So, I might wait a couple/few years before doing anything major.

But I would like to find something just challenging enough to assure me that I do have the proper zombie apocalypse escape vehicle. Some of the roads up in the Santa Cruz Mountains I've motorcycled on are serious goat trails, so that might scratch the itch a little and at least get me in the woods.

This is one of the few times I think I'll wish I was back in Georgia. The type of roads I have in mind were a lot more common there!
I have already ordered my Rock Road Sliders, but I am a bit concerned about "taking lots of scratches and dents" from off roading. That doesn't sound good.

Well, I'm speaking from hearsay, so maybe it's not true--seems a little more likely, though. I know gravel rash could be an issue for cars just driving in the dirt (though the cladding on the Cherokee should cover that).

Here's an explanation on the Jeep wave:

We have two Wranglers ('87 and '06) and it seems like NorCal folks are not hip to the wave which is disappointing but we do it regardless. I've seen better responses with the Harley/motorcycle groups.

Oops I posted this in the wrong spot. I moved this to it's own thread here: Where to Install Sliders in San Jose


Hi Nor Cal Cherokee Peeps!

I finally have my Trailhawk and my Rockyroad Rock Sliders. Any suggestions on where to get them installed in the San Jose area? Once they are on, I am ready for my first offroading adventure if anyone else wants to join me (Warning! I have never gone offroading before).
