my sentiment exactly. its how you drive not what you drive !!

my ZJ has been a little massaged. but I have yet to push it since I bought/built it.

Hey Nick! With all the rain we've recieved the past couple days, you might want to reconsider Redbird! Place gets messy.

We're still in. Bring my Father-in-law. He's contemplating selling his Harley & getting a Jeep.

Anyone know how sloppy it gets there with this much rain? Went n played on a little trail yesterday n made sure the winch is working just fine looking forward to getting really muddy but noticed last time I was up most of the holes ( it was dry there) are all rutted up from the big trigs.

We will be ok. I'm sure badlands will be sloppy as well. I prolly be there on the 5th as well... I need a change of scenery.

I don't think it will be too bad. There are plenty of areas that don't get too messy, quarry, dunes, etc. I'm sure the swampy area on the west side of the property will be pretty sloppy if you're into the mud scene.

almost bought one this afternoon. I need one. I go as much as I can and the used to go about once a month till I started working on the one ton swap in my wrangler.

now I still wheel as much as I can and my local club plans one a month big or small.

I would use it a lot if I had one.

I have one lined at to rent, pick it up friday afternoon.

Well, looks like I'm web wheeling this one. Was reminded that 3 weeks ago I promised to help my bro-in-law tomorrow. Awesome.

At least I'll get my Aussie, front bump stops & longer YJ brake lines installed tonight.

Save my pennies for the 5th I guess.

It's a private trail system next to the Badlands. Old owners personal property. Only 200 acres or so, but A LOT of saweet crap to do!! Huge rocks, creek beds, steep climbs, etc. Blows the Badlands away!
I love MI !!
