Hope not, can't expect a huge crowd with only 2 weeks notice. Many people plan holiday weekend month's in advance.

Oh and does anyone know of anywhere I can drive this thing in branch or hillsdale county? I would like to try it out before next weekend so I don't feel totally lost! Thanks again.

I live in coldwater and was wondering if it would be at all possible to come over there and have you guys show me how to drive this thing off road or at least point me into some easy trails I can try it on? I know it's alot to ask but I can't seem to find anywhere over here I can drive it. Thanks for any help or ideas. This is a great forum.
My jeeps not half bad it has a straight 6 with a banks torque tube headers, throttle body spacer, custom dual intake, MSD coil a wires, and custom exhaust. Seems to be a nice jeep. Would lie to buy a winch for it...Anyways sorry to highjack the thread!

Bankrupt I dont think so. This is a working gravel pit that is working without the park. If we help in the process and get alot of people there the park will continue. Like you said before this is a rumor that you dont know the facts of. Dont continue the rumor by spreading in on the internet.

The more people that show up the better chance we have of the owners keeping it open full time. This could be the best thing to happen to southern michigan.

I'm just tryin to find out what is B/S and what is not.
I'm very glad to hear it's B/S, I would like this park
to be around for a long time.
I'm gonna do what I can to keep it open, I'll
be there Saturday, and I hope to bring
atleast three more trucks.

I've never owned a jeep before and believe I was told it was a jeep grand cherokee, is it just a cherokee, is there a difference? Am I just being a Noob dumb ass cause I sure feel stupid! I did have it checked out at planet power sports and it needs front shocks because the bottoms are worn out, a new center link because the ends are worn out and sway bar links cause mine are shot. Other then that its all good and they said it would be fine to drive next weekend and by the way several of the guys from planet power sports are coming out too!!One guy had a truck with 53 inch wheels and hydralic steering that looked cool as hell. Thanks for all the info and help. Oh yea I bought a reciever with a ring on it for my hitch what do I do about a front tow point??
