Come out and play on some trails and meet some folks on Sat; plus benefit the kids.

Main upgrade I would recommend is some front swaybar discos; if you don't already have some.

Don't know; according to some folks who have been, there is the race track, and trails from mild to rock crawling.

Supposed to have some food as well. I figure what the heck for $20. Get out and meet some folks and spend a couple bucks on a good cause.
Wife says she wants to do the buggy ride also!!

Pretty good turnout.. there are some pretty good obstacles in the park actually.
We didn't really talk to many peeps; most were just out riding and enjoying the trails.
Once the wind and dust started kicking we called it a day.

Apparently John Deere is making a Jeep lift now. . Know before you drive through water!

I needed about 2-3 more inches to get up the last step.. or a front locker
It would just start to edge up then the other tire would unload and spin..

So close! I don't feel too bad.. I watched a built Jeep buggy not make it, and a Toyota break a D60 on the same ledge!

Decent flex tho!

Wish I could. I haven't been feeling well lately and unfortunately it's kept me housebound. But I am very excited to get out and play.

Not a bad looking WJ there texlurch. I like my KJ, but sure would like a WJ for a SFA rig. How do you like your duratracs on the rocks?

They work real well. Did Chinaman Gulch, aired down to 18 psi.

Cool, I'm looking at them, Cooper AT3's, and Cooper STT's in 31x10.5. Obviously not going to be a hardcore rock crawler with IFS on a Liberty, but want something that will handle some of the rock we have in this state on moderate trails, and be a DD.

If you're feeling better tomorrow, a couple of us are hitting some easy to moderate trails north of woodland park.
