Took her out for (to me) its first off road trip. We went from St. Helen to Rose City then bull gap. Had a great time. Now I'm really conflicted what I'm going to do next to this jeep. Only issue I had was i slide into a tree and scratched the passenger rear fender.

Replace the fender, obviously! Can’t have one with a scratch on it, can you?! And while you are at it, I would add wings and a jet propulsion pack for flight purposes. If your tires are big enough, you won’t need landing gear. 👍

Nope scratches give it character, will never be called a mall crawler.

Now, moving past Barbie's awesome Jeep, tell us about how the Jeep handled the trail.

Do you feel it needs more suspension travel? Did anything drag over rocks, logs or berms? Were you comfortable with the 4WD operation?

If you’ve got decent rubber under it a stock base Jeep will go a LOT of places, and will, in fact, outperform Most drivers. Enjoy your Jeep!

You wouldn't happen to have any pictures of the actual Barbie who owns this Jeep, would you? I might be interested.

Here ya go… unfortunately for you, she is already taken. I heard Ken is a Bronco guy, though, so you may still have a chance.

Thats my problem not sure what direction I want to go. It's a completely stock rubicon and did everything most of the time 2wd. I do know I want to go wider on the tires.

Wait, wait... were you...? Were you having sex with your Jeep? 😟

As a fellow Michigander, I can attest to the great trails you were on. Rose City area has some of the best trails around. Bull Gap is very cool as well. Congrats and Jeep on!

There is a basic question you need to answer for yourself then.

"How do I intend to use my Jeep?"

Answering that will help you find the direction you seek.

Good luck.
