No kidding, never woulda thought but that's good to know if I were trek my way out there.

Nice rig! I'm digging the exo roll cage. Is that a straight axle in the front or the twin I-beam set up?

Early bronco.d44 and 9 inch.

Ohio has lots and lots of trees, you have to fit between those trees while off camber trying to climb over a mud covered rock with a tree root in the middle.

Ohio trails are tight and not very full size friendly, not much on the east coast will be.

We don't have miles and miles of trails, so you either have dirt road, or really right technical stuff for the most part.

I see what you mean, this is valuable advice! I appreciate it.

One thing I might do is change the front diff on my truck. Right now I have a dana 44, but it's open. I'll either put a trac loc (like I have in the rear) or an ez locker to better handle the mud.

The set up now is the Chrysler 9.25 in the rear w/ a trac loc and a dana 44 in front that's an open diff. It's gotten me wherever I want to go so far (and it's been on some crazy stuff), but it might b best to switch the front end out to better handle what you r descrbing.

What r your thoughts on this?

I think before you do anything you need to get it out on Ohio trails and see what you think you need it to do.

Donnie's on point. You'll learn quick that ohio has a lot of tight trails. But as he mentioned you have some options, I'd second the Phoenix recommendation.

--btw, Welcome!!--

You know you have been on here for over 9 years and I don't think we have ever been on the trail together
