That place looks awesome... How are the trails? Like most clubs they don't like alot of mud.. I don't mind it as much but is it like an crazy mud?! Give me a scale 10 being swamp and probably need a snorkel and 1 being 6in of mud? I know it varies but I looked at the map and just wondering about jeep trails... We won't be bogging. Any creeks? Lakes? Sorry for so many questions but I wanna be throughout when I plan a trip for whole club!

loganm Yea I don't know if you ever been to Hattiesburg but it's like dead center between Midsouth and SMJC which is on the coast. So I waited about a year for someone to start a jeep club and no one did. So I finally started one about two months ago. We had 11 jeeps come to our first trail ride 3 weeks ago. It was so awesome, alot of fun. We are also looking for more places to ride thats why I was asking about porter lane. We have a power line in our back yard pretty much where we have been twice an it's alot of fun but like you said alot of places to get stuck in mud be we usually go around. Lot of climbing. I know it's a long drive but if you ever want to come down one weekend let me know and I'll get the club out. If you have a FB page like us. There's two Pine Belt Jeep Clubs and I didn't know there was an older one but make sure u like the right one. I think the other says "join" our says "like"!

jeepyj13 Your build sounds like a great platform. In the delta area there is at the same time though no. I say that because in Greenville where I live we have a area called the barpits on the otherside of levee. My buddies and I rode 4wheelers there all the time and there was a good bit of trucks getting stuck down there in some deep mudholes. Fun place, but I think its private land and if caught can get into some serious trouble. For clubs no Im not in one. I don't really have much jeep buddies most of my friends tend to lean toward the trucks with m/ts. Some of my friends to this day wished I wouldve gotten a truck over a jeep and I say screw that. I did however went to showfest a couple of weeks ago and met the midsouth jeep crew. They were cool and we talked jeeps. I want to join some club ex. "midsouth jeep" then I can be in a Jeep group and find some actual land to wheel at without getting into trouble by the law.

loganm Okay I'll have to check that out too, I have duratracs as well and they have held up very well, one guy in our club has 37 MTRs and I stud up to him surprisingly well. In the future for me I want 8.8 and HP30 or D44. I want a AEV BL and by then maybe I can fab up my own TT. The 5.5in rock krawler flat fender and 37s with 4.88.

But that in the distant future maybe 3-5 years. But want I wanna do now is buy 4in springs and flat fenders with 35s. And other necessary components.

Are you in any club? Is there any parks or good places to ride up there?

Im mechanically incline on repairing vehicles and putting suspensions on, but never learned to weld properly. I tried fabricating when I restored my old dodge dart, but in the end I just ended up finding the orig. parts and bolt them in.I have 33x12.50 r15 gy duratracs on mine now. Ive had them for over a yr and rotated them every 3k miles. they look fairly new still, but my jeep was mostly a DD pavement pounder up to this summer when I got my xj running again. When the duras wear down. I want to run at most a 35" tire. With the 8.8 swap I'll regear it to maybe 4.56 since I have a 3sp auto to the 4.0. Ive did another search on youtube about the park and there was a vid posted 3months ago with a modded toyota pickup trying to climb one of the hills. It had a MS tag on it so it has to be the real deal. Apparently the park is still opened.

8.8. Seems what everyone in the yj section does. I've been doing research on how to install them myself and it seems straight forward, but more than likely end up buying a boltin 8.8 from ECGS because of my lack of welding and somewhat fab skills.

loganm Yea I haven't seen any videos yet just seen pictures. I think it's gonna be alot like Sicily in the way you don't have to have a well built rig to go everywhere... I hope there will be ways to go around what your not comfortable with. Cause I wanna bring my jeep club but most of us including me only have 3in of lift and 33s couple of 35s and one 37 with long arms. So we may try to go soon I need to watch some of those videos. Sid you happen to see when the most recent one was?
