I'm out. Wifey is hosting an Epicure party on Sunday afternoon & I'm left tending to the kids.

Also, what is up with kijiji people? Those studded winter tires 1/2 worn were bare in the centre and scalloped beyond belief on the edges. He was asking $350 for the set and they are worth $0. Luckly they were local so I didn't travel any distance, but damn.

It would have to be the second one, he's too worried he'll damage his Jeep on the trails. But I do like the idea of stea...borrowing the axle haha.

Speaking of axles, anyone know where I can find a front axle shaft for a D30 that would fit my '07 JK thats not crazy in price and stronger than the **** stock parts?

You think my rig can handle bump n grind without too much bumping n grinding?

Where is it located?

Thanks.

If you are planning future mods and bigger tires etc... Just bite the bullet and buy RCVs. Big $$$ up front, but you can put them in and just forget them. No worries. Spend the $$$ once and that's that, rather than pissing away the same amount over time. The RCVs will allow you a 35" tire with no worries.

If you are part of the auto club go in and check with Jason there, he can order tires through their supplier and they are same day I do believe, but definitely agree with Len on the RCV's they save you money in the long run.

37" is big rubber on a D30, no matter what you got for axles. You planning lockers too? Peck's in Digby is the local contact. Call Jason.

Really not worth while on a d30 if you put rcv's and locker in and 37s you will need to re gear and next thing to go is snapping pinion/gears from what i hear really don't think a d30 is any good past a 35

By the time these tires wear down I'm hoping to have a D44 in the front and rear eventually haha. But the CV axles sound like a smart go

meet at Wendys/Tims for 10 9am Head to the trail for 11 10

 

Just want to confirm that this is the plan as I may not be able to roll in there until 0930 or maybe 0945 (at the latest). So, heading out at 10 would be awesome!
