    Where are all the Virginia Explorers??

    Doubt I'm still a member but I can tell you that they are a great bunch. They have a meeting/event about every month and are on private land. Most people have full-sized rigs but I had a blast with my stock Zuk. Miss those guys.

    You smoke cigarettes?

    Congrats!!!!!!! Still going well? I started a new job that doesn't allow me to smoke at work. That's cut me down w/o a big deal. Now I just need to work on the rest of the day.

    bad clunk in drivetrain, checked all obvious causes.....help

    Personally I'd just go for the SAS. You have the rear locker for the OBX, air down as far as you need to and just be smart. (ideally you aren't going along) Good luck.

    bad clunk in drivetrain, checked all obvious causes.....help

    What type of acceleration? Normal, or to to floor? Do you have a 2WD option, if not and you don't want to do the brown wire mod, just take off the front d-shaft and see if the problem continues. I stripped the splines out of my front d-shaft twice and never realized it. Is it just one...

    Where are all the Virginia Explorers??

    Not to mention an Explorer is kinda big for some of the trails around here unless you want to leave a trail of body parts to make sure you can make it back. Don't get me know I loved my X, but the amount of money to make it a great wheeler was too much for me, plus I was always nervous to...

    Haven't set a date, but you'd love the wheel'n out here. Looks like Saturday http://cv4wa.com/jax_calendar/jax_calendar.php?language=english Not to answer to Bobby, especially since he's darn near online more than me now, but Bobby traded in his rig for a Harley so he might not be...

    The weather has been so good we've been spending too much time working outside. I have some pictures online of a few of the projects and the place prior to us moving in on my website. I'll shoot you an email when we get updated pics online. You coming to the house warming party?

    Where are all the Virginia Explorers??

    Best group to get involved with is the Central Virginia 4 wheel association in/around Hurt, VA. Those guys are great. Or, buy a diesel F250 and move to the West Coast! Speaking of witch... JOSH! it's almost been a year!

    How many miles?

    '97 XLT Tranny went at 180k on the ODO, estimated 200k with the adjustment for tire size. Ran 33s with stock 3.73s since 96k. Ran Amsoil with a K&N oil filter for most of the miles.

    Where are all the Virginia Explorers??

    For what it's worth This weekend the CV4WA is having a benefit ride for someone. Prices are cheap... Really cheap. If you can afford the gas to come out there you can afford to ride. I KNOW it's under $20/vehicle. I'm leaving Richmond Friday night and camping 'til Sunday. I won't be...

    Where are all the Virginia Explorers??

    Feb 9 2008 - CV4WA Our normal club meeting is Saturday the 9th, I'm sure there will be some wheeling, it's not an event and if nothing else, I'll be there and can walk you through the trails. There is a cost for wheeling there I'd have to check what it is. You can take a stock vehicle (my Zuk...

    Where are all the Virginia Explorers??

    Well the zuk is currently naked, but axles are purchased and I think I've decided on the motor. Need to make sure the motor/tranny will fit and decide on suspension and cage options. If nothing else I should be able to throw on a SPOA kit on my black Zuk and get by with that if need be. It's...

    Where are all the Virginia Explorers??

    Let's set a date. Hopefully the Zuk'll be ready by spring. Do you know what the terrain is like at Uwharrie? I plan to run the Uwharrie Zuk event in October, but wouldn't turn down a weekend to run that in Spring. Memorial Day weekend might be a busy but fun weekend plus give an extra day...

    Where are all the Virginia Explorers??

    Ok, I forgot about that trip. That's the one I took the X on instead of the Zuk. I guess I didn't realize where it was.... I'm was just a follower back then... That and I don't have pictures of it, so I tend to forget... BTW - We missed you and Stacey at the event in August. I think there...

    Crabtree falls is another spot that a stocker can make it through and has camping. Depending on your level and your buddies level I would suggest going with someone with some experience. Tons of great people, well known trails for all abilities, people to help if you get stuck or break down...

    I took 130+ photos but have not uploaded them yet. Ran out of film (SD memory) and couldn't find my spare. We also have some video but I have no idea of when I'll get to that.

    I'm heading up after work on Friday, camping Friday and Saturday night. Anyone wanna help do a Head gasket or brakes on a Zuk is MORE than welcome. Anyone that just wants to camp and enjoy the weekend is welcome too

    Where are all the Virginia Explorers??

    How 'bout Saturday? Lunch at 1:00. wheel'n all day get as muddy as you like. Did you guys hear that Crozet is trying to become members only. You'd pay $100/year and then $25/day or $40/wknd. There are some benefits to it however. I wouldn't consider it unless you NEED hard-core rocks.

    About 15 minutes East of Altavista. Altavista is about 20 mins South of Lynchburg. On Moons Road. Directions from Route 29 Business in Altavista. Head East on Pittsylvania Ave and follow it through it's many name changes. When you come to a sharp right turn (near a church) the road will...

    I completely understand that it's a long drive for you Tidewater folks, but unfortunately I have yet to find anything better/closer, and believe me I'm trying. Donald, it looks like you'd be about 3hrs and 45mins away from the Central VA 4 wheeler's club land. I know there are hotels/motels...

    Yes. For anyone interested, I always camp there Friday and/or Saturday night. No charge for camping.

    August 18th is the next club event however we ride every 2nd Saturday of the month. Bobby would have to let you know the cost for non-members.

    Where are all the Virginia Explorers??

    Seems to be just you and I Bobby. I'd vote for Crozet but the Zuk isn't really all that capable unless you wanna try and throw on the SPOA kit on the black on and see if we can find a set of tires. The guys in the beach seem to only hit construction places. I'd be up for the zuk fest in...

    Where are all the Virginia Explorers??

    Every second Saturday the Central 4WD club meets. Private club controlled land, great people, nearly anything you could ask for... 'cept rocks. Camping is free, but primative, unless you consider a porta potty non-primative?? See above Is it legal / public wheeling? Is this legal...
