Ended up going with an Oliver’s out of WS for the front shaft per @chevymitchell ’s recommendation. Cheapest custom 1310 shaft I found, and got to keep it semi local.

Randomly stumbled on this thread, figured I'd say hi. Currently based in Texas, but moving out to ~Asheville area in the next 3-6 months (leaning toward Weaverville area). Tired of the Sea of Shingles taking over Texas and wanting to get lost in the woods.

Really pumped to be able to explore some of the forest roads out there.

Clyde, Waynesville, Boone and Blowing Rock are all places of pure beauty out there. Asheville is a lotta bit hippy tree hugger commie land, but if that's your thing go for it :)

Yeah, Boone is on the list but not finding a ton out there in our budget. Unfortunately work+kids means I can't be too far out in the boonies, but I definitely don't want to be in a city, and do want to be as close to the national forests as possible. Finding quite a bit just north of Weaverville, Mars Hill, Marshall area.

Less "in" Asheville and more like "30-45 min outside of Asheville" if that makes sense.

I'd heard that west of Asheville gets a bit noxious due to the paper mill?

Yeah my in-laws lived in Clyde/Waynesville and at certain times of the year it could get a little stinky.

Finally getting some real seat time in on the YJ with the JL having been sold. This thing is just a monster on the rocks. Came within about 1" of flopping on my lid in this pic, def a lot of puckering going on.
