Born and raised in the Big "O", but after a number of years with Uncle Sam's Misguided Children, I now reside in central Texas (needed the trees after my worldly wanderings).

Where in Stanton, or near Stanton, is this off-road park?

If you do put together a West Texas Jeepers rendezvous, please keep me in mind.

Will do, & thanks for inquiring. I heard that was more of a dirtbike / ATV place, than a Jeep place. However, I just learned of a place near Big Spring that a local Jeep club is meeting at tomorrow. I am probably going to the get-together tomorrow. I'll check the place out & report back to let y'all know if it's a good place to go. It would definitely be a bit of a shorter drive for KidRock.

Sad day! I'm looking at 33 12.5 15 km2's if I could fit 35" I'd be all over that. Why you getting rid of them?

I'm dropping back down to 33" All Terrains since I will be driving it on the road (paved roads) alot more often. I had the 35's on it while I was in Pennsylvania, & it didn't see much pavement time.

Good deal, I got an e-mail this evening that they had to cancel the outing because the place was closed this weekend for some reason. I'll let yall know when we get a chance to check it out.

Lol. I was thinking ransom canyon. Big spring is 2 hours out. But that ain't bad. I'd make the drive one weekend for some wheeling if I had tires. Hopefully I'll get a job soon. That's my short short list.

Sounds like that would be, round about way, meeting mid way for some wheeling. Too bad these 35's wouldn't clear, I'd make you a good deal. Problem is, unless you are are running at least 4.56 gears, I wouldn't recommend them.

Well yeah. I'd "get by" on 4:88 but id like to have proper gearing. I'll probably make a super jump from 33's to 37's years down the road.

Ouch. I've done stuff like that. It seems like a rack my knuckles on something every time I'm forcing my oil pan open.

Beautiful topless weather today eh boys.

Midland TX

Flew to Galveston on 1-17-12 and drove back a '99 wrangler. We played a little tonight between Midland / Odessa. This is my 16 year old daughters 17th birthday present. Until she is legal I have a new toy.

Nice looking Jeep, be careful, you'll get hooked. Then you'll have to go find her one. Where were you at exactly, between 191 & I-20?

For this area, that's not a bad place. I do know of some caliche pits that are ok, but not anything special. I need to go find some more places once I get mine back on the road here soon.
