Co member check in

Just wanted to introduce myself. I bought my first jeep back in 2012. It was a jk sport. I wanted to see if it was the right fit for me, as I had never even ridden in anything quite like a jeep.

I loved it from the first day. I drove it everywhere. My wife would try to leave the house first or hide the keys so she could take it work. My kiddos loved going topless. Needless to say, the jeep was a hit.

Just one issue. Growing boys just made the two door a chore. Squeezing them through the door wasn't a ton of fun. And the lack of cargo space made camping tough. So we made a choice. UPGRADE!

Last fall we picked up JKU sport manual with a towing package. It's bare bones...for a reason. I promptly swapped out the wheels and tires, gave it a lift and added rail sliders, a rear bumper and seat covers among other things. All before I had ever been off-road.

This year I've ventured out on a couple of trials and I keep looking for an open weekend to get back up to the hills. Too much fun to describe.

Anyway, thanks for all the great info and maybe I'll get to meet some of you.

Craig

Welcome from Aurora! Be sure to keep an eye out in the CO section of the forum for trail runs. If you haven't already be sure to visit traildamage.com for a lust of just about every trail in CO. If you ever need someone to wheel with feel free to hit me up!

I may take you up on that. I don't have lot of friends into wheeling and going up solo is sketchy.

Yea, wheeling by yourself can lead to a bad situation. Be sure to check for runs in the local section, there are a lot of good guys/gals that wouldn't mind you tagging along on some runs.
