Iíve never been truly wheeling before but would love to . My XJ is far from ready but could make the drive there . If someone would entertain the idea of me riding along Iím considering taking a couple days off to make the trip . Right now itís all just an idea but want to see if itís possible !

I am going to run trails Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. You are welcome to ride along on any of those days. Now that being said, if you are gonna drive an XJ I say drive some of the easier stuff at least one day. There are some easy trails that can be done with a small XJ and if you get stuck we will make sure you get back to camp. This is a pic of mine my first WF. Some aggressive 235/75/15 tires and tow points. I had a blast.

I reposted my response from the MWC. I thinks anyone considering coming but not sure if there jeep is up to it should do it. Even if you just hang out and watch it is way cool.

QUOTE=chuck619120;246623006]To this day I don't have a gas tank skid. It usually hits the shackles before it hits the tank. Now I did it, gas tank hole soon. Recovery gear(tow points) are required. Bolt on front tow hooks are easy and cheap. The rear is a little more involved. Easiest is prolly a hitch, but takes away ground clearance. Open diffs can do a lot of the trails at Badlands. As far as tearing it up, none of us want to but body damage and breakage is always a possibility. Any hard obstacles on the easy trails all have a way around. You don't have to do anything you aren't comfortable with.

So having said all that, I think you should come to WF. Ride with me or try out your XJ its all good. Some people come with a car just to hang out and party with like minded people. The fires are awesome and you can always find some one to talk about jeeps. You get to see some cool rigs too:

I’ve been looking at old pictures of winterfest and videos on YouTube all day certainly has me excited ! I don’t have an extinguisher or full side spare or most of the items listed yet but I may be able to scrounge some up . Broke as a joke at the moment but I always figure it out .

Try the junk yard for a cheap full size spare.
