|MikD||I have no problem doing a "101" day if there are two or three of you that are up for it. This would not be a "wheelin day" with 25 people here with modded out rigs to make you feel like you are in over your head.|

Mt Beacon is very much illegal for jeeps. Not saying people don't wheel it but you will be tresspassing.
The trails we have at my place are basic and stock friendly, there are harder sections and only you can decide what your limits are. This is no Rausch Creek, its just my old farm where we have some fun. The main trail is passable in 2wd if that gives you any indication.

|phoenixdown318||So mikd's property doesn't have a sections where I could just tool around getting used to what the jeep feels like off road without breaking anything? Lol|

|Irobike||My jku is not lifted but I do have some nice dynapro Atm's on it as well as new bumpers, hated the plastic stock ones. I'm in for an easy Mt beacon run sometime or anytime actually|

|Irobike||I'm somewhat new to wheeling. I've been wanting to go for a while, I know my limitations so I am definitely not looking for rock climbing, just some fun trails|

Not new to the forum but I just stumbled across this thread. Im in Fishkill area and Im looking to get some trails under my belt this season. Just bought my 2011 JKU last year and have not been able to get it off road. Any runs to Mt beacon coming up? Not looking to hit real hard trails, I know there are some serious sections in Mt beacon but I also know there are some easier trail systems there too? Or least I hope

".....should I not?"

|MikD||Dorsilfin, 35's work great, 33's will leave you "wanting". Save yourself some cash and skip the 33 step in the process.|

Even 40's don't look big under a 4dr. You get so used to looking at the larger tires that when you see a stock one it looks like something is wrong with it...
Jeep looks damn good though.

|eh384||Attachment 1007673 It's been awhile since I've done some wheelin with everyone! New Jeep is almost done, and ready. I just put on the AEV heavy duty rear bumper/tire carrier and Bushwhacker flares. Is it just me or does the flat flares make my 37's look small with the 4 inch lift? Next project is the front bumper and Warn winch, then I should be okay for Mikes.|

It's actually a mini car, wanted her to be a "driver" from an early age. As soon as she started driving it we began training techniques I learned years ago while working on a pit crew in college. By 9yrs old she was comfortable with full lock drifts, threshold braking, and the basics of chassis dynamics. She could pretty well explain how the suspension stores energy and when it releases the car will be thrown into a new direction and you must anticipate it or you spin (she likes when the car spins out, you can hear her giggling). Some of my best memories have been doing this stuff with her. This will be her last season in this car as she is outgrowing it, has her eye on my RZR, told her when her feet can reach the pedals its hers.
There are some vids of this under 09mikd on youtube

After some serious work today...The frame has been reassembled and married to the axle. I am going to have to extend the landing leg as the lift and tires have netted 8" of overall lift.

|Psring22||I'm up in Saratoga|
