    Hi All: New member to the website in March, located in Mason Michigan. I had the CJ models in the 80s and early 90s. My son bought a Wrangler when he graduated from college 2002. Just sold it this year and bought a new JLUR. He told me how much different it was from my old CJs. Test road one and now have a new Sahara. I am really enjoying the ride and now planning a bucket list trip to Alaska during this summer.

    I live just south of Lansing in Dimondale. You may even see me rolling in Mason as we go to the Depot for breakfast often on the weekends and my favorite gun shop is in Mason. Not Just Guns......

    We will be taking our Jeep to Alaska in 2022. We even thought about doing the ALCAN 5000 rally.

    Wibornz - Let me know when you are going to the Depot in Mason for breakfast on a Saturday and I will join you. There breakfasts dishes are great.

    Hello Michiganders, I call home in Canton however, I have a cabin in South Boardman where I like to spend as much time as possible, (20 minutes SE of traverse city) I had a YJ and a 78 CJ 7 with an AMC 360 for about 15 years that I traded to get into side x sides. I sold the S X S and bought a JL. I just enjoy the versatility of jeeps. Although this forum has been getting some negative people lately, it is by far the best JL forum on the web.

    Glad to hear I didn't end up going the SXS route - my buddy had a CAN AM maverick and we ended up rolling it 3 times and after that I was just kind of over it - I really do like the Can Am defender though - may think about one of those for plowing the drive but still a pricey lttle toy. Do you have any fire trails or spots up by you?
