    Well me and 2 friends decided to go on an off road trip to the iron range off road park in Gilbert MN this past weekend what a blast definately best vacation ive been on. The jeep and the tracker are owned by my 2 friends I just went along for the ride and used my truck to tow the jeep. Hopefully I will have a K5 blazer or bronco to bring along next year.

    Most def. The trails were preety tight and all the trees along the trails had all the bark rubbed off from people hitting the trees. Thats why my plan is to get an old K5 or bronco thats already dented and beat so I wont cry when the body gets dented rubbing against the rocks and trees.

    They have anymore hardcore trails there? I am going to the Badlands in Attica, IN this weekend as we do every year. I love going off road, its about my only hobby when I am not working.

    Heres my rig, unfortunately it has not moved since 10/07 since I have not had time or desire to work on it.

    How she looks now wasting away in the barn.:(

    Awe, memories. Just curious, why'd you trailer the Jeep? It looks driveable.

    Long gone are the days of driving my wheeling rig anywhere. I trailer it everywhere it goes.

    If you don't have to rely on it to get home, you are going to be much more relaxed and fearless towards actually trying different trails and routes.

    The trails are way way to tight for a fullsize if you care about the body at all. Plus I couldnt risk breaking the truck it was the tow rig home.

    Definately we did almost all the trails but there was about 3 (teds revenge money talks and the UA alley) that were just too extreme for anything under 35" tires. I dont know if you read petersons 4 wheel and off road magazine but they were at this very park back in 2004 and they named the UA alley after them really tough trail for mildy built rigs.
