    Hello Forum,

    Let me first say that this place is 2hrs, 1min from my house in Miami (Google Map) & well worth it! About the same for Broward & Palm Beach. There is also mud here but I wasn't in the mood for it. There is everything you could want here except shade which is why I just finished ordering a 10 x 10 canopy tent.

    Some members from Tacoma World & Karnage Motorsports headed out to Lazy Springs Park in Labelle, Fl to hit some trails. Mauricio, David, Jeremiah, & Jonathan & other friends & family (my wife) had a great time. There was some carnage there as you will see in the pics/vids including a Jeep tearing up the rocks, I bent my step boards & my air compressor burned out as I was re-inflating my 4th tire. It was able to air up a tire for Mauricio & it aired up my 4 tires & died at that moment it finished the last tire. Hahaha.

    I had my tires at 20psi to maximize traction so I had to air up to 30 when I left.

    BTW,
    My wife & I pulled over to a rest stop on I-75 so I can use the bathroom & to air up the tires under a tree for shade. Since it's a public bathroom I put toilet paper on the seat. I didn't know until I got home that I had a tail of toilet paper hanging out of my shorts ! I can only imagine the amount of people that saw me leave with that & must have been cracking up! That rest area was pretty full. Oh my God! We couldn't stop laughing.

    Today, I straightened out my steps via a sledge hammer & a 2x4 & I lifted the front 1 more inch.

    I'm looking forward to see what mouse007 & trdagule have in pics/vids!

    Jeep gets off the rocks.

    It's a 6 speed manual & no lockers "yet" so this is a true testament to driver skill & a good spotter. BAD ASS JEEP!!

    Us PreRunners gotta stick together! That white 1st gen belongs to Jeremiah & only has 90,000 miles on the clock! Big plans ahead for that one!

    And then there was me. I drove up the easy side. Next time I'll try the stairs at an angle to see if I can climb them that way.

    OK, this is where I bottomed out on the crest of this hill & damaged my steps. You'll here the unmistakable sound of metal slamming on gravel & my wife got scared. Unfortunately, the impact made her finger come down on the record button & shut it off.

    I was worried that I would drift to the right because the sand is so soft there. I can feel the tires wanting to go straight as I was steering towards the left.

    Don't worry Jeremiah. We've all been there. David flexing his suspension.

    This place has water skiing & shows. My wife saw another lake with a scuba training sign. We had 2 cheeseburgers, a hot dog, & chips for $9. Not bad at all. Here I was saying good bye to Jeremiah but I accidentally cut the vid short.
