A quick google search says Indiana.

You got my hopes up but I donít think there is a open type off road park for full-size vehicles in Iowa.

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?

Sounds like a green light to me!

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

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.
