Hello from Central Florida

Hey everyone. New to Ranger Forums and from central florida, about 20 miles north of Orlando. Truck is a 1997 Ranger STX 4.0 4X4 with 195k on the odometer. I bought it back in December already lifted with 33s and it runs great. Here's a few shots.

I used to wheel at a few local spots around here but development has gone through the roof and just about every piece of land has been bought up and something built on it. Closest good wheeling I know of is up in the Ocala Forest. There's also a couple mudholes in Deltona and east of Osteen on Osteen Maytown road, but I haven't been out to either one.

Sanford, cool. Do you know any good wheeling in the area, the places I used to know have turned into office buildings and businesses.

Rephrasing what schloesser said, I have a habit of playing hard if given the opportunity. Thanks to everyone. The people on this site are awesome!
