Now my Trailhawk is Trail Rated!

Yesterday I visited Turkey Bay over in the LBL place in Kentucky. My bro and I removed the air dam, then hit most of the primary trails and a few secondary.

Only once was I worried, when I drove through a huge mud pit and floored it to get out. I guess it didn't sink in when everyone and their mother said that the Silent Armor tires aren't for mud.

Anyway, the ride was smooth as heck and the hill decent control is just so funny. The last pic shows a crazy hill with loads of large loose sharp rocks and a stone ledge around the bend, but of course you can't tell!

Looks great! Did you reinstall the air dam after getting off the trail? I read it's a pain to put back on.

Great looking Jeep. Looks like fun out there. I need to hit that place up.

Here's the deal - It's easier to put on than to take off. Aside from the wear on the plastic tabs, my concern is this place by one headlight where the top of the bumper won't stay put. Pre-existing condition maybe.

You can expect some good trails, but don't come all the way from Japan expecting much more in the way of tourism!

Gas station food... YUCK.
