You guys are killing me. I tried to talk my girls into having their b-day party at the Badlands, but they didn't bite...lol! You'll have to let us know if the new owners made any changes...good and or bad.
I'm going to try do to a (mini) "Jeffro95 trail report" for the guys who can't make it this time.
Thanks for having interest on coming along with us. This will be a small group and quite a few cannot make it for this run. Last time we had a run we had 17 jeepers and it was awesome. This run will be fun yet interesting because of the weather. It's going to be really muddy and wet out. The forecast says it's going to be raining and in the 40's. So, Dress up warm, bring extra clothes, a rain coat and boots. If possible, please being a 2 way radio or a cb so, we can contact eachother on the trails. We look forward to have some new jeepers to join in and hopefully join our club. You are welcome to ask other jeeper to join in if you see some around your area. Well, We'll see you soon and we'll have a blast.
Hmmm....any tips on how to convince the wife to let me go, or better yet, get her and the 14 month old to come along?
I've got a stock 2000 XJ; would that get me around some of the trails? I think that's the only way the wife would come along.
I also have an '86 CJ7 with the 6, dana 300 t-case, 44 out back and the 30 (i think) up front. i could take that if i was alone. any suggestions on my equipment regarding "trailability" or things i should have to make it through most trails? thanks all and i'd like to get involved in a local club
I think you should be fine in stock Jeeps, i have a WK with a 2" lift and was able to go on all of the trails we did last time. JeepsGoneWild was really great for "stockers" who just wanted to have fun without breaking anything . The key was to go slow and know when to drive around rather than push your luck. there were some larger rocks that I drove around rather than over....just don't have the ground clearance. But there was always a "safer route".
