    :thumbsup: I'm north, basically by Michigan's Adventure.

    If you ever want to get exposed to some more trails, let me know and there's enough up here to keep you going for days :p

    And is that a TRD Expedition sticker I see? If I ever switch mine out, i'll prod go with that :D

    hopefully with less crushed air filters :p

    personally for the next one I vote more trails, less mud.

    Im good with that. Until I get a chance to make inner fenderwells for the front glass I should probably stay out of the mud.

    Mudd on a trail is no big deal, just probably dont need to run through deep truck eating holes. But it is so hard the fun factor is like gravity.:D Im making drop in sheilds for the airfilter just for such a purpose.

    We need to get another run together.

    I dont mean wet sandy holes with no bottom to them, I'm talking dirt, mud, ive found it very tough to come across in western Michigan! This half of the state is all sand I think!

    Yankee springs is more sand than anything. The couple few difficult area's I found have some mud (hard pack clay gone mucky). There was only one spot I was required to use 4wd this time going back up one of the hills. These trails are geared towards low speed climbs and descents.

    The area would require turning around a couple of times due to the fact that I haven't figured out which part of BFE the trail drops to.

    One section as long as it gets traveled more turns into truck eating ruts (I high centered about 5 foot in attempting in 2wd)



    Maybe if the model Jay knows has some trails around the dorr area we could easily hit those and then go south a little more into Yankee and romp around there.

    Ya supposedly its private property and someone always knows someone so you can go out there but I never been over there.

    Ill have my Father in Law check the plot map to see who owns it. Always forget to check on it then someone asks.

    Working here. I thought about hitting the Mounds for the Thankgiving Day food drive they do there but my bro-in-law invited me out to his place to do some shooting and then grub. A lot of lead will fly for a while. It's too much fun to not go.

    Well then, so that leaves Jay and myself still available? If there is no planned meet I will probably head out to Yankee Springs to explore more and probably do some mountain biking while I'm out there.

    I will be in town.

    So I am a part-time blacksmith as a hobby... thus I'm currently working on some large metal goodies for the truck :taco:

    Chris, your bumpers have inspired me :cool:

    well its still on paper so no pix just yet but this is the general quick concept i'm going for.

    I love ur bumper Chris dont get me wrong but I dont like how for a daily driver, the bars dont protect from the environment much if any... soo i'm going more of the tube frame with at least sheet metal over the gaps

    I still need to work out:
    -turn signals
    -whether I want OR lights yet or not (could always add brackets later on)
