So where are the best wheeling spots in Washington? The only spots I know of are Reiter Pit and a few little Mt. trails.

The only ones I've been to are Tahuya (over by Belfair, WA) , Evans Creek ( Above Carbonado, WA, by Mt. Ranieer) Elbe Hills ( by Elbe, WA) and then also Little Naches area, but I haven't been there in a few years.

Tahuya is by the far the most stocker friendly though. Alot of easier trails.

If you aren't afriad of a small amount of body damage, then Elbe, and Evans are much more fun I think.


I'd bee cool to have somebody else to wheel with too.

Are you that hard on the truck???

I've been wheeling a couple dozen times since September and haven't broken anything... I have the D35 front and 8.8 rear, but the 4.0L probably sufficient power to blow those to peices (D35 anyway). Other than that, all I've done is body damage.

No but I just replaced the grill and bumper because I hit a tree a while back and idk how long my transfer case is gunna last. It works right now but it makes some noise. The engine is fine though. And all depending on if I swamp it or not at those places.

Looking for spots myself Ive been to evans creek before and it is awesome. Just make sure you have good tires, the rocks will tear them up. My last adventure there I was with a buddy and I had a flat tire. So I get out to change the tire, put it in park set the brake and turned it off. I get done changing the tire and get going for another 4 hours of wheelin.But the I notice Im in four low, strange since when I stopped it was put into 2 high. My buddy decided to put it there so it wouldnt roll away and the damn thing locked up tight, but only in the left front where i was changing the tire. So after trying everything to get it unlocked I had to drive off the mountain with one locked hub and the others free. So I lost alot of gear oil out the overflow tube and after hitting every bump, hole, and divit it finally unlocked but the damage was already done. He never offered to help pay for the repair of the damage he did to it. Said it wasnt his fault. Just like I have always said, "keep your effin hands off my Ranger".
