dickhead snowplow drivers. my neighbor said i could use his snowblower tho. i'm gonna wait until the plow is coming close to my neighborhood, then put a big *** pile of snow, right in the middle of the damn road. maybe with a big rock in it.


"The stoke was palpable..."

good grief, just buy the Rubicon.

Bozeman here. I'm gonna be looking for some wheeling places when the snow melts, so I'll definitely check back in here.


Anyone else a student at MSU?

Helena checking in. Glad to see some fellow Montana Jeepers here!

Here's some older pictures of my XJ. I've added quite a few mods since then.

Anyone wanting to wheel together, just PM me.

So about two weeks ago some of us tried to go snow wheeling around here locally (bozeman) and no matter where we went everything was closed. Not sure if it was because of the avalanche danger or what the deal was but severly irritating. Anyway hope everyone had happy holidays.

Do you mean locally as in Bozeman? Did you go into the Bridgers? There is always some good Forest Service trail action on the North end.

There is FS access near Bridger Bowl, across the road. It was open last year, up until spring, then reopened in the summer. I took my Mtn. Bike down it a lot.

So where is all the good wheel'n in Montana? I ask because I'm from Rapid City South Dakota.
My job takes me all over the place. Today I was in Billings, and then headed south towards Cody, and ended up in Worland.
Looked like a lot of rock ledges and steep climbs. But the rock looks really unstable, and crumbly.

Anyhow, looks like there'd be a TON of rocks. Do you guys have an ORV park? Or do you run local trails that are approved by the Forest Service?

I'd love to load up the TJ and crawl some new terrain in Montana. Depending on (or course) which side of the state has the best wheel'n.

Ya we tried exactly where your talking about, everything was closed. From everyone I talked to and know with conections said it was due to the high avalanche danger at the time.

The wife and I stopped over night in Sheridan on our last road trip. It is a really nice place.

I was just in Sheridan at a interview with Decker Coal Company. Didn't get the job, but I wouldn't have minded to live in Sheridan.
I like the Bighorns. I have explored a bit of the area south of Buffalo. My favorite camping spot is at hole in the wall. West of Kaycee.

In the Billings area there are some great trails in the Pryor Mountains and the Beartooth Mountains. All the Beartooth trails will be closed until the snow melts. Some Pryor trail can be accessed in the winter months, but are dependent on snow amounts. Both ranges offer great scenery. The Big Horn's is a great place to wheel, lot of awesome trails. This summer Jeep Jambore will be in Big Horns think in July.

Makoshika State Park in Glendive has some great trails in the badlands. I haven't been on the actual trails, but I have been all over the park with a fire truck.
