Here are some pictures of the Jeep Wheeling today... I thought i did pretty good on Satruday. I didn't break anything and no one go hurt so i guess you could call that a good day...

Anyways, here are some pictures:

you guys have any plans to lock that thing?

how many years apart are you guys? my brother and I are 4, and there's a good chance he'll end up with my current ZJ in a few years when I get a JK as well.

hopefully some weekend over the summer Ill make a trip down to TSF and wheel Browns Camp with all you Oregon guys.

no broken parts, and no body damage is a solid first trip.

unfortunately trail damage eventually will catch all of us.

Ummm... me and my brother are almost 6 years apart... he will be turning 22 soon enough here... But i wont be locking it anytime soon. I dont have the money for that kind of stuff. At the moment it is my daily driver so if anything bad happens by doing intense stuff while wheeling, im screwed for transportation :P

And yeah man, come here on a weekend and i'll be down. My brother just bought his lift and his tims and tires so he'll be set in about 2-3 weeks. Can't wait to be helping him out with putting the lift on!

Thanks! I have the perk of being able to use my brothers camera. I definitely plan on getting my own camera at some point but that won't be for awhile.

Well, by the long run we did yesterday at browns camp, i'd say get them. We were running in some really sloppy mud for most the time and at the end we ended up having to go snow wheeling... It wasn't just normal snow, it was sticky and wet so it was really heavy. I have a couple of videos to link to that I will show you but they did awesome. I almost never slip (besides the snow/ice) and they have really nice traction.

I don't really know much about tires but if they can get me through as a beginner offroader, i think they're pretty good. They also do really well on the road, they aren't loud and it rides really smooth...

Here are some videos of the snow wheeling we did. I will be uploading some of our GoPro videos later but for now, here are the snow ones.




Lots of fun... My brother was actually stuck beforehand and then a toyota that we saw earlier drove along and got him out and then john got me out... There were many chains of getting this person out and then that person and so on. It was definitely a lesson to be learned and an adventure if that is what you wish to call it.
