I am hopefully getting me JK unlimited this week something and can't wait.
So, I am being kicked out of the house the weekend of Sept 14th to 16th as my wife is hosting a baby shower. And when I say kicked out I of course mean I have decided to take leave for the weekend and save my dog the embarrassment of being dressed up with ribbons etc.
Sorry for the back story, but just wanted everyone to know hoe important this request is..
Does anyone know where I can go to do some light wheeling, camping and my dog doesn't have to be on leash the entire time ? He's a calm and well controlled border collie that doesn't cause any trouble.
I am in the Bay Area but willing to travel anywhere in NorCal.
If you want to drive a few hours you can go up into Shaver Lake area in the Western Sierras. There are some nice campgrounds and trails to explore. You can also head east from the bay area and go up around Tahoe, or go through Yosemite and work your way down around Mammoth area. Lots of camping and wheeling everywhere around there. All depends on how much time you have.
Up near Redding, or lake orville theres plenty of places to go and do some wheelin and camping. Shasta lake and Plumas national forests are awsome places to get away from the ratt race. Be carfull its fire season up there and its in full effect.
Just want to bring this up, it may be a non-issue, but don't forget about the break-in period on the engine. I thought I read in the manual that it is not required for the JK, and I don't remember breaking mine in. But, double check!

Just having a couple of mods, small lift and wheels and tires. And then a couple of small extras , lights etc.
Back to Coyote flats, does anyone know if I would need a winch going to Funnel Lake ? I plan to head up for the weekend of Sept 14th and 15th. I know people have said it's not a hard trail by any means but as I am going alone I wanted to ask as I don't have a winch yet.
