    Default "rocks!"

    I got invited to wheel with the "Legendary Civilian Jeepers" club yesterday.
    Great bunch of guys! And a great time wheeling!

    One rig made my CJ with 4" lift and 33" tires look like a Tonka Truck!



    We hit a lot of the rocky trails. (Gee, an old iron mine pit, where do the rocks come from??)

    Can ya tell were up north?



    I made my tie rod look like a horse shoe We got it straightened out, and I slid my Hi-Lift jack handle over it, to keep it from bending again until I can fix it



    Other than my tie rod, this XJ blew an axle joint. At least it was at the end of the day!

    We were at the Iron Range OHV park, in Gilbert, MN http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/ohv/trail_detail.html?id=13]***

    Yeah, that big rig started out life as a 197? Dodge Power Wagon. The guy did an awsome job building it, but it's HUGE!

    Cool pix! I have heard of using the HiLift handle as a fix but have not seen it used on the trail. Nice job. Looks like fun!

    Looks like an awesome place to wheel. I read about that place in one of my offroad magazines about 4 months ago.

    It's gotten some press, and it was MN first OHV park. They did one of the 'Ultimate Adventures" at the park, and even named one of the trails "UA Alley" I don't recall which DVD it is (UA #4 I think)

    It's in the works to expand the park, making it about 4 times the size it is now

    Right now, there can be 60-80 trucks in the park, and you may only see 3 or 4 during the day! It's fairly big now!

    Nice photos, looks like a fun place to wheel...BTW we always wrap duct tape around the HiLift Handle, cause when you get back to the parking lot some kid will always come ask you about it and you can come up with some cool story about duct tape holding your axle together, or lets you bounce off rocks better or what ever your imaginantion can come up with. That and it keeps the handle from rattling
