I'm going on Saturday. First time on the trails with the new jeep... Do they have varying difficulties of trails?

Milani, who are you going with? They have a map but I didn't follow it. And I think it did have ratings.

I'm still in my first season but many years of mountain biking that has transferred nicely!

My suggestions, milani:
- go out in pairs at least
- have tow points both front and rear
- have a tow strap
- have a CB
- have an air pump and good gauge

Thanks! I should be receiving today:

Hi-Lift Jack, platform, and mount.
30x3" tow strap
Teraflex deflators
Multi-purpose shovel

And I am taking along an AC air compressor, since I have an invertor in my JK along with a hose long enough to get around the vehicle.

WRedTJ, if you want to meet up, I can let you know what time we are planning to be there... I am coming from Orland Park, so it should take me @ 1 hr to get there... The forecast is starting to call for rain... Guess I better pack my top as well!

Cool, sounds like you are setup nicely!! Does your Jeep already have tow / d-rings?

6, where are you driving in from? I'm coming down from Hoffman Estates.

Will try to do Saturday as well!!

Unfortunately, no I do not. I do have an old handheld scanner, but that doesn't do me much good if I need to talk to someone!

Ha, understood. Well if you happen to run across one pick it up! Will save us a shitload of time and getting in and out to coordinate and checking if clear, etc.
Trust me.

And buy a handheld! Simple and effective. Mine was like $75 with an antennae and perfect for the trails!

Nice! I thought it was overkill at first then realized how much more driving we did vs out and talking!

But for sure hand held so you don't install and can use anywhere!

I saw the cobra handheld, but I also like the Cobra 75 and Midland hidden installs.

If you go to a truck stop they have them. Also amazon has them. I'm running a cobra from there works great

Great to know, maro. I need to find one and get a full size antennae to also mount trail flag!

I too run a Cobra from Amazon with a short magnetic antennae.

I'll pass three truck stops on the way there, but I'll have the wife with me, which makes the purchase a little more obvious
