I don't know how the WJ bumper is put together a saws-all would be better. Get good blades, go slow and let it's little motor rest / cool often.

Thanks. This may be time to invest one of those micro air-powered saws-all. I just need to trim the fascia. Not a project for the milwaulkee.

LOL no worries! I bet when JF upgraded to a different server it got wiped out. Looks like you'll have to earn your post status all over again

Yep, groups head to the Cliffs and Indiana badlands quite frequently, keep an eye out in the IL forum sections and this thread.

I myself usually go at least once a month but my jeep is currently on it's last legs for stage 2 and won't be ready to wheel until stage 3 is started.

Or if you don't see any trips listed pick a date and post it, I always get somebody willing to go when I do that. We have a camper in Indiana so I'm usually up for a Badlands run during the summer.
