Wow, letting your son drive. I suddenly had this sensation that we've been at this for a while.

A quick google search says Indiana.

You got my hopes up but I don’t think there is a open type off road park for full-size vehicles in Iowa.

Yeah, we have. My twins will be 16 next month. My oldest has been driving 2 years and his mom has been trying to beat calculus into his brain with a stick, but he's still more interested in his girlfriend.

My 13 y/o is a natural equipment operator. She drives everything. Track loader, backhoe.

My 8 y/o took out the wall of the house with the FJ. In the wide-open-spaces she was good. In the narrow confines of the 3 car garage--she became confused...

I always wanted to learn brick laying.

That seems to make my replacement of a garage door panel seem less meaningful somehow.

Glad I swung by to read Jim's take on the new ranger! Is a former ranger owner and newer Jeep wrangler owner welcome to come play?

If your a TRS member that has sold your Ranger / Bronco II for a different offroad vehicle, come and wheel with us anyway! We'd love to see you!

Sounds like a green light to me! :icon_thumby:

If my Ranger doesn't pan out I will probably have my F-150. :icon_bounceblue:

:yahoo: Somehow I completely blew over that part...

Throwing it out there as well, I will likely have 1-3 open seats in my jeep if people want to come but don't have a ride. Depnds on whether or not I put my backseat back in.
