Welcome man. What did you have in mind? Did you want to try and put together a Meet and Greet?

The biggest part of that plan is there is no places around here to meet and wheel. Closes spot is the beaches of NC. It sucks but the truth.

A meet and greet at a resturant or a wrenching day. We do have a wrenching day May 6th.

The place that is close to me is out in Pungo. So that is a bit of a drive to Little Creek. But it is what you were looking for in general. I will probably get it for ya in next day or so.

Next Wrench Day is May 6th

I been to a nice place off elbow rd where I had sally goin thru the trails. some are a little tight but theres places where I was able to turn around to head back. not having 4x4 because of the gear difference kinda sucks, but seeing as I can wheel her more than most 4x4's and git thru it is pretty nice, comes with owning a mans automobile!

I need to get this exhaust fixed. It's so bad I almost can't drive it without getting high. Looks like it is loose at the Y-pipe from what I can tell.

just on the frustrated side with my bronco motor starts quickly and easily, but runs like crap, and i am just getting tired of it, it is supposed to be my daily driver, but can't drive it right now. beyond annoyed with the way it runs. just want it to run right.

Unfortunately common sense isn't.
