Hello Everyone, Interested in Joining
« on: March 31, 2017, 07:39:15 AM »
Hello everyone, my name is Joe. I'm from Derby, a small town right next to New Haven, CT. I have a 98 wrangler, 4 cylinder, 4inch clayton 4 link lift in the rear with a Ford 8.8 and just a regular rough country short arm lift up front. I've been to Rausch Creek a few times with my jeep but finally being of age I would love to get into an organized club and get to some places around here. Slowly building her up to be a worthy rock crawler. I'll be a fresh out of college graduate come May so I am greatly looking forward to meeting the members of the club at a M&G event in early summer.

Welcome Joe. Nice rig. Are you running a super 88 kit in the 8.8?

No, its just a stock axle right now. After I get a truck to haul it I want to put some money into the front axle and suspension.

Cool. I'm running a stock 8.8 in my YJ, but I was thinking of the super 88 kit.

And the tires have been great! They've been getting a lot of wear and slashes on the sides of them though so I might be looking to get a new set this year. Also think its time I return the Swirley Chrome Goodness........ Looking to have 5 matching rims.

I just find it too much of a pain to get a socket on the nuts with those holes in the rim being deep
