  1. Last week

  3. I am in Ashburn, and take the dive up to Tremont, PA a couple of times a year to go to Rausch Creek Off Road park. They have some really nice trails from easy greens to “buggy only” reds/purples. There is another park up there that I have not been to called AOAA. I hear good things about it. Good luck and don’t tackle the trails alone. Always have at least one other off road vehicle with you. Just saying it in case you were unaware of that. In fact Raush Creek won’t let you go out alone. They will add you to another group or make you stay in the parking lot.
  4. Picked up an old 1979 Delhi 1430 Jon Boat last week. Price was great for a project and included title... plan to get it water worthy & get to fishing with my sons. The trip to pick it up without a truck was fun to say the least... My 7yo says we need to drop the 351 from my 78 F150 into it & build a speedboat... Atleast he has vision lol!! Boat has been well used & has some scars from the rivers & being overloaded. I will be brazing the couple holes closed, checking all rivets for leaks, rebucking those that can, and replacing the others. Then sealing everything up with 3M 5200 Marine sealant. After that will follow a few coats of Wetlander Slick Bottom, and repaint the topside with a light color. I will also be building a new transom board, adding a 5hp outboard, trolling motor & fish/depth finder... Previous owners added a make-shift compartment that I’ll use for battery storage & other storage. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Hey Dewan. The closest public trails to Northern VA are in the GW National forest. Flagpole knob (by Harrisonburg) is a nice easy trail to get started. There are a few different trails around it to get up there and a few to get back down. There is also Peter’s Mill a little further down. There is a private camp ground/trail system in Gore VA (by Winchester) called The Cove. A local guy who runs a company called Big Dogs hosts events there. If you are going with a group of 10 rigs or more, you need to go through his company. If it is a smaller group, you can go without being part of one of his events. There is also Chaos Offroad park. Look them up. They have a small trail sustem right over the WV border. But their shop is in Winchester.
  6. Welcome to the site Dewan! What kind of off roading are you wanting to get into? I'm not too familiar with trails in Northern VA Area, maybe @gr8dain could help. I know many public trails atleast in my area in Southwestern VA, are kind of tight for a full size truck. Something I can suggest, that's a bit old-school, but how I got started, was to buy an Offroad/Trail Atlas at the local book store specific to Virginia. Granted many trails are closed to vehicles, still great way to scout stuff out especially if you also enjoy hiking. #1 Tip is to never go on any trail alone. Even if you know 100 people who said they've done it solo, I never recommend going alone. as what can go wrong will go wrong... I've received my fair share of late night calls asking for help to get off a mountain side due to a break down or getting stuck.
  7. Please do. I posed it on a fake rock at a new local dealership today.
  8. I love this old Jeep! If I make it out your way, We'll have to definitely touch base!
  9. Hey how’s it going, my name is Dewan. I recently got an F150 and I wanted to get into off roading, but I not sure on how to get started or where to go. I live in the Northern VA area and was wondering does anyone know of any good starter trails I can tryout, or any good tips? Would much appreciate the help.
  10. Took it for a tour around the back roads of Loudoun County with 3 other flat fenders
  11. Anybody looking to put disc brakes on their XJ or possibly TJ?? let me know. I have the backing plates , parking brake assemblies, and lines that go on rear end. The parking brakes are new. All that would be needed would be pads rotors and calipers. Sent from a van down by river

    What a week! Sick on Monday, went to go to Lowe's on Tuesday 5yr battery decided 5 1/2 yrs was enough, okay no problem, knew this was coming. What I didn't see coming was this. Had to work Wednesday, went to go and had trouble getting transmission to go into gear, finally got going, seems everything is ok , as I'm going through Salem it doesn't seem to shift right ,got to work and wouldn't go into reverse without some work. Got parked and checked fluid in trans , was a little over full. Left work seemed okay went into drive, shifted okay but that all was about to change as I went through Salem. Made it to the Cheesesteak factory and that was it , would not move. Pulled the dipstick to find a nice strawberry milkshake. Radiator decided the trans needed water. So I'm going to put a radiator in and take to Salem Automatic Transmission and get Robert to rebuild it. Sent from a van down by the river
  16. I need a hand full of the fliers so I can get them posted and handed out at some the places I deliver parts to. Plus I can start getting donations for the raffle. Sent from a van down by the river
  17. We had fliers made, and handed out some at the local MDA Car Show. We'll have the RTI ramp at the show. Still working on getting donations together for raffle.

  19. Stay safe! What service are you in?
  20. Actually there is no update unfortunately. I got deployed overseas for a while and I'll have to try to get it done when I get home later this summer.
  21. Any reason for going with a 10b for the sas? D44 has heavier aftermarket support. How are you planning to handle the width differences?
  22. 1995 Toyota t100 DX 4x4, it has the 3.4l v6, r150f five speed trans, it has a lock right in the rear axle, 4.5 inch suspension lift 35x12.50r17s. I bought the truck with a broken rear, bought a parts truck and pieced it back together. It's been a great rig so far, it just works, I have sourced a 10 bolt gm front axle for my future sas.
