Hey Everyone!

I'm Jason from Raleigh -- just joined now that my '79 CJ7 project is finally out of the garage and I can hit some trails! Swapped in a 6.0L LQ4 out of a 2002 Yukon Denali last summer to replace a worn out 258, and finally got most of the kinks worked out over the past couple months. It's been so much fun actually driving her and not wrenching. I'm not sure how long the stock CJ7 axles will hold up to my 35s though..so let me know if you've got a line on a good 14-bolt! :)

I'd like to put a lift on it but I think right now buying a house/property is more important. I also have a Can-Am Outlander 800R XT

I'm new around here and looking for fun! Someone show me where all the sweet spots are.

Welcome to web wheeling!

Don't worry, last I checked we didn't have any black helicopters heading for CLT.

I'm with you on the book of faces. I go on there to check professional content and wish people happy birthday.

Hello everyone. I joined this forum to get some more info on a jeep I just purchased. 2013 Rubicon with lots of custom mods. I contacted Buckeye Performance Inc and was given a link to the various mods done to this jeep by Jason Watson. I would love to see more pics and get more info on the jeep. My cousin is the managing partner of a dealership in Florence, SC. This jeep was at their sister dealership in NC. I work for the Forest Service in Arizona and had been searching for a jeep of this caliber for some time. Unfortunately, people here do not take care of their shit. The jeeps are all expensive, with high miles and not cared for. I saw this on my cousins website and new it was the perfect jeep for me!! I called, transferred the monies and had it shipped to me in Phoenix. Im absolutely in love with this thing and am super eager to hear about its history. So... does anyone recognize it? Thank you!!

Hello NC4x4! New member. I am in the Piedmont Triad area and want to get on some trails. I live about 40 minutes from URE and a couple hours from Pisgah. I've owned Wranglers in the past (just stock) and recently got a Tacoma OR. I'd like to try to easy trails first and really looking for some areas to get my bearings. Any suggestions appreciated!

I was looking at Brown Mountain trail 1 and 8 but not sure if there's something closer to me as it's all new to me. Take care.

Welcome to NC4x4 a great place to get all kinds of information. If you are "new" and have a stock Tacoma, first place I would go to is URE. There are plenty of trails there to cut your teeth on. There are places that can bite you if you aren't paying attention too. Especially in a stock rig. Two trails to stay off if you aren't looking for body damage are Daniel and Dickie Bell. Another that may or may not be over your comfort is Dutch John. Really depends what you are comfortable with. Realistically you may be able to run them but it is all about comfort and if you are willing to bear some scratches or dents or worse on your ride. No scars no proof!:driver:

Brown Mt is open to full size rigs but mostly motorcycles and ATV's go there.

Just watch the forums and maybe post when you are able to go. Odds are someone from here will be going. Also there are always people at Eldorado outpost on 109 where you can get a pass that you might just ask to join.

I'm not "new" to the forum persay but I've never been active other than a couple of buying/selling threads, so I figured this was a good place to start. Checking in from Person County... I'm attaching a slightly old photo of my project, I just got it running and driving a couple of weeks ago. It started life as a 1942 GPW but is now a "Heinz 57" flat fender. Too many details to list here but the highlights are that it sits on 32x9.5 MTRs with Dana 30 front, 44 rear. 5.38 gears with Auburn limited slip rear. Alcan springs. '93 Mustang 2.3 with Stinger PimpX ECU, mated to the old T-90 (with Advance Adapter OD) and D18 via a home-made bellhousing. Saginaw manual steering box. 4-wheel manual discs. Mastercraft Rubicon seats, soon to be mounted to a cage with 4-point harnesses.
For those with InstaGarbage, I have a page with quite a few build photos going back to the start, and some more recent photos and videos. @willys2point3.
