Just a drizzle at the Island, but nothing to write home about... Hit the bay with the yaks!

I'm from Harlingen too... Sounds like the trails off the Ed Carry bridge just south of the Arroyo Colorado a World Birding Center. I think it's McCullough Park... Few trails in there.

Sick jeep man!! I saw it today on my way back to work. It looks to me like you are staying out at the island for a few huh? Looks like the area over by Dirty Al's just before going into isla blanca park.

What kind of lift do you have on your jeep?

I've make some research on it and it's also known as Ports Mansfield. There should be some jetties at the end of the road. Been wanting to go out there, but not by myself...haha

I have a Zone 3 inch lift on it. Rides a little higher than 3 inches though. I'm planning on adding a 1 inch Daystar body lift in the future.... And a sye, and winch, and a this, and a that, and a.... Well, you know the deal. It's been awesome out here on the island, hate to have to leave, but gonna head home on Thursday.

Haha yeah I was in the backseat. My designated driver was driving. Haha thanks! My sister saw the whip and was like "you're joking right?" Sad thing is I didn't hear anyone on any cb channels the whole weekend I was there! So the whip was just for looks.

I'm curious to know who's from Brownsville and by what area. I'm obviously from Brownsville, but I am from the Southmost Area.

There's a really steep incline in harlingen. Off the Dixieland bridge near the corner of Dixieland and Rangerville rd. Thats where I like to go to test my lockers.

Is the steep incline you are referring to visible from the bridge?

Yup either side of the bridge is good. I like the north west side personally... I watched a guy in a Yukon try... EPIC FAIL Wish I had recorded it!
