My roommate and I went up there in search of Nugget Hill...previous pics of Nugget Hill I have seen didn't do it justice.

About half way through the day we had the front license plate ripped off:D

But man, Nugget Hill was a blast, glad I got to play on it before it is shut down...

Carnage for the day: Bent and punctured or SS...welcome to DW at speeds greater then 30mph:( I also have a grinding sound when not accelerating and I fear it might be my front diff:mad:

Do you get a lot of rubbing with those 31's?

Just with my 4.5" lift...when I had 2.5" I never rubbed. My adjustable UCA's up front don't go short enough to pull the axle back far enough. Thinking about putting my stock UCA's back on.

Just curious. Have you figured out what the grinding sound is yet?
