    Awesome! Thanks for all the awesome ideas! Im open to a weekday trip too. Fridays are good for me too. I basically only know what I've seen in videos and forums so I am eager to learn.

    Hollister seems pretty ideal.

    High lakes sounds cool too. I'd be up for a drive to get there. It's half the fun!

    We can prep at the Chico mall prior to the trip. I hear they have some speed bumps we can test the flex on.
    Looks like I'm locked out. Why?

    Awesome. Anything I should be preparing to get? Like any essentials? The only thing I've done to the Jeep is add a cell phone booster. I was thinking to get a cb.

    I will let the more qualified wheelers from above respond to the needs and wants. For me a CB was nice just so you can hear all of the heckling going on. Cell phone don't work up at the high lakes.

    It really is a fun time up there and with Crip as a guide you will feel like you have been wheeling all your life. He makes it easy!

    For sure grab yourself a CB that way when you come out on a run with us pull have a way to communicate with everyone, I'd also look into picking up a set of C gussets. Other than that of leave it as it is until you know what direction is want to go in. Your Jeep as is, is pretty capable. We can hit up some OHV parks, have some fun and then you'll have a chance to check out everyone's rigs and see some of the stuff in person.

    If you don't have it, start looking around for a quality recovery set. You can but the parts separate or get a package. You'll want a tow strap at least 15k pounds, a couple shackles, and some quality gloves. We will all likely have it too, but it's nice piece of mind to know everyone can recover. CB is safe, and fun. If you haven't guessed we all talk quite a bit . Other than that we'll have air for you to air up, and you should be good.

    Does June 12th work for everyone? It's a Friday.

    June 12th works for me!

    I will look into getting some of this stuff before....

    - CB Radio / Antennae : I'd prefer something simple that is easy to install
    - recovery set ( recommendations ?)
    - C gussets ( no idea what those are , need to look into )

    It looks like 07JKSahara can't make it this time. Does anyone else still want to go to Hollister on 6/12 or so? I have been itching to get out and drive! I got a cb and recovery kit now too!

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
