EDIT:oops... Doug beat me to it

Tom, your ATs will be fine. not as nice as mud terrain tires for off roading but they are very good off road. Way better than those stock XPC's you were rocking before. I wheels with the same size and model tire that you have for a year and held up just fine.

Diff guards would be nice, but if you only have one, put it on the front diff as it plows more than the rear. Your axles are the same right? or do you have a sals rear? i forgot when i asked you.

Do not have Salsbury in rear... Got a nice Equipe guard from the forum last week but I think it is only for the rear...

That means you are just about ready for MAR right!?

yeah the front and rear diffs are the same so this should work on both, unless you have a diff guard that wraps around the a-arm part of the axle housing then it shouldn't be different. Most are interchangeable. Shit, I could probably find you a free one to run from a truck not heading to MAR. take one from Josh, doesn't he have any?

If you have the one pictured then you have one for the rear, not the front...two things you will notice. First, the mounting tab is designed to clear in the rear, not the front and the pinion support gusset is not going to allow your steering arm to fit.

I am assuming you bought this guard from Pedro who bought it from me for the rear of his Disco. I bought it for the front of my truck from Gus but later found that it would not fit...and so the saga continues with this guard!

Yeah, I have two bolt ons that are being held hostage by someone else, otherwise I would have just given them yo him to use in a pinch.

So I guess it gets mounted on the Rear. Yes I got it from Pedro, he sold it as a rear.... I guess I need to climb under the truck and just mount this damn thing...

Well it looks like this Guard has bounced around more than Tiger Woods did. I hope it bolts up well in the rear of my truck....

If anybody has one for the front I am interested..... With my luck there are not rocks are MAR anyway... Look forward to meeting you all at MAR, sharing my Rover and hunting stories...

Yes, that was my... jeff... goose... and gods know who diff guard it's was a very slutty guard.

The diff guard is for the rear. The front is bend slightly to accommodate the track rod.

I still have the AB diff guard if you are interested. (cheaper than an axle ) You can pic it up on your way down to MAR and install it there.

Left Pic is front... right is rear

OK so I am going to get my diff situation figured out.....

I have some other questions:

1. Is there a schedule at Mar (other than drive all day, drink at night, go to sleep, and do it again....)
2. Is there a list of vendors posted somewhere?
3. Other than the fly fishing and kayak's are there other activities?


Just curious as it looks like I have been convinced to go down there.

No schedule get up when you want leave when you want. Jump in line and hit the trail, you do have front and rear recovery right... last year i was out wheeling with the jersey guys till 4 in the morning
2. Is there a list of vendors posted somewhere?
check www.roav.org for vendors
3. Other than the fly fishing and kayak's are there other activities?
Depending on how stuck you get there could be Mud Wrestling and I think whiskey tasting from a vendor.

Hope to see you there.

There are usually a number of competitions:
Justins RTV ramp
balancing on the teeter toter
Aluminum Man Triathalon
RTV course
and others that escape me @ the moment

There are also events for kids.

Saturday night there is always a large auction in the big top of items donated by our benevolent sponsors which is how the club raises a lot of its funding. I think they have live music planed all three nights as well as a bon fire Friday night. Plenty to do. Impossible to do it all.
