Playing at the badlands
 
Having never owned a jeep and being on stock tires, I wasn't ready for anything major, just wanted to head out with the Mrs and have a good time in a little mud, a couple hills, trails, rocks, dunes, etc. Sure enough, thats exactly what we accomplished. Stuck once, perfect reason to try out the winch in real world situation. Worked like a CHAMP! Man these things are fun.

Oh jeep is lifted 2.5"

I know we all like pictures, so here are a couple er few er... some :dance:

What bad lands you talking about? I know the badlands here in south Dakota but those pics don't look like it.

I can tell you had fun from the Jeep smiles. My wife and I get those same smiles when we wheel. Glad you had fun! :thumb:

Looks like you had fun buddy!:thumb: How did your Jeep do through that mud hole about 3 links down?

SinfulDragon 10-05-2011 11:25 AM

Went back, this time took the kids. We were there for a good few hours. Was much dryer this time round, but that gave us more time to get to know our Jeep as we were able to drive down into the dried out mud holes and learn angles, articulation, etc when coming back out. The dunes are always fun, tagged a bone stock land rover while there, you can see it if you look close at the bottom of the dunes. Anyway, we had lots of fun and here are some pics of us just out playing.

My kids asked if I would park the Jeep like this next time. LOL, now I just need to find a jeep with wide tires that will let me park on them....
