Michigan area BS thread

I have looked and I don't see one here. I know some of my buddies on JKO like to BS around so I thought I'd put one together. And being that I'm from Canada, it's a stretch calling myself a Michigander, therefore anyone else from the Great Lakes section is welcome to chime in on stuff.
Let's see if we can get it off the ground floor now.

What's going on everyone? Got any runs planned for the Christmas vacation? I know we got people out there wheeling and installing stuff. We need to get active on here.

Are the lions going to win today?

Lions will screw it up. It's what they do. Although right now they don't look too bad.

Regarding wheeling, I'll be doing something around Christmas. Anyone who wants in is welcome to come along. PM if you want to go. It'll probably be during the week though, on a Thursday or a Friday.

How are the 37s treating you?

Hehe, yeah, I guess you're right about that. We'll have to work on getting this thread going it seems.
37's are great so far. I've ridden them 3 drives now and one was at 60mph. No issues. I do have to sort out the air pressure. Previous guy had them at 35psi or higher. I'll take care of that in the morning. I'd also like to do a chalk test and then reset my wheel size with my superchips. Finding the time to do anything while I've had company all week has become a pain in the ass though. Tomorrow everyone is gone though.
See you tomorrow afternoon.

I keep getting set backs with my jeep so I haven't been out like I was saying I was going to.

If all goes well, it'll be ready this time next week and then I'll be going out probably the following week. I really don't have much choice as it has to be ready for SnoFari in a couple weeks and I need to prerun some trails prior to that.

So, if anyone is up for some wheeling, on a Thursday or Friday, I'll be going in about two weeks...

Yes, but not on the weekends. I have Thursdays / Fridays off so will be going then. This next weekend (my weekend) I'll be re-installing my front axle and hooking up the ARBs and some other assorted goodies. The following, I'll be heading up to prerun. If all goes well, it'll be the only prerunning needed until SnoFari, but otherwise I may be going up the 19/20 as well.

Hehe, yeah, it took a few tries to get it off the ground, but it's BS'ing now.
Got the infraction and suspension yesterday from the other site. This place is way better though. So, now the other guys in the GL area need to move over here.
Cheers!

Woohoo! Hey Jamie! If you have the others' contact info's, start spreading the word to abandon ship. Crazy Eddie is losing it over there.

Well hello guys! Happy New Year! Glad to see you venturing to the dark side!

I had way too much last night. I guess in my drunken stupor I told my wife I broke something on the jeep.

I didn't, but I guess I thought it was a good time to try to get an upgrade. I have no recollection of the conversation.

Moochie gave me an infraction. I guess he didn't like that I joined jkfreaks to see what Echo was doing.
Won't be too long before more get the ban hammer as well I'm thinking.
No sweat. This site is actually much better.
