Smile Wheeling weather is finally here!!!

It is 82° in San Antonio today
  • Hunting Season is over in Texas.
  • A lot of my friends just got back from the Chili Challenge in Las Cruses.
  • The Ancira Show and Shine is this Saturday.
  • The first Jeep Jamboree USA of the Season is weeks away.
  • YO Ranch Spring Wheeling spots are selling fast.
  • I can already taste the biscuits from the Palo Duro JJUSA.

I think my Rubicon is ready to go:

New Tires, New Warn 9.5Ti, and I have serviced everything over the last few weeks.

The only thing I wish I had gotten done before I ran out of money was do a TeraFlex belly-up lift and a Rear CV Drive shaft. That’s just going to have to wait or I won’t have money for Gas, Beer & Cigars.

Take a peek at my baby and let me know what you think does she look ready.

AZ is probably the only state where summer tends to be the off season---- though that's where night runs become king

AZ - the all year wheeling state (screw the grand canyon)

Yeah, here in AZ in the summer if you aren't out on the trail by 5 am, then you might as well wait until night to run it. Damn it gets hot out here.

Still snowing here in PA. Still not enough to play in though. We just can't seem to get the weather right this year.

well i would take snow compared to the weather up here in maine...woke up this morning and the lovely weatherman cheered me right up.."it is 4 degrees but feels like -15..." plus NO snow so that takes out snow wheeling . thought it was going to take a bomb to start up the jeep this morning but cant wait for the warm weather to take the top and doors off and really have some fun.

That's not carnage. That's just a normal day on the trails.
