Cool NW Check-in

This subforum is more dead than a door nail. I know we have some other people from around the Northwest.

JK-forum NW section is pretty active, but the crickets are always chirping over here.

So go ahead and check in. Let us know if you are going wheeling, what you're latest modification is, etc, etc.

One can only dream I guess. I guess we are a bit of a rarity. Hope you guys can get that going. Nothing quite like 60 Jks showing up at one place just because you want to play in the mud and eat some hot wings...

Yeah pretty dead around here. I've never wheeled with anyone that is on this board, nor met anyone with a JK in the area. Well, except the guy I sold my hard top to, but I don't think that counts.

^^ I still haven't had a chance to check out Tillamook. What kind of wheeling are you into? I am planning on taking a trip sometime this summer.

I wheel with a few people from JK-forum and am a casual member of a couple different clubs here in WA, but would like to connect with some of the JKO crew.

I'm done in Oly, wheeled with a few other jeeps, but not many JK's. Been to Elbe a few times too, Hard to get the NW section going for sure, but maybe with summer coming, people will come around more. I'm not on here as much as I used to be, due to the simple fact it is so quite and dead.

Well, I am thinking about going wheeling next Sunday (June 2nd - maybe Elbe) and might be doing an install party in my garage on Saturday (June 1st). Anybody is welcome to either. I do recommend 35s because I like the harder trails.

gotcha.. Missed a great run this weekend. I cut out early to engage my kids in something more constructive than xbox, .. but a few of us went down Thursday, did a little wheeling Thursday and most of Friday. I left this AM and they were ready to go hit the trails some more. I like ASJC as it caters to a lot of different styles. Some stock runs sometimes, and some wheeling at walker runs too, ..

ps.. if you are free tomorrow me and my cousin are hitting walker about 11ish..

look for me in this.. doing this..

Running 285's on stock rims with 4 door springs and some small spacers for about 2" of lift, Have had no issues at Elbe yet, though have not run the Busy either. Have a steel front bumper but no winch. Also, usually run with my sway bar still connected and have no rubbing issues. Ill have to see about next weekend and see whats going on. If you do go to Elbe, PM me and Ill see what can happen. Might be able to get a XJ or another JK to tag along too.

we will likely be back up there next weekend. Yesterday was an epic day, we hit every trail at Walker... Rons Run is a mofo but managed it, and only had my wheels off the ground one time,





it was a mudbath up there for sure.. good thing my toyos are good and clearing mud.

Tillamook can be fun. My normal during the summer is trips to Naches and Liberty in central WA. I plan on attacking Rimrock this summer. I tend to wheel with a bunch of my old buddies that still live in the Seattle and Bremerton areas. I'm not much into mudding or sand, too much of a PITA to me to clean up. I stick to trails and rocks.
Last year my goal was Kaner and Shoestring bottom up, loop around to Milk Lake road and lilly pond bottom up. It was so much fun going that route I did it twice last year.
I am hoping to get away for a week or two this summer to do Rubicon as well.

I wish I was back in oregon. This Wyoming wind is driving me nuts. Never had a chance to wheel up there but hopefully on our summer vacation we will be able to do some exploring.

It is out near Cle Elum on the other side of Snoqualmie pass. There are many trails that are doable with your set up as long as its dry. There are some tight spots and its grown in so expect some typical NW pinstriping. A lot of the hill climbs are pretty steep and rocky, which would make them pretty interesting for an open rig. There are some harder spots, but should be bypasses. I would have at least another rig and some tow straps and you'll be fine.
