cliffs

I was just it the Cliffs and had a great time. I am so proud of my wife. She drove all the way up the Carnage trail but had to winch out the top. I know that is not saying alot but it was the first real trail she ever did. The jeep is just a 4 banger 5 speed with opens front and back on 33s. It was an awsome day. I mite have to buy another jeep. I just had to tell some of you out there.

for dave, what he said, he dont like mud, which is some personal perferences. mud dont bother me, it a part of fun. badland have lot of more drier trails and more rocks, which many wheelers seem to prefer as they stay much cleaner.

and we wont leave you stuck in mud! we will tug you out and keep going to have fun! i never got stuck in mud actually, only time i got stuck that the hill's just too steep and slippery or some hill that's so sharp that my belly kept get hung up and stop me from going forward, but i can go back though

i dont want to turn this thread into a flaming each other

but how do u know i have loud exhaust? at first i had nothing (pretty much almost a open header as it was cut out at where the cat was) but i never went wheeling with it like that, i just installed a Flowmaster super 44 to help some with loudness.

one hard drop on my belly on my jeep at cliffs actually did something to the F44 which made it not so "muffling" as well before the hard slam, hmm

however im deaf if you dont know, which loudness often dont bother me.... but can be a problem to some others though

They will check you if it is too loud. in the beginning they checked every rig that came in. not so much any more. it is geared more towards the quads and bikes

thats what i figured but i wasnt sure
do they just have some db meter? where do they read from? last year out community college hosted a loud exhast competition at a car show and about the 5th vehicle in their meter rolled craps it was not a cheap one either
anyway they were measuring 6" from the exhaust tip... i think it should be like 6ft behind the vehicle but thats just my $.02

The last few times we were there the only thing the dude at the gate asked was if we had beer. Didn't check my tires, didn't listen to my exhaust. The rules are pretty relaxed. I don't like mud! But found a way to have fun.

Aww come on Dave mud isn't as dirty as the hoes in Martucky you are chasing. It is alot of fun there, but I like mud. Too bad they won't let me bring my red truck there. They have some people working for them that are picky about the rules but most aren't.
