Moving to Austin

Hello, my name is Harry and my wife and I will be moving to Austin around September. We are moving from Bakersfield, CA. I have been searching the web for places to wheel, and groups to go wheeling with. I am not sure if it will be diffrent than rock crawling I am use to here in CA but I am sure I will have some fun!!

A little about my rig aka GULF WAR XJ:

1989 Jeep Cherokee
4.0L
AW4 w/2nd gear lockout switch for crawling
NP321 w/SYE
Custom built steering w/heim joints
Rusty's 8" Long arm suspension lift
35x12.50x15 BFGoodrich KM2's
Dana 30: Trussed, SOLID diff cover, ARB locker, Chromoly axles
8.25: Disc brakes, Limited Slip, Chromoly axles
Bilstein 5150's

now for some pics:









here is a little vid of when I got the XJ and how it got the way it looks today:



Hope to get to do some wheeling Texas style soon!!

Welcome. Love the Jeep.

You should look out toward Dripping Springs (30 miles W of Austin) for a place to live. I need a buddy out here to wrench with.

too late.. commiefornians have already taken over Austin.. thats why our new house is on the outskirts in Jarrell! if there isnt a starbucks within 5 miles you can be pretty sure there wont be any californians around. i think you'll like Texas, its definitely a whole lot cheaper!

Welcome to the site. You will dig Austin. I met my wife at a bar on 6th Street 27 years ago. Lake Travis area is the best bet if you have the coin. If your into boating and need a good marina and repair shop on Lake Travis go visit Erikson Marine.
