    Rather than continuously bumping the old meet threads, I figured I would start one main thread for those of us that live in South Florida. I know the majority of the Florida user base lives in Central to North Florida, and that's where the majority of members in the regular BS thread are from. Maybe this will help expand the South Florida user base, and get more people to come to the meets, get more local help, or whatever...

    Went out to the regal spot with Fink. A bit dry today, but at least I got to pull out a Ford.

    I think we need to call those two holes near the entrance "The Ford Ego Pits". Only ever seen fords go through, and none have ever made it. Lol

    DAMN! That looks like fun. Tacoma to the rescue! :D

    Hey, I'm gonna post up some info shortly about a meet on April 21. Of course, I'll post it in the Florida thread.

    That F-150 is 2WD, right? I love my PreRunner but you can't argue with results. I doubt I would have been able to pull that F-150 out like you did. Hell, MAYBE Jerome like you did the last time because he wasn't stuck so bad. LOL!!

    Yeah, I'm defiantly sold on the idea of the bubba rope. I've heard good things about the ARB snatch straps, basically the same thing and they're about half the cost...

    Think I'm gonna pick up one of these...

    If anyone is interested, I have a spare set of LEDs for either your interior map lights, or tag lights for a second gen. Just upgraded all my lighting, both inside and out.

    So I just had an officer that I was talking to tell me that they were cracking down on people trespassing at that spot behind regal. I guess those guys that were stuck in the Excursion go out there all the time, and are starting fires with pallets. They've had a lot of complaints, and are just going to start arresting people.
