    Talking My birthday, in pics


    So I got my truck Friday. I didn't have it a whole 24 hours and we went out on the trails.

    My roomie brought his Rubicon out for the first time too.

    Mine is the silver TRD!

    Near the end of our 4 hour nothin but dirt trip!

    This hill was SICK to get up. The Ranger that came with us hit the whoops hard and got nearly 5' of air from his front end before bottoming out hard on the next whoop!



    Final pic, all of us with our toys. These will help keep us sane all winter!

    Looks like a blast. Now I need a new toy again that can do that! Think I could hook up the Expolder to off road??

    Where did you go to do that?

    Thanks, I had to hold out quite a while (1 week) to find a TRD. Definitly glad I got it once I climbed my first 40 degree rocky hill! That locking diff in back helps out quite a bit, as does the gas shocks and progressive wound springs. Seems to sway less on the road too.

    Perhaps we should have an NESR winter 4-wheel fest up in my area in the upcoming months! Oreo, you get that Heep workin yet? I'm sure Nikon would be up for it, and perhaps Stoneman could get that cherry Chevy out for some abuse. Who else has a 4-wheel drive that needs a good workout?

    Yeah Mike, you get that Exploder up here. We'll get it more ground clearance the old fashioned way.....hitting big rocks at speed!

    Next up: 2 2-ton come-a-long's, couple two straps, shovel, saw, ax, CB (DO NOT HIT THIS PUDDLE!!!!), maybe a winch......

    Yeah, I wouldn't reccommend taking that where we went. Your "Step-Bars" would prove themselves not to pull double duty as rock sliders with the quickness. Ya really need a small truck, Jeep or wreched excess of juicey goodness like that Bourbon to get through trails here in NE!

    Jeep YJ 38.5"x11" swampers 1 ton axles locked front and rear and more then enough rescue gear to pull your trucks up the same routes I just drove up.

    if i was going, you couldn't pull me up anything with your little yj.

    you don't weigh enough

    when i get stuck, it's time to fire up the front or rear winch.

    btw: it's got one ton axles locked front and rear and enough tools and spare parts to build another truck.

    You need not apply. You go wheeling with any groups in New England?

    most of my wheeling was done in the 90's we did some group rides, but i got tired of working on or waiting for trucks that had no business being in the woods.

    now i do most of my wheeling on a street registered dirtbike or the motard

    like me

    i have a wussey YJ and I know it. however, she is still fun even if she's only a 4banger on 31s...All I could afford......

    she'll get bigger in teh future when I can afford to drop something bigger in that front end.
