    I don't mind it, though I made sure to educate the wife on understanding how it works and that she needed to 100% attention to it when putting it in gear. I love my WK2 the amount of customization I have done to it matches that of the KJ. The front end is getting leveled over Labor Day.

    Which set-up are you going with?

    I am leaning toward getting Eibach's "All-Terrain" leveling kit. At 75k, the OEM shocks are probably sagging more than I realize

    Well I couldn't get in but I have the Rough Country 2" leveling kit for the front end. So more than likely on Vacation unless there is the scary chance I am getting my Mondays back to put it in. Same time though I found a steal of a deal on 20" wheels and tires off a Durango that I'm tempted to bite the bullet on and get then wait to do the leveling kit. Since for some reason having bought the leveling kit my Front end has mysteriously raised itself back up isn't sagging like hell when I first bought it. Not wondering if some of the rough rocking I've been doing leaving the apt has had a hand in it. Here's a rough idea of what the leveling kit would look like installed on the front.

    Finally went out and found the trail today! Awesome directions, it was easy to find. We ended up taking Cutoff Rd to the end and then going left, found a couple more good trails off of it (being careful to avoid the ATV ones!). Kept going on left after Cutoff and eventually found another trail on the left a mile or two down, had some real deep sand on it but it was a blast. That one was called "Castle Mound Road".

    @HoosierJeeper - Nice! Yeah, there are a lot of little trails up in that area, all the way over to Warrens. Years ago, it was possible to get from Sparta to Hatfield without touching much Tarmac- But many of the trails have been gated or bermed, and others have become really overgrown and narrow.
    I've spent many days of my youth in that areaW we used to camp almost every other weekend at Pigeon Creek when I was a kid; and in my teens we hiked, off-roaded, fished, hunted and rough camped that region quite a bit.

    Did you stop at Lake Wazee? It's an old mine just off Castle Rock Rd.


    @Birdman330 -That'll look good with some new wheels and tires too.:cool: I'm waiting to see what the Black Friday deals are on the Eibach Kit.

    I did park next to a '11-'13 GC last weekend that had a lift, looked to be a spacer lift about 2" (I'm guessing RRO) It also have 20" wheels and looked good, except for the street tires:oops:
