Went camping and did a little trail riding

Its a bestop rear cargo rack. It bolts in behind your tire carrier using the same holes, you just take your tire carrier off, put the rack up, replace the tire carrier, and bolt it back in. Its super convienent on a 2 door jeep.

Looks like fun.
Love the color and the bumper, btw...

We got out yesterday too.


Ryan's swaybar links bent on his Rubi; this trail is nastier than the video makes it seem.

Nice looking Jeep. After you cut your fenders, what did you do for side markers?

Cute dog. I have the brown version. When the rear door opens, she assumes it's Jeep time for her.

Thanks. I was thinking of getting a rack for the hitch receiver, but I like this one. I think I may have to order one.

I hear ya. I live west of Little Rock and we rode around the Lake Winona area yesterday and it got to about 74 degrees according to the Jeep temp guage.

Were you cruising around the Ouchita Forest and if so what part?

Are there any good places to 4 wheel in Ouchita that folks really like/popular that you know of?

I've only had my Jeep a month but I am looking for places in the Ouchitas since it's so big and relatively close to home.

BTW, great looking Jeep. I really like that color.

Yes; XRC8-Comp.

The mount is an A to Z Fab fairlead mount.

Nice where do you live? Im in fory smith. The pictures shown are in devils den, which is in the ozarks but there are a ton of roads to wheel in both the ozarks and quachitas.

I'm in Paron which is the east foothils of the Quachitas. We have ridden dirt bikes around the Winona area for a few years now but I've never been west of 7 Hwy in the Quachitas. I would love to find someone familiar with that area and meet up sometime. I've heard the Mena area is nice.

I'm going to the "New Guys Run" in the Hot Spring's Superlift park next weeked. Hope to meet some new folks that can show me the ropes and maybe some new places to ride.
