North Texas grands

Thought I'd start this thread in hopes of being able to do some meet and greets and some grand wheeling trips to bridgeport and other offroad spots, as well as meeting some new people to help with projects.
Please feel free to post pics of wheeling trips and recent mods.

I'll start,
I have a 2000 grand Cherokee limited with a 4" iron rock lift, sliders, and front long arms. Near Sherman/Denison area.

My name's Ian, in south Fort Worth and have a 96 ZJ Laredo 4.0, IRO 5.5" Critical Path lift, Goodyear Duratrac 33x12.5x15, Kevins rad support, some random brush guard I got off craigs list, and bout every bolt on (read "worthless") performance mod.



Here is my youtube channel which has a ton of vids from Bridgeport and a few local spots. They are un-edited so a ton of wind and swear words, but some of them are pretty funny.

ALSO I just ran into a dude on some trails who told me about a fab shop him and some guys just opened in north Fort Worth. www.fortworthfabrication.com They quoted me $600 even on kevins pre-runner tube bumper which is 650 from Kevin plus like 180 shipping.

Sorry for the long winded post

All jeeps look good lifted

My back seats are out though cause I live in an apartment, so my cargo area is more like my rolling garage. I have a 4 tier tool box with a flip up lid compartment, spare d35 axle shaft, drain pan (just used recently as I blew my radiator on a trail) spare fluids, etc. I'm pretty screwed if I roll over. I have most stuff strapped down though.

Also, totally forgot to mention my other Grand: my daily driver is a gold 06 WK 2wd 3.7 liter 3.07 geared soccer-mom-mobile. This is my only real picture of it. It's an older picture from right after I lifted the ZJ

x2 I've been refraining from wheeling so I could save money (breaking is expensive) but I am itching for some trails. And every time I go with my wrangler buddies I end up in the middle of a four diamond questioning my decisions in life

Since we are all local I thought I'd send out some invites to ya'll. For spring break we are planning a trip to PINS, a number of LSJC guys expressed interest in caravaning down there. Here's the threadhttp://lsjc.org/board/showthread.php?t=58085

Just got invited on a trip to Gilmer on the weekend we're discussing Bridgeport. Being as I've never been to Gilmer yet I'm inclined to check it out. Was looking forward to a grand trip, hopefully this first won't be the last and I can catch ya'll next time!
