Buenos dias SouthWest members!!

Just wanted to reach out to my area and the Texas Coastal Bend members as well. I'm looking to use Rally Point here really soon now that I got my rig up and going. Slowly upgrading and modifying every month. The end goal of my rig is to be an off-road mobile kitchen. I love to cook, especially grill, so natural why not turn my '17 JKU into a kitchen?!

So far....

AFE Power Magnum FLOW Pro DRY S filter (Soon to be a Momentum GT Pro DRY S Cold Air Intake in January).
AFE Power MACH Force-Xp 3" Cat-Back Exhaust System.
Rubicon Express Steering Stabilizer.
Rubicon Express Front Coil Spring Spacer 1.75."
Rubicon Express Oil Pan Skid Plate
G2 Axle 1.5" Wheel Spacer Kit

I do not plan on lifting my vehicle or changing out my stock rims anytime soon, so various spacers it is to achieve better stability and height.

I know there's not very many of us down here, but hoping those that are reach out or the OB members that travel down here from time to time reach out so we can schedule some meet ups and especially cookouts!!

Awesome!! There's a OB member from Corpus thats trying to start a monthly meet-up. I hope it happens since there's not very many of us down here in S. Texas. Hope to meet ya one day and maybe hit up a trail or just hangout and cookout somewhere scenic.

@AGENT-X @Hachi WELCOME!! Good to see OB member growth here in the Valley!! Ive been here for about 6 years now and just joined OB last year. Ive reached out to some of the other Valley members from the OB map, but no real luck on communication. No pressure though. Hoping to link up, hangout, go wheeling, and whatnot. I frequently hit up the Island and explore past Access 6. Its pretty fun crossing over from the surf side to the bay side. Great views!!

Exploring with others definitely eases your mind on adventuring out further. I always take another buddy with a rig with me. Some areas are pretty sketchy and can easily become stuck. Fun times though!! Haha!!

Just received your message Jose, I'll message you in there.
