    Someone from Somewhere other than Cal

    New to the jeep club, but long time mud and sand racer. Found this forum through google and so here I are. Main reason I was looking for a forum was just tips from people that know more about this particular vehicle than I do. Have thought about getting into rock crawling, but have no experience with it yet. so there is my short story....

    Well, it just so happens that I'm going to be up there from September 27th through October 3rd... My club is heading up for the Pirates of the Rubicon Cleanup, then we're having our annual run the following week. Two nights at Spider, two nights at Buck Island, one night at Rubicon Springs, then out to South Lake Tahoe for a hot shower and food, fun, cocktails and gambling, not necessarily in that order!

    Would that be a PHD?

    How is the wheeling up in Or

    No formal PHD, more of an honorary kind of thing. As for the wheeling up here it's good, not much in rock crawling to the best of my knowledge but more mud and sand than anyone can hope for. Also alot of formal mud drags, which is where I got my start in wheelin.

    start a new thread in Short Wheelbase > Suspension and ask your question there. you should get alot better response! plus, then other people with the same question will go there to find the answer.

    About an hour south to eugene. I have no doubts in my mind what a stock jeep is capable of, but for where I go
    stock = stuck, so it won't be stock long. Like I said in my first post I am a mud man and that as you all know is a game of clearance and traction. Now 8" clearance is a nice start but just not enough.

    No mods yet not even a week old just a lowly sport with the 3.73 d44 rear and the 4l manual. Skids and rocker protecters soon to be on order along with a set of 4.56 gears front and rear, RE 5.5" long arm kit and some bfg krawler 35's. should make a good start to letting my boy grow up.....
