eton A great method of getting the mud off is to park over a garden sprinkler....I usually do the front center and rear....its amazing how much mud builds up under there...
10-27-2014 03:13 PM
eton I've seen page dry once or twice....its way more fun after a good soaking!

whats $5 at the spray wash? 8 minutes or so I am guessing. Those things are only good at getting bulk amounts of mud off, anything passed that they suck.

How do you like the cover?
With all the "go arounds" there are two or three mud pits/ruts you have to go through. Very low risk.

Mammoth is right though it will never eever dry out.

The hill did yield a new avatar pic. Thanks RBK!

I like the cover but probably wouldnt have it if I didnt have synthetic rope

from everything I read and was told, the synthetic needed to be protected

let me know when youre ready and Ill help you install everything

you can bring everything to my shop and install it there
Sweet thanks man, I wanna cover it because I don't park my jeep under anything and don't want the wire rope to rust.

2 other Rangers used tow straps and pulled him out. truck shut off after they got him back up and wouldnt start again.

waiting on them to upload the video of that

his radiator was caked in mud and his air filter collapsed. he finally got it running today and I guess he was driving it home.

Google isnt that accurate but I am assuming youll notice the powerlines...
Anyone know if its posted? Its a powerline trail, not posted and from streetview looks nice.

from my understanding, it doesnt matter if it's posted or not, it can still be considered trespassing

everything I have read says you need written permission to wheel on private property whether its posted or not

here are a couple of links on the subject

Power line trails | NC4x4

Power line trails? - JeepForum.com


so wheeling at Page may technically be trespassing

Didn't think I could get up this...especially stock. Then drspec showed me a photo said it was possible. So i gave it a go. There is a hole in my bumper, but as I mentioned previously ended up winning a winch and now I will be ordering my bumper from JCR soon. There goes my plans for a lift and or tires and or regear anytime soon...
