Indiana members?

Hey to all the Indiana members on here. I just bought a 2004 TJ like 2 weeks ago. I am coming from a 350Z so its been a BIG change to say the least. Anyways I have never really had any buddy's to wheel with. I was just wondering where people meet up around central indiana or if anybody knew a place around Indianapolis to go do some simple wheeling so I can get a feel for this thing before I go nuts! thanks guys!

It looks like you are only 80 miles or so, depending on route you take, from Attica Indiana, home of the Badlands. It's worth the trip. Plenty for first timers or old timers. I make the trip from much further away...4 hours...and it's worth it.

Cool, Im in castleton everyday! There are a few places close to wheel, and a few that are a little bit of a drive, but well worth it. We are going to badlands on nov. the 17th. will probably caravan out of indy, or just north in pendleton. If you are interested in going to noblesville let me know, its fun and have been a few times.

I'm in Bloomington, and looking for ppl to wheel w/ here in Indiana. I'm new to offroading, but new to Indiana.
I'm hoping to make it to Attica (Badlands offroad park) in November for a trail run.
PM me if you ever wanna go out.

sounds great guys, I am at college in Bloomington and am waitin on my 350Z to sell so I can bring my Jeep down, If i get it down here and get the lift on it im down to go to badlands. also down to wheel with people in indy, this may sounds stupid but we should all add each other as friends and just message each other when we are going out so the others can come out around indy, just an idea

I know of some pretty fun spots to simply go ride some trails down here in bloomington, my roommate has a pathfinder with 31's, nothing serious but its fun

hey also does anybody know how much a body lift would be to install? or how difficult is it? I have never done anything like that before so it worries me that the body could not be straight or something if I do it myself. Thanks
