Dang that is cheap for the rear bumper.... If I was wanting a tire carrier I would jump all over it. After yesterday I think I may need a new transfer case, it won't stay in 4lo and yesterday I tried holding the handle in place with my hand and it popped out and it sounded like it stripped the 4lo out lol so there's that lol, still have 4hi though.

I passed you yesterday and waved at you, it was about 6pm and you were heading toward Monticello and I was heading toward Somerset, I was in my jeep but it was covered in mud lol. I went out and played around strawberry for a little bit, didnt do much since I was by my self, had people in the jeep but no other vehicle (broke my own rule there lol never wheel by yourself).

You probably did pass me, I travel 90 often going to Somerset. I hadn't logged onto here in awhile to see my messages. I get them through my new phone now. And yes, Jeeping alone is not a good idea, especially with no winch and prob. no cell service. Sounds like your transfer case may have a bad synchronizer in it. I think the TJ has the same 231 New Process Transfer case as the YJ's do.

Anytime on the weekends you want to go Wheeling, just hollar at me, if I am not busy with something here at home, be glad to meet up and go Jeeping. Especially places I haven't been around here before.

The first weekend of every March, my buddies from Ohio come down with trucks, 4x4's, quads, etc. and we have a weekend of 4 wheeling and messing around here on the farm. Usually hit Slick Ford, but we are always in the hunt for a new place and/or new guide. Maybe you and your buddies can join us this coming March, and have a big time.

Take it about 2-3 miles back along the valley and you will come to a small home on the right and just past it, there is a bridge or you can take the road through the creek again. Just past the bridge the road takes a steep left turn and starts up the mountain. When you get almost to the top, you cross into Tenn. The first intersection there is a sign for Trumans Overlook, that road goes to the left about 2 miles then deadends, if you go straight, it will come to another intersection, which is a road leading back out to 167 on the Tenn side. Keep going straight and it will come to one last intersection, there will be a sign about the off roading rules on the corner and usually trucks w/trailers parked there. Turn to the right and it takes you all through those mountains, to some beautiful overlooks down by Pall Mall, TN (U.S. 127) or you can turn right before that and hit some great 4 wheeling trails.

I will post some pics from three weeks ago in a few minutes, from when I took some friends from Ohio up there.. We go the first weekend in March every year. Have been for 23 years now. There are places called Blue Hole, Carpenters Cave, Preachers Rock, The Rollback, etc., and there is even a marked trail that goes to the beer store on 200 at the Ky.-Tenn state line. LOL

I live outside Monticello on the lake.
We were down in the area for the weekend and did the loop out to trumans overlook. Was pretty nice! didn't have time to explore where all the vehicles with trailers were parked.

I finally found a place to ride at, it's got alot of stuff to ride on. Place everyone calls strawberry, toward Monticello. If your coming from somerset on 90 toward Monticello you make a left onto road 1568, then you come to a fork in the road and go left and go till u come to a creek bottom, and your there. There's trails left and right, I've only been on the trails to the right, alot of fun down there, easy to get lost though (been there done that lol) I do alot of riding down there, got a couple of friends that ride there almost every weekend.
When you get to the end of the road by the creek, is there a field and cemetery on the left??
We went out to take the Jeep down there, and the wives were freaking out since nothing is marked. We saw about 5 minutes of trail before turning around haha. Party poopers

Yea nothing down there is marked, there's a bunch of ways to get in, ranging from mild to wild. The easiest way to get in from the creek, when you get to the creek go left and you will see a gravel road take that and that's one of the main trails in. If you go right, it's tricky, and there's only 2 ways in one is nothing but rocks to climb, and the other is a hill with ledges to crawl up, my jeep can't do nothing with those, I can come down them just fine but not up. It's easy to get lost down there so be careful and try not to go by your self.

I'll post in this thread next time we get a group to go wheeling down there again and you can tag along if you want. It's usually on a Saturday around 12 or 1pm we go.

Thanks for the info. We were down from Indiana for the weekend , I had fun even though girls were chicken.
We went right, but not very far at all.

There was a car parked on the gravel trail on the left (I think there was a funeral going on back there) and we couldn't get by.

Sorry to dig up an old thread. I live in Albany and work in Monticello and I would love to ride some of these places with you guys if you all meet up any time soon. Lived here all of my life yet I've never made it out to Slickford, Strawberry, or the Pickett's. I also have a full detailed map of all the trails at Slickford with all the overlooks, caves, ponds, cabins, state lines, and roads labeled if anyone is interested in a copy! I ride dirtbikes a lot and a good riding buddy of mine who lives in Monticello gave me the map so I could take my bike to the trails, just haven't made it out there yet. Around here we all usually ride two places called Coal Bank and Poplar Mountain (or Savage Mountain depending on which side of the county you grew up) which are right on the border of Albany and Monticello. I would love to ride with a group of Jeeps!

Sorry for such a late reply, it's been a bit since I've been on here. If you have Facebook, look up Somerset Jeep Owners Club, most of us are on there now. Pretty good group of people. We set up everything through that group now, all the rides and stuff. Were gonna try to go to strawberry soon but not sure when. I'm broke down right now with tranny problems, had to put it in the shop lol. But yea look on Facebook and join the group.

Anyone is welcome to look up the group and join if their around the Somerset/Monticello/London area. We welcome all jeeps lol. Also if your not around the Somerset area there's other clubs that may closer to you, look up Kentucky Jeep Owners Club, I think the charters right now are Louisville, Lexington, bowling green, and Somerset.
