Hey Guys and Gals, I am new to the Jeep world, just got my YJ a month ago and it is ready to get dirty. I am a newb to the 4x4 world but would be interested in some suggestions for places to go. I live in Maple Valley. Anybody out there find some goos intermidate places to start out.
I am a newb as well. I just picked up a 93 YJ and want to take it out. Let me know what works for you. I might be able to make it happen this Saturday early morning if you want. Heard there some good spots in Enumclaw.
We are going to do Fortune Creek tomorrow Sunday. Any takers? The trail map lists it as easy, I'm completely stock other than the Sport S package and LSD. There appears to be some nice mixed moderate off shoots, so we can consider upping the ante if we have enough recovery gear/people.
We took the Hawkins Mnt Mines offshoot for something little more challenging at the end. I was very pleased again with the performance of my stock rig.
I did reach the limit of my SRA tires a couple of times it seemed, I think the LSD came to the rescue.
Grant's rig had a nice lift and 35's that handled many obstacles that I needed to find a better line for. I was glad to see he had a winch in case things got hairy, fortunately we did not need it.
Can I just say that disconnecting the sway bars is an absolute must. This was the first time I tried it and the Jeep felt soooo much more solid and planted to the ground. Wow. The manual disconnect does take time and kinda sucks, but worth it.
I hope to get out again before the weather changes too much.
