How is the Mounds ? Do they have a good trail system or just a few places to play ? I haven't been there since the late eighties.

Default Mounds first timer

I have never been to the mounds before and was thinking about taking my Grand Cherokee out on its maiden off road voyage is there any thing special that I need other than the ORV sticker? I heard something about a spark arrester?

That's what I thought but I couldn't find anything specific on it. Anything a first timer should bring? I am a little nervous taking her out for the first time. Not sure if I am going to make it for the Turkey day event or not. I have one issue I am trying to correct before I take her out.

If I can get this transfer case shifter linkage to quit popping out I am going to try and make it. I put a new bushing in and re adjusted the linkage rod after the lift was installed and it still keeps popping out. I think I am going to get some steel rod bend it and drill small holes on either end and use washers and cotter pins not sure what else to do.

Do you have a link to this that's a lot cheaper than the Novak setup that I found for 160. I can make something but I love the fact that this setup is attached directly to the drive line vs the body.
