Unfortunately, all the creek beds and mud holes were dried up, so I didn't get a chance to see how the new tires would do in the mud. However, I did have a pretty decent time crawling down the dry creek bed--Ole' Hank on rotation.

There's an area at the park where there's a series of extremely tight hairpin turns that even a smaller CJ-5 would have trouble negotiating without several attempts. Made it up to the top.



This is the one extreme hill I didn't attempt because I didn't feel like ending up getting air-lifted out of the park.



This guy almost made it up to the top but he lost his front axle. Had to winch his way up to the top. If a dude in a killer rig like that rolling on 35's with a 4" lift and a small block Chevy V8 under the hood couldn't make it without breaking, I sure as hell wasn't going to try.



I shot this pic from halfway up the hill. Rock crawling is not my forte.

Stoney Lonesome Ride.



Took another ride up to Stoney Lonesome ORV Park up in Cullman, AL. just outside of DODGE CITY. Yahoo!! Finally got a chance to test out my new Motorcraft AT2 275 60r 18's.



They finally opened up the new lodge and got rid of that damn trailer. Now I have a place to leave the wife while I rip up the trails. On my way back from riding I was airing up my tires when this older guy rides up to my JK on his Can Am four wheeler. To make an extremely long, long, long story short, I ended up showing him every feature about the JK that's different and better than pre-07. I also explained the Rubicon's capabilities that are different from my Sahara. He still liked the Sahara better, so I guess I just talked the guy into buying a JK. Never got a chance to finish airing up my tires, though.



Okay, down to business. The same hills I couldn't hope to have gotten up more than a couple of feet without spinning all four of those sorry ass 265 65r 18 inch Bridgestone Duelers I ran up with little or no effort at all.





When they say EXTREME JEEPS ONLY, they freaking mean what they say. I handled them all but didn't get a chance to reach their "Gutt Buster" and "Who's Your Daddy" hills. By the time I got around there it was already 4:30 and the park closed at 5.
