Im thinking about joining you guys if that's cool? I'm pretty new to the Jeep scene, but have been dying to get her on the trail. Just added an M8000 & now have a little more confidence in my ability to get out of a bad situation.
Does anyone have an objection to me bringing a buddy who runs a 70's Bronco on 35's?

I just ordered a CB yesterday, so I'll be studying my trucker lingo. Hope to get it installed next week.

I've never been to the badlands, so I'll need to grab a flag when I get there. How does everyone attach theirs to their rig?

Lots of options, people bolt em up all kinds of places. If nothing else take a bunch of zip ties and attach it to your tire carrier or something. Any open light tabs you have would work as well

you will be fine. Anyone who doesnt have a winch we just stick between 2 people who do in case they get stuck its easy to pull them in any direction. and sure.. bring them along. I actually have been trying to get my buddies Bronco running so he can come out with us but its been quite a chore.

There are a million different ways to attach a flag. some people use zip ties... some people make their own mount. I went to the easiest secure way... If you go to pretty much any bicycle shop you can buy a flag and a mount \ there that attaches to bike axles. They are about 5-8 bucks. Badlands flags are 20 bucks.. but have a lifetime warranty on them. Coincidentally.. that axle mount fits perfectly on the bolts around jeeps windshield.. so i just loosened the bolt and put the bracket on and tightened the bolt back up. It doesnt rust or anything so I never remove it.

Oh.. and there is a guy driving down from canada to offroad with us and he is bringing his kid.. and I belive a couple other people are as well.

CB should be here today! UPS put it on the wrong damn truck yesterday, but at least I got the antenna mounted & the cable run.

We'll be driving up Saturday morning. Anyone else coming from South, East or Southeast side of Indy? Not sure if we're going to be camping or not. Might hang out for a while after wheeling, then head back home. We'll see.

there are a couple that are hanging out after wheeling and then either going to a hotel (they dont camp) or heading back home. There are a couple people coming from around Indy, but they are on another forum. if you dont convoy over with them this time then maybe on one of the next trips.

You should be able to keep up with nick. There will be some others there that are close to stock like me.

It is best to mount it to the front bumper. It really does no good to put it on the rear.

I went to Badlands about two weeks ago had a great time. Word to the wise stay the heck out of the culverts. Water was 40 inchs deep coming out and dropping down. Covered my hood and sucked about 2 or 3 gallons of water into my motor. Had to pull all the plugs and pump out the water. Two years ago the water was only about 8 inchs deep.

I'm looking at wheeling the on 6th. Girls are going out of town & me & my son need something to do. Was thinking of making a trip to Interlake, but might join this group if you all don't mind. It's about an hour shorter drive for me than Interlake.

Anyone else bring kids. My boys only 4, goes by the name of Bubba.
I usually bring my son (just turned 6), but I have prior arrangements for Saturday. I'm hoping to meet up with some of you on Sunday though.
