finding a 15" tire in mud terrain or all terrain is near impossible...just wondering if any of you guys had some tires laying around...thanks...

when do you guys wanna ride again ???..before christmas or next year early months...???

Unfortunately I'm going to continue being real busy through November. I'm good for January again. I want to hit hardrock and Ocala at least once if not more before I have to bring the bronco north.

yes...i am ashamed to have gotten that mad at her...but she is running like a tornado now...

i wanted to add that anyone that was at Hardrock should check their upper shock grommets and insulators....mine were torn to hell and i had the hard urethane rubber "energy" stuff on there...

hell of a loud bell. *clack clack clack grrrrrrrrrr...*

but i did learn fro mthat, that even tho a lockout looks ok, it can still be stripped out. couple weeks ago my friend blew a drivesahft and said he blew his front axle also. turned out the lockout was stripped. took it out and it looked brand new but swapped a new one in and he was driving again

I think it only takes a tiny bit of wear and some lubrication to make em slip. When you think about it that's a shitload of force being applied to a relatively small amount of surface, the slightest angle on those teeth and they're gonna pop out.
