Question Superlift 4x4 park in Arkansas

I'm thinking about going down to Arkansas next year to the Superlift offroading park, and i was wondering if any of you have anything to say about that. Also does anyone here know about a good 4x4 park in WA?

Alex

Yes. I just went got back from Hot Springs yesterday. I went with sureshot40sw and some of the Arkansas Crawlers.

You need 33's, and a rear locker MINIMUM. Even with those things you're not going to be able to run alot of the trails there. Make sure you are with a group and have tow points front and rear.

This was the shakedown run for Phil's Explorer... and let me tell ya a big dawg run at Superlift isnt the best for a shakedown run. Here are a few pics i took. He's running my wheels/tires at the moment as we are trading tires but did not have time to dismount and remount everything. The Scout is a big block linked front rear on 44" TSL's and the CJ is basically the same linked front/rear on 44" Boggers-

I went back agin yesterday and found some "easier" trails across the street... they are more loose shale and dirt type trails with some SICK hillclimbs... damn near rolled off the side of a mountain while I was at it.... it was a LOOOONG way down...

anyway... here's some pics... it was the Superlift 4xAdventure series...












these were at the filming of Superlift TV...









John broke all four steering arm bolts....

Sweet pics. The black rhino lined explorer (or what's left of it) is sick. I've seen it on Pirate and wanted to see some more of it.

Wow, extreme trucks. Extreme Off-road performance. The only thing I added to my truck is a Light Bar. What can I do to become like that?
