    Maybe. Dunno though. I noticed today that one of me CV axles is loose in the hub. I'm hoping it's just a c-clip popped off. I don't think it's broke because it wasn't acting like only one wheel was pulling, but even if it is, they are lifetime warrantied. It's just a good bit of work to change it.

    I'd really like to do Hardrock again, but that $25 admission is pretty brutal on top of the full+ tank of gas. But, honestly, Hardrock/B-pit would be a lot more interesting than ONF looks.

    I'll keep an eye on this thread for when things solidify.

    Closest you'll come to rock crawling in FL that I'm aware of. Never been to B-pit though. When I went we did Hardrock and A-pit, but last I heard A-pit is closed. I definitely want to try it again now that I'm better equipped. :cool:

    There's probably gonna be jeeps out there with us as well and this would be a good chance to test out that high clearance rear bumper

    I like hardrock there's two hills there I tried and couldn't make it up so i ended up getting pulled up the one but I was just told they recently just changed up there trails so they might be a little more challenging also Chris was out there a couple of weeks ago and said it was pretty wet and slippery

    Rgr that. And now I'm a bit more confident with this sort of wheeling so it should be even more fun.

    Just let me know a solid date and I'll see what I can do.

    Okay. I'll see what I can do. Got some family stuff going on that may not allow me to wander that far from home. Not sure right now. I'll sub to the other thread and up my name on the list if it turns out I can go.
