I'm currently on my second jeep a 11' JKUR with some minor upgrades for the wheeling I'm accustomed to. My first was a 99' TJ, man do I miss the inline 6. I never got into the jeep club thing till I couple years ago when I was in PA. I really enjoyed the support and learning I experienced from that membership. So when I arrived back in KY I was looking for the same and was turned on to you guys by my jeep mechanic of 11 years. I just recently went out with a couple of your members and had a blast.
Welcome Nate....

Hello everyone. Just ran across this group on a internet search. I live in Madison county, and work in Georgetown. I currently drive a 2000 TJ, that at the moment is pretty much stock.

Nothing to crazy. 3in lift, probably 33's. I'm not looking to make an insane crawler but something I can have a good time offroading with. It's my daily driver as well.

Hi all, my name's Kearney and I live and work in Lexington. I'd heard of the site/group before but just joined the other day when I was searching for info on the Daniel Boone Backcountry Byway. I just checked it out today, from Slade I went through the tunnel and then went up Spaas Creek. I was by myself and took one wrong route, got in a hairy situation with a back wheel too far off the ground for my comfort but it was fine.

It was very wet but pretty mild trail overall, never came close to getting stuck 'til the very end because of some big ruts but never had to winch.

Anyway would like to go on some mild rides in the future, I really liked the DBBB. Edit: won't let me embed or link images b/c i'm a new user...it's a white '05 toyota 4runner V8 with OME 3" lift, ARB front bumper, warn winch, 32" skinny BFG all terrains.

Welcome to ky krawlers. I'm also a fellow toyota owner. I would also recommend not riding alone in places you aren't familiar with. Keep a look on the forum for up coming open rides you can join in on. Image

Hey, my name is Alex. You may see my Red 2d jeep sitting outside of Truck and Auto Extras. It is an 08 Wrangler on 3.5 inches of lift, that I have owned since September. I bought it completely stock and have caught the Jeep Fever of dumping money into it. I am from Eastern Kentucky and about 15 minutes away from Slade. I live in Richmond as I am finishing my degree at Eastern Kentucky University where I also played 4 years of baseball as well. Looking forward to meeting plenty of you all and becoming an active member. I am also here any time you all need any parts quick to make yourself mall rated or get some true off road equipment as well.

Welcome to the newbs!!! I haven't been here on in a while. You'll find this forum and its people a cool place to hang with. I'm in Mt. Sterling so Slade isn't far away from me. My boy Logan and I take spur of the moment rides occasionally through places like Spaas Crk, Sand Lick and just recently the Hells Crk area over from Schumacher Ridge. Like I said we are sour if the moment riders but will try to get a group of the newbies together and have some fun.

Hello all. Louisvillian here!

Name is Mitch (you'd never have guessed) and I drive a yellow 2001 TJ. I had a gray 5.9L ZJ for about 7 years and loved it...it was totaled by a driver not paying attention when I wasn't even in the car. :bang:

I bought a 2001 TJ, did the 5.9L Magnum swap, and am wrapping up some final fit and finish details about it now...but it moves! :pbj:

I just had a baby 2 months ago, so I won't be able to get out much this year, but I plan to take quite a few trips next year, even if they're just a couple of days each...I prefer a more relaxed ride, with maybe a few technical/sketchy sections, but nothing too crazy. Really I just enjoy the "camping where no one else can get" idea. I can't post pics cause it says I'm too new, but I will post some when it will let me.


Plans are to swap over the 12K winch from the ZJ when I get a bumper, put on a rear bumper, paint the MOAB wheels black or gunmetal, and then swap the duratracs over to those rims. And then drive it!

I am in the process right now of installing the following before I can go back to driving it daily:
-adjustable control arms (sourced from the ZJ)
-JKS Quick discos (sourced from ZJ)
-242 transfercase and SYE hack and tap/driveshaft

Already done is:
-5.9L Magnum swap with a bench tune from B&G
-AX15
-8.8 swapped/trussed
