  1. Re: Johnny and S Pierson Parks, Sunday 10/24

    Looks like that area is getting dumped on with snow from down here.

    Re: Regear advice - shop recommendations?

    I assumed selectable locker won't work at snow-covered road speeds but TrueTrac will -- the benefit over locker would be traction in wet/snowy conditions on the road?

    Thanks for the lively...

    Re: Regear advice - shop recommendations?

    According to the video Paul linked above with the expedition(?), the TrueTrac can only be 'locked' from a full stop by holding brakes while applying a little gas. Wheel spin seems to disengage the...

    Re: Regear advice - shop recommendations?

    I'm not sure I save much by leaving the front open. Labor is going to cost a lot either way. The cost of the front/rear lockers are really only ~35% of the total cost from the quotes I'm getting.

    Re: MOAB! Last week of October

    I bought a zero degree bag. I should be comfortable with nighttime temps down to ~25-30F. If hotel is the direction we decide to go that probably needs to be booked pretty soon.

    Sweet. Are we camping? I just bought a new cold weather bag I need to try out.

    Re: Regear advice - shop recommendations?

    I feel like to go up a level of trail difficulty, I'd need bigger lift and tires along with lockers. With the new hard top I've further reduced my stomach for body damage, so I don't see this...

    Re: Rivian R1T

    Looks like Kingston to me. I think I saw a Rivian R1T at 144th / Sheridan on Monday.

    Re: Jeep nightmare

    Nice. You've owned more jeeps in 4 years than I've bought pairs of shoes. Keep letting me live vicariously!

    Yes. https://www.quadratec.com/sites/default/files/knowledge_based_articles/gearchart(1).jpg

    Re: Regear advice - shop recommendations?

    I have no plan to rebuild my trac-loc. Still considering trutrac vs e locker. I must misunderstand the truetrac a bit. I thought it operates a bit less like a full auto locker and more like my...

    Re: Regear advice - shop recommendations?

    No, since regearing most likely means a new carrier I didn't see any point trying to rebuild my old LSD. If I can't use it with 4.57 gears, why rebuild? Maybe I've missed something here.

    Re: Regear advice - shop recommendations?

    Thanks James. For trail only use I suspect a selectable locker is more functional than torsion based auto locker. I think I've only been limited by my rear LSD in deep snow once and never on the...

    Either day is the same to me unless there is weather concern one day. Want to plan some other things for the day we aren't wheeling.

    Sounds like fun. Not sure I can take off either of the next two weekends due to kid commitments (next weekend is Halloween, right?).

    Regear advice - shop recommendations?

    The LJ has 3.73 gears in it. I've been satisfied with performance of these gears for on and off road performance despite being under-geared a bit with 33s. Now that we have the trailer, I'd like to...

    There's a better (scenic) route that keeps you on lower speed roads. Check out the route through Masonville (Buckhorn Rd to Stove Prairie Rd). For even more fun don't take Stove Prairie Rd and turn...

    It is a bumpy road. My scale was drastically recalibrated after the Maze district trip in May. I don't think Rollins east is bad at all anymore :-)

    I'm not in for the run, but what about Jenny Creek? Not sure what the snow situation is, but it's a good bouldery route.
