4 wheeling in G.R.

first time posting but am wondering where there are any spots to go and put my 4x4 to use in southern Grand Rapids, northern Allegan County or anywhere else nearby besides Silver, my truck is still 90% stock so im not looking for anything too hard core. thanks in advance

Welcome to the boards.

I'm not sure of any locations. Have you checked with the DNR office or their web site.

We dont get too out of hand, but some of the spots have a few deep areas. We normally have about 15 trucks of various makes out there. So everyone gets thru without issue, but sometimes a little help is needed. We normally do a run in late Sept after the fall rain so we have good mud.

Hopefully I have my Expedition by then, otherwise I will run my Silverado 2500 again.

A good site you may want to check out thats local is Greatlakes4x4.com. Most of the guys on it are from Michigan, and though its a Jeep based site, all brands are there and welcome. I know theres a lot of guys on the west side, so youll be sure to find what youre looking for. Youre actually lucky to be on the west side. Wheeling in the east side consists of construction sites (ILLEGAL), or the mounds north of Flint.

that actually does sound like a great idea, i dont have the biggest truck, but she'll pull her own weight and if needed the weight of a few others.

Yeah i think it'd be sweet if we could plan something for next year though because i have no time at all until like December and you cant really go mudding/4x4"ing" in December all though there is always snow, which can be fun to drive in...Anyway we'll have to try and plan something, oh and Decurion, thanks for that site i didnt know about it and registered for it is a pretty good site got a lotta info thanks appreciate it.
