Perfect, thanks man. I'm just looking to get this thing in the jungle, see what the NW has to offer. Also, in my case, what would be good things to get for my WJ parts-wise?

Are you bone-stock right now?

I suggest go get some Recovery points front and back, and a tow strap or two. would be a start, then it is a never ending list.. anything from lifts-tires-lockers-axles-lights-winch-skid-plates-re-gearing-etcetera

Most of the wheelin in the area is all either in the coast range or at the coast. Google Browns Camp OHV and Sand Lake Oregon. There are a few other smaller areas too if your lookin to get your feet wet.

Ben, any new news on dirt church?

How about some good/long forest service roads? Anyone have some to recommend? It's been over a decade since I've been offroad and at this point I'm more looking for solitude. Wouldn't mind some fun stuff to play on though.

Lots of roads in the Mt. Hood Forest area. Go to Estacada Ranger station and grab a map.
