Mammoth919 No problem Tom, it was a great trip and I had a blast.

Elevencommo, a few of us are in LE, myself included. Been there 4 times now and haven't had an issue. It is not posted and because of that, if you are asked by LE to vacate the area, that is considered a warning. Failure to heed to the LEO's warning and being caught there a second time leads to 2nd Degree trespassing charge which comes with its own citation. If a land is posted "NO TRESPASSING" and you fail to acknowledge the sign and its message your first warning from LE can be a citation. Depending on the officers mood.

With that out of the way, going south on 540 it is the land on the right of 540. Near the lake. Merge onto 40 and take your first exit. Once stopped at the light turn left. You will see a entrance thru the guardrail. That is the "page rd" trail. It serves as a access to the lake at the bottom and I found a quick release for a bow there last week which leads me to believe it is also used for hunting. No where on this property have I seen any sign saying it was illegal and or unlawful to be on said property. Like all trails, tread lightly and don't litter. With our area being so limited as to what trails we can use, we need to respect the ones we have an not lose them.

I guess so. Is is not the land to the left going south on 540 with the airport to the left. Seems close enough.
If people go out there I would like to join. I just cant catch a tresspassing charge becuase Im in the security industry and will lose my job that pays for my Jeep.

Jeffk1975 Even with the 3.75 back spacing my 33x12.5's still rub the LCAs at lock. I need to do the steer stop "adjustment". LOL.

Still bummed that we're going to miss URE this weekend. Stupid anniversaries. LOL.

I hope yall have a great time and stay safe.

You could do what NCBear said, which will be the cheapest and easiest solution. Or, as you mentioned, get wheels with a different offset. 3.75 backspacing should be plenty for you.

I highly recommend staying away from spacers, unless there is 100% no other option.

NC Bear get yourself a couple washers and extend the steering stops. It took 2 per side for mine.

Spacers will work however good ones are pricey and if you wheel a lot I wouldn't trust them. Just get some black steel wheels and call it a day. Can get a set cheap. Cragar d windows come to mind. And it you ever bend em they can be hammered back!
