    If it is wet there are a lot of slick spots, careful riding solo

    According to their pics on site I don't know if I'm capable on those trails, haha. I gotta get with Brian soon to double check my UCAs and make sure they are greased well and recheck my front diff fluid from when we changed my CVs. Lol, its been far too long since I engaged 4WD :anonymous:

    there are trails of all difficulties. 12/1 at Chocco may be good for you to try out as well, that place has everything and bypasses too.

    you're always more than welcome to hop in the truck with me if you aren't wanting to do something in yours.

    I will try anything as long as I have a spotter and someone to reassure they think I can make it, haha. However, riding along sounds pretty solid to me as well, haha

    I engage my 4wd maybe once or twice a week when I'm headed home on the long straight. Let's me sling the oil around for about .5 miles at 40 mph.. should be good to go right? lol

    i gotta remember to engage my lockers every now and then, they do still mist some, and it looks like a lot when it mists, but it's really only like a small drop.

    I use to engage mine once every month or so but its been quite a while since I've even done that. With the baby, my everyday thoughts differ from what they use to.

    i emailed them and they said it wasn't a problem and somewhat common, as long as it's just a little bit I'll let it ride till I eventually do something such as gears or till I replace oil anyways.

    they did say the solution was to use them more, and that it happens when orings dry. It may or may not be accurate and just best guess. I'm not going to argue since it's so minor, more of an inconvenience around the compressor than anything.

    They told me the same thing until mine got really bad. Then they told me to send it back and they would send me the new version.

    ECGS, they told me ARB had a problem that they addressed in the updated locker. I did ask what the problem was but they didn't want to go into details.

    Tepui is doing 20% off for Black Friday, but the best deal I've seen so far, considering people sell their smittybilt tents used for around 700, 4WP is doing 20% Smittybilt products:

    https://www.4wheelparts.com/p/smittybilt-overlander-roof-top-tent-2783/_/R-DSBP-2783

    I see you asked somewhat local, and it claims you can have it next day shipped to store, so thats considered local to me lol
