Around here if you get caught, they impound your vehicle. They'll call it "criminal trespassing, and destruction of property" or more names for it. It gets you a fine, and possibly license suspension.... So be careful!

I would try hitting up the MA section (click forums and scroll down to almost the bottom and find MA) create a thread or scroll through and see if any catch your eye (area or close by) and ask around. worked for me . Not sure if you have done that or not but it's worth a try. Hope it helps

That is awesome, especially the 46 point turn. I gotta say your girl looks a lot concerned in that pic, almost looks like she was looking for the ejection seat actuator.

Finally got out and tested my JK. Had a blast at Moonlight Off Road Racing Park in Sullivan, MO. Nothing too hardcore but did some climbing and playing in the water

That must be uncomfortable with the lack of sidewall on those tires.

My friend said the same thing...and I didn't know what he meant either lol.

My wheels came out unscathed and these tires did a great job for what I put them through.
