37x12.50x17 Makes it reasonably street driveable. so I can go wheelin with it in the local mountains about an hour and 20 mins from here.
I had some old krawlers up front and the one sidewall failed so had to get some new tires for my precious

Art what are you thoughts on the plowboy rock bouncer buggy going to the 2014 KOH? I know the lakebed is your normal area for wheeling and you have seen them in action before do you think they have a chance at finishing the race?

Will be interesting to see how it does. The good ole south against the rest of the US, got to love good ole boys going at it
It might lead to a different style buggy for the year after. Big question does the Buggy survive the rock bouncing style wheelin. Also how will it do at top speed on whoops. It's a long race and some of the guys racing have been building buggies suited to the terrain's challenges for years. Save bet would be that it will take a few years for these guys to adapt to this kinda race

Seen plowboy in action. It's a crazy, tough built rig. I think he has a chance, just as much as any other rig joining the pack for the Hammers.

They would do well to spend atleast a week out there in fall, to get a feel for the place and get the shocks tuned for the go fast stuff

Well last nights lil Big Bear trip was a blast, flash floods the night before had remodeled the trail extensively and the wet ground and rocks made for some real fun.
About as close to East Coast wheelin as we can get over here, slip sliding and banging over rocks, way cool some real hooting tooting fun.

On another note

I always wonder why getting ready for camping is such a pain in the @ss.
Well atleast I got to recycle a rack I had and now have some much needed storage space



So Dusy and swamp lake here we come
