Ball Joints are labeled for Upper and Lower and the orientation of them is important for the grease fitting access.

Thanks Shawn. Having the peace-of-mind knowing the job is done right makes the drive from Charlotte worth it. The Teraflex ball joints look like the real deal..:).

my negative battery cable will not tighten down on the post to save my life. What a shitty design. Anyone else have this problem?
Yep... snapped the "bolt" right off of mine... :headbang:

Running the Rubicon Trail June 15th if anyone is interested. It's just a 10 hour drive from our house. If it sounds like I'm bragging... it's because I am. Mic Drop.

Topless Day: hope to see lots of topless jeeps
We Plan on heading to Ft. Fisher this Saturday, 5/21, around noon, and setting up in front of the first cut off after the entrance/Zeke’s Island Reserve. Gonna be 83° and sunny! Top will be off to celebrate National Go Topless day! Although our get together isn’t a fundraiser, please consider donating to one. There are a lot of good causes out there.

I sure do hope they explain what Go Topless Day means to the peeps in FV. You're liable to get lots of boobs and a few teeth. Disclaimer: I used to live in FV
I don’t know about you but I prefer when the boobs come with teeth… not into meth heads :giggle:

I don't live there but go to the area often. It has changed a ton in the last 5 to 7 years for sure. But in certain areas you still will see a little of both happening. :CWL:

Glad to see a lively NC thread here!

Quick question for those of you that've made it to Uwharrie this season - how's Wolf's Den doing with the rutting? By the end of last season Wolf's Den was so slopped out that my JKR couldn't make the hill climb after that sharp left due to being on KO2s (holdover from when it was a DD, 37s are expensive to replace lol, MTs only for the JL, third vehicles are nice). Last couple times we were there we had lines of people being recovered - never thought I'd see that on Wolf's Den, but here we are, what a world.

Anyway, my JK is gone and I'm in a stock JLR on MTs, but with the lower diff-to-ground clearance I'm trying to figure out what to expect this season since we usually run Wolf's Den as a warmup trail. Never thought in a stock Jeep I'd be more worried about Wolf's Den than Dickey Bell lmao. I'm not sure how much work they've been getting in during the off season due to all the craziness with covid and supply chain stuff, but hoping one of y'all has run it recently.
