I had the fire extinguisher ready for when you got to the top!
I mean if you were wearing crocs in a ranger that capable, who the hells gonna keep count of cool points anyway...
That’s what it looks like to me those big ones use to be at the fork off in the middle my rocker left some green paint on em back in 09! Lol
We were leaving today and ran into some people from Wisconsin with a map on the hood of their JK.
Dude, his wife and 3 kids in the JK on 35s. A TJ on 35s was with them as well. Dude driving with his 28 year paraplegic brother riding shotgun. Asked me if I knew the park well enough to show them around.
3 hours later they had ran some trails they never dreamed of.
It melted my sarcastic heart to see the sheer joy in the paralyzed man's face when we stopped for lunch. True joy.
My trip was great already. That made my year right there.
Gonna meet up with them at Windrock later this year for round 2.
You're a good man Jody!
Up until I asked why he (the paralyzed dude) didn't return a Jeep wave.
We all nearly pissed ourselves.
He had an awesome outlook on life. Was a real inspiration
Lol going to hell for that one...
Did you tell them "Let's go do Mason Jar. It's not that bad, aside from that one spot. But its probably dry so it will be fine"???

I’ve got a bunch of photos taken Friday before @Chris_Keziah broke. Once I get to the hotel tonight, I’ll upload some
From memory here (Little foggy for some reason), and I quote. "A plan? Yall got no damn plan! We're gonna go up on that mountain and get stuck! Then we're gonna pull some cable and get un-stuck and hopefully make it back for lunch! Then we're gonna go back up on that mountain and get stuck again and pull some more cable and get un-stuck and hope we make it back for dinner."
Pin Ball, Railbed, Fish Fossil, LRG and Killin Time.
Pretty good trails for people not accustomed to rocks covered in snot.
Took us about 3 hours all said and done
This may have have been where I asked @ncsutj if he wanted me to ask his wife to drive his TJ up the rock
Nobody wants to see his Jeep just sitting on the trailer.
Just ordered the new bracket and shock to get it fixed for now. I may also be picking up a 70 HD Friday to stash away for awhile.
There is a D70 Detroit locker for sale on pirate right now if you don’t plan on a welder carrier.

That 70 was sold out from under me, so I'll be looking for another one.
Those were the AMF years.....GAWD no one wants a 1970 Hardley ever runs.....
I was wondering how many would be jonesing/planning for tons and stickies after wheeling with jody.
@paradisePWoffrd I know what you mean by that. Let me clarify just a bit. Not reflectant on your post at all. I hope nobody took the trip as a "follow the leader" thing. I was content with shwoing them around, not "look at me I have a built rig on stickies".
I had more fun than I have in a long time last weekend. I love the very difficult trails and obstacles. More so, I enjoy the fellowship and meeting/making new friends. The group size was perfect and the trail choices allowed us to cover a ton of ground.
I had stale gas in my cell from my last outing in January. I needed some time in the woods. It's as simple as that.
My plans for tons has been there for awhile, I've just been taking my time. Now I will say riding in Jody's Ranger may speed my plans up a bit but we'll see.
I doubt anyone took it that way, I think most of us were happy just to meet you. I just hope my rig stays together long enough next time so I can try and follow the Ranger around some.
I edited my my post to clarify better...
I didnt take it as such.... i know from my experience, when riding with a guy with a more built rig, it gets the wheels turning in my head on upgrades for my rig. I also like riding with folks with different types of rigs, and seeing what works well what doesnt. New/different folks also have us get out of our comfort zone and sometimes for the better (as it seems for some folks here).
I’ve always found it more exciting following rigs more capable then mine that’s what’s driven me to stay in the 4x4 scene for so long (when I actually wheeled), when I said Follow the leader I certainly didn’t mean that remark as that @jodytreadway was showing off hope that wasn’t misinterpreted in any way... I’ve taken my pos zj on 33s behind buggy’s in mtn city all the time and had some of best times ever same in Harlan as well.
I'm greatly offended. My ego is nearly as delicate as @Loganwayne's cinnamon ring.
Well... You sorta come off as a delicate kinda fella but that may just be the crocs!! Truly croc martins are the hard ass’s croc of choice. Lol
