Well I've had the 80 for about 4 weeks now, and didnt have anything to do this weekend so me and my girlfriend went wheeling for a while on an old fire road near where we live. The 80 is completely stock and i was amazed at how good it did. Had a jeep before, that was pretty well modified, and i must say that the LC did just as well as the jeep could have done.

Heres the pics i thought some of em turned out pretty good.

Yup... unstoppable right out of the box.

The first time I took mine out it had the PO's bald stock A/Ts, and the low-hanging spare in the stock location. Even with bottoming out a few times, it still went everywhere the modded Jeeps I was with did. And unlike the heavily modified YJ in front of me, it didn't didn't snap a drag link. :hillbilly:
 
Thanks for posting pics Boone. Looks like you two had fun. Absolutely nothing wrong with running a stock Cruiser.
:cheers:
 
Nope not at all i had a blast and she did too, when she wasnt slippin around in the mud trying to take pics for me hahaha. this summer should bring a lift and tires at least, i'm excited about that to say the least.
 
Boy, it's raining there on the right coast! I never had to wheel, let alone drive, my Cruiser in really wet conditions and I nearly envy you;)
Thanks for sharing.:cheers:

Made it a little easier for everyone to see. If you link the IMG instead of the URL it will show the picture in the post instead of a link.

Great pictures too! Wish we had enough rain to have trail like that...
 
Debbie, Edd this is off of a road that is on 321 heading towards lenoir. Right after you leave where the main construction is going on there is a road to the left. The trail is really sweet. Edd man we definately need to go out there soon it is a pretty cool tral.

could you post up some directions to this from charlotte. Trying to find as many trails in my new state as I can
 
lt1fire i dont really know the directions because i dont know the road names of the roads i just know how to get there by actually driving. If you ever want to come up for a ride let me know cell is 336-414-4657. Next time i go i will try and remember to look at the road names a little bit better.
 
Is this off of Richlands/Sampson rd. ?
 
It may be, as i said i'm not really sure of the road names. To get there you have to turn left off of 321 south just after the main construction and then take that road till it turns into dirt. there are places where there are som bridge crossings at the begining but you have to option to by pass them. then it goes on to several other creek crossings and then just the trail. i will probably go out again this weekend and i will be sure to get the road names.
 
took my recently purchased fj80 out this past weekend. had the wife and the 3 year old w/ me. lc did awsome! a squeeze through "devils throat" (off camber squeeze w/ minimal clearance) made them nervous. anywho i agree exceptional capability bone stock!!!!
 
those back logging roads are such a nice, typical southern appalachian adventure. I just love it. I used to do the same thing when i was attending WCU. I just wish i had the 80 then.

Wow, those trees and roads bring back memories.
Use to live in Boone off the Blue Ridge Parkway. I miss that area.
 
I'm liking this thread. Those pics look familiar and that trail seems like it might lead somewhere fun :grinpimp:

Any Western NCers that know of fun body-damage-safe trails for mildly modded 80s I would be greatful if you could point me toward them.

I work all summer just east of Asheville and the terrain of NC is so much more inviting than Fl's is :cool:
 
Ted when she gets up here shoot me a pm and we can do some wheeling. NCrockinfj lives right down the road from me and i'm sure he'd go too.

Nater, there are a couple that i know of but i'm sure there are plenty of trails out there. I've only had the 80 on 2 so far, the one in the pics and another trail/ dirt road that is very easy that goes up to a radio tower, it has a great view though.

I'm sure someone more knowledgable will chime in.

Ed man, we need to go for a ride this week. Hit me up.
