There aren't any new posts since early Summer. C'mon guys, gals let's see those pic's! I miss them. I really like seeing where you all have been and your adventures off-roading. I know ya'll haven't parked those rigs. And I know some of you live in or near the desert and go out frequently. So let's see dem pic's!!

I go "offroading" in my Willys Jeep all the time, but it's not a squarebody, so I dont bother mentioning it.
Took my blazer for a rip around the yard the other day, but that's it. Not really offroading.

I was supposed to go out with the off road club yesterday- but wife and youngest daughter have covid. Pretty much a flu with a cough. Didn't want to transport it to the older guys in the club so stayed home. Plus it has been raining a lot. Where they are going is bottomless clay. Stuff doesn't come off- unless it is in your eyes when your laying under it working.

Went out with the club yesterday and found some snow. About half the guys (new members) didn't really have their rigs built up. Open differentials, smaller tires. So didn't go as far as we normally go. Still had fun. Let them go in the deeper stuff and get stuck. Again and again. :Big Laugh: You don't know what you are capable of until you try. And good practice recovering them and getting them turned around on the trail. And it is good motivation for them to start investing in some upgrades if they want and can afford to do it.

Also we got to play around with those "off road recovery boards".

Stock photo of someone using it in sand. And it would probably work better in sand- but they did work in snow. However- if you have open differentials it was VERY hard to get them wedged under both tires equally. Most of the time just one of the tires would slip and then the vehicle wasn't able to pull it up and onto them. Works much better with lockers or a limited slip.

Also had one guy show up on these:

Thought it would do well in the deep snow. They didn't. Now there is many many different types of snow... and maybe yesterday just wasn't the type of snow these tires liked. He was aired down to 6 psi and got stuck within 20' of where they stopped plowing the road.

I've always hated those nittos in all aspects, especially the old ones.
