First time out!

Just got back from taking the jeep out for the first time. It was a light trail right along the north end of Lake Lewisville, probably need to get a lift before I go on anything rougher then though. New Pro Comp Xtreme All Terrains did well though.

Had a blast and snapped a couple of pictures. It's interesting the things you find on these trails.

Anyone know of any other trails in the Lake Lewisville area?

^ X2. Stock rigs are very capable.

Here's a shot of my boss out on a very rough trail in his stock height 4 door. He doesn't even have good off road tires on it.

I was so impressed with my stock suspension's offroad moderate trail capabilities that I'm gonna leave it alone. I bought it with the dreaded 3" bodylift which made room for the 32" tires and I'm good to go for the kind of wimpy trails I encounter. It is embarrasing to have that daylight showing between the frame and tub but I never paid attention to it until I joined this forum. There's probably a bb in my future and then I'll cut the BL down to 1".
