I did try coming to a couple of the meets, but ended up working on the weekends etc and now am deployed. It's on my list of things to do when I get back this fall. I also plan to hopefully put some money into the jeep, front and rear bumpers to finish my trail rig when I get back. Currently over in the sandbox, i'm driving around a RHD 4runner, or Surf they call it. Fun

There never is. But hey, with the lack of water, that leaves all the awesome jeep trails north of Doton's point available for exploration.

pic was taken on Doton's point. There were quite a few 4x4s out on friday too.

I have honestly never been out there. Is that entrance over on the Granite Bay side of things. I usually enter in El Dorado Hills or Folsom and have never entered past Beals Point.

I take Douglas all the way down until it crosses over Folsom-Auburn and just keep on driving... it turns into a state park and theres a bunch of places you can use the jeep Only down side is that there's a fee to go into the state park.

If you google earth it, you can get a good picture of all of the places you can go..... that's how I first found out about it.

Got the rest of the Zone lift on. It rides a lot better than I thought it would, and looks pretty good too. Now I need to get the 265/75-16 tires and wheel spacers on.

Looks great, dont forget to get an allignment soon! If youre getting new tires right away theyll do it then.

Today I took my WJ out for a drive, I was driving like a total jerk with the gear selector I had it in 2nd on this long straight road and I kept hitting it up to 45 (the speed limit was 40 oooh Im so dangerous ) then coasting down I was getting so many weird looks. As long as I'm easing onto the throttle gently I shouldnt be doing harm to the torque converter right?
