Apr 3 - Badlands in Attica, IN - Van(s) Hangin' w/ Jeeps

Postby ihatemybike [OP] » March 8th 2010, 4:21pm

My wife's Jeep group is making a run at the Badlands Off Road Park on April 3rd. Since it's fairly close and well, I'm me, I'm planning on bringing Grumpy too.

Right now the group is mostly Liberties with a couple Wranglers and a Cherokee. They are a friendly bunch and have encouraged me to bring Grumpy out several times.

The park has stuff for every skill/vehicle to have fun with. Come on out, get stuck, get recovered. See what your van can do. Lift, AWD, RWD, matters not.

If you've never off roaded before, that's fine. Just let the group know and you'll be helped. Last fall we had a newbie in a stock Liberty CRD show up at a event in TN and we were able to direct the driver through everything that the modded Jeeps walked over. I found spotting for this Jeep to be quite enjoyable, because of the extra challenge that it presented.

Note: Aside from tow points front and rear, Grumpy will be completely stock running on the Pep Boys All Season tires that were on it when I bought it. I might remove the front bumper cover at some point during the day though, as it's quite easy to remove.

Thread on the Jeep site.
