Wheelin Trip Pictures- Lots of Pics

My friends and I have started an offroad club that has blown up recently. People have been joining left and right. We took our annual camping/wheeling trip as a group and ran some trails up in Massachusetts over 2 days. Everyone's rigs are extremely capable, but the ranger actually outshined most of the full size guys. The steep ledge in some of the pics is called "gatekeeper" fittingly as its the first obstacle on the trail. After most of the bigger guys failed, the ranger walked right up and at the end of the day it was 1 of only 3 rigs to make it. Overall a great trip with some serious wheelin and breakage, enjoy the pics.

Tore my Trac Bar off my frame on day 1, all my welds held the frame itself tore in 2 spots ripping the arm off and leaving my axle free to do what it wanted. Luckily someone brought a stick welder and fixed it at camp and I was back on the trail for day 2.

Yup ended up holding onto it. Was gonna build something older but for the time being I'm enjoying my rig thats as capable as the bigger rigs but still has AC and is waterproof inside haha. 1 tons and loss of everything behind the cab will come soon. Truggy plans are in the works.

Drove there, broke, fixed, wheeled, drove home. The trailer was just to get me from the trail to the campsite on day 1. Its a nice area to wheel, and the best part was these trails are old state roads so they are perfectly legal. The are however impassable with anything less than very capable trucks.
