I'm pretty sure you don't need a helmet in your jeep. Seen a lot of no door vehicles out there running with no helmets. Goggles are very helpful though.

Can't say I've seen anyone with goggles / helmet in any kind of jeep. Dirtbike and ATV's yeah, but nothin on a Jeep. If you plan on getting covered in dirt / mud (or snow in this case), you'd probably wanna keep that shit out of your eyes.

Just trying to eliminate any doubt, but in saying "roof" , do you mean "protective overhead structure", such as a cage.

You do not need a safety certificate, Just an ORV sticker that is available down the road at the party store.

Just to clear things up a little bit,

*EQUIPMENT?
If the ORV is equipped with an approved roof [ rollbar ect ] and the operator and passengers are wearing properly adjusted and fastened safety belts, they will NOT need to wear a helmet.

*SAFETY CLASSES?
Any person who is under the age of 16 years old must posses a valid ORV safety training certificate and be under the direct visual supervision of an adult while operating.

*Where to look for safety classes?
Be VERY careful when selecting an ORV Safety Instructor off the DNR's website. Only a handfull of those listed ORV instructors on the DNR website have the training to even remotely be classified as a competant Instructor, most dont even own a ORV. If you and your youth really want to walk away from the ORV safety class with a hell of alot more information than you walked thru the door with, seek your training class from www.michatv.com

awesome! I love it when everything we have worked for gets torn to shit by the regulars.

I'd like to see a manditory height requirement. 8' at the entrance gate or something along those lines. maximum tire size of 44", maximum diff clearance of 20", etc.

If I were in charge of the mounds.....

I didnt put much thought into including or excluding certain tires, I just know that when you get around the 44" size they switch over to tractor tires. 49's and 54's can do just as much damage as the 60" tractor tires. the open diff's top it off nicely. if they had both tires spinning they'd never get to spin them!

Maybe it should be limited to non agricultural tires instead? Something has to change, they tear a new hole every weekend just about.
