Re: Gots me a Jeep.
You leave a lot open mm253. Besides what your Jeep already has, what kind of wheelin' are you planning on? Daily driver with light trailrunning? Rock Crawling? Mudding? I've been setting my rig up as a trail/mud rig that is highway legal and comfortable (in so much as a CJ can BE comfortable on the highway!). There are some guys on here with some incredible rock-crawlers, and some guys that are into complete restos. Let us know what you want to do, and we can help!
I'm originally from Washington, and though my family moved to Alaska nearly 20 years ago, I remember a lot of the trails my father and I used to drive together. I was from Grays Harbor (the Wishkah valley) and we used to go up to Grizdale a lot. We also spent time around Forks, Lake Ozette and Owl Mountain. Washington is littered with old logging roads, and they make for some good trail running. A lot of mudding too. I've got a cousin who has three Suzuki Samis in that area--her mudder, her husband's mudder, and their daily driver. Her brother (another of my cousins of course) used to have a '69 GMC on 44s and later a Nissan KingKab with 38's and a Ford 302 under the hood. Lots of good wheeling in your area, best bet would to be to hook up with some folks your first time out to show you the best (and legal!) spots.
Welcome to the board!
