Just wanted to intro myself
Am a kind of newbie to off-road racing (was doing trophy-raiding before), participated in first FIA-approved race (about 250 miles total) in May '14 :
And some photos here:
Now completely rebuilding my Jimny to fight for top places next year:
1. Engine is replaced with 1.8L 125hp instead of 1.3L 86hp
2. Have just ordered a new King suspension on four 2.5 coilovers and bumpstops
3. Will also install additional gas tank before start of the season, cause last time I almost run out of fuel and had to slow down...
Am going to read this forum all through to learn

|dirty_drew||Lurked then joined. I'm going to college and working a pretty good gig as a designer/machinist/shop tech at a well known local gear shop that sells lots of Yukon shit and roundy round stuff. I pilot an 88 Bronco thats mostly stock with a mild lift. Big plans for it in the future as well as a "cheap" U4 worthy rig, once my loans are paid off of course|

Lurked for a while, now joined. guess I gots to check in.
Nor Nor CAL. Used to mob around the lake bed on a quad and help everyone get un-stuck. LOTS of high schoolers that didn't understand clay mud. and every so often the experienced testing a new mod in uncharted mud holes.
My rigs a 70 k20. 292 pushed out to a 312. quad rad with 4200cfm fans, recentered h1 wheels, cheapo military oz tires. factory locked eaton ho72 and the mystical dana 44 hd (5cf). 52/56" spring swap. oh and 4 gas tanks. i go long time.
Mainly wheel around here. always trying to find some cooler places. Went to high lakes and made it long lake when the truck was stock except 33" tires and everyone back there couldn't believe me (i'm 25, look young and dumb). bet they felt cool with their 40" tires and cut up yotas when i rolled up with a longbed and no lift. (they could go fast, my ride was 5mph cause of the rough ride).
think i'll be getting seatbelts soon.

Hey yall, lurked a bit then joined From the FSB forums but got tired of seeing Broncos being turned into mud rigs
I work at a pretty big gear shop that does drivelines for dirt track stuff mostly, and im graduating college this spring, looking to go out west or east to get into more trails and go fast stuff. My rig is a purty 88 Ford Bronco with 2" coils and 32" Falkens. Embarasses many of the stock Heeps around here

not exactly sure if I've posted in here before. new to fab and new to highly modified stuff. not new to dreaming and stalking this forum though. I know enough to get me in to trouble. Enough trouble that I've got myself stuck with no DD thinking I had the right plan.
