    Yea but what else down here?
    In the cities, nothing.
    Seems like you have to go out west for fun or some people were saying down on Miami.

    Yeah...I'd be willing to go down to miami if I had to, I just wanna make sure it's worth the trip...

    I think a day or weekend trip to Mudfest would be more fun for a group of people tho...but at $40 a person, many wont come to that...

    I really like the looks of Citrus. Wish there was something like that closer...

    A place like citrus here would be awesome.

    I heard there's an area of all sand (not crazy about that) and some mud spots.
    I just think Mudfest can get too crazy with all those huge rigs.

    Hello,
    I agree with what Fink said. It would be awesome to have a place like Citrus down here. It's about 6 hours to get there from my house. The following links are from 2 areas in Miami that I went to. Unfortunately, the second 2 vids are on FPL property and it was closed for a while. Ofcourse, I can always go by & check it out in case anyone wants to go. There are a few other places down here to off-road but they are muddy. Ofcourse, I went in August during the 2nd rainiest season on record for Miami so going in February should be drier.

    Also, on Youtube enter Miami Off-road & Homestead Humps. There is better footage of these areas with ATV's & trucks driving through them.
    :)

    If would be fun to find a place down here but speaking about you getting new tires and rims what do you plan on doing with the old set. I need to find a sport rim and tire as I had a little issue with turning radius a few nights ago:eek:.

    I did. I had them for about a week and I was offered almost twice what I paid for them. I bought them wholesale from one of my vendors who hooked me up with a great price. It helped me buy my diff so I am happy. I think I'm gonna leave my current steel wheels for now. Eventually I will look to buy a set of 17" Tacoma 5 spoke or 17" FJ 6 spoke wheels with 275/70r17 BFG A/T's. I'll see what I do when I am ready but I am on no hurry.

    No did some minor trimming to the fenders and installed my on board air kit. Going to the west coast this weekend might go look for some mud if the fishing sucks
