Hi, I have been 4 wheeling since the early 70s. Got my first real 4x4 in 1976 which was a 1949 Willys CJ2A with a 153ci 4 cylinder Chev motor. 5.38 gears and replaced diffs with Danas with posi f/r. Was a formidable off roader. Had a new 79 Chev Short Box lifted with rear locker then a Landcruiser FJ Diesel then the plethora of 4x4 trucks, Now own a 2008 JKU Rubicon. Am impressed with this unit as compared to all the other make believe 4x4s out there today. Look forward to meeting as many of you as I can. Taking son, in his JK, on a nostalgia trip from Eagle Lake off the Williams Lake to Bella Coola highway then due south over the Chilcotin Mountains down to Lillooet BC. This will happen in July hopefully before fire season. Wife and I were part of a Lionsgaters 4WD Club trip in 1980 that did this. Lastly I was a founding member of the same 4x4 club that is still around today from 1976.
Keep the drivetrain facing the dirt and happy 4 wheelin'

Update: We never made the trip but it is planned for this summer of 2020. Son has since bought a 2016 JKUR and I changed my gutless V6 3.8/6spd to a 2016 LT Chev 355hp / Chev 8spd auto along with MC suspension and new driveshafts. Just getting it going now. Some more friends, from Texas, will be travelling with us in an LS powered JKUR and a totally radical 2020 JT Gladiator. The trip plan is still the same and with this current COVID around we now have plenty of time which is what stopped us last time. If anyone else is interested we could take a couple more and it will be away from home for at least 7 days. Fuel is available on Gang Ranch and the local native bands but you still require some extra range. Terrain is easy, difficult, swamps to cross, not a lot of mudbogging though but lots of side road trails. You run on the top of the Chilcotin ranges in from Eagle Lake and come out Gang Ranch then can go to Pemberton offroad. Choice of return home is back over Anderson Lake to Cache Creek then #1 back to Calgary or down the coast hiway to Vancouver then back. Equipment list will be available once we near the takeoff date which is in late July.
