I guess you did not hear that the "meanie greenies" had the USFS grade over the toughest spot? Seems the greenies did not like it. So they got the FS to bulldoze it. To bad on the workdays at Uhwharrie, we do the work by hand. The greenies use a bulldozer. Glad to see the YJ-7 worked out. At least Uhwarrie worked as shake down trip before Tellico.

I remember when I first heard of your swap and not using the TJ suspension I was a bit puzzled, but softride springs with a leaf removed and spring over I betting that thing has some flex /wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif

Especially since, this past weekend, he didn't even have the shocks mounted yet.
