The Lone Ranger – 1st ORT 6/6/2011 SIJA Jeep Jam at SMORR

I finally accumulated most of the photos from this weekend into one spot. I must say, SMORR is by far the nicest private off road park that I’ve ever been too. I really wish it wasn’t 4 hours away, but I will be making another trip down there in the future.

All and all, we covered about 20 miles of trails while we were down there:

Setup camp in the shade:

And went for a quick cruse around the park, stopping to play on double whammy a bit (didn’t have the tires aired down enough, so it was a no go this time):

Then I followed this guy up Rocky Road:

Somewhere along Rocky Road, I got my first body damage, I’m still not sure what rock got me, but it tagged the door/cab and pushed the corner of the bed back some:

Hammer fix to get it to stop rubbing:

The next day we wandered all over the park:

Youtube of a hill climb and coming down a waterfall (The Ranger shows up at the end of both obstacles).

Somewhere during the day, the rear tires really started munching on my bed, and the drivers side now had some damage as well:

So that’ll need to be taken care of sometime soon.

All and all, I’m pretty dang happy with how well it worked out. I’ve got some things to fix, but they’re fairly minor (Rear LSD Blows, Rear is too soft, got a squeaky u joint, to name a few). I can’t describe how nice it was to cruise down there, wheel the poo out of it, then cruise back without worry (all with the A/C and radio blasting).

Needless to say, I’m encourage about the wheeling future of this truck, and its future trip to MT this year
