40... been wheeling since I was 10 on bikes, trikes and quads... Got my first Four wheel drive when I was 19... A 1986 GMC K1500 with a 305/SM465 and stock 10 bolts w/3.08 gears on 35" BFG Mud terrains... Ask me how many 10 bolt rear ends I blew out before I went to a 12 bolt (before I knew anything about 1 ton axles)... Oh yeah put a late 60's 350 in it along the way as well... The old truck is still alive (Not well) but alive at least.

If we're talking about more than 4x4's, I had my first go kart & ran trails outside of Rose City when I was 12. I had a dirt bike & a couple buggies besides 4x4's. That puts me up to off roading for 44 years.

52 in April, In 1971 I got the family/farm jeep CJ2A 134 4 cyl and at ten years old I might have been a 1%. In 1977 I bought a Chevy Scottsdale 20 put a 4 inch lift, cut out fender flares, and 35 inch Monster Mudders, oh yes and a pipe bumper made in welding shop class. For almost 3 months I was the tallest truck in town, then some a hole my best freind got a 78 ford Bronco and 40 inch Ground Hawgs.

Just turned 27. Bought my ZJ in 2005, lifted it in 2006. Just recently got rid of it, no more wheeling rig for a bit while the wife and I get our lives on track financially.

Im 43 been wheeling some thing since I could walk. Didnt get my first 4x4 untill I was 19, a big k5 blazer.

I remember the dunes back then. You could drive out about 300' to a sand bar if your truck was big enough and you knew where to go. Bon fires,camping, beer, and traffic going in all directions. It was crazy.

Nowhere in your age range was alcohol or bonfires allowed in the OHV area of the dunes. Now if you are saying you used to get shit faced at camp, that's different.

45, at 16 my first vehicle was a 73 Scout II with bald tires and bad axle U joints....didn't wheel as much as I walked looking for someone to pull me out. Previously spent many hours on a tailgate tooling down two tracks in Gladwin, some of my favorite trail riding memories!

My 3rd vehicle when I was 17 was an 89 wrangler that the old man drug home from the junkyard. Probably because he was sick of finding stuff stuck to the bottom of his cherokee. That was 2001.
