Not a bad looking rig for its age those body styles were from 87-91/92. What year truck is that and does that have the IFS bull in the front or the solid front axle?

Last snow day one of the guys I was with called you to pull him out cause I did want to back down the hill and have all three trucks stuck out there, but then he got pissed when you asked for money, sure would have made it easier if you did, or if I had a winch on my jeep.

there are many other places around the area but a lot of them involve mud, im a local to the area, most people skipped class in high school to go muddin and just broke a bunch of stuff. I am friends with the gregory's so i know the off road park they've done a few cool things. if you just drive around the back roads you'll find stuff.I talked to the guys from twotrackers after their run last year and i guess they were hitting mostly seasonal roads. the powerlines are a touchy thing around here because you can very easily hit up horse and mountain bike trails.

i miss wheelin a lot hopein i can get a cheap rig for graduation from ferris before i move out to colorado for my internship. if anyone has a jeep of some sort for under 1000 in the area let me know. Though i didn't think about pickin up a lift kit for my outback, they make a 4 inch and you are suppose to be able to get 30's under it.

Im with Highrise on that one...Ill come out there if you cover my gas but if not then nope sorry...Im not that nice of a guy but if Im already out there then yes no problem I will do it in a heartbeat. My thinking is, if you bring your vehicle out there and get suck (which most people bring stock units out there) your were probobly doing something you shouldnt have and created your own problem becuse out at the lines it is very easy for stock vehicles to make it around out there if you are smart.
