the same thing as the first in that location.

    East coast vs West coast wheeling

    I just don't drive my jeep that fast. I enjoy driving around town with the doors and top off and driving offroad with it. I'm not against the ability to do it I just don't plan on doing much of it. I've gone 80 in this jeep no problem but I'm not as comfortable with it compared to a normal car...

    East coast vs West coast wheeling

    Hawk pride was my first offroad experience when I bought this jeep. A group around here is going tomorrow but I couldn't make it. I still need to go to windrock with this jeep and back to hawk pride. A local Nashville group likes to go to blue holler pretty often and that's a good park for...

    East coast vs West coast wheeling

    This isn't my daily so I don't need it to go 70. I can right now but future plans won't be limited because I want to drive on the interstate. I try to trailer it if possible.

    East coast vs West coast wheeling

    Yeah, I'd rather have a jack of all trades and not a master of one. Excluding high speed. I don't plan on competing or anything like that. It's funny you said PNW because I thought that as well (isn't that more like the spots I go around here versus JV)

    04’ JMT’s Twin Teenagers Build

    Not that this will solve the problem but I've seen someone with a 4.0 have overheating problems fixed by using another jeeps cap. Since you have 3 jeeps that could be an easy experiment.

    East coast vs West coast wheeling

    I also wonder, lets assume that the ideal build and geometry is set to be exactly the same for everyone. I usually like to optimize my projects or the things I purchase but there is diminished returns that usually keeps me from purchasing the ideal product. I always wonder with these builds...

    East coast vs West coast wheeling

    Yeah, I'm not too concerned with the gas skid, I've seen a genright tank for sale for stretched wheelbase that would solve the problem but I always wonder how much more those hang down versus stock. The other jeeps are TJ or older, heavily modified. I just noticed last time offroad that my...

    East coast vs West coast wheeling

    It isn't set up perfect in the back because the rear axle will hit the gas tank skid. I know I'm at the limit sort of speak before things start to get really expensive (37"+ tires and modifications for that) It's hard not to dream bigger when one group I wheel with is 40"+ on every rig. I...

    East coast vs West coast wheeling

    So if I'm focused on slow rock crawling there isn't much difference in build? I don't plan on sand dunes or going mudding. Although sometimes it ends up in a lot of mud, just not a big mud hole in the middle of some field.

    East coast vs West coast wheeling

    I'm not really trying to start a Savvy vs metalcloak type of thread. I just know as someone with limited experience with offroading jeeps and mechanical experience it's kind of annoying to see a discussion about suspension geometry fall into a pissing contest when I really do want to know the...

    East coast vs West coast wheeling

    I'm still pretty early on in my Jeep offroad life so I haven't spent a ton of time researching every topic. One thing that comes up is east vs west coast wheeling. Is it just dry/rocky wheeling vs wet/mud/sometimes rocky wheeling? When I hear a jeep needs to be built for one or the other...

    Got tagged in the parking lot today

    I've wondered about this a lot. So they said replace it with a dana 35 and you are good?

    A lot of these assumptions are based on what state you have coverage since car insurance is state regulated. I think in Kentucky it was 75% while I lived there.
