Getting muddy in Charleston SC
 
Me, Smaxberry, Jason04saharra, and his brother (not sure if he is a member here) went out today and hit some local trails. Trails in Charleston is usually just mud and not much other terrain, but we were able to find a few spots that brought on the pucker factor. In all it was a great time, and the range of Jeeps made it a blast. Everything from bone stock, to mild lift with mud tires, to my rig, we tamed what we crossed. This was my wife's first time going out in the Jeep, and she had a blast. She also got behind the wheel for the first time off road, and did very well. Hopefully the others will add their pics and videos. Great time today, Jason, you were a great host. Hopefully we will get out and do this again soon!

Sorry I missed you guys. I'll try to catch up with you next go'round!

Riff Raff 12-21-2011 07:19 PM

Hey Guys, I just joined this forum and just found this sub furom. Glad to see there are a few places to go wheeling. They closed down the spot we were using off of Palmetto Comm. Parkway. Me and a few friends that are in PJC, started a sister club for more hardcore types, we call it The Rockaholics. Hopefully we can meet up sometime over the holiday week and a half.

I have a 94 YJ with a homemade lift and a 87 Cherokee set up for rock crawling.

srad600 12-22-2011 07:36 PM

Great vids man. I wish I could get my wife to drive it out on the trails. She wont because she says if something breaks Ill be mean.

Sir, did I miss a build thread on your jeep? Im gonna look now.

srad600 12-22-2011 07:48 PM

Never mind, found your profile. I wanted to know about the axels. Jeep looks great man.

SirGeorgeKillian 12-22-2011 07:54 PM

Sterling 10.25 rear, Dana 60 front. They were donated by a 87 F350.

JCRubicon06 12-27-2011 12:26 PM

Hey, hit me up the next time you all go wheeling in Charleston. I live in West Ashley and im always looking to go out.

Maybe even play a day trip to Gulches? I went a couple months ago and it was pretty good for only being 2.5 hrs away.

Love to see full floaters sticking out of a Jeep. :punk: Did you keep them full width? What backspacing on your wheels?

SirGeorgeKillian 12-29-2011 09:00 AM

They are full width, and because of that, the front is a little wider than the rear (remember the rear was a dulie). I thought about getting them cut down, but 1. You can only notice it when the front wheels are straight looking at it head on, 2. It actually helps in the mud. The rear is grabbing a little un rutted ground, and 3. If the front dont make it through (width wise) then I cant go through, I know instantly.
Not sure of the backspacing.

Sorry, I just saw this. Thanks for the info. I'd really like to have a 78-79 D60 and a 10.25 for my rig. I'll have to wait for my money tree to bloom again though... :eek:
