Are we going to have an official event any time soon? We need get things going in this region. Maybe a snow run in December? I think if people at least post up with runs thery are planning on going on we will be able to meet eachother and have a lot more fun.

I meant WTF do you mean by Good luck? putting a run together is easy, keeping it small is harder.

And does anyone have a good suggestion of where to go? Up around Snoquamie(sp?) or Stevens Pass ????

There should be by then. I'm assuming he meant Dec. 18th since Nov. 18th is a thursday. You guys are going to make me drive 3 hours.:rattle:

Yea I meant dec 18th Sorry for the confusion I think that there should be snow by then. Most all of the ski areas are open.

Howard is doing a liberty run on the NOV 20th if your interested.

I guess I will put in for that day off. I don't have my front two hooks yet. Ordered them yesterday. What other equipment would I need that I might not have on a virtually stock XJ?

That could be a long list :)

If we are in the snow, I would plan on at least tire chains. Most of the others responding on this post are reasonably well equiped with spare parts, jacks, etc, etc.

As always the most important things are tow points front and back. CB and your own tow strap are well worth it. And always bring plenty of food and cloths for the weather.

Protection is always what gets suggested first on the list!!

Alright lets set it in stone.

Saturday Dec 18 upto Jacks pass.
You know any where go to meet??
Maybe a McDonalds (easy to find and some people will eat breakfast there)

As far as equipment
Recovery points
Fire extinguisher
First aid kit
Recovery strap
Extra clothing and food(you never know when you will have to sleep out in the woods.
Spare (full size preferred)(jack is also helpful but most of us have spares)
CB (highly recommended but not mandatory)

And as far as you stock cherokee is concerned. Last year I was able to out do a Toy on 32 BFG MT, with my balding street tread. Just make sure you have recocery points front and rear and you will be just fine.

I am going to start a new thread on this snow run.

I will put in to try and get the 18th off. A little late now, but I will try.

Tomorrow UPS is supposed to drop off a present of safety toys to toss into the Jeep

BUT, I still need to install some front tow hooks (on order) and pick-up some chains. I have a CB (someplace) that I have had with the intents of installing in three different vehicles. The CB outlasts the vehicles. The vehicles keep getting totalled. I think the only thing I need is to come up with a good mount and find all of the hardware. Tomorrow I might dig the crap out and head up to the CB shop in Fed. Way.

Anyway,
Rear Recovery point :star:
Fire Extinguisher :gag: Could be better quality
First Aid kit :star:
Recover Strap :star:
CB :speepin: I will get around to it. Just got to figure out where to run all of the dang wires.
Rear Recovery Point :hang: But they are on the way.
