I'm intrested to find out what type of off-roading everyone does, even if you are a pothole 4x4.

I like sand dunes and desert racing and sometimes after a good rain mudbogging (of course i live in Yuma, AZ where it doesn't rain too often).


I HATE FORDS!!!

Here in TN we have mostly sandy, rocky trails. The base is sandstone around here. When it rains we can get into really gooey mud. I also commute 70 miles each way to work down backroads. I guess that would make most of my terrain tar and chip or gravel.

I like to get out on a desert dirt road and open it up. I guess that makes me a Baja wanabe, but I don't get out to west Texas much anymore so I guess I'm a pothole 4X4. I doubt now that I'll ever lift it. There are rocks, sand and sometimes even mud out west Yakker.

Its true, "Rust never sleeps." :(

I live in Colorado so I have access to every type of trail. I like mud mixed with a nice rock garden
but I would have to say that I really enjoy snow covered trails the most. but then again any trail
with a beer and dinner after wards is good

Dent King the beer comes after you're done, right?

Well in AZ we have it all and we can get it all on one trail ride. Last month when I rented the X we had a weekend ride. We started out Friday morning at Lake Pleasant and drove all day (playing along the way and breaking tie rods) to a place called Crown King in the Bradshaw mountains. We had dust, dirt, wash board road, some hill climbs, and some rock climbs and 90+ degree heat. The next day it started snowing, and snowing and snowing...most of the guys went back to Phoenix, my rider (eltee88) and I continued in the mountains into Prescott and ended up in 3-5 inches of snow, then slush, then mud, then wet roads, then dry roads. In about 36 hours we drove through everything. It was a fun trip and sorry you all missed it.

I like the sand but mostly just the dezert roads and lake beds of southern Ca. The dezert is my home away from home. My truck also carries my bike along thats its main use lately, besides to work and the beach and back.

As I live in Utah, Moab is, so to say, my backyard. That should say it all...

Ummmm Beer!

I wish Moab was in my backyard! But, in West-Middle Georgia theres just mud. Alot of it. Last summer when it NEVER rained it was all sand. Some areas just north of me do have some rocks. There are also some places that have lots of hills. The only problem is that there are no public places to ride. Luckily I have some friends who have rich friends who will let us ride on their 800+ acres of land.

This is about the most difficult thing I could find...

I get in the mud mostly, there is not many rocks in WV, lots of gas company roads and rideaways so there are a few roads to do some high speed driving.

why not build both. You can have a fairly good time with IFS, sucks for playing but hell get a 4x4 IFS (hint nissan)A 3" lift, cut out the fenders, pack them with some swampers, leave the diff's stock, maybe change the ring and pinion, and beef up the engine. Don't forget safety equipment and the Mud flaps for the Hiway nazi's. This is the cheapest way to do it.
