As long as you had fun, that's what it's all about!! Don't worry about your stock subie, I've had plenty of fun stompin around some gnarly stuff in my stock brats. I like to try to see what a stock brat'll do in some cases, its a learning process.

Looks like a fun place man. Glad you got it out and got dirty! To me it don't matter what you offroad; it's the fact that you offroad that matters! :D

Were you stuck there? Prolly a lot more steep and deep in that hole than it looks on camera from that angle. Pictures rarely do you justice. Did you try flooring it up there next time? :lol:

My theory is.....if you can still move then your not stuck! :lol:

As I see it you could have backed up so you wouldn't be "stuck" :grin:

Looks like a great area
Wish it was by me :D

Good luck

yea your right. i wasn't stuck i could roll back. the hill was quite steep but not as steep as previous hills i have climbed, but the difference was that this dirt was real soft and real bumpy from cars digging holes and stuff. the last time i did it i didn't wuss out i went all out bouncing up and down, stuff flying around in the car :D im gonna go back out some time and explore the place some more. :)

Search through what M+S tread patterns are avalable. Some manufactures, like Duralon, make some pretty aggressive M+S tires.

look for winterforce M+S they are the most aggressive 13's ive found, i have them on my car and they rule in the mud, i assume they are excellent in snow too hence the name. here is a pic, check them out.
