Default Silver Lake Sand Dunes Trip Overview

Got back from Silver Lake a few days ago and had a great time. Me and some friends were there from the 20th to the 25th. The Jeep performed very well, gave me a few surprises. Last year when I went there, my jeep was completely stock, thus I could not go as fast as I wanted to due to some of the large woops in the sand. I also didnt take it up test hill last year.

This year I was able to conquer anything I threw at it, did test hill multiple times, did a few races, and drove it through some deeper water that had accumulated from all the rain we have been having. Since last year, I now have a 3" lift on the jeep, winch, some bigger bfg at tires and a Trans cooler and temp gauge to monitor the Trans out on the dunes. It was a lot of fun, and I managed to drive from Detroit there and back and enjoy the dunes with my DD with only breaking a caliper bolt.

I also saw quite a few of you guys out there with the logo sticker. It was a lot of fun, I only get to do a few wheeling trips a year due to work, school and everything else. Already looking forward to next year!


This is my first time making it up test hill, no engine mods really. Just the 4.0 with some good maintenance and a back cat.
