Hey everyone. I know this is an almost 1 year old thread, and its my first post, but:
Does anyone know of any good rock trails around North Florida? Im here along the Suwannee River, only a few trail, alot of mud, no rocks :/

Back when I bought my first Jeep (an '88 XJ) and began getting into the hobby, I spent a lot of time playing in mud. The endless cleaning and maintenance after each trip got old in a hurry. Rocks, on the other hand, seemed to be easier on my Jeep's mechanicals, if not on the bodywork. As time went on, I spent less and less time in the mud and more and more time on the rocks.
By the time I transitioned into my first Wrangler (a factory-ordered '01 TJ), I had turned my back on mud for good. I'm on my 5th TJ now, and I've never looked back.

But the work power washing and changing the diff fluids etc after made it all not worth it.

|sprucetrap||My earliest Jeep memory was seeing the Glen Lake Mudders go out to rattlesnake heaven. I just happened to be swimming and jumping off the east bay bridge when about 30 of them went by. I was about 9 or 10. When they came back, every jeep was the same color... mud! I'm sure I will have fun on any surface. Getting another Jeep was simply divine from the unexpected check to finding my Jeep "Corey's Road" on a back road. Praise the Lord!|

|yrflu||Mud is fun. Nothing like being able to spray your passengers with mud when you are letting the big dogs eat. The only draw back is the amount of immediate care required when you are playing in the mud.|

Not hiding it VASY--

I like mud! wooded trails logging road style mud, not just run through a field to get dirty mud.
You encounter fallen trees, wash outs, run off streams, and there are rocks out there where I go. The technical side of it increases with every rain storm.

It is straight green. I have 3 of them in my neighborhood. All driven by chicks. Mine stands out by the fact that I have not washed the body in abotu 3 years, and I have larger than factory tires.

It is electric lime green. It is my second jeep this color. The first was not a factory color. The previous owner painted it. But a heads up, it may be a chick color. The only time I see a dud in a jeep this color is at rausch creek. Most are chicks. Mine is beat up enough and with enough replaced body panels I can pull it off.

|somis||I love a good mud session. In so Cal where I'm at there's tons of avocado orchard and strawberry fields that me and my buddies tear up. Its a blast and gets very technical. Plus the chicks love it! Yea its a pain to clean if you let it sit for a week! In my opinion its the sand washes that get me the worst. I love em but they put a beating on the rig. I clean it right when I'm finished. Replace regrease etc. boys. You only live once!|

|Kota7x||Destroyed a windshield driving through the mud. The mud going up and down with the windshield wipers (it was raining) scratched the glass to where there were rainbows in the glass. Here where I wheel, our mud is a acidic clay that does not come off, and it stains EVERYTHING. I stay as far away from it as I can.|

Aprils fools day a little late? A cherokee wheeling? I am not buying that mess.
|05-20-2012 07:30 PM|
|NorthwoodsJeeper||I like mud and rocks. But I'll go with mud for now. I'm still rather new off roading, so I'm slowly working my way up and up in the rock world.|
|05-20-2012 07:29 PM|
The body parts that are not green I painted. And yes, there are some. But that green is a factory color.
|05-20-2012 07:23 PM|
|computeruser||Neither - I'll stick to the more passable trails and two-tracks, and save the getting stuck and breaking crap for the kids.|
|05-20-2012 06:02 PM|
While I have made bad decisions about wheeling without a frame...all it took was a huge mud pit at GRNF and I was done. Stuff hit me in the eyes every time I went under it to replace something for almost 6 years.
I am framed again, so it's all okay now. Carry on.

|JeepJKRiders||Rocks, no mud.|
|05-18-2012 03:36 PM|
|InvertChaos||I like forest trails that are rock and packed dirt with some water crossings. Not a fan of straight up goopy mud that gets thrown all over the jeep but i don't mind a little.|

my mustang wouldn't have gotten through that snow. LOL
I know, your prob. looking for horses, not cars.
