trust me, i'm with you on that. The Cliffs is not always a swamp like that, especially after this summer drought.

There are other ways of adding belly clearance without lifting your vehicle off the axles...like 40s, 42s, 44s, etc

the other thing i need to get used to is having this monstaliner part of my flesh now. this **** will not come off. ive used accitone, goo gone, MEK, and air craft paint remover < that one was a terrible terrible idea. i even called monsta and asked how to get it off and they just laughed... they said its just a waiting game. good thing i work for verizon.... nothing like seeing peoples faces when i grab there brand new smart phone with gorilla hands.....

Hahaha yea... I had that **** all over me as well. I tried to get it off and did get some, with the MEK, but after that it just takes time. I think the last little bit came off the other day, and its been a couple weeks since I did my Monstaliner..

Glad you came to the realization that mud is the devil lol.. A lot of us IL IndyORV guys also hate mud and spend that extra couple hours driving down to the badlands. It's over 2x the size of the Cliffs and has some most excellent rock sections. The quarry is filled with rocksticles as well as a few sweet rock gardens by purgatory and at the end of green trail.

Next time I plan to head out that direction I'll let you know and you and the miss should come a long. You can also join IndyORV and stay posted when others are going. I would also like to try and make it out to Redbird sometime, not as much rock but it's a state park and about 10x the size of badlands.

Good job on choosing the misses over the jeep. Sometimes we need to prioritize humans over machines lol.
