Hello all. I am relocating from TX to the Chattanooga area in August. I’ve been trying to educate myself with the Chattanooga and surrounding areas to explore with my Bronco (whenever delivered). I’m looking for recommendations on fun trails, places, etc to take our Bronco once delivered.

There are some off road parks near Chattanooga and east of there in northern GA big time (https://www.trailsoffroad.com/states/GA). I haven't been to these either but its on my list. I am 90 miles north of Chattanooga and you can look up Winrock Off Road Park in TN which would be about 2 hours drive.

@Santos @vrtical Thanks. I have an account with that site and did some research on Windrock too. That is one on our list to visit. Just wanted to check in with folks that live there already and see if there was any place I’m missing. I saw some YouTube video about some trails in Signal Mt we’re going to look into as well.

@KnoxGnater @Santos @vrtical What’s y’all’s builds? I ended up with the Wildtrak but still contemplate switching everyday to a Badlands. I liked the WT leather interior, gloss black accents, and that it came standard with SAS and 2.7L. Mostly hwy driving I thought it’d be most fun with Sport rather than rock crawl and sway bar. Feel that the WT was just as capable for what I was intending on using off road for. Now that I’m moving, I’m curious if BL is more fitting for the terrain and the higher frequency of the off road use now.

We also went Badlands 4d 2.7 no sasquatch with optional wheels. My plan is to do a lot of traveling with the Bronco that includes off road destinations and I wanted the capable 33 ATs for long trips, I will have a different set E rated MTs prolly 35/37s for Winrock Park.

My build is 4 door 2.7, SAS Badlands in Area 51, tow and originally hard top (now soft with prep kit). I used to wheel a '06 LJ Rubicon with a 6" lift and 35's. It was fun, but daily driving was tiresome especially on long trips. I currently drive a '14 Platinum F150 (I used to make fun of people that had fancy trucks, but damn, I get it now). My bronco will be my sole DD, so I went Lux package 'cuz I'm spoiled. I went Badlands for the discos, and SAS for the goodies that come with that. I can honestly say I won't go 37s, or do many "hardcore" trails that require winch/37's, frame mounted rails, etc. I'd buy a SxS if I was wheeling every day. I went 4 door for the extra room for camping gear and the need to haul old people around. After the ride along at the Bronco event, I was amazed how nice they were on the road, and how stupid capable they are on the light trails they had set up. I do plan to run a tonneau cover, some kind of safari/bikini top and trail doors from March through November as weather permits.

We chose A51 over Antimatter due to how dark it was. It would be great if we still lived in Florida.

My wife and I spent an hour at Ray Varner Ford looking at Antimatter F150's and the Area 51 sport they had, finally landed on A51. The AM was juuuuust a bit too dark, but gorgeous in full sunlight up close.

@TNcoupe @vrtical @KnoxGnater What is the most reputable Ford dealer(s) in the Chattanooga to Knoxville area? Since relocating here I’m trying to gauge the better dealers around here. Im considering reserving another Bronco, completely different build than my current on order, just for a (obviously) later model year date. Maybe by MY24 things will have leveled out lol.

I have a feeling I’ll be getting to know the Ted Russel service dept pretty well…..but I hope not. I might need a break from the doom and gloom on this forum 😀
