Post hey guys!
Hi guys my name is Luke im a total gearhead im usually a small block ford / classic mustang guy but this summer I bought a jeep. I now have a 94 jeep yj with a 4banger, soa, dana44's front and rear, 5.13 gearing, arb air lockers front and rear, 35" tires, 5 speed 4 to 1 low range tranfercase gearing, york compressor onboard air... too much to list. I got the jeep in May so im still a rookie but ive been on a few trips with the peninsula low rangers. Ive got a few trips planned this summer with them but would love meet up with you guys and go on a few trips.

here are a few pictures from my first adventure with the "heep" (flopped at hollister) and a trip down to big sur

Welcome. Looks like a really stout rig and you're pretty close to a lot of members on the peninsula. How did you hear about us just out of curiosity?

Welcome to the board. Always nice to have some more vareity around here. Did you right yourself with your own winch when you flopped?

Post Re: hey guys!
thanks guys. and to dan, I tried and tried with my own winch, high lift, straps, and various other tools but only dragged it around on its side. we got real close when we were going from two trees and the rear axel. we got it in a better position than we started then the group in the picture came by and helped push it over. somehthing that is now on my gear list is some strong rope or chain and a comeallong. that would have made things so much easier.

there is a video my girlfriend took of the actual event while she was supposed to be spotting me. (i think a bit more instruction may be needed before next time, it was our first trip) I will try to get that up on youtube soon for your viewing pleasure and my own embarassment.

ive also seen a truck at deanza college sporting the uc4x4 banner

pics of the drivers side posted below.

since then ive hammered the front fender straightish and replaced the flare, i still need a new flare for the rear
