I am interested. Just bought a jeep primarily to go on trails. Where do you usually go? Im in the metro DETROIT area so new to the trails.

Got my TJ a year ago. Delta Co. area. If we want to ride together we need to set up some dates and times. I'm headed to Mesick, MI for the Blessing of the Jeeps this weekend but I do day rides as much as I can get away with.
There's 2 Jeep Jamborees (Google that to see exact dates) one on Drummond Island and the other is in Northern WI (Mole Lake area?)
Who's ready to go?
Let's go!

I'm from Marquette and just bought my first Wrangler. I'm having issues with my hard top, the doors leak bc the top isn't fitting snug enough, any ideas on how to fix that?

Factory or aftermarket hard top? Could be as simple as replacing old door seals and the top's seals and making sure the top is squared and trued to the Jeep.
I bought a brand new aftermarket hard top and there were directions with measurements on how to make sure the windshield was at the proper angle before top was installed. The more the top is off and on makes all the seals less likely to do their job. Wind noise was something I battled for a while too. A guy that used to work for a hardtop company and installed them on a regular basis advised me to get it fitted right then never remove it again!

It's aftermarket. I resealed it and that seems to be helping a little, I'll have to find parts to get it fitted better to completely fix the problem. Thanks for the advice.

Iron Mountain here. New to the forum, and my first Wrangler. I've had many other 4x4s including a Grand Cherokee.

Anyone know if there are any Jeep Clubs around here?

Not really a club, more of a loose social group that wheels together

MichiganWheelers...THE place to be for Michigan off-road fun!

A lot of the users are from the NLP and UP.

Yeah, but have been living in Lower MI since 1986. It's been quite a while since I've been in Yooper Country. Originally from Ontonagon. I finally bought myself a Jeep - a money pit more like. Oh well, I'll get'r fixed come heck or high water.

My family is from the U.P. (Ishpeming/Negaunee area). We usually make the trek back up there every August for a week or two. I love it up there. Even though I'm stuck on the east coast I'm a yooper at heart.

went out for a ride this evening with it so nice out and got a little dirty. not nearly as much snow in the woods as I thought there'd be, but the roads are still pretty soft in spots.

we were near pricket dam and the Ottawa national forest

Menominee. New to forum and recently bought a Wranger after having been without a Jeep since I sold my old CJ years ago. It feels great to drive a Jeep again.
One more thing to check off of my "bucket list"
