Rock Crawling

Ok I give up, so where does everyone go rock crawling? I have been looking for a place preferably in Grant County to go crawling for a few weeks now and everything I see that looks fun to crawl over is either private property, Wild Life lands, behind a locked gate or is restricted in some other fashion.

 

I find it really hard to believe that there is no public access to place that a person can go crawling on in Grant County. I hope this isn't like the "golden fishing hole" that everyone keeps to themselves. So if anyone out there would like to share a place to go crawling, please contact me by email or better yet register in our forums and post there. If you don't want to make a public post you can send me a private message in the forums as well.

 

I'm not limiting locations to Grant County, anything in eastern WA would be fine. Hill climbing would be nice as well. I'm just kind of burned out on sand and would like to do something else for awhile.

Ramp Travel Index

In light of the fact that I bought a new Jeep I thought I would hop online real quick and look up the specs for building a ramp to check the RTI score of my Jeep. No big deal right? I never would have thought that a search for the build spec for an RTI ramp would have been so exhaustive. It took awhile, but I finally found the specs to build a 20 RTI ramp. From what I read on the sites I visited, 20 is the "official" angle for the ramp.

 

I thought to myself that if it was this hard for me to find, other people are probably equally frustrated with finding them as well. I converted what I found into an Adobe PDF file so that others can download and print the instructions for themselves.

 

Hopefully I can build a ramp of my own soon. When I get it built I'll post a notification and those that want can come on over and check out their own RTI score.

 

For now you can download the build instructions for your own build.

 

Enjoy :)

Joe's 08 Rubicon

I am one happy boy! I was able to trade in my 07 Sahara for an 08 Rubicon today. All I can say is it freakin R0X0RZ! It can keep up with 2000 Wrangler with a Rubicon Express 4" Lift kit on an RTI (Ramp Travel Index) test.

 

Here is a quick video of it while my wife and I were moving personal items from one rig to the other.

Night Maneuvers Part: 2

Well, we bought a new camcorder. It is a JVC Everio HDD MG360 and it it did a bit better in the dark. I think its going to do a great job during the day. At any rate here are some videos of adults acting like teenagers.

 

Viewer discretion is advised.

Adults Language and Shear Stupidity Abound

 

Video:

p.s. Yes I know, I need to get a tripod to take more steady video. But that's the fun part, learning how to do it right!

Night Maneuvers Part: 1

I want to apologize for not having very much new content up on the site lately. Work has been kicking my ass and family life has been hectic as well. Willie, Lori, Anne and I did manage to make it out to the Moses Lake Sand Dunes last weekend and again this weekend. We got some still pics and some video for everyone to check out.

 

We want to thank the latest generation of drivers and operators for allowing us to get some great content of them tearing up the sand. I also want to thank Willie and Lori for bringing her nifty new camera that allowed us to capture the stills and video. Willie was a little shaky on some pictures but they turned out way cool regardless. The man has an eye for the psychedelic.

 

We are going to be working on some techniques that will get us some better footage in the future. Particularly me getting my Day Liter's working and maybe busting out the spotlight ;) Night time isn't the easiest thing in the world to shoot in, but you can definitely hear us having fun in the video. I will say this, everything we do will just keep getting better and better so be sure to come back and visit often.

 

 Thanx a million, y'all R0x0rZ!

New easier to remember web address!

After receiving feedback from guests to the site, one thing kept coming up, everyone thought the web address was to long. Trying to remember and typing out "foxxxtracker4wd.com" wasn't very much fun for folks, so I made a change. I was able to secure a new URL for the site that is much easier remember and easier to type out.

www.FT4WD.com

Guests coming to the site under the old web address will be automatically directed here. So if you sent a friend you know to the old web address, there's nothing to worry about, they will still make it here. I will be leaving the redirect page up for the next year to make sure everyone finds their way to the new address.

Moses Lake Sand Dunes

Looks like the Moses Lake Sand Dunes are starting to see a bit more action. Anne and I were out Saturday and saw several ATV riders out tearing up the sand. While we were out there we did some shameless promotion of the site and handed out a few cards. We also took some pics of the guys and gals out having a good time.

 

Just kickin' it A little hang time. YAH MULE YAH MULE! Shootin' the bowl!

 

You can check the rest of the pics out here:

Cabin Fever: Part 2!!

Well Beings that I been stuck inside for awhile now, I decided to make some rather substantial changes to our website. There a several graphical changes, upgraded forums and new content. Please stop and register in the forums and check out the new Google Maps that are being implemented in the ORV Facilities section.

 

We also want to let people know that we are working on getting a digital video camera so that we can start making FT4WD movies of all the places that we go, from the sand to the mountains, so check back periodically for new video content.

 

After revamping the site, my wife and I decided to go and check out the Moses Lake Sand Dunes to see how much snow was still hanging around and were pleasantly surprised to find there was very little snow left. The dunes are fairly hard packed from all the run off water and snow and they're not excessively choppy right now either. We saw several folks riding quads and a few bikes out there as well. We will be out and about again getting in some much needed time off road.

 

We would like to invite anyone that wants to come on outside and play in the dirt. Spring is just about here and there is no reason not to get a head start. Register in the forums and let us know that your interested in getting back outside again.
