    Hi and thanks for the add. Just wanting to know if there is anywhere near me to go off roading. Uwharrie don't open til March. Had my jeep about a year and love it. I live in Madison which is near Greensboro and winston kinda ... I don't know any other jeep owners. 20191231_164851.jpg

    Nice Rubicon! Uwharrie is about it these days. Many of us travel to TN, KY, WV and and such to go wheeling. We’ve lost places over the last few years.

    @Desertfox1023 is heading to Kairos soon, might could tag along with him. That’s a great place to ride not terribly far away.

    Another Jeep owner in Wentworth, plus one of my good friends is also in Wentworth over near James.

    Patriot Mountain is right outside of Boone. Small place and not very challenging for those of us who are somewhat modified but it's a great place to get your feet wet off road. Joel Church is the owner and a heck of a nice guy.

    I mostly wheel in my dreams and on NC4x4.com :lol:. But in real life, this year I plan to go to Uwharrie, Potts, and hit the DBBB. I'd like to hit Harlan again this year, but it will depend on work and funds.

    Took my 01 Xj with a 3” lift all over Uwharrie except 2 trails.

    I want to take my stock 2018 frontier pro4x out there. Little nervous about how it’ll do and effing it up lol.

    It would be fine on most of the trails. Might drag a little on new erosion berms early in the year.

    Sounds like a good trip! My brother and I did about 75% of the DBBB last year (fuel pump failure held us up). We are planning to go back and finish the whole loop this time.

    You will do fine all over the park. That truck can do whatever you want out there with some carefull spotting but like already said will drag some on the erosion berms. We are always bringing stock frontiers and xterras with us during our runs.

    Sure man. So I’m actually the president of NOAS. The Nissan off-road association of the southeast. You should look us up on Facebook and join. Or next club run is windrock next weekend. But we will do Uwharrie once it opens up again. Lost of guys up in nc in our club that can help you out too
