I have Toyota and I can't attend a Jeep Jamboree. We're all 4WD enthusiasts, so we should all go wheeling together, what the hell?!
If Rich wants to have a ride with only Rubicons, then let him. If someone else wants to have a ride of the "Blue Jeep Owners Club" that I see listed under so many signatures, then go ahead.
Whats important is that this attitude extends out to working together to keep our public and private lands open. This club won't work with that one, ATVs won't work with us who won't work with snowmobilers...
The reason Rich, or any club ride for that matter, may have certain restrictions or requirements to attend a ride is due to difficulty of the road/trail. OFR for instance: If you are on 31s and unlocked and no winch, you really have no business being out on that road. You may be able to make some forward movement, be tugged through most of it and most probably break something. If you are in a group of 4-5 and you're all friends and don't care about getting out of there after dark, when you started at 10AM, thats fine,drag your ill equipped rig through the entire 4+ miles. Just please, do NOT go off the road to go around obstacles you can't drive or be dragged over.
Now, take that same rig and place it into a ride with 15-20 rigs. If all of them are on 33s and running lockers, its still going to take several hours to get all of them through the 4+ miles of OFR. Put a rig on 31s, no lockers, etc into the mix and you're adding several hours to the day. People who have done the work to their rigs and can drive the entire road are now waiting while everyone works to drag the ill equipped rig through the length of the road. Its pretty much just common courtesy.
Doesn't matter whether its nice or not, its simply the way it is.
and these stupid arguments are what keep us all divided and losing the battle to keep our roads open.
Thanks Dave you get it.
wow man, way to get your nuts in a twist. the guy likes his rubicon, i like mine, so i emailed to attend. no big deal. theres hundreds of runs going on at any given weekend, find another one to go on. theres hundreds of threads here requesting pictures of only jeeps with a 4" lift and 33s. go cause a ruckus there because you have a 3" lift and 32s and want to show off your jeep. you don't have a rubicon, and theres nothing wrong with that, i'm sure your rig is more capable than mine, but why even look at a thread titled "rubicon owners trailride"
This guy gets it and He coming .I can do a Jeep trailride anytime I want But I wanted to do a Rubicon owners trail ride. If Joe dirt wants to do a trailride
then join him on a trail ride or do your own.
I don't have to do this run our club runs once a month but I wanted do
something just for the Rubicon people.
Look let me spell it out for you this is not an April fools day joke.
It is a real trail ride for Jeep Rubicon owners only. I you want to go on a
run have your own run don't make fun of mine and all the work I have put into
it. Grown up! If it was just a Jeep run I would to many allready.
And Yes I do own a Rubicon.
This has nothing to do with the club or a April fools Joke.
