I also drive a 90s luxury suv, but not as fancy as the Lexus. The wrangler guys can look down on us all they want, we'll still be wheeling along them but with power leather seats and fancy options and a comfortable ride!

Big Grin Thank you. Yeah man and cruising at 80mph to and from the wheeling is also a plus. I originally bought this last Sept as my winter beater but after putting around 10k on it in less than a year I can say I barely use the car anymore LoL.

Heck yeah Smithy!! I've been hooked since I crawled up the old ski resort on Maxian Rd about a year ago. I had been trying to find places and ppl to go wheeling with ever since. But it wasn't until I started delivering the Port Crane route and saw the STORC sticker on a 4Runner(Patche's i think) that led me to BT and this forum. There was a few Jeep clubs around but they didnt seem too welcoming of my CruiserConfused

Saw the Lexus at B-T when we were there last I believe. Not something I'd expect to see on a trail but has to be a whole lot nicer than a squeaky, crunchy old Cherokee!

Are you planning on putting rock slides on it? They will make quick work of the body on the longer wheelbase vehicles.

Jeep clubs often seem to be wrangler only .. I have a Cherokee and it's not a "real" jeep you know Wink

It's a great time with a wide variety of trails and all vehicle types are welcome. Last year we broke into 5 groups from basically bone stock on up to heavily modified with each group hitting the trails appropriate for their build/skill level. It's a family friendly event with food and drawings afterwards. Last year we had 50-60 rigs of all types. Despite the rain it was a fantastic event with tons of great people. Go to twistedaxles.org for more info and to sign up if you're interested.

Just avoid the trees and the deep water. Found that one out the hard way last year. Twisted axles is a good group for sure - lots of wheeling. Eventually I'm going to make it back up to your place scott Tongue

Thanks for the tips Miller, yeah I'm def getting armored up. Front and rear diff guards, belly plate and sliders, lot of good choices out there I'm having trouble choosing. Any suggestions for local powdercoating?

Hey Angel. A really good time Wheeling with you and Ed. I think your Lexus surprised a lot of people I know it did me. Looking at Mike's videos you did a lot more than I was aware of... was awesome btw. Hope to see you at other events.

Yeah Eric we definitely had an amazing time, I don't know if it's always that perfect. Since this our first time wheelin with others we didn't know what to expect, but honestly being able to share the experience with such awesome group of likeminded individuals made it that much more epic. I went back to driving the big Brown package car last Tuesday so I'm not gonna have a lot of free time as our peak season quickly approaches, but I really I'm looking forward to the next ride. My hat is off to Josh and Mike for helping everyone along and finding us some great terrain to play on, I learned alot that Sat LoL. Even I was a bit surprised, kept thinking "I'm not gonna make it" then she'd prove me wrongBig Grin

RE: New from Binghamton
Scored a winch and bumper this past weekend, guy from Trumansburg parting out an FJ80.
           

Lots of grinding to take off all the powdercoating, but it came out pretty decent

RE: New from Binghamton
Bumper looks good. Cool Really like how it tucks under the grille. Gets the winch on there but you don't lose much approach angle. That's going to help a ton off road - you can climb on or over things better with it.

What brand winch?

Highly recommend upgrading all of the battery cables. I used these terminals http://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/product...-terminals and various cables from tractor supply. Made a HUGE difference.

Cool tnx for the tip, I really wasnt ready for the winch but the bumper deal came up within 1hr drive and I couldnt pass it. He kinda threw it in since he was so tired from pulling the bumper by himself that morning lol. Some never heard off Aussie brand I think, its 3yrs old and the po said it never failed him.
