Just got done in the black hills

Had a lot fun out here. Especially one trail that took us from bolder canyon up and around deadwood to hwy 35 I think. Got to the top and there was an awesome view. Great climb. My first big challenge in the jeep too.

Majority of the trails we do are scenic and there are optional harder trails to try or you can bypass. My friends 2005 TJ Rubicon with 32's did great!!
We have great local people that bring us out!!
We went at the end of July this year. We haven't set up yet for next year yet. Probally this winter we will.

I'm from Sioux Falls and have been looking for somewhere to go in South Dakota. Other than the black hills have you guys found a place for a beginner? I have a stock 07 sahara.

This is the standard. Although there are modifications that can be made to allow for bigger rubber. You are correct though with 4" and 33s being the norm/standard.
