Default My local Jeep Club run to Barnwell Mountain (USA)

Starting this thread to share some pictures and videos from my local Jeep club run to Barnwell Mountain Recreational Area in Texas (for those that are not familier it is a southern state in USA).

I have been an active member of this club for last five years. Our club does several runs to various locations thru out the year. Most pictures and videos I take are from medium group as that is the level I run most of the time.
My Jeep only has 33" tires most hard group Jeeps are built for lot of body damage and run around 40" tires.

Here are some more. I will also find some hard group pics from one of my buddies camera and post them here. In my opinion the major difference here between easy, medium and hard are in how your Jeep is built not just how big tires.

Also another factor is your willingness to accept damage to your Jeep. Most of my friends running hard group are willing to accept damage, they are heavily armored on sides with steel fenders etc. They run Dana 60 or similar axles front and back along with an Atlas transfer case. If you run a Dana 60 or similar axles it is almost a given you will have at least a 38" or bigger tire.

Here are some more pics and videos.

Oh and the most important is the driver capabilities. A good driver who can pick the right lines and knows his/her Jeeps capability and can read the trail and understand how the Jeep reacts to certain situations (terrain, speed, condition if wet or dry) can do a whole lot more on 33" tires sometimes as much as 38" tires. My Jeep flexes really well and thus I have distinct advantage and I can do most things with ease that some of the friends with 37" tires struggle with.

Is this a paid event? Or is this venue free for all with a 4x4, or part of club?

What % of these vehicles run on lockers/lsd, or just tyre rubber+V6/8 power?

The red-tub+green-rollcage, is it road legal? Or towed to the event?

Whats Desi way

Santosh,
This is a paid venue (anyone can pay and go to this venue) but the event itself has no charge for members. Non-members are welcome as eventually they will become a member after having so much fun and enjoying the company and help from other members.

I say about 70-80% of the vehicles have lockers/lsd, possibly more. 98% of the Jeeps are 4.0L I6 (straight six) engine. Rest are V8 (custom) and factory I4 in some.

The red-tub+green-rollcage Jeep is not street legal as that person has not registered it for road use. It should not be an issue to register for street use though. It will not drive very good on road with those big offroad only tires etc. Also most big Jeeps like that have complete hydro steering that does not do very good on the street.
Oh and it was most definitely towed to the event. Any thing larger than 35" tires most people tow it to the event.

Desi Way actually started out as a Dazy Way but now that I am introducing Indians to offroading here (I took two more families out with me last time), I am calling it a Desi Way :-) just they way it is spelled. Oh and it is a name of the trail in the offroad park.
