Haha yea I can imagine, you guys went pretty much as far as you could get from SoCal and still be in the US. Both geographically, and socially.

Hey Bender! welcome to Maine! If your gonna be in Maine for a while, go to to Lewiston, they have an off-road park down there called all wheels off road park. pretty cool place. lots of different trails to take. Or you can go up north and ride on back roads and old skitter trails. Theres a lot of exploring you can do in Maine and its a lot of fun to ride around and look for deer or moose or something and just explore Maine as one beautiful state. hope you have a good time while your up!

Thanks! We looked into All Wheels Off Road park, but the DEP just shut them down. They are also trying to shut Rocky Mountain Terrain Park down now too. Kind of a bummer! So, we have been exploring as much as we can for more trails.

that is a bummer, the all wheels off road park is a blast. ive spent all day out there. your probably down in southern maine, if you end up traviling up north, a good road to go exploring and looking at nature and looking for moose and deer and whatever else. go to K.I. its up in brownville, maine

Jerp looks to be more in it's natural environment as opposed to the sun baked desert dirt. I hope the new place treats you and your family well.

Newest parts for the build................pocket flares from Barricade Off-Road. Maine laws require the full width of the tires to be covered. With my Pit Bull Rockers and stock flares the tires stick out about 3 inches. These should just cover it up enough to pass inspection. Hoping to install them this weekend!

New flares are officially installed! A few flex shots to check for tire clearance.

They look almost like a hybrid between the Bushwaker pocket flares and the flares. Obviously quite a bit wider, though. Looks great, bud!

That is what we liked about them, wider while still maintaining the stock look. Not a fan of big bulky flares like the Bushwacker pocket flares.

New treads for the JKU! Pit Bull's PBX A/T Hardcore tires. Digging the looks and performance, super aggressive for an all terrain tire. A couple shots of the new meats!
