    Sorry I'm about two weeks late posting these, but here are some pics of a North GA ride I went on with a bunch of people from Expedition Portal. We went 4th of July Weekend, It was great because we has such a diverse group of vehicles. It was interesting because you have to pick your line carefully. The line the previous guy took may not work for you because of wheelbase, width, tires, suspension, etc...were all different.

    Enjoy!

    Yep...I agree.

    IIRC he said he swapped in a Low range transfer case from a Jeep cherokee and he also has a cherokee rear axle on it too.

    Wow so many nice trucks idk wich to comment on. Your truck looks like it did well and you had fun. That mercedes is wicked and that power wagon is impressive. I remember hearing what they came with a while ago and was suprised they were built so well. I'll have to check expedition portal out.

    Wow, those trails are strikingly similar to the stuff we have down in florida. i would have guessed FL had you not said GA.

    Awesome pictures and videos. looks like a great ride. I've always wanted to go on an expedition potral run, but they never match up with my schedule.

    great collection of vehicles :thumbsup:

    I bet nobody wanted to follow behind that Mercedes, It makes me think of an asian guy following a brotha in a gang bang. LOL The ruts would just swallow you up!

    land rover...pretty much a realy tall outback. wheelbase is longer than a jeep but not as long as a truck. their engines leak like crazy and overheat, but they're awesome otherwise.
