Is it legal though? I forget where exactly, but some guys went wheeling after they dredged the Delaware... from what I remember of the pics, it wasn't pretty.

Speedfreak, if you don't have a recovery point on the rear, you might want to pick up a cheap hook off of the internet and attach it to your frame. I think I picked one up for my old Bronco for like $15 shipped. I would not pull anybody out by their bumpers, I've seen too many bad photos of what could happen on these ranger sites.

That will work. Hardware stores sell them too as well as hook with spring tabs that keep the rope or strap from falling off the hook before you have a chance to put tension on it.

If it's definitely legal, I'd be up for checking out the trails near the Delaware as well.

There's no mud in Jackson right now. I was out there yesterday and the only mud that I found was a 4" deep x 2' long puddle. I could take you guys to a few spots that are cool for small hill climbs, then we could explore some other areas I haven't seen yet, if you're interested. Though, it might end up being long, dusty trail rides for the most part.
