Lol sounds that way. She had claimed the white one as soon as I pulled off trailer but we agreed she can have my daily tj long as I paint it pink first for her lol.
And by that time a jk should be had for reasonable as I am curious to get one for a daily just due to comfort and I do like the looks but I'd never part with my tj's. I just can't justify 30k for a new jeep when I have my daughter to take care of.

Good project for the winter. Is your daughter going to help wrench on it? I've had my boy working with me on my truck since he was about 3. My daughter helps a little but she mostly just wants to watch dad. Enjoy.
The other nice thing about this is that you get to keep your TJ in good condition and ready to hand over to the little one once she turns 16. Around that time you will be due for a new 2025 model year. That's how I did it with my wife in convincing her I needed a new Jeep now. An investment for the future. 10 years from now I can hopefully hand this over to my son. That will leave the minivan for the daughter in 12 years. I wonder if I am setting myself up for a sibling fight over this?

|crowe||Did some trading on it and it needs quite a bit finished up and general maint as well before it'll be ready but gives me something to do this winter and now I don't have to mess up my other wrangler w/ lift and taking offroad as it's very clean for older tj.|

There doesnt seem to be much around this area, surprisingly. You would think that an area like this has dirt roads and jeep trails all over the place, but nope. I have a stock 14 JKU, and I've only found a few places just to get into the woods.
You can go up past Blue Hole, there is a few side roads that I haven't checked out due to usually being by myself and having pretty crappy tires. There's the road that goes up to the Pinnacle fire tower, but there is absolutely nothing up there off of the gravel. There are what looks like ATV trails near the gravel road at some points, but from what I've seen they are too narrow for trucks. There's also the road that goes up to the Beauty Spot outside of Erwin...I don't think there's anything up there either besides the views.
There are a couple of places that people talk about: Bumpus Cove (which from what I've gathered is not the best place to take a stock Jeep), Stoney Creek, and Bays Mtn. I haven't been to any of these places. The Jeep club here seems to go to Bays a lot, probably just out of convenience. The pictures I've seen make it look kind of gnarly, and I've heard that 1) the trail is really short and 2) something about the Bays Mtn people really not liking the 4x4 traffic.
To be honest, I've been trying to even figure out where these places are, and I've seen many other people ask for specific directions, but never get them. Not sure why people are so tight-lipped about it.
