Where have you been so far? I wouldnt mind going up over Potato Ridge (the pass that goes over from Red Rock). Its close and its not too difficult. Well, it might be with some snow up there.

I just got my new JK a couple days ago, and have been itching to wheel. I want to go to the Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, so I need to get some experience under my belt.

Hey Prior2, can you fill out your info about your new JK?

Sounds like something might be getting set up here.

I just added the info on it.

I saw your sig before you changed it too. I actually saw a guy driving on the 15 in a BMW 335 with a plate that said "HH60AG"

I would be up, but with stock everything (including tires), I doubt I would do very well in the snow.

with the traction control on your JK, you'd probably do very well.

I didn't think about that. It also has the limited slip rear diff if that helps much. It has been a dream finally having traction control on a vehicle though. The Ranger I got rid of last week would have been horrible in this weather...

one of my friends in my 4x4 club has a JK that as far as I know is open/open.

he says the traction control almost makes it like a limited slip.

as far as the weather....you should have my top combo....

If the Air Force had let me in, I would have tried for AG, or Loadmaster... I'm not sure on the Christmas Day run though, I'll have to see what plans I have with family that day.
