    Why would anyone think to discriminate a Liberty that actually goes offroad? We're all a different breed here, mostly all mutts that pedigree BS is overrated and most rigs are more akin to the one piece at a time Cadillac. Welcome Ascender, I like your priorities.

    That's what I like about this club we're all grouped together.

    I try to be methodical about my modding these days. I spent a lot more money on my Park Avenue than I should have because I had to pull out a set of expensive rockers when I finally got a cam instead. So the gears were on the list from the moment I started planning my lift, and they went in before I did the rest of the work. Trail Quest up in Plain City did the gear install at a pretty reasonable price. Turns out that, in spite of the rest of the thing being in terrific shape, the front diff was full of milkshake, so the gear install probably saved me a lot of money.

    Maybe not here, but I have gotten plenty of comments about why I would bother with a Liberty. I always laugh, knowing what these little things can actually do. I'll worry about what people think when they pay my bills. Glad to find a positive place to hang out!

    I like diversity myself. It would be rather boring if everyone had the same rig with the same capabilities.

    You can get a lot of design and product research information by riding with a variety of vehicles with different suspension designs. With this group you'll see all kinds of rides, that's the best part, Ron.

    So I just sent up camp in Columbus a couple of days ago and I was wondering when the next meeting will be? Its not the same thing as the novice trail rides, correct?

    Hi all, new forum member here. Born and raised in toledo, moved to cbus in 2000.

    i previously owned (mid 90's) a 78 cj7 w/ 304 and 32's, glass, front loop on cage, all cage and seats tied to frame, as ALL should have, metal or fiberglass!!! Lets face it, that metal is thin. Motor was slightly built, all else stock. Sold that years ago, in the late 90's. Got the bug last year and bought a 85 cj. 6 cyl, holley 390 and weber intake with headers. 4.5 lift at time of purchase, only 3" now w/ 33's. Stock drivetrain being a t5 trans, dana 300 with a dana 30 upfront and the BS amc 20 out back. I have been fixing all the PO's mistakes just to get it to run/STEER correctly!!!!! (long story there, posted a little in the jeep pics thread)). Its steers great NOW, can do 55 on hwy and take honds off....NO WOBBLE . (a little "veering" during shifting, i think short wheelbase issues).

    I would consider myself a very advanced novice to moderate skilll level, but that can be a bit subjective at times. With the old jeep I often attended local events with the local shop(s). Poker runs, trails, charity ect.

    That said.......

    i would like to attend a "novice ride" ASAP, and from what I read, as a NON paying member, Im still allowed a trailride 1x? Something like that. Please let me know what i may or may not be understanding. Looking fwd to riding some trails around here....i dont know of many.

    Any dates for the above rides?

    Thanks

    Steve

    Hi all! Ron here, I was driving the RED Dodge Pickup on Saturday's novice ride. I got the forum addy from Rex, so I can check-in with the group.

    I had a fantastic time with everyone on Saturday, and am amazed at everything my truck made it through. Hosed off the truck yesterday and inspected it underneath, NO damage or drips! I just need to fix the clips holding the air dam on the front, and mildly straighten the side-steps.

    Will anyone be posting up pictures or video from the trip?

    Hello Everyone,

    I wanted to drop in and introduce myself. I got the itch to off-road a few years ago when a buddy of mine from MI took me to Bundy Hill with his heavily modded Samurai. At the first chance I got after that I purchased a 4x4, which was an s10 zr2. I took the s10 to Bundy, PA back trails and a farm trail (approved use). The s10 proved to be unreliable in the long run, blowing a head gasket after 30k miles of pain and agony trying to keep it going. However during that time I ended up purchasing my Xterra.

    I have put about 20k miles on the Xterra now. I've spent more money modding it than repairing it thankfully, which has allowed me to really enjoy it's ability to get off-road. I've been to Rush, Haspin and some Pennsylvania back trails. I'd like to get the Xterra to Bundy, Badlands, and back to Rush. I have a lot of plans for the Xterra including a SAS long ways down the line. For now it's both my daily and my 'toy' as the wife puts it. I look forward to meeting with you all soon if given the opportunity, sadly I've missed the recent novice rides due to work conflicts.

    Some info about the X is in my sig, complete info in my profile.

    Thanks!
