Lets see those ORV toys!!

I know a few people on here have to be into some sort of ORV sport; 4 wheelers, sxs, jeeps, rock crawlers, dune buggies, mud...

Personally I am into rock crawling and jeeps! I also own a Honda four wheeler, but mostly use it to cruise around my parent's ranch. I've had a few other offroad toys; jeep JKU (37" tires), land rover disco II, scout II, and some others over the years, but now I'm down to the 2 jeeps.

My first is a 1978 CJ-5- had it since high school, did all the work to it myself. It mostly just sits, but a few times a year I pull it out and go cruising.

This is pic is a few years old, but the jeep still looks the same, just more dust from sitting in the

Second is my Rock crawler- 1999 jeep TJ. I have had it for almost 9 years, took 4 years to build so I have been wheeling it right at 5+ years.

I, like cowracer also had one. 81 CJ7 on 42's. I turn wrenches for a living 50 hours a week and coming home to something else that needs work got old. Had a lot of fun with it, made lots of good friends, but the last two years I owned it, this was it's home.

By the end of our run of wheeling we would just go to the tough stuff first thing, and if something broke, we went back to camp, made food, and just sat around the fire. Figured we could do it a lot cheaper without the Jeeps! So almost the entire crew that wheeled decided to get (back) into biking. Most of us had done it at one point in life or another.

Largely, the parts are less expensive. It's a lot more fun and gets used much more. Burn off a few calories before we put them back in around the campfire! And yes, I bought a toyhauler for bicycles, these things are just too expensive to use as bumpers.
