Ahh Cool. So looks like we have 3 confirmed yes's and 2 maybe's as of now. Yeah I just noticed that this Sat is cleanup day. Thought that was in a few weeks. Anyhow, I don't mind helping out to remove some of the "left over parts" It's for a good cause.

I really wish I could - I had so much fun out there last week. Got to keep the "Bank" happy if I want future loans.

BTW, I think from what is on the "Bank's" Calendar, I might have a few hours in the weeee hours of the AM to work on the Jeep. I'm going to try to get it washed in the middle of the night on Friday, then Saturday, try to install the 2" BB and my CB antenna, oh and I got those bumper endcaps from Amazon.

Too bad I couldn't get that 2.5" RC Spring Lift from Doug since Tony beat me to it , That would have been great, then I could have just sold my new and not installed 2" BB.

I'm interested in tagging along; if you don't mind a total park newb.
Never been to Cliff's (or anywhere organized) and I checked out the website. Other than a flag I couldn't find any required equipment listed. Other than 31" Duratracs and a 2.5" lift I'm pretty stock. The pics on the cliff's site are pretty gnarly - are there "beginner" trails?

You should be fine with your setup, Plenty of "beginner" trails. You have a similar setup to mine and it's TONS of fun. Required equip is a spare tire (not a space saver donut thing) 4x4, and front & back tow points. A CB is REALLY handy to have. As of now we will be on channel 22. They sell the flags on site. Its a small fiberglass whip and can just be closed in the rear door hinge. Also, get yourself a tow strap if you don't already have one. WEAR BOOTS expect to get muddy!! As of now we are a small group of 3 confirmed.

The more the merrier as far as I'm concerned. Keep in mind that the 1st couple of hours are for cleanup of the park on Saturday. If you're not into that then show up at 10(ish). Shoot me a PM with your number and I'll send ya mine.

I did a covert operation for the wash myself a couple of days ago. More of just a hose it off then a wash though... The bumper caps CAN be found through a Jeep dealer (from what I'm told) and for cheaper but for only $20(ish) it worked for me. Keep your screws and nut insert things from your old milk jugs.

Get that BB on. It will work just fine!!!

Mine didn't come from the factory with them either. I had to install them myself.

Well...was the pre-wedding for your wedding? If so I can relate (1 year anniversary is in a few weeks).

Got the BB on this evening - was at my friends house and noticed how nice it was outside - so I said "wanna work on my Jeep" and he said "only if you brought tools". So I pulled out the SUV floor jack, 6 ton jack stands - and all my tools from the back

Next is 31" Duratracs and maybe a 1.25" BL. I don't have photos yet.

yup, big day is one month away. Fiancee is freaking out so no jeeping for now will result in more jeeping later. She leaves me alone most weekends so I figure if I make her life easier now...kind of a "pay it forward" for jeeping.

Yep - if you make her happy you get away with alot more. My wife "the Bank" is approving of jeep upgrades when she's in a good mood and I've treated her well.

It looks so much better - with it being a LWB - without the BB it looked too low and long like a limo

EDIT: BTW I saw the photos - looks like I missed out on a really fun time. Weather was good for it. How muddy was it after the rain?

It was Awesome!! Great time and hit just about every trail (if you can call some of them that) in the place. It was actually LESS muddy then the weekend we went. Crazy huh??
