So it sounds like Palo Blanco Ranch is basically the only place to go. Is that up in La Joya? When do you guys go up there?

There are several clubs here in the RGV that have spots where they hang out and go wheeling... Palo Blanco Ranch is a privately owned and leased ranch where the Texas Jeep Crawlers hang out and do their wheeling.
We get together on Wednesdays and Sundays... there are no mud holes just plenty of places to flex those little springs/suspension.
The place is east of La Joya in Penitas...

As soon as I decide on which one to buy with so many choices out there. I'm hoping I can find a good deal in the 4wheel parts store nxt weekend. Is there any brand you would recommended?

I barely saw this thread. I'm a jeeper from Pharr but in the summer time I'm at South Padre Island.


I'm just a stock TJ because it is my DD but I should be purchasing a lift pretty soon.

Why do I always find myself waving at the air here in Brownsville. Does no one know the Jeep wave down here? Not sayin y'all don't but damn jeep owners are unfriendly down here.
