Good meeting you last night, here is the website for the other forum

norcaljeepers.co

sign up and check the trip and trail section, the Rubicon trip should be the first on there. Looks like the last week or so at least half will drop but thats with any run. Will still have a good turn out.
Check the description and 'requirements' on that thread. I say in the worst case scenario you can just walk the trail which I'm sure some will do anyways to take pictures and video.

Medical retirement due to injury.

I would buy then and put them in, carry your old ones as spares. The shafts like I said are easy to change.. BUT when I say easy it means with your jack and all your tools available, and times. You don't want to find out you don't have the right socket or things are stuck when on the trail and you got people waiting for you. I highly recommend changing the shafts up front at home that way you know how things go on and off, once your wheeling you will notice you have that much more confidence things wont break on you. If you ever need a hand swapping those out or other mods post up on the Norcal/bay area group I check that daily.
Right now for my bumper/tire carrier I'm building something similar to poison spyder rear stinger. Check out their website and look at their stinger, I only ordered the lower plate from them, the rest I will build on my own.

It says your running the stock D30 up front with 35's.? I hope your carry spare shafts w you. Get some chromoly shafts up front they are easy to install and provide greater strength. I see you are in Alamo so we live close, swing by the shop sometime or let us know if you need a hand with something.

Sorry man I sold it last week on CL. It was a wildbuilt bumper and did good while it lasted. I will say that most aftermarket bumpers will rattle so you have to modify it not to. At least thats true w the popular cheaper carriers (smittybuilt). I ended up changing the latch system to make it rattle free. When you buy one go lightweight and from someone like poison spyder/savvy/poly performance. That's just my opinion, w the aluminum center skid, gas tank skid, and PS lower plate for bumper my suspension is not sagging in the rear.

Thank you. It is my daily driver and only vehicle.

Bump stops are used to limit the up travel in your suspension. So, if you have 4 inches of space between the top of your tire ant the bottom of your fender then you need to set up your bumpstops to only allow about 3.5 inches of up travel. You can do this by adding spacers to your existing bumpstops, or by building completely custom units.

Any added weight will make a difference in performance but in this case, not a significant one. For the total added weight of the bumper and winch you may want to add a 3/4" to 1" polyurethane spacer on top of your front springs to compensate for the weight on the front springs.

Factory mount. The piece came with the winch.

Tough call.

The gears will make it feel 100 times better, but I wouldn't do gears unless you have lockers going in too. It's the same labor and you wil kick yourself for having to pay twice.

The bumpers (I love the PSC Brawler/Stinger) will make it look sharp and you see it in all of your photos and every time you walk up to it on the trail in the parking lot. If you are going to eventually do both, I would do the cosmetic stuff first. Just my opinion though.

The M8000 and VR8000 are both fine quality winches. The new VR8000 is a lighter duty winch than the M8000 is but it would be fine for a typical offroader's needs. The VR8000 has a shorter duty cycle which is the main difference. That just means it wouldn't be good for repeated winching sessions in a row.

I love the military. I should be getting my commission in the Army come december. Its good to get in the military. It teaches you materials you will not learn anywhere else. What you learn in the armed forces you will never forget. People will always look to you as leader. Once you get in, you will either love it or hate it. Just make sure the MOS you choose is the MOS you want. You can always change it later if you request it but its nice to pick the one you want. Get your commission as well. It may seem cool to be enlisted and I would have loved to stay enlisted but the pay and respect is too great. You will regret it later on in life if you don't do it. If you have any questions just email me. christopher.lea@mnsu.edu
