The Colony, TX (Dallas Area) my first wheelin pix!

Here are a couple pics from my first time out in my new to me jeep!! always wanted one and found a good deal.

2003 sport w/37k miles. one owner. dana 44. 4 inch lift w/33s.

to do list: freaking slip yoke eliminator
gears/lockers
front bumper/winch

i have a 2002 trans am and its a money pit. so what did i do, invested in another one!! best decision EVERRRR!! haha

bad thing: the tires are over 5 years old and they showed while i was climbing. couldnt grab ne thing!! i have 4 brand new bfg mt km2s sitting at discount tire that will be on the jeep by 6pm



This looked way steeper in person. the picture kinda makes me seem like a ***** lol. my buddies jk with a 2 inch lift couldnt make it up where he is sitting. he got hung up every time. but me, i made it!!! so freaking happy!!





first awesome(to me) flex!!



just a couple more to show the rear tires. i was pretty ecstatic about these shots lol





i didnt wanna try crawling up this with my ****ty tires. just didnt seme like a good idea. ill get it next time.

you enter at this point on the map. and just trailride into the back. there are a couple nice climbing spots. a couple hills to crawl over. and you can get all the way to the lake if you take the right trails... nothing special, but i live in The Colony, so its easy for me to access and have a little fun

Well I did some digging on some gov sites and the best I could determine is that this land is Frisco city owned and zoned partly for future parks, but mostly as flood plane. Looks like they have not done much updating since 2006 though and I could not find any tax record or what would resemble and address to prove any other ownership to the land on a district appraisal website.

So where does that leave us? Clueless.

The portion heading west and south of the pond belongs to City of The Colony. The rest of it is private property owned by:

GGH Kingwood Land LLC
3751 Victoria Park Ave
Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Tread Lightly. Privately owned and foreign at that; that's weird.

The area that this thread is talking about is 100% Frisco, none of that land is City of Colony (where I live) even based on this map (or any I've found). I know that the army corp of eng owns just about all the land around the lake that is left in Colony City Limits, and most left in Denton County around the lake.

However, being from that area of Toronto originally, I can tell you that there are alot of developers there, so that would explain part of the private property in Frisco that is zones for residential development in the future. Keep in mind, when you look at the map I originally posted that you can tell exactly where the flood plane and park land is - aka where nobody will ever bother you. Remember, there are no roads from Frisco easily accessing this property, and the Colony Police obviously have no concern since it is not their jurisdiction.

I'll be out there tomorrow at some point!
