Had them powdercoated because they came bare metal. Yes I know that it will chip and come off as soon as I hit a rock, but yeah

The only trail I know is potato ridge and I ran that last week, so if someone wants to lead another trail I'll happily come along

yeah nelson is huge. you could spend all day out there on the trails, just gotta be careful, theres a couple areas that are posted private. tons of mines and stuff to check out, you can go down to the river too. most of the trails are scenic, but there are a few more challenging ones lol

Yeah I've done the shetter bowl, rock bottom, and the triple threat. Probably my favorite trail system in the Vegas area. The drive out there kind of sucks, but def worth it

I'm thinking about rolling down to Nelson landing here in a few minutes...I could use some cool water.

Pictures?

And nothing like cruising down the highway when all of sudden you bog down to 2000 rpm... hoping for a bad fuel filter

IS potato ridge all bad now? I went a year ago but I heard the rain last fall changed things alot. It was a decent workout for the waggy...but i dont feel like having to crawl back under it for anything any time soon...so i think it'll stick to lighter stuff for a bit, haha.


Didnt go to nelson, just rolled around town all day with the windows down. She's runnin great, lemmie tell ya what. I'm def down for the ride this weekend.

On another note...I almost lost the waggy today. Some broad was paying attention to an accident, while I was turning left on a green arrow, and she came through the intersection. slammed the brakes directly in line with my passenger door. Woulda been bad if she hadnt looked up.

Not sure what is was like last year, but i would say the waggy would struggle through it. I'm at 4" of lift with 33" KM2, locked front and rear, and i struggle through the optional washes and scrap and bang some through the main trail too. I did see a H2 run it though, but I would say if you aren't ready to do damage don't go there. Almost snapped my rear driveshaft last time. Had to jack up and add rocks under my tires. REALLY made we want a tummy tuck

Hit up my favorite wheeling spot again this weekend Sand Hollow. If any of you guys want to get a little more hardcore with it, I'll post up next time we go. How can you beat "beach" lake-front camping, swimming, sand dunes, and rockcrawling all at the same time!! What's even better is you can hang out in the water while it's hot all day and then go night wheeling.



My pups...loving it!!

Was that blue Cherokee still broke in the middle of the wash... I told the wife that I would not be surprised to see it looking like that white Blazer here soon.

Weird. I made it up and over last time with no scrapes or bruises, just some tiiiight navigating in some spots. It wasnt as easy as when I'd take my wrangler up there 3 or 4 years ago, but it was by no means bad. I heard though that last fall it got washed out pretty bad.

That looks like an awesome spot. Is there any easy way to get there, or is it hard?
