Zj New guy in Aurora....

Howdy everyone. New to the jeep thing, but im addicted now! Even got my nephew addicted and he just purchased his first jeep. Mine is a 98 GC, his is a 91 Cherokee. We're always looking to hit trails, mud holes, etc. So hopefully some of u will extend the invite.

Heres mine, stock hieght, on newly added Dick Cepek wheels and 30x9 mudders.

The closest trails near us are about an hour away in Marseilles. The Cliffs Insane Terrain Offroad park. Straight west on route 71, for about 30 miles, then south 15 minutes to Marseilles.

I'd be up for it. I actually work and reside near Ottawa this time of year thru early July, so I'm right down the street from the Cliffs. Right now its still fairly slow at work so I can make a trip to the cliffs feasible.

Its way tighter than the Badlands. You'll definitely leave with trail pinstripes thats for sure. As long as you dont mind it, its still lots of fun.
