Took a rainy day drive and did a little more scouting for the "Overland" part of the Trans WI Adv. Trail. Also testing the route using the InRoute app.
This part or the trail is actually in Iowa through the Yellow River State Forest area.
I know, it's not fair to jump across the river for a "Wisconsin" trail, but we considered "fair" and decided against it


Gotta like these signs


Tons of fall rains meant there was water flowing everywhere, which made for several easy water crossings. (4 or 5 total)

And yes, I checked all of these before crossing

Easy roads, but great terrain and scenery.


Again, water, everywhere



Still scouting and making changes to the Chad Berger's ADV bike leaning Trans Wisconsin Trail.
Hoping to run the whole thing next summer with a small group

That looks awesome. How do you get to the Iowa part?

I was in PdC anyway, so I crossed there and came north. It's between Marquette and Lansing.

Chad has the GPS files on his site. The dropbox address shows his route.
Lone Wolf Expeditions: Trans Wisconsin Adventure Trail

I'm in the process of converting it into the InRoute app. (sadly, Apple IOS only) and am confirming the route, and making a few little changes in the regions I'm familiar with.

The Yellow River area is great for exploring and hiking, with lots of cool little roads and trails.

For practically a straight swap +$500 to me I ended up with an 04 F350 Lariat with the diesel engine. (got $5000 for the KJ and bought the F350 for $4500).

So no more KJ temporarily. We needed the truck to tow the XJ to races.

I'm going to keep an eye out for a roller and will go straight to a solid axle swap and a full cage so I can chop the roof like the BDS KJ.

The F350 has only 175k miles, egr delete done, new injectors, cat delete, solid frame, and being a crew cab there is so much room for the two of us, the 2 Dobermans, and the previous owner tossed in a bed tool box.

Actually forgot we still have a KK. Runs well, all stock, with 210k miles on it pulling a vintage tear drop trailer for my mother when she goes out and does vintage/antique flea markets.

She's looking to get a F150 soon and I'll take the KK once that happens. Which will probably be before Im ready to buy another KK.

Is it possible that one of the LCA mounts isn't as open as the other and is creating some binding? I had that happen with one of my shock mounts.

That's impressive, how much work have you had to do on the KK?

Replaced springs, shocks, radiator, water pump, balljoints, tires, brakes, and I believe that's it.
