When you change the radiator it may be a good time to get pics of how you have it mounted.

I updated the first post in this thread to show the location as Southington Offroad Park instead of Wellsville.

First I heard today that it was moved from Wellsville. That's great to hear. Wellsville was awesome in the past. More interested in being legit now.

If I don't ride a bike there and jump in with someone else I'll be in my stock FJ Cruiser. It has a 2" lift (coil spacers) and also has 1.25" wheel spacers and stock-sized mud tires...but otherwise stock. We took it to Attica and did pretty much everything in the quarry on the A-Trac and not locking the axle. And not spilling my coffee with my inexperienced 18-yo son driving.

My method for wheeling my B2 through it was to hammer it and see what parts were left at the top. Might be a fun weekend.

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

redbird....you never been there?.....i rode bikes there and haspin and a private place in wabash quite a bit when i was younger.


its apparently the wellsville of indiana now. i hope to go there before too long.


those kids remind me of me....nice to see young animals still having fun exploring the mechanical limits of machines...
