    I live about three hours away, but if you wanted my help and could offer me a place to sleep I would be more than happy to go help you one weekend. My e-mail is in my profile.

    Dude get that thing jacked up and ready for some abuse at Uwharrie. If you ask 87BrnRsd's brother nicely maybe you can get enrolled in the Elliot School of Driving. :grin: :xmas:

    We went to Uwharrie with Harrison and Elliot. At kodak Elliot was taking the bypass when a tree got hungry and ate the whole side of Elliots K5. :xmas: Then after we pulled him to the top the small sharp rocks ate a rear tire.

    I live in Winston-Salem, but haven't done what you would call a real lift. I put 4" lift blocks under the rear of my truck and that's it. I've been a GearHead for about 30 years though so I might be helpful even though I haven't done a real lift (yet)...

    I'm also new to the area though and would be glad to meet some folks to go wheeling with. I know a couple of great guys that live near Uwharrie and I've been down there once already since we moved here. I have a 4.5 year old son who loves to go too.
