    Do You Wheel Anymore?

    I sold my wheeler in 2016 and ride a dual sport motorcycle now. As I got older upkeep on the rig just became too much work. Honestly I don't miss wheeling since I still get out there in other ways.

    Do you wheel anymore?
    If not, when did you quit?
    Why did you quit?
    Think you'll ever get back into it?

        If you mean going on trail rides with a built crawler no. If you mean piss pound every vehicle In own in my pits, letting Jesus drive my leaf spring snowmobiles, launching my rzr off 4’ tall jumps, racing gokarts with plastic wheels ect then yeah.

          Still wheel, and will until I physically can't anymore. Got rid of the trailered TJ before I moved to Texas and built my wife a 16 JKUR. Not as fun, but also alot less work & maintenance. I picked up a new Honda Talon a few months ago and am building a short course car out of it. If I couldn't play in the dirt in some form or another I think I would wither up and die!

            Not as much as I'd like but been doing more mellow trails since I don't want the expense of a tow rig, trailer etc. Also been focusing more on race photos. For now, my little JK on 35's gets me out.

              I parted out my jeep 10 years ago. I've done some wheeling as a passenger since then. I'm actually looking to buy something 4x4 again as my family is in a better place now.

                    Why did you quit? - My son was born and wheeling went to the wayside for a while. It got to the point where looking at my rig (and what needed to be done just to get it to the trail) made me feel exhausted, so it got sold.
                    Think you'll ever get back into it? - Maybe? Now that my son is old enough, we ride quads together on a regular basis, so that scratches the itch for the time being.

                        I wheel a few times a year, not as much as I would if I lived where it was convenient. No room to store a crawler or trailer, so wife and I get our middle-of-nowhere fix in JK on 37s that we have to drive to/from the trails (i.e., I'm not your rig-floppin' hero). Hope to get out of the Bay Area before I retire, maybe within a couple years, but not counting those unhatched chickens just yet. Would love to drive < 1/2 hour to trails.

                        Built a DR650 (reliable though heavy dualsport bike) a few years ago, but back pain ruins longer rides, so really can't enjoy the bike like I'd hoped - I should probably sell it Want to pull my Baja out of storage, knock 15 years of dust off & rebuild it into a Manxter DSBE replica for high-speed shenanigans. That's probably as close to a DS bike as I'll get going forward.

                        Rambling . . . TL/DR = yes, I wheel, but not nearly enough

                          Yeah I wheel. Not really for the sake of driving over stuff anymore, more with a destination or activity goal. Hunting, fishing, camping, find a plane wreck, etc. I have a 92 runner kinda stock, rear locker, taco take off wheels and tires, bumpers and sliders. Its a hunting and camping rig for the most part.

                          Working on resurrecting a second gen 2wd that was sas'd with low attention to detail, beaten mercilessly for a couple years and abandoned in the woods with no hood for a couple more. It's a slow process.

                          And my DD superduty is getting more and more offroad usable...building a flatdeck, workin on a winch bumper, bigger tires. Mostly making a more capable but not BGTL type rig.

                            Yes; but only on fire roads/country roads/backcountry roads-trails.

                              I still do, just not nearly as much as I used to.
