The two places I go are Ocala and Richloam. Richloam is right by Brooksville, so it's the closest real trail riding spot near Tampa. There's also a couple unofficial places, like the mines in Hudson, and the sand pits north of Spring Hill, but I generally stay away from those.

When are you going to be lifting this thing? You must have most of your parts by now.

Everything is either in the garage, or ordered. At some point here after the rest of the parts come in, and I have a free weekend, it'll be jacked up to 4.5". I cannot wait...

Actually, I'll be staying on my stocker tires for a while. I do towing so I need the torque at the wheels. My plan is to regear to 4.10 while still using the stocker tires for most of my driving/towing, and then I'm thinking maybe retreads for 31 or 32" mud tires for wheeling. I'll keep the stock wheels for normal driving and throw the retreads on some soft 8's. Subject to change of course, but either way, it'll be a little while before I spend anything on wheels and tires.

Your wiring of your lights on the cross bars is great. i would almost think it would be even better to use a black wire so it would blend in better.
