Jeep-YJ-91 Yea man send some pics when you get your tires on. Take a look at my pic...I just put my 33's on and they fit pretty good with a 1.5 inch shackle lift. I wanna put a 2.5 suspension lift on next for a total of 4 inches.

But we gotta get that badlands trip together this spring!!!

crikeyjeepturtles I'm interested in going. I'm running stock now but I wanna see how it handles before I slap on a 4in. lift and some 33s...and can you believe the gas prices?!?! This might be my only time goin if gas is above $3.50 a gal. this summer

jdhallissey I really want to make a trip sooner but badlands is getting kind of well it is boring to me unless I have guys that have not gone. I can run threw the park in 6 or so hours.

Not sure yet, just testing the waters to see who wants to go when. I'm starting the electrical work on my brothers basement next weekend so I have to wait a couple of weeks now till thats done or at least waiting for drywall. March 26th I think is my first open Saturday coming up.
How does that day sound?

jdhallissey I have been everywhere in that park on 33's with 4in of lift. I made it up axle breaker too under my own power no winch. You can follow me all around that park and you will not have a issue. Now there are some rock walls you couldn't get up. But really green is not a easy trail by any means lol. Orange is actually more easy now then green.

I run red but that is not hard. It is one wall really. But you need lockers to get up that wall.

What trails do you normally run on there? Do you do the orange or red, or just stick to green? Looking at pics and vids I think I'm only going green for awhile.

Sounds good. I'd like to go before that April trip and try to make it out for that trip also. My brother wants to get his kids out there with the quads also but he is still trying to find another one for the lil guy and something for himself.

Badlands trip

I'm itching to go to the Badlands. But I've never been to an offroad park before tho and was hoping to go with an experienced Jeeper or 2. So who wants to go and when?
