Just a nice day out poking around. Then again those casual wheeling days always get interesting......
I'm in. Do you want to meet at the Carls Jr on Tavern at 9, then head out to the airdown spot?

Was literally just there. Decided to take the Jeep out to Plaster City today, since my dads truck didn't have enough room for everyone. Went out for a day of fun and extreme exertion of our 2nd Amendment right, including testing out our new AR

Never been beyond Alpine in my Jeep, so it was an interesting experience, but the 2.5L motored along without incident. Had to roll the hazards, and literally got passed by a semi (with empty trailer) going back up the grade, but it did just fine.













(yeah yeah I know, poseur shots..)

Had a blast, and only managed to burn a half a tank in 185 miles!

SnowYJ almost got my vote. I appreciate the fact that he's in high school and a dedicated Jeeper We need more kids like him.

The only knock against his was that the body lift looks too big. There's just too much space between the fenders and tires.

Let me know when you're ready and I'll lead you down that trail. It's probably the hardest trail around here that you can run year 'round. Might have to wait 'till I get my new rig though.

Thanks. I sent Mike some info and pics yesterday for one of his buddies. I'm torn about selling it since I'm almost finished with everything. On the other hand, a fresh build would be a fun project. I'd like to think I wouldn't make the same mistakes again
