Anyone up for a Friday trip to Badlands?

I have a mostly stock TJ with a 2" lift and 31/10.5 tires. I'm looking for someone with a similar setup to go wheeling with. I don't want to bash around and break everything just a nice day of wheeling and playing in the mud. I would like to stick to the easy trails. I do not have a tow rope but I do have tow hooks front and rear. If you have a low pressure tire gauge that would be awesome! I cant get there until about noon. I'm coming from Illinois. Let me know if you're interested. I might be bringing a child with me so I want you to behave if he is with me. I don't know the Badlands very well and I get lost easily.

I am planning the trip for that day. Ive got a jeep very close to what you got 31" KM2's 3.25" of lift and a winch. If you are going LMK I need a trail buddy. Im going with my dad and Bro but they will be in my jeep-No rig of there own.

LMK.

Oh yeah, I am going to be there that day. All I was wanting is someone to buddy up with so I don't get stranded. How are you liking that 3.25" lift? I plan to do that lift next. I don't want to go with a 4" and 33s I thought a 3.25" and 32/10.50 tires would be just perfect. Not top heavy but give me the extra clearance I want. I haven't been out since my 2" and new shocks so I will get to see if I like this setup or still want to go with the 3.25" lift.

I'd love to come but the tj is getting stripped of all the stuff I want then being put up for sale, and the wj is riding on street shoes with no recovery points.
