He was selling it because he was moving to CO for a bartending job. Couldn't find a job here, which was kinda nuts.


Can't you get those nuts and bolts at Ace? I redid my cross member bolts with ones from Ace.

I don't know what size they are.. I was just in an accident so kinda limited on wrenching right now. otherwise i would take one out my Jeep to get the size. no biggy,

you interested in selling the sound bar in the cargo area?

Gotcha. Well I know the cross member bolts are M10x1.5. If you're doing a drop you'll just need to get like 2" bolts.


I think I could sell it. My red jeep may already have one but its upholstered over and I've never checked. There's no speakers in it so idk.

Haha! Sorry, I didn't realize you posted it here too. Yeah those are my extended family members. I'd ride with them before I ride with anyone else I've ever ridden with. Lots of experience between the 4 of them. His kids have probably had more seat time then a lot of members on here.

So then the legal battle began and in the PNW "tree huger" is a thing of pride...so folks who hit the trails began getting slammed left and right for abusing the land. Some rightfully so, others not so much...but in the end it turned the entire state against the offroad community so going "off trail" was out of the question if you wanted to keep any trails open and avoid legal action.
Yeah, hopefully Florida will never adopt that dynamic. Although, there are a lot of rednecks here too, so I don't think the threat of that is very real.

They were also near houses. I'm not sure if they just don't want people cutting close to someone's house? I mean, the area is very worn in and it looks like there's a lot of traffic through it.


The pin is actually labeled as a "KOA off roading area."


The KOA area has a sign at the 472 entrance and someone dumped a huge pile of glass there... No Trespassing, hunting or fishing.. it's high on the palm tree and looks fairly new..

i didn't go on the golf course side

I don't think I ever tried to go in on that side. I went in off Minnesota. Did you look over there by chance?

Yea i went in from 472 to both sides, golf course side is fun but when i got home posted that place on FB and someone i wheel with says,


that looks to be Wellington used to be able to ride their till sum punk *** kid stole a piece of heavy equipment took it out their and torched it.. but now it's ride at your own risk I've gotten my trespasses warning won't be going out their again.. and across the way is what the kids know as KOA another area that's being watched due to the dumb *** kids out their fighting every weekend.

I won't be going back there.. will stick to ONF and other legal spots

What's everyone's take on upgraded steering as far as the Y setup on the front. Was looking at B.lees but has heims and have heard mixed reviews on running those on a daily.
