Iowa Wheeling: Timber Ridge Trail Ride Sept. 25-27, 2009
Posted 14 April 2009 - 08:28 AM
What: Timber Ridge Trail Ride
Where: Timber Ridge Ranch, Castana, Iowa (Western Iowa)
When: Sept 25-27, 2009
2500 Acres. 60+ miles of trails
Great place. This is a members only place, and is only open to the public a couple of times per year... And night wheeling is allowed, which in many ORV parks is not...
Dual Range needed and LSD preferred.
Last years form is still out there.... the only thing different are all the dates....
Here's the Timber Ridge site too...
and their old site....
Do a search in this forum for Castana. Lots of threads on past years events...

I had a LSD in it that trip, but went to the welded diff after that...
One trip MorganM was there with his '88 wagon. He was open in the rear, and made for some intersting times getting the right lines that wouldn't lift up 1 front and 1 rear tire... and that was the first time I ever used my winch, was pulling him up a slippery bank next to a water hole.....

Definately without proper rig. How would you fair a stock jeep wrangler would do.
Not too bad. there have been lots of stock jeeps there....
the Just Jeeps of Omaha Club usually has a number members at this event.

hmm/ maybe i need to borrow a welded diff to put in the rescue wagon. still long ways off.
Noooo thats what the brat is for. I thought that is why you lifted it in the first place.
Posted 27 July 2009 - 04:21 PM
Still thinking about this. It would be fun, but I don't want my Brat sitting there beat up, or broken down, so I would have to just do a little bit of it.
Or, how would rescue wagon do if i put a welded diff in? okay, or not the right tires? at least that one i wouldnt lose out on damage really.

Brent, I think a stock soob with a welded diff will still have issues with clearace....

what about my 92ss legacy, put a welded rear in there, it might do okay. its getting replaced any day now, so it needs to be beat on.....i could care less as long as it makes it back home running, body is rusting apart.
actually, I believe we have a 2 speed transfer case as a requirement...

I'll make an honest effort to attend next year Mick. (But where will Indy ride?)
there's some other club members he has ridden with and he liked to do so in the past, "because the BRat cou'n't do the hill climbs", or I made him cry trying to keep up with the other rigs

Refunds for pre-registrations will be granted until September 1, 2009
There are no rain dates for this event. No refunds will be made at the event. If it rains, the owner of Timber Ridge will not allow trail use."

lights are mounted. leaky roof is mostly fixed. recovery box mounted.
Need to add my toolbag, and switch the spare with one of the current wheels/tires as the spare is better shape...
still want to cover the back of the tail light so the connections don't get all caked with mud....
Posted 22 September 2009 - 09:20 AM
hmm i dont want dents or broken parts.
you need to lift the rescue wagon, and beat the snot out of it....
