so far all my real wheeling has been at rausch creek in pa. its about 2 hours from where i am in howard county. i've also wheeled at assateague but thats just flat sand. there only place to wheel in md really is greenridge state forest, which is mostly easy fireroad type trails with some deeper water crossings and mud this time of year. i haven't been out to greenridge yet but probably will make it out there sometime in the spring. rausch creek is awesome though, everything from simple fireroad trails to some pretty extreme rock crawling. you should check out maryland jeep club, they do trail rides pretty often. the next one coming up is george washington national forest in febuary.

Did a transfer case drop on my jeep. It is only a 2" BB but it made a world of difference. The big challenge was the weather -16C (-3F) and was done in an unheated garage. brrr

Installed a Uniden 510XL CB with a Teraflex mount. Ran the coax from the right taillight under the rear cross member and up through the grommet on the left side. I then crossed it over under the carpet near the front seat. I used all 18 feet of cable! Works great and will use it on the trail tomorrow.

Discovered a leak and added some power steering fluid after driving it to work and back. So exciting. If only it would warm up so I can paint my bumper!

went wheeling @ rausch creek yesterday( very icey )

im pretty impressed with the smittybilt rear bumper and tire carrier thus far, it took a couple good whacks when i slide down the ice on a hill and smashed into a tree.

also very impressed with the aussie up front, the difference is night and day compared to being open up front, you can really feel this thing pull... or TRYING to pull you on a hilly sheet of ice.

then broke u-joint on front drive shaft while dicking around on the comp course @ the end of the day, pulled front drive shaft for the ride home.

Put the Viking top onto Mrs in Arabia's Jeep (the Blue Jeep) and put the Bestop safari top and windjammer on my Jeep (the Maroon Jeep). Took the rear seat out of my Jeep. Loaded my Bushman rack and the back of the Maroon Jeep with camping gear.

Checked the weather forecast. Cursed and swore for five minutes solid. Took the Viking top off the Blue Jeep, and installed hardtop. Removed the safari top and installed the Viking top on Maroon Jeep (but kept the Windjammer in place). Put the side windows on the Viking top but left the rear window in the storage bag, and put a Raingler net on the back to stop luggage falling out. Running like that (and with a bungee cord wound around the front bar of the Congo Cage), the interior of the Maroon Jeep was much quieter than usual.

Took both vehicles to the desert, with friends (three Landcruisers and a Durango). Pulled the Durango out of some soft sand. Some Emirati dudes in an FJ Cruiser pulled up while we we doing this, and my dad (who was visiting us this week) chatted to them. They thought the Jeeps looked cool.

We set up camp but one of the Landcruisers was going back home for the night, so my dad took the Blue Jeep and I took the Maroon Jeep to escort them back to the highway in the dark. On the way, we ran through a mild sandstorm, and then a torrential rainstorm. The UAE only gets 6 days of rain a year, so the timing was unlucky. The KC Hilites on the Red Jeep were put to the test and worked well, though I reckon the Blue Jeep now needs more lighting. The Garmin GPS was a Godsend.

It continued to rain, and got cold enough for ice and snow in some parts of the UAE, during the night. But the insides of the Jeeps, and more importantly the tents, stayed dry through the night, and in the morning we had bacon and coffee, then packed up and went home. We're planning to do the same next weekend.

Maroon 2001 TJ Sahara, 2.5 inch lift, 31" Cooper Discoverer STTs, Borla headers and catback, K&N cold air intake, Viking fastback top, Congo cage and rack, KC HIDs and daylighters, Raingler nets.

Blue 2005 TJ Sahara, 2 inch lift, 31'' Cooper Discover STTs, Viking top, KC HIDs and Daylighters.
