You and all this wheeling you do is very upsetting to someone such as myself that only RARELY gets to wheel. I am happy for you though!(Jerk - lol)

Yea, the amount of granite is amazing up here. And while there are a few offroad parks up in ME and endless amounts of Class VI roads to explore, there isn't much of public land available to wheel with hardcore stuff, but there is a good share of private property that is a lot of fun.

Hey, thats what its all about to me! The amount of time and $$ I've put into building this rig makes it all worth it with the time I spend off road so I try to go as much as possible! Plus now that I have access to a new 'playground' within 20 mins of my house, that is probably one of the most fun places I've been to, the amount of time I spend off road will only increase!

Bored today so went out to the local club spot. I did film a good amount today, just need to go thru it and see what kind of vid I can put together.


Call this 'Option C', waay more intimidating in person. Gave a few attempts, just could get the tires to hook at the bottom, since the rears were a bit mudded up. I'll give it a try some other time out tho.





Back out on another trail. And a few fun climbs...












Heading out thru the rock garden.

I like how you actually post pics of wheeling your rig.

Haha, yea man, it's what the whole build is all about! I love getting out in the woods to play, as even a bad day on the trail is better than sitting in the house.

I do like wrenching, and have done a fair amount of it in the year I've owned the rig, but I'd rather be out wheelin' and get some pics/vids to share what I do with it.

Got the Jeep all packed and will be heading out soon for a weekend of wheelin', campin' and drinkin' with my club!

It is really hot out there now and possible thunder showers tomorrow, but hoping for the best and I'm sure it'll be a great time regardless.

Pics to follow on Monday, as I should be getting back home Sunday night.

Awesome weekend! Couldn't have asked for any better conditions. No rain hit us, even tho there was towns in the area that got dumped on, so the rocks were nice and grippy.

Not too many pics taken of me (no surprise there) but here is what I snapped and the camera was dead shortly after as I forgot to charge it so no pics from today.

I love those kind of trails! Rocky under a nice canopy of trees. I'll have to get up that way some time.

Thanks guys! Glad I at least got one cool pic of myself from the weekend. A lot of great photo ops, but no one taking any.. That place is one of the best wheelin' spots in New England. Ultimate Adventure was actually up there in 2010. And they have the trails marked that they took, so it was cool to do the loop that they did!

Here is a short clip of myself going up Pete's Pass, which still doesn't do it justice. And it was much easier since we hadn't had any rain in weeks.

Little bit of an update:

Thursday my pair of MC front uppers came in to complete my set of control arms. Got them on that day.





Friday my Rain Gear Jeep Cover came in just in time to cover it up for the passing storm, as I decided to take the bikini top off for the rest of the summer before I destroy it. Last time out I put a 3" tear in it. And shortly I'll cut up the old soft top I have and make it into a nice trail top for the summer month and keep it covered up up the new cover.
