Here is one of the videos from saturday. Others are still being edited to remove the songs you can hear from my radio so you tube will allow them. I didnt add song over these ones so that you can hear our stupid remarks

this is a boring video but it is part of a less known road in the same area as the above video. Not much of a challenge but it had a couple spots that gave me issues in the kia.


Beavers have a dam built that has the road flooded so no way through unless on a dual sport bike. We can fix that...

Havent updated this thread in awhile. Havent done much other than a couple local 4wheeling trips since my last post.

on 3-21-15 I took it out to a local offroad part. Most of the trails there are tight. I managed to dent a door and tear both bumper covers off.

I didnt get any photos myself, just one short vid of me on a hill. But I browsed facebook and uploaded the pics I found to my websites gallery.


Pics are here

Here is my worthless video:

Here is a photo of the above hill.


I was obviously, in one of the smaller rigs for the day.




One more phoot from a logged portion of the park.

I am not a big fan of this particular offroad park.

Not really anything that will stop my toyota other than mud but the trails are cut so tight that you cant run a stock or near stock vehicle through that you care about. But a friend of mine owns the place so I go to show support.

Everything I could fit it on, it did for the most part. I made it through the muck in the below photos. ( no photos to prove it though) Those are 38" tires in the pics btw





I took it to another local park on 5-3-15. Place is similar to the one from 3-21-15 as in its a tight fit for most vehicles, and what isnt tight is beyond the capabilities of a near stock vehicle, but another friend owns this park so I go to support aswell. Not issues this trip except I lost front bumper cover again. I just keep ziptie it back on.

Put the winch on today. Im not real pleased with the ugly hole I had to cut in the bumper for the free spool lever. I was hoping to be able to take the bolt out of the end of th winch and rotate that whole assembly down a hole so the lever was down next to the fairlead however the holes are not in a symetrical pattern. So it is what it is for now. Im going to trim the hole a little better and put some edge trim on it so it looks better.


Sorry I didnt get pics of the plate and such I made, broke me cell phone yesterday. took this one with the knockoff go pro after I remembered it took still shots.

Been working on a bumper. Still have another day of fab left on it but it is coming along very nicely.

Bumper is almost to nice for a kia.











Also since my last update I installed some 1.5" wheel spacers.
