Who else is in Michigan?

I've found a few Michigan folks by looking around but some have not posted in a while.

Is there a way to list members by location?

Anyway, we have a few good places to off-road and many good places to camp etc in Michigan...for example the Silver Lake Dunes on Lake Michigan...and plenty of snow typically. Thanks.

GP in Flushing, Michigan (near Flint)

P.S. Let me know if this should be posted elsewhere. Thanks.

GP,

I'm in Oxford (N. Oakland Co.), on the west side of the town(ship). Driving an '07 3.7L Sport, but looking to pick up an '09 4.7L Sport U pkg w/class IV hitch when my lease term is up next October. Got a sneaking feeling that there will be some great deals next year - hard to imagine that I'll beat my current one but...

Just to add that I don't work for an OEM, so maybe will be OK by then.

Cool RailFan. I've got an 07 5.7L and love it. I hope to keep it for a long time. I just posted some pics on the Off Topic ... Matching Face to Name.

GP,

I am in Commerce Twp/Walled Lake, about 35 mins from Detroit

Currently have a '07 Sport 4.7L S pkg., unsure what i will do w/ it at lease end (next summer). Like railfan said, there probably will be good deals towards the end of the model year

- Will

I am here in Swartz Creek. Have a '08 3.7 Rocky Mountain that is basically the family/wive's vehicle. Don't do much off-roading, just the trails up north to get to fishing/hunting spots.

Thanks for introducing yourselves Wns808 and SCJeep. Nice to "meet" you.

I don't plan on doing much offroading either. I just want to keep going in the snow...but I would like to try Silver Lake dunes sometime. I saw a post from a Michigan guy who did the dunes there with his Commander but he hasn't posted since last July. My wife is a retired school teacher...taught at Swartz Creek.

Maybe someday my wife and I will take a trip out west and we can try some mild rock climbing or backroads.

GP...

Playing in the snow and ice

Got an 208 Limited with 5.7 Hemi and QD-2. Absolutely love it--has not been back to dealer except for oil changes
Have had a riot in snowy roads that we have had. Works much better than my 1997 Wrangler. Live in Chesaning, Mi and have 20 mile back road commute to work three times a week. Usually are on roads before salt trucks and plows get going. Get 18 mpg on regular Love the commander

Yah, gotta love it. I'm not far from Chesaning. I'm south of M57 about 4 miles a mile east of Montrose.

I am from Shelby Township (Macomb County), I drive an "06 5.7 HEMI with QDII. I love it! I went to Silver Lake sand dunes with my XK and had no problem going where the wranglers go. Maybe we can set a trip to Mt. Morris (The Mounds offroad) in Davison before the year ends.

HI Drako... did I see some pics of you on the dunes? The Mt. Morris Mounds sound good to me. I only just recently heard of it and have not been there. I'm still stock...is it outrageous or can we handle it? Planning on some upgrades but won't be all on for a few weeks.

How 'bout you other Michiganders? Want to do The Mounds?
