Badlands 3/5

Not going to have a ton. Just did easy stuff since I am stock and just got front hooks on. Got stuck on a couple trees somewhere on green and got a winch off. Then got stuck again trying to get on the trail (longer then TJ wheel base is not fun in tight spaces). I need to take it easy until I get a rear recovery point though (and lift and bigger tires but that is a different story). Also got stuck going down a hill where my longer then TJ wheel base killed me. Oh well was still fun. Did have to take my right rear fender flare off due to it coming loose. I was told I did some three wheeling due to sway bars being connected.

Some pictures.
Playing, still has sway bars connected also.





Did the creek, water was high, but not too high (was about a couple inches away from the bottom of my XJ)

I like these trees.


Some other Jeeps.





More to come.

Where I got stuck (probably a lot due to first time wheeling my own Jeep)

I think a chain saw or ax needs to be in at least one Jeep when at badlands.

It will stay dirty for a few days as a badge of honor, then I will wash it.


Other rigs.



Even tiny rigs.



Posing in front of the tubes.


Some of the Naxja guys.

Looks like alot of fun. I wish I could have made it, I planned on making it, but it just wasn't in the cards for me this weekend. And if it keeps raining I might have to trade the jeep for a boat just so I can get to work Monday! Again, thanks for posting. I'll be looking forward to more pics, just to torment myself.

Had it not been raining and I would have been riding more, I would have had more pictures. Hopefully in June I can have a little more fun and not get stuck where I did (probably get some place else since I can't afford a lift at the moment {rear leafs are sagging pretty good so I need a lift with new leaf packs}).

And that NAXJA group we road with was huge.. it was loads of fun waiting... and waiting... and waiting some more for the 15 rigs in our group to make it through the orange trail lol. Felt like rush hour in the city

But either way, still had a blast wheeling and talking with you again Jeff! Hope to wheel again sometime soon.
