Re: I wanna go wheeling.

Tampico/Nasty Creek/Cowiche Mill meeting up at the Church parking lot (at the Tampico Y) would probably work good Just some FYI for anyone else that tows their junk to the hills like me, the Tampico Church has posted their parking lot as a tow away zone for unauthorized vehicles :( This used to be ...

Early Season Snow Run 11-14-2020

The weather reports had been telling tale of impressive amounts of snow at the higher elevations, so we decided we should investigate. Meeting up at the West Richland Maverik for the ritualistic coffee and burrito, we launched in darkness around 0630, hoping to be among the first to touch the newly ...

Minion XJ Shakedown Run 11-07-2020

Loaded up the boys' XJ and took it up to Naches for a little shakedown run. Thanks to the recent snow in the upper elevations, we got into a leeeeetle more than we bargained for as the day evolved... Overall though it was a hoot and the little XJ, and it's young pilot, performed admirably all things...

28-30ft Gooseneck

Does anyone have access to a 28-30ft flatdeck gooseneck trailer? The 24ft unit that I use simply isn't long enough for the boy's XJ and the JLU-R, but I don't really want to shell out the $$ to buy one... I'd be happy to rent/lease/beg/borrow/steal the few weekends per year that I would need it thou...

Re: Unexpected Loop Run 9-27-2020

Gaia GPS forest service map shows 1302 going completely through that red circle on your map and extending all the way to Jumpoff 2 Lookout. Directly to the right of your red arrow, there is a small trail that heads North straight up to the same lookout. Yep. Gaia is what Jimmy was looking at, I had...

We intended to find the mythical "gap" trail between Ahtanum/Rim Rock and FS-1302... What we found was, well, let's just say you can't get there from here, and now we know for sure. But it turns out you can run from the North Fork to Louie Way Gap and back to the Nasty Creek Corrals in a h...

Anyone have any front extended sway bar links for an XJ or TJ laying around? Don't really care if they are quick-disconnect or not, but I'm being lazy and cheap and don't want to buy aftermarket or fab my own... Hit me up if you have anything laying around taking up space? Thanks!

Re: WTB: TJ/XJ/YJ Wheels and LT tires

I could probably get away with a different set of tires/wheels that I already have in the shop, but I'd need a set of lift coils or coil spacers to allow them to fit... anybody have any TJ/XJ front coil spacers laying around?

Looking for a very inexpensive set of LT-series tires on wheels with 5x4.5 bolt pattern for a last-minute engagement this coming weekend...

It's the only trail in the area that has any real technical wheeling aspect to it, and it just so happens to be combined with some spectacular scenery. Due to some recent vandalism in the area, the trail had been closed b...
