    Dual sport ride on Sunday 10/9?

    Weather is supposed to be nice.

    Last Sunday I did Old Flowers Road, 7 Mile, and Sand Creek Road/Pass near Red Feather Lakes. Had a blast. The first half of 7 Mile was far more rocky than I'd like,...

    Re: 2016 Fall Cleanup Run, Sunday Sep 25

    I'm planning on swinging by during the cleanup run on my KLR 650. I'll be the guy in the hi-viz jacket and helmet. If you see me in the ditch, pull me out. :)

    Dual sport ride?

    I've been offline for a while... In the meantime, picked up a Yamaha TW200 and a Kawasaki KLR 650.

    Re: LOCKERS LOCKERS AND MORE LOCKERS

    I'm not against a dream rig. Just want to point out that unless you're skilled, like yourself, building a JK can get real expensive real fast.

    38-inch BFG KM2 are ~$500 each so that's $2500....

    You're talking about an expensive rig here. Ballpark,

    07-12 jk: $10-20k
    wheels/tires $5k
    v8 swap: at least $20k done professionally
    axles: $20k

    That's easily $60k in just the opening...

    Re: tire discussion! big ol' tire thread.

    Exactly. When I ran the Goodyear Duratracs, they were unstoppable in the snow for the first two years. After that (and 30k miles), they were so so.

    Re: tire discussion! big ol' tire thread.

    The SRA is a good street tire. Soft ride, ok traction in rain. Nothing special in snow, but maybe better than an M/T unless the snow was deep.

    Re: tire discussion! big ol' tire thread.

    The Duratracs are an awesome all-around tire. Ran these in my JK for ~50k miles.

    Winter-rated. Great on-road in the snow and rain. Great in all but the harshest off-road conditions. I don't like...

    Teraflex joint rebuild?

    In my seemingly endless battle against JK death wobble, the next thing in line is my control arm joints that have play in them.

    Jeep JK Wrangler rock rails

    Mopar "Enhanced" rock rails. I run these. Same as the Rubicon rails, but with a step/bar. Mine were $600 new, these are $260. Looks like a steal.

    Re: Damage on new JK

    My advice for the JK is do a ton of research and keep it as low as you can. Anything over 3 inches and you end up with other problems (ask me how I know). If I had to do it again, I'd still do 35s...

    Awesome. That's a serious saw. Also looks like serious cash. ~$200?

    I use the Sven Saw which is less serious in both dimensions.
