It wouldn't feel right keeping them for myself especially since you are the OP. I would be willing to part with one long ad they come in a set.

Ocotillo if they run the pumpkin patch etc can be done by a Subaru....there's not a lot of nasty on that course if they stray from it there can be some fun stuff....
Its sandy and real pumice type grit it shouldn't be muddy it soaks up REAL fast there.

Might hit a spot or two but not much in the desert...(watch its muddy lol)

Biglow (scott) and I are headed out to go and then go play around if anyone wants to go hammer down afterwards.

It's prefect after a rain. Low dust, tons of traction.

Pics!! Pics!! I wanted to go soo bad but it is too far for me to go to this weekend when planning to go in a month. Ended up fishing at Troutdale in Agoura with my grandson. His first fishing trip and he was excited as heck when I told him we were going in the Jeep. For being two he sure loves the Jeep.

Was going to go down today, but my co-pilot was under the weather, so decide to reschedule for another weekend...I've done that mud before, and real happy I don't have to try to clean it out of every piece of the under carriage of the jeep!

I know shell reef, the trail to pumpkin patch and gas domes area can get muddy, but how about the sand? Devils slide, the washes, etc.

Home computer is only allowing 1 photo at a time.

You can see how well the tires were working with what looked to be more of a clay than mud.
