Lets see your jeep making its own parking space in the winter. As we all know some of the best parking spaces are accessable by jeep only :D

Heres my jeep creating its own space at the gym...it was half snow bank, half parking space. The whole lot was full except the very end but i got the closest spot to the gym. The minivan next to me must have been jealous :D

^^ Awesome! I am not very experienced, but would like to try this. I guess its all about staying with in your limits. Any tips to safely do something like this? The only mod I know i have is a set of 31's.

You may want to gets some friends together, head to the woods, a go wheeling for real. Mall safaris are ok for picture ops, but nut a recommended training ground.

A buddy parked her here, then posed.
This is a little cafe at the bottom of a ski run that you can only reach by snowmobile or skis.

So just curious, can you drive those on pavement if need be? Not on the highway obviously but like around town?

jamesS 01-24-2012 10:20 AM

I drive them on the roads all the time. I'm about 8km from the really good stomping grounds and have to get there on the asphalt roads.
The front tracks have a hydraulic ram thats tied in to my steering, it pushes down on one set of boggies in the center of the bottom of the track that cause the front and rear of the track to raise...this minimizes the area in contact with the road for steering when stopped.
I switch it off when moving...no need.
I am still considering Hydro assist...will help when the lockers are on.
