Trails arent usually published online.

There a few of us from Boise and surrounding areas that go on runs regularly. Check out the trail runs thread and tag along.

Welcome to Boise! As Turbineguy said, these guys do runs nearly every weekend. They're headed up to Arrowrock Reservoir this Saturday for a run and I'm sure you're more than welcome. You can find the details HERE.

I almost was a YJ guy but the deal feel through. I found the XJ is the most bang for the buck... standard Aw4...4.0.. 8.25 axle. For a fraction of the price. So Im happy.

Thanks marty for the tips on the trails. I can't make it this week but next week I'm game. I'm still building my rig, waiting on a couple parts.

Ha! I had a YJ first also, but had to ditch one of them, kept the XJ. Worth it!

Thanks I may take you up on that offer when I get ready to install my SYE. I have never done one before.

Belated welcome!
SYEs are pretty straight forward. You should be good. If not plenty of us would be willing to help.

Post some pics of your xj! I love pics

Cheers
