My Eagles are stock, and I rely on them for daily driving, so I would be up for very easy trails only.
Would they enforce the tow hook rule on the easiest trails?

I've never been to a park, but I have seen on more than one web site that they require tow hooks and
they must be bolted, no welded.
I expect that someone with experience will tell us more.

HMMMMM? the broncs got hooks, but they're welded. but truthfully they've never been used in my recovery, in fact they're only on the rear bumper, and Ive used them plenty of times to drag people out of the snow. I know the welds are strong, I wonder what they have against welded hooks? truthfully if they're gonna get all snotty about little things like recovery hooks, then Ill wheel elsewhere.

Now that I think about it, I don't need recovery hooks, Ive got hitch receivers front and rear, so hooks are redundant. I do want some big D rings on the front though.

I now have more money in it then I paid for her , but then again i don't guess $550 is very much for a running , drive it home 4 wheel drive . hope this works .

Nice wagon & for $550 dive it home, I'd say you did real good. Mine was more than that & used a case & half of oil driving home from Okla. Knew it had an oil leak when I bought it, just didn't realize it was that bad. Welcome to The Nest, bunch of great folks on here.

James,

What a great snag for 550!

Just wanted to come in here and say hi to all my follow MO Eagle lovers.

I was also wanting to take a look at an Eagle this weekend and was curious if there would be anyone local that had some knowledge of the Eagle that could come along with me. The car is in Bourbon, MO...in between Rolla and STL on I-44. Here is the thread I started asking if it was a decent deal.

MO Eagle Freaks! Where you guys be at?

Apparently there is a little AMC get together this Thursday at 6:30 at Growlers in STL. More details in the Meet section.

I just thought we should get this thread going again. I'd like to figure out who our current MO Eaglers are.

Unfortunately, I'm no longer in Misery or I'd have probably been there (even without my Eagle).

Will do. You weren't all that far off from where I was. I was in O'Fallon (St. Charles county). Would've been nice to meet another Nester in person. Only met a few, for the most part, a great bunch of people (even if they are all young'uns). Be nice to find someone else in my neck of the woods. Have heard there's someone on the eastern side of the state I'm in now, probably 2 - 3 hour drive.

Yeah, I'm only 26.

I've never been to O'Fallen, MO, but I love their Hemp Hop Rye Beer. So good.

Last chance to let the Missouri-St. Louis area people know about the meet tonight at 6:30. Hope I'm not the only Eagle there!
