  • Where are the 4-wheelers at????

    I remember right before I left the site a year ago, there was some 4x4 talk going on. Unfortunately most of the talk was from Jeepers .

    So let's have some 4x4 talk. What are ya running? What's you style (rocks, trail running, just like to have the 4x4 just in case)? Do any of ya belong to any clubs? National Land-Use organizations?

    My club is gearing up for our annual Blazerfest event at Hollister Hills OHVRA in two weeks. It's turning out to a major event. Last year we had about 35 rigs show up between two clubs. Now my club has almost 80 members alone so we are expecting somewhere in that neighborhood of showing up. We have some folks coming in from Washington and maybe Oregon and our resident alien from Canada is coming back again. We also are going to be covered in a national 4x4 magazine also.

    Here are some pics from my clubs last big run in February.

      Bubba Ray, I drive a stock (for now) 2002 Toy 4-Runner Sport Edition. I've taken it out to Hollister Hills many times (I have the dents to prove it [Eek!] )

      I don't plan on modifying it much. I am going to get new tires (Same size, just more agressive tread).

        If you are close by and got a day or two off, our club run is the last weekend of the month, take a drive up there for the day.

        Most of the rigs showing up are built up behemoths that flex better than most porn stars, but we welcome everyone with open arms and you are welcome to wheel you stock ride. Saturday is the big day as we well have our Poker Run and then the big time raffle draw that night.

          My JEEP Cherokee is a daily driver so I can't do too much to it.

          It's a 98 Sport 4wd.

          A 3inch suspension lift is the biggest thing I've done to it.

          Lots of bolt ons.... bull bar,nerf bars,tail light guards,1 set of KCs,CB and antenna, HAM radio and antenna, scanner and antenna, 1 set of extra back-up lights, 1 set of area lights mounted on the ceiling inside the cab pointed out the back,plastic tuff box in back is full of everything in the world(fire ext.,tow straps, etc.)

          It's not a rock crawler, mostly mudding and less agressive trail rides it what I like to do.

          HAIL JEEP!!!!!!

            You know, I'm a redneck, but I've truly never understood the whole attraction.

            I guess I was born without the muddin' gene

              I don't even try to hide my redneckness(Yeah, thats probably not a word).

              Can't explain it Nite, just seems like the right thing to do sometimes. You must be right it's genetic!!

                So that means you have a '78 El Camino in the garage and wish you could work undercover so you can grow a mullet?

                  "To most, it is but a mere Jeep. To a redneck, it is a gift from God". My personal favorite bumper sticker. I just sold the last of my CJ's. First time I haven't had at least one in the garage since 87. My guess is another project will take it's place before the summer is over. I saw a for sale sign on a CJ 7 across the valley this week. Nice starting point I think. I see it stretched, on board air and welder, set of new Thornbirds, sitting in the shop behind the house and ready to go by January or February. My wife just doesn't get it.

                    I'm looking hard for CJ7's and early YJ's. Just something I can pay cash for, is, for the most part, road ready and makes a good candidate for resto/upgrading. Something in the area of 4" lift, 33's (5-6" with 35's would be better), Dana 44, Terra T-Case, ARB lockers...you get the drift.

                    I've got a '97 XJ, but since it's the only car and my wife's daily driver, she not only says "NO", but "HELL NO!".

                      Currently running a Grand Cherokee, an old Bronco II, and an F250 Diesel pickup. All 4WD. But I really don't have any use for mud boggin, and it's a damn good thing considering the dry climate I live in.

                      Still, I do get into SNOW (not nearly as often as I like though) so I keep everything 4WD. But when I really do feel like off roading, I break out the ATV. . .

                        I cried like a baby when I crashed and subsequently couldn't afford to rebuild my CJ. Luckily, it was in such good shape that the local 4wd Shop bought it from me and fixed her up REAL nice again. Only problem, I can't justify buying her back. It is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo SWEET. I'm running a 2000 XJ now, but I'm seriously looking at buying a 2003 TJ Rubicon.
                        Nobody ever wants to have to fight, but its a darn good idea for someone to know how.
