Ready To Hit the Backroads In OK

I am about to get my first ever Jeep, and a Trailhawk at that here in a week or two. Im thinking about going with the anvil. Cant wait to get out and explore some country trails! If anyone has any suggestions before I purchase involving pricing or any beginning mods that you can't live without let me know!

One thing you'll have to do is go to Disney and run around on the grand lake trails... took my TH there a few months back and had a blast. one thing I had to have is the 9 speaker upgrade.

Welcome from the SW corner of the state. Anvil is a great color choice!

Thumbs up

welcome .. btw, really surprised that your user name was still available .. figured someone would have snagged that one up when the site was first created.

Since you have it tied up, sure hope you follow through and buy one now ..

Seriously though, good luck in your search and if the TH is how you go ... it's a good choice. Oh and it looks really great in Anvil.

Welcome to JCC. I agree with @CoBound the 9 speaker upgrade is a must. If you are planning on spending time off road I suggest getting rock sliders of some kind. The RRO sliders are great with the exception of the powder coating. Do a search on here for more opinions on them.

Welcome from your Southern Neighbor! Sliders and Window Tint were my first upgrades! If you are on FB, look for North American Soft Roaders, it's a group I am affiliated with, and we have a couple of trips to OK planned. Other members took the K-trail a couple of months ago and we are planning a trip to Sundog Off-road later this summer.

... Almost forgot, the other addition I'd seriously consider is the Nav system... One thing that has been very useful (especially in Oklahoma) is the being able to pull up your maps and find those little hard to reach side roads or hidden ponds etc, I've got quite a few "4x4" tags in my saved locations. Not sure where abouts in Ok you live but finding good spots around Tulsa is hard and there are tons of little back roads that lead to some fun areas.

Thank you everyone for the responses! I'm counting down the days until I can get this thing out where it belongs and to see its full potential. I will definitely be checking out the FB group @zzjdzz. I have been out in that area before @CoBound. My roommate has a lifted wrangler and we go put that thing to the test pretty often on those good ol back country trails. Now, switching from a mustang, I actually get the chance to do my own trail forging! lol

Congratulations on that Trail Hawk.
You will have a blast. I second the Navigation for your Trail Hawk.
But not to rain on your parade:
Be sure to follow the break in period listed in the manual, That is the first 40 miles then then 1st 300 miles. It would not hurt to go longer on those mileage requirements.
Also if you are planning on serious off road/trails then I would definably extend out that break in period. If you have any doubts about this check out the trailer tow break in. Its more more stringent than the original 300. Depending on the trails the stress could be just as bad or worst on the vehicle than towing.
Just a thought.
