I went with the cooltech ultramount. It mounts on to the license plate bracket. I haven't installed mine yet so I can't say anything about the install.

bring the radio, I can get you started on hooking it up. Sand barge? there are several "sand bars" out there. and a little Bar on the river side- The River Roost. But I don't know of a Sand Barge.

I've been doing some research this morning and I found a new area for Camping with trails in the Forever Wild Land- Red Hills tract. It's just north of Monroe, Alabama off Hwy 41. Has anyone tried this place out yet? I'm not going there today. just trying to find out if anyone has been there.

As we were leaving the trails last time, I got stopped by some guy in a uniform, blocking the road with his pick-up, I thought he was a Ranger of sorts. He asked if I had a permit, I told him I didn't have one. His reply was, "well I didn't see you down in there". He was also very displeased that I had mud covering the sides of my jeep (it wasn't even the worst it had ever been). I tried to explain that I didn't do anything different than the other 2 "clean jeeps" as he called them. He asked where I got into all that mud, and I told him about the one little mud hole on the far eastern trail. He said he had driven through that spot before and never got his truck as muddy as my jeep was. I tried to explain about my tires sticking out past the fenders cause more mud throwing, But he was one of those guys that was right in his mind, and I was wrong, so I didn't press the issue. I asked him if we were allowed drive the trails and to go down to the sand bars, he said yes if we can do so without "tearing up the place" and not to go past the Orange signs. He let me go without incident.

After doing the trails, I had already planned to check out a Ranger Station, that I read about on-line (alabamaforeverwild.com). It's down on Duck Road, just a few miles east of the River Road off of Hwy 112 on the left. When I got down there the Ranger Station was open, and hunters were sitting all around, they looked at my mud covered jeep and seemed amused I walked up and spoke to the Ranger at the check in window. I told him about the guy in the uniform that stopped me. He asked that I describe the guy to him, he said that was the Game Warden. The Ranger said that if I didn't have a gun in my vehical (for hunting) and if I wasn't bow hunting or fishing, that I wasn't required to have a permit for that area.

He did mention it would be better if I and any other jeep buddies wanted to come back down just to "joy ride" the trails, we should not come on the "Gun Days". This Ranger was pretty cool he showed and explained the Permit-Maps and even joked with me about my jeep being covered in mud.

At the Ranger check point is a wooden desk just to the left of the check in window, the desk top has handles so it can be lifted open, inside the desk are Permit-Maps, they are free. The rules of the area, and the hunting dates are on the back of the map. You sign and date the front and keep it on you, while on the trails. The purpose of the permit, is only to show the you have read the rules and understand them. The only thing I read that would pertain to us, is that we don't go off trail, venture around any locked gate, and don't proceed past the Orange "No Vehicals past this point" signs. The Ranger did say that we aren't required to have the permit. But I figure if you had one on you and got stopped by the by the Game Warden, he might be more pleasant with you, (as long as you're not covered in mud) Plus you'll know what days are better for going down there.

The Gun Days are as follows: Dec 14th and 15th, Jan 4th & 5th, 11th & 12th, 25th & 26th. There are more dates for Feb and March.

The map doesn't show the trails, just the hunting areas, and how to get there from I-10, and Hwy 112.

I've been thinking about it too. I have been chatting with some guys in the Niceville area that say they wheel off of hwy 85 at the midway point. it looks fun, more than just the flat trails on this end of the Eglin Range.

are the crestview trails public? I've been out there before when I bought a hardtop for my other jeep but didnt seem like there was any trails.

I pulled an asshole out of the trails that we go to off of oasis. A friend texted me that his friend bought a H3 and went offroading by himself with some friends with 0 recovery equipment. Went and pulled him out with my snatch strap and he was just rude the whole time. I was in 2hi the whole time don't know how he got stuck it was in the water pit where that honda ridgeline was backing out that one time he got stuck on the ledge and didn't realize that he was just digging and digging himself deeper and whats worse was when i was pulling him out he thought that he should just sit in neutral.

had some trouble with a bumper i ordered so i ordered a new JCR bumper. Going to order either a rugged ridge 8500 or engo 9000 this week if i cant find a good deal on a used warn.

I have a couple people interested in setting up a trip to boggs and boulders. I have a couple groups on facebook that i'll hit up but as long as i have 3+ other jeeps going i'm going to set a date we'll go up sat morning run trails camp that night and go home sunday

One of the guys said there are some trails behind Lowe's. I figured with all the vids it might be public, but don't know for sure. When was the last time you went down in there. Is it pretty wet with all the recent rains?
