I have an oem transfer case skid that wont work with my 3 piece iron rock cross member. It's a little bent up but should still bolt up rather easy.

$20.

No worries man. It was a blast. I liked it better than Bridgeport, in a lot of aspects. It isnt NEARLY as well maintained (no map, no marked trails, some trails were over grown and barely noticeable etc.) but that kind of adds to the expeditionary appeal. It has a lot more in the terms of long leisurely trails instead of just obstacle after obstacle then onto the main road. This place is more like a ride through the woods, but has PLENTY of hardcore wheeling obstacles on the side. I was with a TJ on 37s locked front and rear, and a Toyota pickup welded in the rear. If there was something I couldnt do, I just parked off to the side and watched, and when they were done they were right back on the same trail and we could continue on. I felt like I could spend a lot more time exploring (which is a big part of the appeal of wheeling for me) at Tolar than I could at B-port as I didn't have to avoid any trails for fear that I couldn't make it. Not saying anything bad about Bridgeport, cause that place rocks. But I think that Tolar is definitely worth exploring.

This is the facebook public album share link (took way more videos than photos)

Here's my buddy's son driving my ZJ on a pretty crazy obstacle.

And me wishing I had skid plates.

There are more on my channel. There's a link in my sig.

Do it, I'm sure they could use the business. Me and the 2 dudes I was with were literally the ONLY ones there. This stupid Texas heat must be horrible for offroad parks, but none of them offer night wheeling except for the ocassional promotion.

There is very few parks that offer night wheeling. I don't know if its the liability or not wanting to pay the tenant to stay at night.
