closest "real" off road park to me is rausch creek. over 3 hours away. i've heard of a few other good spots closer to me though, i just havin't had a chance to check 'em out

My Ranger is my DD and I off-road it every day for work, I work in the woods and have to use my truck all the time in the woods on old roads and stuff, poor girl has over 100,000 kms on her and she's only 3 yrs old, lol, most of those kms are on dirt too! Holds up to the abuse like a champ tho, I try not to be too rough on it.

I off road the hell out of mine. Haven't had anything major break yet, and I put roughly 20,000 miles a year on it.

Offroading and not breaking things is the definition of an oxymoron.
