Lets do a ride to bundyhill 2 weekends from now on Sun the 23 Meet at Denny's at 275 and an arbor road for breakfast and they have a scavenger hunt. Would be fun if a few of us went.

Ah, I think I found it on Google Maps... I'll have to go check it out. Definitely want to get back to Bundy Hill again, but might not be able to make it on the 23rd... we might end up installing our new kitchen cabinets that weekend.

Lol, just lights (Truck-Lite LEDs and windshield mounted lights pointed to the sides) and a CB, unfortunately. Haven't had time to look into a winch, but that's next.

You got a new Jeep now?

I've got a buddy that's bringing out is old TJ and maybe another one with a jk. So we could have a good size crew. It's always cool to see a line of jeeps on the highway!

Start small, then go big. It makes you appreciate each and every mod. So just start with a small 4" long arm kit, something simple, probably wanna do a Coil over kit, simple stuff, everyone's first mod I'll say

Just remember the only prob with modding over time is every thing in the mean time is being used and warn and it's a lot easier to replace parts and get them to fit right when things are still new. You will put something new on an have to replace 3 other parts that you did not intend to change because they were warn. Just an FYI. The best thing is to save the money and plan it out get a price on what you want done and do it when u can do it all. I did that before I even bought the jeep and had it all done at once when I bought it. Next for me is super chips but that is a definite warranty breaker. So I wait. Just had trans work done too so glad I waited on that.

Yes... Do it all right away. I agree. I did all mine at 300 miles... Would've been sooner, but I was waiting on parts...

I dropped by that trail off Maple Rd in Wixom last week... looks like there's a neighborhood under construction back there. I followed the trail as far as the railroad crossing, but right past it is a post in the way and a "no trespassing" sign.

Tentatively I'm still on for Bundy Hill this weekend, but it's still up in the air if my wife will be joining me...
