Unfortunately my leaf springs are more used up than my brother's ex wife, so I can't do any wheeling until early spring.

1999 XJ - Finally on respectable tires.
1998 ZJ - I'll show you my Niner if you show me yours.

It was fun.. really slick.. I slid sideways into a tree and added some personality to my Jeep. I managed to almost roll My Jeep on an easy trail at night..And gave my winch a workout pulling people out..including my buddy in his cummins diesel ram. The camp ground across from the park is turning out awesome. We will be back next year for sure. Doing the Badlands on the 5th.. the the cliffs on the 12th I think next.

not too bad.. the tree pushed my door handle in and it slightly bent my door. the door handle wasnt working at first but i pushed on it a litlte harder and it started working fine. I got a stripe down the entire length of the door thats about 1/4" wide. not something i can just buff out.. its going to require paint.. but ive been meaning to teach myself how to repair that bad of scratches.. nows as good of time to learn as any..

nice!!! night runs seem like fun always wanted to be going through a forest with all lights on. It would be creepy at the cliffs, they should have a halloween thing on the main trail where people jump out and scare you. kinda like a haunted hay ride.

yeah.. thats what they did at redbird.. except.. they need more volunteers.. only had like 3 spots where people would jump out at ya and pound on your windows. we need a night run at the cliffs 2 months ago and had a blast! the thing is.. when youre doing a night run in the forest.. you DONT use all of your lights.. you end up blinding the people around you. you basically use your fogs.. and low watt rock lights under your vehicle. i will definitely do more night runs next spring.
