I would definitely do it, but have a couple of friends joining who have never been off road. The most they’ve done is park in the grass at a concert. Lol.

Next time for sure.
So you hitting the blacks with them right?

Definitely!

I can hear my buddies wife now, cackling away about how it was such a bad idea to follow Joe down that muddy trail and get the Jeep dirty.

I'm supposed to be getting my Jeep back tomorrow with new front axle so if that happens, and not further delayed, we might be joining you (son and I)

I'm visiting family in PA now and on the 23rd my wife and I will be attending the 3-day 101, 102 and basic winch classes. Trying to get my wife some more experience. We plan on sticking around a few days after the classes to try to do some of the more difficult trails. Would like to do the badge of honor trails, but don't have skid plates on so not sure if I want to tear anything up before our trip back home. This is my jeep. Hope to see you around out there.

We will definitely be hitting trail 11 which is basically a green and crawler ridge(a blue) which with the lift you have you won’t have any issues not having aftermarket skid plates. If you want to go With us just let me know.

Appreciate it! Will definitely let you know when we get a better timeline on things and I'll send you a PM. Should know more by tomorrow evening. Would be great to link up with you all.

Did you get your jeep back?
Got it back and working to get all the front end adjusted properly again.

Dealership has the Synergy tiebar and draglink all mis-adjusted (safe lengths on double adjusters all too long) as well as left my engine/trans skids off as "we couldn't get them to fit"

They also seemed to have adjusted the front arms which I don't understand why so have to check that too.

Will know in a couple hours if I'll be able to make it, but happy to have it back as signed up for classes next weekend.

Working on it.

Got front arms and drag link adjusted and now working on tie-bar to get the ends set within tolerance. I have no idea what they did as it should have been remove and re-install without having to adjust a thing.

Last will be skids. You doing trails that need skids plates?

Mainly blues. And greens to get to them. One guy I go with still uses only stock skid plates and goes on blacks lol. Plus you have a lift.
