NC4x4

Last weekend myself and a few buddies loaded up and headed to Windrock for the sole purpose of doing something stupid, wheeling the Walden's Ridge trail. What is Walden' Ridge you ask? Well, it is a ridge line trail on the top of a mountain near trail 75. There are drop offs easily reaching 500+' on each side. This is definitely not a trail for the faint of heart!

Our group consisted of @woodrow, @EdJonesJeeper, @McCracken, an XJ on 37s, another TJ on 35s, a YJ on 37s and myself. We all completed the trail with the SWB Jeeps getting the assistance of a winch down the final drop (which is probably 5-6' tall), Except for @EdJonesJeeper because he is the man.

Luckily for me, my brake master cylinder decided to crap out on me after winching the red TJ down the last rock. My decent was a bit nerve racking, but I made it.

The rest of the trail is a series of switchbacks and ledges with a scenic decent down the mountain.

On to the pics!

One man's six year old thread about a faulty solenoid suddenly uncorks a flood of excellent tech information on Warn's venerable M8274 family of winches. Contactor upgrades, motor replacements, parts diagrams, and (of course) a Gigglepin reference or two. Plus, how to properly troubleshoot a solenoid. If you're into that sort of thing.
Monday night, we moved a whole bunch of stuff around on the NC4x4 server. We have redirected most of the old locations to the new locations, but it is possible that you may have some links that aren't working anymore.

If you see something that isn't working like you think it should, please let us know.
Let the 12 Days of NC4x4 begin! The first winner will be drawn tonight at 9pm. Check back every night between now and Christmas to see if you've won.
This will be the FIFTH annual 12 Days of NC4x4 giveaway! As always, we appreciate our members and vendors and want to give something back for your support and for making the board the great place that it is.

This is the entry thread for the 12 Days of NC4x4.

Starting on Saturday, December 13, at approximately 9pm, and continuing each day until Christmas Eve, we'll pick one entry from this thread as the day's winner. We'll announce the winner and the prize in a separate thread.

We're not going to do it quite like the song, but each day's prize will be bigger and better than what came before.

I'd like to remind everyone that our supporting Vendors are instrumental in pulling this off. If you're shopping for 4x4-related gifts or making your wish list, be sure to consider shopping with our amazing vendors! Click here to register!...
