Jacksonville/Sherwood area
 
Just wondering if there were any of you around this area, I'm stationed on the base here for a little while and was looking for some trails for a weekend getaway, or either just a nice pretty ride around some state parks. My Jeep is my daily driver so I don't wanna be too rough on her, (yet, lol) but some good lil trails would be nice to find. Best I've found so far seems to be the ORV park in Hot Springs, but it's about a half a tank away from here... lol. What all does that park consist of?

Also... can anyone recommend a good trustworthy 4x4 shop around the area, even in Little Rock to do a lil work for me if I ever need it? (ie: bigger lift, etc). I would appreciate the heads up before I took my Jeep to a shady joint. :eek:

Thanks!

i live just up the road in cabot, just moved down here from conway a few months ago so i don't know of much in the area... we gather up a few times a year with everybody from www.mudstruck.com to go riding but as for shops around the area... from what i know 4x4 offroad outfitters down by McCain Mall is a good place to give a call when you need something. He is part of the Arkansas Crawlers and deals mostly in jeep stuff

Thanks for the tip! I'll check the site out as well.

I'm in Jacksonville as well. There's also Cabot tire and off road. X2 on the 4x4 outfitters. Mines a dd too. I want to play but not tear it up yet as we'll. I know of a little place in Sherwood to play in mud. It's by where they r building some houses but its not bad.

USAF089 01-03-2013 08:40 PM

Sounds good, I appreciate it! Have you ever took yours to the Superlift ORV park?

SuperMidget 01-03-2013 08:49 PM

We dont do rocks... We are mudders so the sl park isnt for us

Just to haul my Polaris rzr to play with. Only 8k miles. Still too new for dents n scratches. Muddying is fun just not the cleanup. Not any good car washes around to clean them Without getting griped at.

SuperMidget 01-03-2013 09:38 PM

Thats why i have a pressure washer at the house... Clean up when i get around to it

USAF089 01-03-2013 10:32 PM

I was thinking about going to check it out and see what it was all about. Just watching probably, don't wanna be too rough on mine. May have to see about a four wheeler to take with me.

This is an open event for anybody with a Jeep, or interested in learning more about Jeeps! These are family events, and everyone is encouraged to bring their families out. This time we are going to demonstrate a few simple modifications and provide the materials so that those that want to can actually perform the mod with help and supervision. Please come out and join up with us, and spread the word to other Jeep owners and lets see what we can get into next!
We will be getting ready for our first crawl together coming in January in Hot Springs at Superlift Off Road Park.

the jeep clubs trip is January 19th...

Hope you can make it out! We should have a good group there tomorrow! Will be going over a few things, probably playing in the ditch out front, but mostly gearing up for the first ride on the 19th.

I live about 30 miles south, but I am in Sherwood a lot. My mother in law lives there just off hwy 107. 4x4 offroad outfitters is a great 4x4 shop. Superlift is a good place, there is no reason to tear your Jeep up there, they have trails for everyone.

Lord willing and the creek don't rise I will be there sir! Sounds like a good meet. :thumb:

Countryboy: I appreciate the info! I will def be checking out both places then. I have a few things in mind I may get them to do for me and the park sounds nice. I will be checking it out soon.

USAF089 01-05-2013 01:26 AM

Could someone give me the address to the meet in the morning? I'm pulling up two different Landers in Little Rock, one is on South University, and then other is a Alcoa Road address in Benton. I'm gonna guess it's the University address? Thanks!

Lancent 01-05-2013 01:48 AM

I wish I was down that way, there aren't very many places up in the Northeast. There need to be some meets up this way too.

Be a while before I make it back, spending too much money on the house to do much of anything else right now.

Doc3613 01-05-2013 05:45 PM

SL in hot springs is great. I dont do mud, last time i did it cost me over 600.00 to fix. SL been there a bunch no breaks or damage. There is a lot of different trail from easy to very hard. Look at the central AR meet up thread. Wavey

Doc3613 01-05-2013 05:46 PM

Oh, pm me your number if u want. A buddy of mine has got a fellow jeeper that works in the base. I can have him send him your number if u want
